    Just saying...

    I think Ponder has done a good job of avoiding mistakes, making better decisions, and carrying out the game plan, but he has been relatively lucky on defenders missing gift...

    Terry's at least getting a phone call from Miami about Mark Buehrle, right? Miami only paid him $6m of the $58m due to him this year. So therefore he's got a 3 year, $52m deal ahead of him which I'm...

    "Assuming his age is legit...."

    I hope this is the last time I ever read this, but I know we'll hear it throughout his career. It's very convincing in Pelotero that he did about 5 times what's...
  4. This is so obviously the truth. Last year and in...

    This is so obviously the truth. Last year and in 2010 they didn't have players like this. Even Cuddyer wasn't dead pull as much as he was a power alley guy. It helps to have a freak of nature like...

    Which doesn't have much to do with television markets.

    I was looking at this.

    Do they? When NBC Sports and Comcast merged, was it out of the question for them to make a play for the Twins? It appeared that FSN had the monopoly, but that wasn't going to last for long. Kudos to...

    The only thing I disagreed with Mackey on this article was the TV deal. The Rangers are somehow getting $80 million from their TV deal in a very comparably-sized market. FSNorth somehow got the...

    The key difference is a point made in Michael Lewis' article about Shane Battier and the Houston Rockets front office from 2009.

    This is nice as a measure of the past, but holds next to no significance for the future. As you said, his targets and protection have improved. This has nothing to do with Ponder's performance from a...

    This post needed to happen a long time ago. Thanks for taking the time. I might also throw in the excessive thread starting could probably use some discretion on everyone's part. We should have...

    Since we all know his slugging pct. is going to closely mirror his batting average, we should probably stop using OPS as a detractor. I'm only really interested in how well he's making contact and...
  13. If I'm another team looking for a center fielder,...

    If I'm another team looking for a center fielder, I'm calling on Revere. Range, swiping ability, serf-salary, service time, no walks but no strikeouts either.

    Yes, he's give or take the second...

    I lived in Chicago most of my life as a displaced Twins fan. The White Sox spent the 00's getting big name free agent signings every year, typically having a great team on paper that hit tons of home...

    Based on those pictures, you can also see that Parmelee has his hands higher too.
  16. No one is saying there isn't doubt because...

    No one is saying there isn't doubt because ultimately it's a bet on the future which can't be predicted. But the main thing is that he was coming from a 'Twins have to draft for need' angle which is...

    mlhouse, this isn't the NFL. There's a lot you can criticize this organization for right now, but you're really up the wrong tree.

    I'm assuming I'm probably the only person here who is hoping for Zunnino. I know Buxton and Correa have higher ceilings, but I'd prefer the most developed position player.
  19. You can get good pitchers elsewhere in the Top 72...

    You can get good pitchers elsewhere in the Top 72 where the Twins have 5 picks. The #2 needs to be as close to a sure thing as possible. If the best player was a pitcher by a mile by the time June...
  20. Over Zunino? I just want the best player...

    Over Zunino? I just want the best player available. If this really is a deep draft, I would rather take a sure thing position player up top and use 3 of the next 4 picks on pitching. Pitching is just...
  21. Unless there's something missing in my math, the...

    Unless there's something missing in my math, the Tigers appear to me to have no business having a $132 million payroll. I know Ilitch's bank accounts are probably bigger than everyone else in...

    I still don't see why you would do that. You would do that to increase your chances of finding at least 1 certified stud. Kalil is about as close to a sure thing as you can reasonably expect given...

    Oh hello Joe Nathan's 95 MPH Fastball. It's funny meeting like this after all this time.

    That was probably because the bases were just loaded. That way you get Ozzy's "ALL ABOAAAARD!!!!" call before the riff kicks in.
