  1. Long Relief -- Duensing vs. Walters/Diamond

    So I'm obviously not a major league manager -- at least I don't think I've missed any of Terry Ryan's calls to see if I'm available to replace Gardy -- but if you've got a long reliever (Duensing)...

    If I'm Terry Ryan, this is the scenario that I hope plays out: Tell Morneau that you're trading him for prospects (or a middle infielder), but you hope he'll consider signing with the Twins at the...

    The Astros had the worst record last year, but switched from NL to AL. So do they have preference since they are in the AL now? Or does their bad record last year in the NL mean Borbon has to clear...

    Today's article in the Strib more accurately, I think, sums up what TR is going for:
    "The Twins, said Terry Ryan, "need competition. We need numbers and we need choices.""

    So if he can't get...

    My guess is that Revere would go in a package. As the sole piece in a trade, he wouldn't bring much value back. Revere & Morneau for a #1 or #2 starting pitcher? Revere & Gray for a back-end...
  9. Twins Mgmt Convincing Themselves Fallback Plan Will Work?

    So admittedly, I'm as itchy as everyone else on these forums waiting to see the Twins do something about their starting rotation. Obviously, nothing has happened. We hear continuously that they "are...

    In addition to Roenicke, they've claimed weak-hitting infielder Thomas Field, also from the Rockies:

    The Twins claimed reliever Josh Roenicke and infielder Thomas Field off of waivers from the...
  11. Twins went after Ervin Santana, looking at Haren

    According to Darren "Doogie" Wolfson (sports guy for 5 Eyewitness News) in his "The Scoops" article today on 1500ESPN.com, the Twins were in on Ervin Santana up until the last minute.

    From the...

    If they bring up Brunansky or Gene Glynn (AAA Manager), or bring back Molitor full-time as a bench coach, my guess would be that this new person would be viewed as the eventual replacement for...

    What happened to Sean Burroughs? I thought he was the veteran/backup 3B option. Did the Twins give up on him completely?
  14. So IOW, you want Nick Punto 2.0?

    Remember that if Carroll gets 401 PA's next season he has a PLAYER option for 2014 when he will be 40 years old. Would you still rather have Carroll?[/QUOTE]

    Yes. If I'm the Twins I'm not thinking...

    How come nobody ever advocates that the Twins re-sign Liriano at the end of the season, assuming that the White Sox don't sign him to an extension? Unless Frankie goes lights out (and he hasn't so...
