    I thought that was really funny. What kind of dumb ass member of a front office jumps into a discussion board?

    Jim Hoey dislikes this comment, is not buying Dave a steak dinner, and is beginning to tear up a bit.

    This has to be a fake application - I don't see the requirements:



    Battling tail off.
    Develop the software the right way.
    Have a last name where you can add an "ie" at the end.

    Here's the sad part...the three catchers jokes are all well and good and deserved....but Chris Hermann may be the only logical choice to call up. We're that shallow offensively.

    And, to me,...

    Clearly the best scenario now would be if May or Meyer come up in the second half and put no doubt in the front office's mind that they will be a member of this rotation come 2015. If both of them...

    So, we fired Bill Smith and hired his old boss. That's not working out, so we're going to fire him and hire his old boss? McPhail will always have '87 and '91, but he had a lot of issues since he...

    I'm all for selling, but you don't sell guys who are a part of the future or you will always be selling. Dozier wouldn't be available.

    Mitch Garver in the 3 year range might fit the bill. More advanced than both Pinto and Ramos were at that level, IMO. ...

    Yeah, I could kind of see Perkins, but that ship sailed last year. With what's coming up through the minors, there's no way Dozier, Santana, and Parmelee (not that he'd net much right now) shoudl be...

    In my Mind's eye - I am cool as a cucumber with Escobar, Santana and Nunez at SS. I believe Nunez is the better batsman, Escobar is the better fielder, and Santana is the better athlete and X-factor...

    Escobar at short, Santana in center, Nunez as utility. Get Fuld out of there except as a true relief 4th or 5th OF. Escobar won the job and should stay there for the season so we can evaluate his...

    Not going to go so far as to say it's your imagination, but in 2013 the Twins were among the half dozen or so most healthy teams in MLB in terms of player days lost to the DL. And in 2010-12, they...

    He looked pretty darn raw in the majors defensively, I think he showed some real nice flashes overall for sure, but I think the Twins know what they are doing with him and he will be promoted soon...

    The obvious move to me is to cut a bullpen guy.

    [QUOTE=Jeremy Nygaard;249625]I think before the weekend it looked like an easy choice to send Florimon and Polanco down when Nunez and Plouffe were ready to return.

    But now that it's Monday and...

    If they would just DFA Floriman, and add another MI to the 40 man, they'd have the ability to send that player up and down.....I'd think. Right now, they seem paralyzed with fear of losing one of the...

    I agree, it is a huge issue to fill a bad team with old, bad players, out of options. It isn't depth if you are afraid to use it.

    Random outbursts: Middle infield depth? 19 pitchers on the 40-man roster hugely impacts "depth issues" for the position-players. Assembling a 40-man roster laden with "veterans" in the minor...

    I don't think it says all that much about the organization's middle infield depth. Depth isn't the problem there.

    Beresford, Farris and Bernier all would be perfectly capable short term middle...

    Who said Polanco stays to play SS?

    According to a fly on the wall, this is happening in Minneapolis right now:

    All: No, he's never played center.
    Gardy. Ok,...

    Every year guys go on the "phantom" DL. I think it's important to both the Twins and May that he pitches in the Futures Game. Pino or Deduno will make those starts - and Pino deserved the promotion....

    Plouffe will be back on Monday. At that point Polanco will almost certainly be moved back down. I literally see no logic in having him get only 3-5 ABs and than saying "see you in 3 years." I truly...

    He is what he is. The problem here is not Florimon. The problems are:

    - Ryan and Antony who kept him on the 40-man roster and promoted him to the majors.
