    No one is saying that you cannot question the team's decisions. It's one thing to say "I don't get why they kept the Jasons, it doesn't make sense" (which on that sentiment you and I are in...

    Out of curiosity, how would we know he wasn't offered a relief roll in AAA, and asked if he could be traded somewhere he could try to continue starting instead? And the front office agreed it was for...

    So in your mind there is no room for blame on the player himself. Failure equates to a problem with the coaches or FO? You seem predisposed to give a free pass to the guy actually throwing the ball.

    RBI and Runs are far more overrated. Batting average is a repeatable skill and helps tell you how often a player made an out. There is value in that, though in a vacuum batting average is seriously...

    Drew hasn't his above .253 since 2010. If he was anything but a shortstop, nobody would be petitioning so vociferously to sign him.

    I still think Florimon's defense will offset any improvements...

    I'm not sold on Gregorius, either. I don't even know if I'd trade him for Pinto.

    But Florimon is a bad starter. A very, very bad starter. The guy makes an out over 70% of the time he comes to the...

    Tulowitski is a pipe dream. Guess who will be looking for a SS next year? Hint: they can afford anybody.

    The difference between baseball and other sports is draft lead time, which is why I believe in taking the BPA every time.

    If you take the BPA, he's probably not going to hit the MLB roster for...

    He's seen very limited time at SS, mostly 2009-2011. Fewer than 100 games, and not a great fielder. Better at CF and 2B. I'd keep both him and Escobar.

    Again, Dozier showed an ability to hit in the minors. Florimon has never shown a similar ability at any level over a full season.

    As I have said, I think he is an elite defender--the best the Twins have had since Gagne. But the Twins offense could use a boost, so, if they have a chance to upgrade offensively at the position...

    Recalling Greg Gagne, Mark Belanger, Ed Brinkman, Leo Cardenas, and Luis Aparicio makes me think good shortstops don't need to be high average hitters.
