    Why not Trevor May? If Pino fizzles, bring up the kid and keep that coffee pouring. It's not like the Twins are real worried about their playoff position, not with this pitching staff. Let everybody...

    Give that man a cuppa coffee! Drink it while it's hot, Jorge!

    Good observations all around. I'm in the keep him, play him camp. Arcia is a major leaguer now; he's got to learn to control his emotions at this level, where the pressure is highest. Young sluggers...

    I was at the game last night to see Yohan Pino's debut. Looked like maybe 10k or so fans. Pino doesn't strike me as a flash in the pan. Unlike Albers, I didn't get the feeling that I was witnessing...
  5. Oh, and on Kyle Gibson... What amazing growth he...

    Oh, and on Kyle Gibson... What amazing growth he has shown over the last year. He came to town sporting an excellent sinking fastball, a good curve, and little idea what to do with them. I watched...

    All I can say is, Clayton Kershaw sure is lucky he pitches for the Dodgers!

    What an embarrassing society we live in. Memo to future generations: I apologize for all the morons that think pot is a big deal. Guy tokes a joint and gets treated like he robbed a string of...

    Why not go with Pino? He's a starter, and he gets guys out. What does it cost a .500 team to try out a pitcher? If he flops, send him packing after a fair chance.

    Meanwhile, I'd like to see how...

    True. Williams held his hands where Arcia does after his hitch, about even with his ribs. Not currently kosher, but whatever works. Adjusting to the high pitch must be easier if you start with your...

    Always liked Jason Kubel. Unfortunately, pro baseball with few exceptions is a game for guys in their 20's, and you have be lucky enough to stay fairly healthy even to stick around to 30. Kubel did...

    It's remarkable to me how similar Oswaldo Arcia's swing is to a lefty version of Harmon Killebrew. Same powerful hip turn, same massive thrust of powerful forearms. Almost the same extension on the...

    AJ, thanks for your excellent write-ups on baseball and on your perspective on sports in your life. Your articles have been a pleasure to read, so I hope you keep letting us in on your perceptions....

    I wonder if Correia would be any good out of the pen. If he didn't have to pace himself, maybe his heater would tick up to the mid 90's like Perkins. Just a thought.
  14. Haven't seen much video on Gordon, but he does...

    Haven't seen much video on Gordon, but he does seem to have a nice swing. He's fast, has a rocket arm, and reportedly is very baseball savvy. Finally a star shortstop? Here's hoping.

    Ortiz was 0 for 4 in his AAA debut? Alas, another dream of greatness goes poof!

    On a completely unrelated note, one of the kids on my 13U team (also named Danny) hit a lead-off home run, then...

    Pitching talent is always the coin du realme in the MLB. Right now it looks like the Twins have lots of potential talent in the minors, but history reveals that most of that promise will evaporate...

    Other than Buehrle, your examples had other pitches that made them special. Frank Viola did in fact have an excellent heater, clocked as high as 96, and as many of us recall, his circle change was...

    Depends what kind of game you want to play. Today all we really know about Kolek is that he's a big, strong kid that can throw a baseball incredibly fast. Can he learn to control a curve, slider,...

    Bingo. Kubel's time in the majors looks to be about done, same goes for Willingham. Pinto, Arcia and Parmelee need to play. With very few exceptions, baseball is a young man's game. The Twins have no...

    I disagree. Aaron Nola's delivery transfers power correctly in sequence from push, then turn, then flip. His flip is out front of his right shoulder, so there is no strain to his rotator cuff and...

    I had exactly the same thought regarding Freeland's control. How do you spot the ball within inches when you're spinning and falling off laterally? Francisco Liriano is a good example of what happens...

    I don't like the way he finishes off balance. A hard-hit line drive could hit him right in the butt, or in his throwing shoulder. I also don't like the recoil on his follow through. Inconsistent...

    Why would you take Beede over Nola, a guy with an effortless delivery and pinpoint control? Go with the guy that's ready to throw strikes and miss some bats!

    Nola reminds me of Jered Weaver. Easy slinging motion, pinpoint control. See how he bent that ball from just outside the zone to nip the inside corner? If that's typical of his command, then this guy...
