    The verdict is in

    Neither can turn on a fastball. Hard in soft away - easy out. Yes, the verdict is in on these two.

    Ty Cobb was interviewed after his playing days were over.
    - Mr. Cobb - if you were playing today what would you hit?
    - Two-seventy.
    - Really? Only two-seventy? (In disbelief.) How come?
    - Well...

    Colabello has a long swing. He's going to K relentlessly against MLB pitching. My guess is he's feasted on "work on it here" off-speed stuff offered up at AAA. TBD, but he didn't show much bat-speed...

    If you're buying stock go long on Hicks and Arcia, hold on Dozier and Plouffe, and sell on Parmelee. Arcia is a player. Hicks will figure out how to make contact w the off speed stuff. Parmelee's...

    Perk for a top short prospect is a no-brainer.

    Closers are plentiful and an unneeded luxury for a 90 loss squad. Get me a premier shortstop and we're in business. Heck, there's another Zoilo in the league now, it's long past due the Twins should...
  6. Carroll holding back a "prospect" ?

    If the reason the Twins aren't bringing a legit player to the majors is Jamie Carroll, we are all truly doomed. As fans of the Twins, that is.

    Hicks is playing too deep. Somewhere in the deep lizard-brain of the Twins playing deep in CF was encoded in the genes of every middle outfielder to account for cutting off the ball scootching thru...

    Willingham's value is actually increasing as the cost of taking him on declines so long as his abilities don't drop off the table. My take on it is he's in a bad stretch and hasn't gone south, he's...

    Here's the problem - and if we can get the problem statement correct we have 90% of the solution worked out - so here it is: Strikeouts can be context critical. There are innings and situations where...

    It's too early to state the case is definitive but I can't help thinking of Billy Beane's career as a player every time Hicks comes to the plate. Top draft pick, great athlete, good enough at every...

    I agree with Steve Lein. If Miguel Cabrera can play 3B and Prince Fielder can play 1B on a pennant winning squad, the key to defense is for sure NOT your cornermen. Let Sano grow into an adequate...

    What is hard to believe is that the Twins got more out of the Pierzynski trade with the Giants than they did from sending Johan to the Mets. Compare and contrast Terry Ryan and Billy Smith. No cuss...

    My hope for this is that Morneau pulls it together and Parmelee hits great and proves he's a first baseman, and the Twins trade Parmelee for another strong young arm and re-sign Justin to another...

    If someone can pitch, and I mean really pitch, it's hard to see how the Twins are going to keep him off the major leage 25. So far this kid, and 23 is plenty old enough to be in the major leagues and...

    Assuming the Cube's assessments are close to accurate, how is Hicks going to out-walk Beltran Patience of 94 when Hicks is a 71?

    He does have the advantage of having a double consonant in his name - for some reason the Twins have always had good luck with guys with double consonants. Killebrew, Allison, Rollins, Versalles,...

    At some point the Dodgers and the Phillies and oh yes even the woebegone Cubbies and the suddenly sinking Yankees and such are going to have to wonder why it is that they have to spend 2 or even 3!...

    Middle infield and starting pitching is all they have to fix. Sounds so simple, and yet.. . .

    Under Gardenhire the Twins almost never have a viable ROY candidate. Coincidence? I don't think so. Moreover, the idea that a rookie! and a starting pitcher!! might be given that opportunity is...

    What are the splits on Casilla? Looks to me like he was one of those guys who hit okay right-handed but was real fast so they said, you know you ought to try switch hitting. He's never looked good...

    First post on this subject since the game. In the way of awards, Nishi deserves something like Worst Performance Ever by a Second Baseman on a Winning Team in an Absolute Blowout. Two errors, and...

    Twins re-sign Liriano. Pair him with Diamond for a solid two-fifths of a rotation.

    Going along they hope one guy trying out this year has the major league talent and gets the seasoning needed to...

    Trade from strength. OF is the position of strength in the organization. If a starting pitcher or a few arms that can bring heat are offered in return it's a deal that has to be made.

    Last year it felt as if 2 or 3 times a game Ben was dribbling it back to the mound. This year he has a game or 2 like that and then BAM! he's getting 3 or 4 hits for a few games and all over the...

    Torii Hunter? Are people serious? The Twins have 5 or 6 highly regarded minor league prospects who can play right field, or CF and keep Revere in RF where his range overcomes his arm 3 or 4 plays to...
