    This guy should be on the major league roster in 2016 at the latest. He doesn't start because he doesn't have a 3rd pitch at all. But he might have been the top relief pitcher in this draft. High...

    I always wonder where the constant defense of the Twins slow approach on minor leagers comes from. I don't think any successful team would look at the Twins and their history and say "This is the way...

    As long as the Twins starting shortstop is batting .060, I'm even willing to see the cinder block handed Nunez as a viable alternative. They are about a week away from letting the pitchers hit and...

    I don't think anyone ever said he wasn't a solid hitter with an elite swing. For me it's only about the money to the extent of what you get for the money.

    Mauer only is truly elite at one thing,...
  5. The best part of this deal was being at the game,...

    The best part of this deal was being at the game, having the trade announced, and Florimon getting a base hit 30 seconds later.
  6. The dangers of small sample sizes: Suzuki,...

    The dangers of small sample sizes:

    Suzuki, Hicks, Plouffe, and Kubel have looked very solid at the plate

    Mauer, Dozier, Willingham, and Florimon have looked horrendous.

    I don't think anyone...

    For $25 million a year you should be able to hit CHRIS EFFIN SALE occasionally.

    That said, Mauer will be hitting .300 eventually. It sort of always evens out for him.

    Can we put a fork in this comical Dozier as a leadoff guy thing? Just put Hicks back up top of the order.

    There is nothing that epitomizes Mauer better than him coming up late in the game and...

    I'm not sure "being a nice guy" precludes someone from pointing out Ramos has had an ACL injury, hamstring injury, and hamate bone injury (in addition to being kidnapped) in the course of 2+ seasons....

    I think Hicks is definitely a key player to watch. I think if he can get off to a decent start he should solidify himself as our best outfielder. Pinto and Arcia are in the same boat. The young guys...

    "The Twins pitchers’ early impressions of Suzuki’s style have been positive. Staff has mentioned how they like how Suzuki has taken control in spring games, been vocal on his trips to the mound and...

    Agreed that anything COULD happen but comparing this mess to 1991 is crazy.

    The 1991 team had Morris, Erickson, Hrbek, Puckett, Mack (one of the most underrated players in Twins history), Chili...

    I think that is why some people are upset. There is not any measure by which Bartlett is better than Presley. Offensively Presley is statistically superior. Defensively Presley IS an outfielder and...

    I like Hicks.

    He has less pressure on him because the only other player that the team is willing to put in the outfield is Jason Bartlett and I would only call him an "outfielder" if you made air...

    Jason Bartlett has played exactly 1 inning in his 9 year career at a position other than shortstop (2B in 2004), batted .078 in spring training, wasn't in the majors basically for the last 2 years,...

    Nailed It

    I am paying thousands of dollars buying tickets for myself and some of my staff. Those tickets ALWAYS go up in price even when the organization is terrible. Target Field is a great place to go watch...

    I find it interesting how much more flawed Ben Revere's game gets when there is a need to formulate a rationalization for this front office's ineptitude.

    A couple things to keep in mind:

    I'm almost convinced the Twins planted Bartlett at ST to overshadow how bad Kubel is at this point. Bartlett has been an embarassment and the fact the FO is still mentioning him boarders on gross...

    Honestly I think the TEAM is improved because the pitching staff is actually major league worthy. Maybe not excellent but Hughes, Nolasco, Correia, and Pelfrey are professional arms. This isn't the...

    I'd cut Bartlett, Kubel, Diamond, and Rohlfing. None figure into the teams future plans and serve zero purpose on the major league roster.

    Actually we should know Diamond will be as useless as a reliever as he is as a starter. Time to cut bait.

    Gibson as #5 and Deduno in the pen sounds like the right approach.

    Worley and Diamond have had an entire year and spring to get their acts together and have failed to solidify their places. Its...

    Hopefully Diamond follows quickly behind Worley. Both are AAA pitchers and if they clear waivers would be assets to call up in a pinch if needed. If they are claimed its good to know they are...
