    The guy Gibson has always reminded me of is Scott Erickson, which means he'll never be as great as you think he is during the good times or as horrible as you think during the bad ones. There's...

    When you're coming off a rotation in 2013 that featured five guys who could best be dubbed 4A starters, I'm not sure you can ever act "too aggressively."

    Snark or no snark, I refuse to acknowledge that the ex-Cuban dictators ever made up the left side of the Twins infield.

    IMO, the big problem with this whole debate is the overrating of Florimon's glove. Maybe he can hit hit like Gagne next year, but that's setting the bar pretty low offensively and Gagne made up for...

    One was a bad starter on a playoff team that couldn't afford holes. One was a decent bench player on a team with no expectations.

    No. Minor league closers have such a low success rate as prospects, so Rondon is a pretty big risk. You have to really believe in Castellanos' star potential to do it. You're better off getting...

    While I firmly agree that I'd trade any current Twins starter for Kevin Slowey, could we not dub Vance Worley a guy with good peripherals? And what does it say about our current system that Worley...

    Whenever a guy tops out at 97, it usually means he sits 92-94 when starting and 95 or so in relief.

    IMO, the best thing you can say about Stewart is that he was in no way, shape or form cloned...

    1a) Bryant
    1b) Gray
    3) Appel
    4) ???

    Bryant seems the safest pick. Gray has the biggest upside. Appel should be solid. Stewart is the pick that scares the living bejeezus out of me. Especially...

    As long as they stop taking college relievers with questionable deliveries in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, I'll be happy.

    I remember Nick taking me to task for saying Gomez's upside was Devo White at the time of the Santana trade, but in hindsight that's the player he's become. IMO, the biggest problem with the trade...

    I don't think there's much doubt from his minor league line that Hicks is going to strike out some this year. His minor league peripherals and numbers scream more Mike Cameron or Chris Young than...

    I don't think it necessarily depends on which pitch he's struggling to throw either. If his slider isn't working, odds are hitters will be sitting on a fastball. So to compensate, the pitcher will...

    I'd note that it's also harder for a guy who depends on his slider like Gibson to bounce back from TJ surgery than a guy who's all fastball like Pelfrey. It's not uncommon for a pitcher to come back...

    It wouldn't surprise me if Pelfrey bounced back to 2010 form this year. Granted, the 2010 version of Pelfrey wasn't very good at throwing any pitch besides a fastball, so the time it will take to get...

    IMO, it's less the number arms that scares me and more the number of players on the top ten list who haven't hit New Britain yet. There's a lot of upside in the system, but we're probably two years...
