    This makes too much sense. Move him to 1B now and enjoy having a healthy, sweet-swinging Mauer for the rest of his contract. We won't be competing next year anyway so whoever plays catcher next year...
  2. Terry Ryan is not Bill Smith. He keeps things...

    Terry Ryan is not Bill Smith. He keeps things cheap for the Pohlads and has helped make a bright future for this team. The people to point fingers at? The cheap, aforementioned owners of this team....

    [/B]We are taking about baseball here Shane... taking care of your body to a large extent is by no means a part of this sport. Any baseball player would agree to that.

    Doumit should be off the team sometime this winter, so that will solve that dilemma. In regard to Mauer, I really would prefer if he was done catching, for good. Save his head and lower body and put...

    The Twins called him an ace well... Because who did we have who was better? Who could we have gotten (keeping in mind we are talking about the Twins) that was? Diamond had a year with good luck that...

    A fair point, but I think you are pointing out the fact that Vargas is the better PROSPECT, while Hicks had the better year. Either one did deserve it however.

    1. Alabama IS the SEC All-Conference team essentially. 2. The Jaguars would destroy the SEC All Conference team. You are talking older, physically matured players who are playing against college...

    Dozier at his best is a slightly above average second baseman. His OPS (.729) qualifies for (tied for) 11th among 25 qualified individuals, but not much above the average (.705). Is he a good player?...

    In terms of team production, there is no reason to compare Trout and Buxton. Baseball is a team sport, so one great player will not lead to the promised land. The Angels screwed up by taking flyers...

    Why does Gardenhire have to go? Could any manager really do better with this "crop" of players the past two years (won't count 2011 - very much bad luck then turned to crap subsequently)? I would...

    I hope they don't even consider trading Rosario. I personally think Dozier is not as good as he has been the past couple months and is likely somewhere in between what he was last year and this year,...

    2015 lineup:
    C: Pinto (Not great defensively, but he's better than Doumit or Herrmann)
    1B: Mauer (permanent by this point)
    2B: Rosario (Trade Dozier within next calendar year)
    SS: Santana or...

    Ryan does not need to go, calm yourself Thrylos. Ryan is trying to be optimistic and tell fans/media not to worry. I wouldn't be surprised whatsoever if neither of Ryan's statements come to fruition.

    I think he stays at 2B and our starting OF consists of Hicks, Buxton, and Arcia by opening day 2015.

    Hrbek hands down. Morneau was on pace to be better until the concussion, but post-kneetohead Morneau just had no chance. Both are great players though, and will forever be Twins to Minnesota fans.

    This is pointless to do until at least the season is done, or even after depending on how the offseason is handled by our front office. I guarantee you we do not see any of our top prospects (Sano,...

    Guys, he was going to be a FA and if the Twins want him back, he will be back here. The fact that we were to trade him for anything makes this a good trade. I wish Morneau (and Liriano!) the very...

    Josmil Pinto = young Ryan Doumit. So... you trade or cut Doumit whenever Pinto is ready. Boom.

    Awesome reporting Seth! What do you think the Cedar Rapids rotation looks like next year? Do you think Stewart cracks it??

    I agree that no one should get the blame on the Twins side for Liriano's new found success. It hurts to see him do it in a different uniform.. But that fact that he may be unmasking his true...

    Let him test the market and if he wants anything over 7-8 million a year.. Let him walk. He's no longer an above average player and for the Twins to just keep him around after a year in which he only...
