  1. Roy Smalley made a very interesting comment about...

    Roy Smalley made a very interesting comment about hitting in the clutch with a guy on 3rd and less than two outs. He said you should time your swing for a fastball over the plate or the outside...
  2. 9 ERA for Berrios. What is he still doing in AA?...

    9 ERA for Berrios. What is he still doing in AA? Ok, just kidding but after giving up 4 homers in 100 innings he gave up 2 in 5 innings. Small sample so who cares but I read that he throws...
  3. I have no problem with the pace of putting him...

    I have no problem with the pace of putting him back in play but still laugh a little at this kind of stuff. He went from 0-2 innings to 7 innings and probably play 9 his next time out. I assume he...
  4. "I saw Hicks being sent down as what was best for...

    "I saw Hicks being sent down as what was best for Hicks -- not necessarily what was best for the team." Well put. As I have pointed out before Hicks has an OBP better than Revere or Span this year...
  5. 9-1 with a 1.92 ERA deserves a shot so I disagree...

    9-1 with a 1.92 ERA deserves a shot so I disagree with the travesty part, rebuild or not. Strikeouts are not indicative of dominance, but of raw stuff. Liam Henckriks had better stats with much...
  6. May sound silly but I always thought the home run...

    May sound silly but I always thought the home run derby and the all star game was part of the reason for Morneau's decline in 2008 especially given the fact that he played 163 games that year. He...

    I don't think things are that bleak unless you really thought the Twins would contend this year. Bleak was the 2nd half of 2011 when guys were dropping like flies and we were replacing them with...

    I think mostly we have learned that the Twins shouldn't sign 4-4.5ERA National Leaguers. I always considered them to be stopgap anyway. Saying neither May nor Meyer are major league ready is just...

    Let him dominate AA first. Reminds me of the Steve Martin bit. "You can make a million dollars and not pay taxes. Ok, first, make a million dollars....."
  10. "The Twins had fantastic pivot man in Bobby...

    "The Twins had fantastic pivot man in Bobby Randall as Carew’s first replacement at second, but that .257 career average wasn’t quite Carew’s .334 in 12 years in Minnesota, now was it?" But the...
  11. I think the same thing but then look it up on...

    I think the same thing but then look it up on baseball reference and see he is hitting .226 for New Britain. Doesn't seem to jive.

    "His ceiling is that of someone who could...

    "His ceiling is that of someone who could potentially be a top-of-the-rotation starter but saddling anyone at 16 with that label is irresponsible." That kind of sentence makes me chuckle. ...
  13. Not arguing too much with the premise but if...

    Not arguing too much with the premise but if Mauer isn't the best player who is? Suzuki and Dozier have been better but I am guessing by season end it will be Mauer. Even if he is top 60 that...
  14. While we were scoring a lot of runs with Mauer...

    While we were scoring a lot of runs with Mauer slumping I feared the day that Mauer started hitting and everyone else slumped. Its a team game and Mauer hitting well makes up for one or two guys...
  15. As much as I want to see May pitch I also think...

    As much as I want to see May pitch I also think Pino deserved more of a shot. 1-1 with one quality start in the bigs after 9-1 in the minors. Yes, he may be this year's Albers or Walters or...
  16. I've said it before but Arcia's slump reminds me...

    I've said it before but Arcia's slump reminds me of a couple of Cuddyer's. He would be so anxious to hit the pitchers could often get him out without throwing a single strike. The more aggressive...
  17. "Delmon Young and Carlos Gomez in particular....

    "Delmon Young and Carlos Gomez in particular. Gomez, especially, I don’t think would have become the player he is if he had stayed in Minnesota," Don't think I buy it. Young used all fields in 2010...
  18. A lot of clamoring for May to join the Twins...

    A lot of clamoring for May to join the Twins rotation but he doesn't make the Futures game. What's up with that?
  19. ."guys like Trevor May have thrown out their arms...

    ."guys like Trevor May have thrown out their arms in the minors--he had 677 iniings in the minors before this year started.
    If you are good get brought up and find out. . Viola 156 minor league...
  20. "I think with Harper, the Nats know he will leave...

    "I think with Harper, the Nats know he will leave in free agency shortly so they wanted to get him up and get him with the big club as long as they could." Does this come into play? Does he get...
  21. "Unfortunately, it looks like the offense is...

    "Unfortunately, it looks like the offense is going to be trouble going forward until Buxton and Gordon get here, which is two or three years away realistically." I'm thinking more Rosario and...

    Agree to disagree. Powerful guys that square up the ball more often hit more homers but anyone that squares it up more often gets more hits. Mauer is a great case. I never expected him to hit...
  23. Hicks at the time of demotion had a better OBP...

    Hicks at the time of demotion had a better OBP than Revere or Span. These two were leadoff hitters whose sole responsibility was getting on base. Hicks did a better job of that from the 9 hole...

    If not for options I could see a revolving door for him and Colabello. They gain confidence in AAA and ride it for a while in the bigs. There is the benefit of sending him down. I am in the...

    I was never one of those with East Coast envy. I would rather beat the White Sox than the Yankees so last weekend was good for me.
