    Barring a playoff appearance in 2015 I think Molitor is in position to be the next Twins manager. He is familiar with all the prospects in the minors because of his role as a roving instructor which...

    MLBTraderumors outlook on the Twins

    A breakdown on the Twins offseason outlook was posted at mlbtraderumors.com today. I think it is worth the read and pretty accurate for where the team currently sits and includes some options for...

    I would be surprised if the posting fee is higher than Darvish's.

    The Yankees have been trying to decrease payroll and need to save money to secure Cano as Nick pointed out.

    The Red Sox...

    Agreed that it is unlikely they land Tanaka but in order to save face with the fans they need to make a move such as this. I could see the attendance drop by more than 30 percent in 2015 if they...

    The biggest glaring hole right now is starting pitching. Until this is fixed nothing else matters. Tanaka, if he produces as advertised, would be a huge step in the right direction. If they are...

    The Twins have stated that they were well below there anticipated team issued salary cap this year. I believe by around 20 million based on estimated 2013 revenue. If you add in the 25+ million...

    Don't tell that to Dennis Eckersley, Eric Gagne, Neftali Feliz, or Craig Kimbrel. Your sentiment is fair and shared by others in the baseball community but I think relievers can have a large impact...

    Does anyone really trust Kazmir's production this year? I haven't looked into his actual numbers the past few years to see what changed this year. Is it just a health thing with him? Obviously he...

    You do realize that 3 different players you list as "our players" that we could have were the results of consecutive trades starting with Santana? It isn't feasible to think we could have Santana...
  10. I agree with Seth's response to this. Also...

    I agree with Seth's response to this. Also wanted to add that he throws all his pitches from the same 3/4 slot which makes pitch recognition difficult. I think he got a little lucky on his HR/FB...
  11. I haven't looked up any specific examples but I...

    I haven't looked up any specific examples but I would expect some of the stud players drafted either late in the 1st round or later rounds may have dropped because of signability reasons and then the...
  12. What needs to happen for a 2014 turnaround? (Player additions/improvements)

    I've reached my limit talking about what is wrong with the current Twins ballclub. So instead I want to discuss what would need to happen over the next 365 days to be watching the Twins playing...
  13. Great post! I think the big difference between...

    Great post! I think the big difference between the approach you lay out here and the Twins current state is that once the majority of the pieces are in place, an "ace" pitcher is not outside the...

    Late October baseball would be pretty amazing. I wouldn't mind not being able to feel my toes at a Twins game that wasn't in April!

    My last post was mostly clarifying that I am not blaming Smith on the bad year in 2013. Anytime his name is brought up people just assume that someone is throwing him under the bus for poor...
  16. I'm not trying to say that the past three years...

    I'm not trying to say that the past three years have been Smith's fault but if Smith was still in charge and got the expanded payroll he wanted (and likely needed looking at the current team) we may...

    Honestly, after the offseason moves made by TR I was pretty confident that Gardy would be back for at least another year. His track record is pretty impressive when looking at the rosters he was...

    This has already happened back in '98 and obviously, the game would still end in a tie after the lights go out at the Metrodome Target Field in the 9th inning.

    Hicks has shown a history of doing very well after about a year of an adjustment period to the advanced pitching at each level. I personally think development-wise he should have been in AAA all...
  20. If someone else already brought this up I...

    If someone else already brought this up I apologize, I didn't read every post on here.

    Maybe the reason the Twins aren't getting the close calls is because the pitch before missed by 2 feet as...

    I've been in the Twin cities for 3 years now. The first two years I attended about 20 games a year and then I finally decided to get season tickets for this season... Mostly because I want to...

    I agree he likely won't be catching full time from here on out but I think he will still be behind the plate for more games than he's not. If I were to set an over/under for games caught next year I...

    1. Mauer will still be catching in 2015. I would bet my house on it.
    2. I don't see Dozier being traded within the next year. Rosario is yet to play at AAA and with Dozier playing like this there...

    I don't mind the losses because its improving the future while the current product doesn't really change. With that said, in the middle of games I am not thinking that I hope they blow the lead. I...

    The Pujols example for taking less money doesn't really hold water. Miami doesn't offer no trade clauses in their contracts (for reasons obvious from last season's fire sale) and "the machine" made...
