    It can't hurt!

    For those pessimists in group 2, at this time last year, Pinto was barely a fringe prospect, Deduno was a curiosity, and Dozier was a failed shortstop. Thielbar was a nice story...

    "If the Twins could deal maybe Burton and/or Duensing, Tonkin and Hoffman would get a shot."

    I seem to remember the two of them being on the trading block last July and getting little to no...

    With catcher being such an important position and with few projectable catching options in the system at this time, I was thinking the Twins signed Suzuki to start until June and then Pinto would be...

    Has Pinto's rookie contract clock started ticking? I remember him being a September call-up last year which does not count toward the total because of the expanded rosters? So then we will probably...

    Listen, I want to see the young kids as much as anyone. Especially given the rather mundane veteran alternatives. But, I think it is more beneficial for the team to make the kids earn playing time...

    There is a thin line between loyalty and stubborness. The Twins front office flirts with that line often. Not only did the Twins attempt to bring in every ex-twin looking for a job this off-season,...

    Players like Bonifacio are almost always tradeable in July for cash and low to mid-range prospects which make signing him even less of a risk. Signing a player like Boney who seems like a gamer...

    If we are hoping for bounce backs or career years, motivation moves. And nothing motivates like money and competition. Pavano, Baker, Blackburn, Mays (injury) were never as good after signing...

    Question: Is anything but pride keeping players from choking up or moving to a lighter bat as their bat slows? On a related note, if corking the bat to make the barrel lighter increases bat speed,...
  11. Totally agree!

    Very well put. Game situation stats have to be the next frontier of sabremetrics. The term "luck" gets thrown out on this blog to explain discrepancies from predicted outcomes far too often in...

    Delmon Young and Jesus Montero were "can't miss" too. Ask the Royals about "can't miss prospects". The question that should be asked is if we have a contingency plan in case Sano turns out to be...

    I believe Laudner was an All Star as well! And I'd consider Sorrento a reg with Twins/Cleveland.

    I've liked Florimon quite a bit. I went to a Deduno start last year, and Florimon had a couple big hits, an opposite field triple to the gap, and several stellar defensive plays. He basically...

    Your logic regarding tradeability actually support the trade. The Royals dealt a potential star for two years of an ace and a run at the post season. I would hardly call this year a waste. The...

    The White Sox got a top 2 prospect, a potential 5-tooler, from a division rival. If the Twins swung a deal to get a player like Avisail Garcia, the twinsdaily server would completely implode with...

    This is why I almost afraid to read comments some times. What exactly should TR have done in the year and a half back on the job? I know spend 250 million on Greinke and Sanchez, because they would...

    Do we know for sure that Pelfrey was offered only single-year contracts? Could he have turned down multiple years in order to go back on the market after proving he was healthy and effective? Seems...
