    WHOA! Who are these impact players--and do the Twins have an excess of them to trade?

    Let me see if I understand you correctly--the Twins should one of the few tradeable chips to obtain another 4th OF, one whose value is only for this wretched season? May I suggest spending some cash...

    I wish I knew more about Nolasco's contract. If he had proclaimed that he's "injury free" and completely "ready to pitch"--and if he wasn't--could his contract be voided? IDK major...

    The Twins need a field manager on the same page as the entire front office (who also need to be on the same page!). Gardenhire is wont to remind everyone about the past success of the team (and by...

    Many posters have alluded to the "shared management philosophy" used by the Twins--yet apparently think this is the best way to operate--I don't! I assume that long term return on invested capital...

    Sano was "converted" to 3B and wasn't "buttah" there. Add the recent struggles of other "can't miss" Twins' rookies and engraving Sano into the line at 3B is too much. In fact, Sano might be the...

    I fear a continuation of the "half-in, half-out" management philosophy. This inevitably leads to a mediocre season and the FO saying "all fixed", just allow the young players to mature (while...

    Plouffe is not an outfielder. Leave him at 3B--Sano isn't a guaranteed success there! Santana doesn't belong in CF--there has been enough evidence of him there. The Twins should either just hand...

    No, he said if the Twins match [the A's 1st half winning per centage] then (by inference) they would have as good of a team as the A's. My take, Winston's toungue is pushing his cheek out.

    Waiting the 14 games to see what happened makes a lot of sense. Best case scenarios (because lesser cases isn't worth discussing) is 9-10 wins. But then what? Anybody worthy of being classified as...

    I suspect that a significant part of "the roster problem" is caused by too many pitchers on the roster. The desire to have "lots of arms" for both starters and relievers is a big constraint. To be...
