    I'm honestly torn on this one. On the one hand I like that it is only a one year deal for a guy that could be borderline great and that it means the FO is serious about putting a good team together...

    5. ALCS party

    Call me a homer but I think we should have more on this list. Rosario should be on this list but with the PED suspension I could understand if he was blackballed. Wonder where/if Hicks or Arcia would...

    Were the "glory years" a fraud?

    I've been thinking a lot about the years 2002-2010 when the Twins were one of the best teams in baseball and trying to figure out what made them so much better than the current team.

    In the...

    Wasn't Pavano a waiver claim? Couldn't tell you his WAR for the life of me, but he had a couple solid seasons.

    I'm not totally convinced Diamond's struggles this year didn't have something to do with his surgery or him not being fully recovered yet. In 2012 he had great control and a good curveball plus other...

    Great write up! I'm in the same boat as you Seth. Late to the party but furiously trying to catch up on Netflix and have all of this season eating up space on my DVR. Unfortunately I recently found...

    Is it wrong to root for the Twins to lose?

    We all know this season is a lost cause. All we have to keep our spirits up is the promise of the future with our loaded farm system. Obviously I want to see guys like Arcia and others that we expect...

    I'm not a big sabermetrics guy but there should be a stat that measures productivity in RBI type situations. Obviously there is BA with RiSP, but is there something more comprehensive?

    Just wondering if the cash could be international signing pool money. Even if it was something like $5,000 that would be more valuable than some guy that probably never see Rochester.

    In hindsight we actually did okay with the deals we made or didn't make.

    I still don't like the Ramos/Capps deal, but if he can't stay on the field he isn't helping anyone.

    The comp picks and...

    I hope the FO dangles Perkins but only at a king's ransom. Given his age, ability, and great contract there is no reason he shouldn't be part of the rebuilding process and still there when it is...

    I'm not an expert on advanced metrics, but I'm trying to start a new stat called Total Batting Productivity. It is calculated similar to slugging in that it assigns 1 point for a single, 2 for a...

    Amaurys Minier is obviously a name to remember, but how the heck do pronounce it?

    Pressly to the starting rotation?

    When the Twins selected Ryan Pressly in the Rule 5 draft they dis so because they thought he had starter potential. So far he has earned his roster spot and more than proven he is not just taking up...

    I've suspected all along Morneau along with Willingham were the most likely trade chip this season given his age, contract situation, and the fact that there is a ready made replacement waiting in...

    Great news that the big fish has been landed! Guess $4,544,400 is a lot more than SEC football programs are paying these days.

    Doubt Gibson will get the call. On the broadcast yesterday they said that they will call Gibson up when they are 100% sure he is fully back and that once he is in the big leagues he will stay in the...

    Isn't Appel a senior this year? If Bor******* can't threaten to make him sit out again what leverage does he have? What's he going to do? Play in the Northern League until someone gives him the money...

    I have no problem waiting a few months to see them in the bigs and not just for the reasons listed above. 2013 is all but designated as a lost cause and we will probably be trading some of our marqee...

    As far as I can tell there is only one thing not to like about this guy- hs agent Scott Boras.

    Bummer about losing Gutierrez. Didn't see Delois Guierra (spl?) on the list. Does that mean the crown jewel is safe and they no longer need to waste a roster spot for him? I thought there was some...

    I don't know what to think going forward. Last year it was easy to write off the terrible season as an abiration caused by the ungodly amount of key injuries. This season it is harder to be...

    Great news about Buxton. For all the problems this franchise has, "too many awesome OF prospects" is one ones I'm okay with.

    The real question though is "Why isn't J.O. Berrios on either of those...

    I just want to see anything that can give me hope for 2013.

    Also, I didn't see Revolution but was wanting to. Looked like one of the few new shows with promise.
