Deduno is at least worth watching -- he's interesting! If you're not going to win much anyone, I'd rather watch strikeouts, wild pitches, walks, and unpredictable ball movement, where anything can...

Slama would be crazy to re-sign with the Twins once he's a free agent. They obviously have never believed in him. I predict he's signed by the A's, and I hope he does well there.

He's not going to make them winners this year, and he's not going to help make them winners in the future. But if he makes people smile in an otherwise dreary year, that's not bad.
If he started...

Good point. I bet there isn't a team in the league that wouldn't have signed him to this deal. But the Twins offer him the best shot and making the major league rotation. No one would give him...

Yeah I think he's just saying proceed with caution with Japanese players and scout them better than we did Nishioka.
I like the idea of gambling on a...
Sniff. The selfless generosity. They're all heart. They were still high on his future, but they loved him so much they let him go.

Actually I don't think he got shrewed THAT bad...

"I would say now is not the time to trade either guy. Let contending teams become more and more desperate toward the deadline and drive up the value of our assets."
That may be true in general...
I'm a little worried that the recent respectable streak is built on a mirage. I agree the offense and bullpen seem fine, but remain very concerned about starting pitching. Can we really expect the...

Good point about Willingham's slow fielding on the Pujols rbi. He didn't seem in any hurry to throw.
I don't see why that Bourjos fly wasn't catchable though. Willingham wasn't running hard, he...
