    No, it isn't--sending him down in favor of Hermann/Fryer is far worse than a bad thing.

    So true. After 2011, some changes were made and it was projected: "we are competitive, last year was due to injuries and 'bad luck'." More changes every year with same mantra--followed by "...ya...

    Why is it avarice for a player (his agent) to use leverage to secure the most money he can--especially compared to what the owners do to: fans, cities, media broadcasters, everybody they can?

    This has been the problem all season! This is why there is/was a Bartlett, Kubel, Guerrier, Pelfrey, etc. problem. The focus was about CYA, fantasy, and short-term goals instead of long-term goals...

    And the Twins are expected to trade? for an extra 2-3 wins? So the Twins can win maybe 75--and still be irrelevant? No. As posted he's 29, and would just be in the way after this year. Take the...

    The Twins need hitting not fielding. It would be ridiculously foolish to trade someone who is deemed "part of the future" to satisfy a temporary need in CF--for a losing team. Another "replacement...

    At 5th overall, the Twins should be seeking a player who could be either a middle-of-the-line-up hitter, or a #1 pitcher. True, that guy may not exist, but taking the "safe" choice, or compromising...

    Signing a replacement level player from another franchise makes no sense--especially one in his late 20's--he isn't going to improve. The Twins aren't in need of hole-pluggers, they need bonafide...

    "What's the rush"? So few games played to ascertain if Pinto should be the #1 catcher, nor enough to ignore Suzuki's past and proclaim him the #1 catcher for the next 3-5 years. Trade? That...

    Hmm, 3rd catcher who can sorta play OF, or real OF who can also play CF? Ok since he's not on the 40-man, kind of a problem for Mastro.
