    This could be true. The most interesting prospects, reasonably close to the majors, could be Goodrum or Harrison. Goodrum's bat isn't there yet, Harrison may not be a 3B, and his power hasn't...

    If memory serves me correctly(and it may not) Kubel went from High A to AA to AAA to the majors all in one year as a 21 year old. It doesn't happen too often but he dominated each level to get to...

    You can see from this why the Twins front office seems so closed mouthed about trade discussions and such. No player would enjoy seeing his name associated with most of these trade discussions. You...

    Thank you for posting this. It is interesting. I am not sure it actually means much, for some of the reasons already posted here and well, depth is good but a few dominant arms is maybe better. It...

    Using a pitcher in relief before turning him back into a starter, isn't a new thing. Especially back in the day of 4 man staffs. Jim Perry for the Twins spent time in relief before he became a full...

    I don't want to dump on LEN III, but really, there are only 3 officials in the Twins organization whose opinions count for much when it comes to the major league roster. That would be Gardy, Ryan...

    I don't think Vargas' size is the problem. His lack of position is a bit of a problem. The real problem maybe- is his bat quick enough? The Twins for years had a lot of guys who had power in the...

    I have seen this post in various forms all winter. You seem to be conceding that Drew may not be able to hold off even what is likely to be a fairly mediocre shortstop like Santana in a year or so,...

    As said above, this thread is well traveled territory and the responses will be pretty predictable. What I will say is this, I believe Ryan said that a major difference between him and Smith was...

    Herrmann doesn't really do a lot for me, but he is likely the best choice, right now. I doubt if you want to add Parmelee or Mastroianni, to the 40 man roster right yet. They have to earn it. Plus...

    I agree, it is too early to be overly concerned about Pinto's playing time. I also think however, that all this watching from the bench and learning from Steinbach is mostly baloney. The way he...

    Right now, I think Florimon is the best choice. Escobar isn't in his league defensively, and while I think Escobar might be a bit better offensively, I don't think it makes up the difference on...

    I agree that the pitching surplus will work itself out this spring. I also think it a bit early to draw too many conclusions about any individual pitcher. There was an article that Worley had more...

    What really makes anybody think that Pinto is not getting a "fair shake"? It is clearly in the Twins best interest to give him every chance to become the starting catcher, soon if not immediately. ...

    I don't know that the first statement is accurate. There are 3 things about pitchF/X that make that statement doubtful. First, PitchF/X is 2 dimensional while the strike zone is 3 dimentional. The...

    Certain things get repeated to the point that they are accepted as truths even when there are numerous counter examples. The Twins are often cited as promoting their prospects too slowly, but I...

    This thread is kind of funny. After damning the Twins for not getting FA pitching, even before the FA season even started, now that the Twins signed free agent pitchers, a lot of the same people are...

    The Twins have signed a number of effective relievers off of waivers or as minor league free agents. Guerrier was one and so were Fein and Burton. There have also been a number of not so effective...

    I can't really figure out what posters really want, for the team to be the best possible this year, even marginally so. Or rather, whether it is more important to find out about the pieces we...

    I don't get the opposition to signing Guerrier at all. He isn't that far removed from being an effective short reliever. At 35, he isn't really all that old for a relief pitcher. It is a minor...

    I have been a little leery of Garza for 3 reasons. A lot of his perceived value is fueled by strikeouts and stats like FIP which are heavily strikeout dependent. Strikeouts are fine, but they...

    I always liked Revere and figured that at some point in his career he could compete for a batting title. That still doesn't make him anything resembling a great player, but I think he is a clear...

    I am very excited for what Arcia can become. I think that with all the talk about the phenoms Buxton and Sano we the fans, sort of overlook Arcia. He is still quite young, was promoted quite...
