    I'm not saying I expect Santana to start (or that I expect him to stay down)-I just think you're linking two unrelated things. Nunez' bat and theoretical ability to play the INF has value on a major...

    There's only "no reason" to make this deal if you don't see an advantage to having a bench bat that's got a nice platoon split against lefties and who is (vaguely) able to play all around the...

    I don't see that as the implication-definitely not with the certainty you have. I don't foresee Nunez "blocking" Santana in any sense (unless Nunez is hitting well outside his norms-which I'll take)....

    I'll try to keep myself from posting the same thing in every thread, but "an offseason" in this case contained surgery, rehab, and an involuntary move to a new job with all different coworkers and a...

    While I appreciate the point you're trying to make, I'm struggling to find a connection between Worley/Correia/Pelfrey and Hughes/Nolasco beyond "Starters who the Twins acquired over an offseason and...

    Out of curiosity, under a hypothetical situation in which this review goes public, would you accept a conclusion from scouts and management that stated:

    "Players return from injury differently,...

    I'd like to request you name the people you feel need to be held accountable (fired) for these failures and explain, with some measure of specificity, why they're so awful. So long as we're calling...

    Remember that a 24 year old Vance Worley was planning a life featuring him, a fiancee and home ownership in Pennsylvania two short years ago and being sent away from that happened to coincide...

    Wasn't referring to 2013 or any projections, more to a variety of the offseason moves, the injury bug that's struck and the idea that Castellanos has any business playing 3rd. Obviously, I don't...

    Coworker of mine told me that we'd have better weather in March than we did in February. But there it goes snowing again, and it's been cold. I guess by some metrics it was more temperate, but it was...

    Not sure if I disagree with you in principle on trading for Bailey, but I have to ask-given the glut SPs currently scheduled to hit FA in 2015, is the prospect haul required to outbid other teams for...

    Sorry, but I find this unrealistic and very shortsighted. There are few good options available for one year contracts at this time-especially in positions of need (which I'll go ahead and define in...

    And again, this is why I feel as though we're talking past each other. There is plenty of reason to believe many or all of them would perform somewhat poorly. The issue I have is not with the idea...

    Marta-Sorry that I wasn't clear. I was referring to TR's spending habits in the Metrodome and under Carl Pohlad, not Target Field and Carl's heirs.

    I didn't think I was that unclear, I apologize if it came across as overly confusing. To begin by clarifying my stance: It was reasonable to assume the 2013 rotation would show substantial...

    I never phonepost, but had to chime in. This is staggeringly inaccurate. TR acquired 3 pitchers last season with the intent all would be starting the season (or reasonably close from rehab) in the...

    I wasn't sure what route I was going to take with this. I could point out that Humber passed through waivers before the Twins let him loose in the offseason-literally nobody wanted him. I could point...
