    If there is something that seems wrong to me, is that the manager makes health related decisions. I am no doctor, but I can imagine that at this point trained and medical professionals know tell-all...

    I agree with you, coming from Gardy that's unusual. More than willfully screwing up, maybe they sense a lack of effort intensity, like "I've got my contract so I don't have to work that hard" thing....

    Also they used the 40-men roster to protect players that they did not intend to call up this year (Kepler, Polanco (well, now they were forced too), Vargas). It is not a criticism, they had to do it...

    I was thinking the same thing. If they DFA Florimon, Beresford or Bernier are OK options as utility guys.

    You know what. The game is already kind of lost and our bull pen is overused. Let him there earn his money until his arm falls off. What to do with this guy? Performance wise, he is the least...

    If Pino goes to Rochester, does that mean that Deduno returns to the rotation? Or they will promote May and send Polanco down when the rotation spot comes?

    There are plenty of pitchers that have successful careers with the type of stuff Pino has. Probably he will not be the ace of the team, but he is not a "pitch to contact" that gets lucky for a while....

    “When he decides they’re ready to do this, he will make that decision more than I will. You know what I mean? There’s way more to it than what’s just black and white and right out in front. There’s a...

    It seems to me that there are 2 aspects of the problem: One is Hicks struggles, the change from switch hitting, should he be demoted?, etc. On that aspect, pretty much everyone agrees that he should...

    Gardy's answer the only thing that says to me is that he is going to make the next start. Basically he is saying I have him in my roster, he is going to start. Not really a lot of praise in there....

    I have some optimism, not for the reasons that you state, but for the schedule. The first half of the Twins schedule is really tough, including the next couple of weeks that includes a road trip with...

    The other candidate would be Brooks Raley. The chances of him making it to Minnesota are rather slim, or should be slim. Although, with this management of the roster, you never know..

    You know, I know it's not good for him, but at this point go and bring Kepler. At least an outfielder that know how to track a fly ball. And maybe can hit better than Hermann.

    Talking about Pino, have you seen what he did in Rochester today? CG shutout, 3 H, 0 BB, 4 SO, 93 pitches, 70 for strikes. Wow!

    Not that much afraid of Sanchez of Verlander and Sanchez, but afraid that our starters will wake up the Tigers line up. Well, and afraid of Verlander and Sanchez too.

    I remember his fastball being around 91-92 mph. Yesterday, if the radar was accurate, he was reaching 89 mph. For a guy that relays in his change-up, losing those 3 mph could be a serious problem....

    I tend to agrree with Thrylos in this one, because it is not only Pelffrey, but all of the starters are struggling right now. Having said that, I don't think there will be any move before May in that...

    [QUOTE=Jim Crikket;191096]The obvious name missing (and perhaps what could lead to a runaway win by "other") is Byron Buxton. He's certainly not likely to break camp with the big club, but when you...

    This is a very good point. Extremely short starts (4 innings or less) not only tires more the bullpen, but also exposes the worst part of it. Either the designated long man is overworked, or the...

    One thing the article doesn't address is that time has passed. The Gardy that led the young 2002-2006 teams is not today's Gardy. It happens to all of us. Patience grows thinner. Communication...
