    This is a great debate. Fun to see such strong opinions on both sides.


    I agree with this, along with halfchest's tobi0040's, and TheLeviathan's comments.

    Last July/August, I was banging the...

    The Stewart ranking has to be the biggest surprise, for me. Not that he's seen an incredible drop-off this season, but I just didn't realize he'd done much to improve his prospect stock. Had I made a...

    I agree with the general sentiment of the article--that managers and especially trainers need to be receptive to their players telling them about soreness or early signs of an injury, and teams...

    When's more news on this happy hour coming? Sounds like fun!

    The question you leave me wondering is: When you bought the tickets in April, what percent chance would you have said there was at the time that you would sell the tickets?

    You're not wrong, but it sets a different tone to say, "Sure, three of our top five prospects are out right now, but Prospect #22 on the depth chart is really impressing!" These guys are showing...

    That's the great thing about shortstop prospects--they can all play the outfield in a pinch.

    Jeremy, I'm curious: If the Twins do take Nick Gordon or someone else in the first round that they can...

    Thanks for this, Cody. It actually reassures me some to be reminded just how much younger Buxton and Sano have been compared to their competition. Even with their lost time, they're still well ahead...

    I see tomorrow (Friday) night's game includes a "Twins Music Download Card" giveaway. Any idea what that is? I figure it could be really awesome or really lame, depending.

    This whole story is bizarre to me. If anyone at MLB really did think it was a good idea to remove the podcasts, surely they anticipated there would be a backlash? But given how fast MLB caved in...
  12. Colabello cowbell radio jingle

    Did anyone else catch the radio promo for the Colabello cowbells? I heard it once in the car on Friday, and it was awesome! Does anyone know of anywhere online I can listen to it again? (My searching...

    I have to assume it goes back to the lazy philosophy that walks are the pitcher's fault, and that doesn't recognize plate discipline for the valuable skill it is.

    It's nice to see the wind...

    Pepperoni, Sausage, Mushroom, Pinto, and Banana Peppers.

    One of those is my favorite Twin; the rest go on my favorite pizza.

    Images for Blogs

    Any tips on finding and using photos for blog entries?

    I know the FAQ says, "Please make sure you are not using copyrighted or licensed images." Besides using personal photos I've taken, what are...

    Is that a typo? If it's not, I have to wonder how meaningful it is--how many "Routine" play opportunities did Hicks see last year? It wouldn't take more than an unlucky misstep or two, I would think,...

    I'm actually most surprised by Mastroianni being sent down. Doesn't that make a strong case that Hicks will make the Opening Day roster and therefore be the center fielder?

    Thanks for the reply and for taking the time, biggentleben. I took a couple stats classes in college, but it's obvious I'm rusty when it comes to drilling down much.

    Let's see if I'm understanding...

    biggentleben--exactly. So if catcher framing had a correlation of 1 with Runs Allowed, it would mean your catcher's framing ability determined it completely. (If the two correlate perfectly in...

    Hold on--weak? That sounds almost unbelievably strong to me. Wouldn't that mean 30% of a team's Runs Allowed is determined by one dimension of one player?

    I don't know, but I have to think if you...

    I haven't dug in too far yet, but I can think of three potential answers:

    1) What counts as "so variable"? From 2007 to present, Joe Mauer's batting averages were:
    .293, .328, .365, .327, .287,...

    mlhouse, let me ask you this: What is the harm, then, in any monopoly or in collusion? If all the gas stations in the country get together and decide to raise the price of gas by $2 per gallon,...

    Actually, that's part of the problem--under the contract, there are maximum pay limits. For example, no team is allowed to pay their first-year minor leaguers more than $1,100/month. So the Twins or...
