    One thing about Pelfrey's slider though - it's actually a cutter. I discovered this when I did a "look at all the cutters the Twins' staff throw!" for Twinkie Town early during the 2013 season:...
  2. Article: Trade Talk: Tampa Bay Rays

    Nope, players are only in the game if they happened to play in the big leagues during the prior season. I believe it's due to the contract that the player's union has with The Show.

    However, there...

    I just got The Show as well. I noticed De Vries' crazy-high rating relative to the other starters as well, but it was likely due to his decent ERA and great control.

    I, however, am never satisfied...
  5. I agree, the Twins really should have committed...

    I agree, the Twins really should have committed to a rebuild. Yes, it's a bit embarrassing for it to happen just after moving into a new ballpark, but when the current group isn't getting it done,...

    While collecting those stances was amusing last season, it would be nice if I have to add only one more to the end of that sequence. Glad to see that pic made it into this article!

    This mimics what Parker said about Willingham, but people used Hit Tracker to show that Mauer's 2009 career year benefited from a bunch of "Just Enough/Lucky" home runs, far more than he usually hit....

    The idea is good in theory, especially with giving fewer innings to all the pitchers coming back from injury, but as jmlease1 said above, Gardy and Anderson would never do it. They'd probably cite...
  9. This seems to agree with what I've been told by...

    This seems to agree with what I've been told by Dave St. Peter... the Twins believe they are middle of the road when it comes to advanced statistics.

    One thing I had St. Peter tell me is that the...

    Just something to be aware of... typically when a pitcher is having a throwing session, it means nothing more than that. As in, he's literally just playing catch, and not actually pitching.

    If the...

    Um, Parra and Span are pretty similar stat-wise. The only difference is that Parra has primarily played the corner outfield, whereas Span has been a center fielder. Arizona won't take Span.

    Sorry, really should have condensed my thoughts....

    My boss from the Twins (I'm an usher at Target Field, for those that didn't know) gave us our own Terry Ryan Q&A back in August. Here are the...

    In response to some of the "What advanced statistics do you use?" questions... good luck with that. I interviewed Dave St. Peter back in February and I asked him that very question and he was not...

    Sorry if someone has already covered this, but...

    2b) I believe the Twins said that they would like to add a coach that speaks Spanish.

    3a) Yes there is, his name is Jack Goin. His name is on...

    It seems pretty clear that the Twins don't trust Slama's stuff. From what I've heard, he has 3 pitches: a straight, low-90s fastball, a pretty slow slurve, and a splitter. It also sounds like his...

    I don't mind the ads in general, but one that was really bothersome was the Command strip ad. It kept opening, even when I didn't run my mouse over it, and after I'd close it, it would open again...

    What I find odd about Diamond's curveball is that he gets so little break on it. PITCHf/x says that his curve gets an average of no inches of vertical break (without gravity), which is atypical of...

    Hey, that's my line for trade proposals this one Twins usher always makes!

    Ex: Last year, this guy suggested the Twins acquire Matt Kemp AND Clayton Kershaw. I couldn't believe he was serious.
  20. Yes, trade him....

    Yes, trade him. http://www.twinsdaily.com/entry.php?1528-Twins-Should-Make-Willingham-Available

    Meanwhile, this lonely usher will be hanging out below the right field scoreboard, looking wistfully as Josh Willingham bounces a home run ball off one lucky person's pair of hands.
  22. A 5.63 ERA in only 5 starts at Target Field is a...

    A 5.63 ERA in only 5 starts at Target Field is a terrible reason to not sign him. No, the Twins won't sign him because he'll be too expensive.
  23. I realize my name is not Seth, but Slama has...

    I realize my name is not Seth, but Slama has basically two pitches: a fastball and a slurve. Typically you want a starter to have about 4 pitches.

    I don't mind Robby at all. I don't feel that he's exceptionally good or terrible, but he does an adequate job. Yes, some of his questions have been poor (I'll always remember him asking Bert during...
