I don't get the Burton hate, he was damn good in 2012 and in 2013 his numbers we just fine and provided plenty of value (71 Appearances, 8.3 k/9, and the same WAR he did in 2012)
Since May or so...

Hughes, Gibson and Correia (!!!!) have all been pitching pretty darn well lately, in Hughes and Gibsons cases they quickly look to be legit top of the rotation type studs for the near future.

You want to trade the best pitcher the Twins have had in years for salary relief? Pelfreys contract is not going to hamstring them at all
Last 8 starts:
I find it interesting that a starter in AAA is "struggling" when they pitch to a line of "three runs on five hits and three walks in 5.2 innings" (Johnson - one out away from what is touted as a...

As of this morning, Aaron Hicks had a .344 OBP. Span's last seasons with the Twins were .331, .328 and .342.
So, did Span "hit" enough his last 3 seasons with the Twins?

WHY IS EVERYONE HATING ON AARON HICKS!?!
He's getting on base at a good clip. Let him continue to figure out this hitting thing at the MLB level, getting on base 34% of the time is not the mark of...
Posters here are wound too tight. It's just baseball. Watch the game, enjoy,--it isn't life or death.
Besides,Ruesse's tweet is totally unrealistic... everyone knows he would have been "day to day" for a week or three before heading to the DL.
I want Ted Williams to be the next head of the Twins.
Agree with the first sentence, but the changes you are proposing (albeit totally valid) are not serious enough.
Want serious changes after this mess of the last 3.25 seasons? Here:

He got back on Saturday already. He's definitely a team guy and loves being around the guys...
I like "They all looked fine." Now that's some analysis that you can't just get anywhere! :)

Hoping to not be too frontal here but I do not find anything LEN3 writes to be informative. There is clearly more info and insight at Twins Daily than anything he writes - essentially the article is...

I find this statement from today's Strib article baffling:
"Every factor that the Twins and Mauer’s representatives could think of was discussed, projected and appraised before an agreement was...

I do not even know if wins-losses are the biggest thing this year..

Robert Putnam's book "Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community" is an interesting study in social capital, defined as a form of social networks: "whereas...
Hicks is a fantastic physical specimen, highly intelligent, works his butt off, arm like a rocket, fast as heck, courageous to a fault in center field.
I feel pretty good about his prospects for...
Here is the issue for me. Instead of having Yoon at 2/10, Correa at 2/10, and Pelfrey at 2/12, why not have one good pitcher at $16M a year?
Bartolo Colon signed a 2/20 deal. Garza would be less...
Given the recent Hall of Fame vote I thought this video was topical:
Hopefully it is Pelfrey that gets DFA'ed...

Bear with me, this is a bit long…..
Given that 10 runs equals a win, and given actual results last year, here is how I think the Twins can get close to the playoffs in 2014.
This team has sucked the last 3 years, so why are so many posters concerned about the 40 man roster and P without options possibly losing their spot in the rotation?
The team that has been trotted...
