The #1 THOUGHT in all this trade talk. Someone HAS to want any of the players the Twins have. And when we are dealing with potential free agents, the Twins have three choices: Keep this season and...
Well, if the Twins depart with Willingham, Morales, Correia, Suzucki, possibly Duensing, Swarzak, Burton, Guerrier. Maybe Florimon is cut loose. Maybe Fryer is let go, too. There's easily 8 40-man...
This is also going out on a limb, but come August with the hopes that Nolasco has pitched a few good games, run him out on the waiver wire and let him go if anyone bites, then sit back and after...
I forgot about Vargas. If Willingham and Morales goes, he is up. I don't see the team adding any REAL future prospects to the 40-ma Just people ike Rohlfing or Beresfrd getting a cup of coffee. Maybe...

No matter how highly we think of May or Meyer, they will possibly take some lumps in their major league debut. Might as well get it done and over with. We can patch in Johnson and Logan. Heck, why...
Of course, the Twins tried to send him down by removing him from the 40-man roster, expecting no one else to grab him. So glad for him to make the All-Star team. Not that it will be a Minnesota...
I don't see that as being a problem. Players in their final contract year or on a one-year contract expect to be traded and like being in a pennant race. They are playing for the next contract. If...

I don't know what to make of Arcia. More seasoning> Play Santana in center. Let Escobar handle short (he has batted dismal since he moved to third, what gives). I like the idea of Plouffe becoming...
In some ways, no brainer. You play Polancho AHEAD of Florimon for two days. See what he does. On Monday, Plouffe and Nunez come back (I would only activate one, pending the outcome of Pino's pitching...
It's such a tough call. The starters HAVE to improve from season's beginning. But what is causing the lapse in hitting. I say lineup construction overall. Should Dozier be batting second, or should...

The Twins sell pretty much no matter what.
Willingham is not worth the extension, unless it is a SWEETHEART deal. Yes, it is nice to have an older DH who can play another position. But if the...
The 40-man roster is not a question. You can put Pelfrey on the 60-man. You can pas both Deduno and Florimon thru waivers and they should clear. In the wings you have Parmelee who could go thru...
Well, if they could eliminate offensive weaknesses and field the team they want, and I also often question Gardy's lineup construction.
Santana has fallen nicely into the leadoff position for...
Deduno designated Pino Up
If Plouffe is out 30-days, let's designate Florimon and give a shot to Debinson Romero. Even if we lose Pedro, we still have Beresford and Bernier down there.

Okay, let's get creative/ Deduno would easily pass thru waivers and the twins could probably retain him, making a 40-man spot available. Florimon has no business being up here. It should be time to...
Duensing has value right now. I would trade him for a decent chip. Wish could say the same for Swarzak, who had his best value ever this offseason. Burton just needs to be sent away. Guerrier will be...
Right now, it doesn't matter where he plays. A team has to play a pro-rated amount of his contract only if he makes the majors. If he wants to play, Rochester would be just as good as the Long Island...
I was amazed at how far Coomer had come, although I'm not sure how he'd work out on a day-to-day basis. Analysis gets set in their ways. Kelly and someone else alternating would be best. Laudner is...

Even though he is second in homers, if Suzuki can play near fulltime Pinto might be best getting regular time behind the plate (as well as working with future Twins starters May, Mere, Darnell et al)...

We are having discussions along this line in the Twin Cities actor community...this article shares some similar concerns that ball players may have -...

Remember that most of these guys range in age from 17 to 22. This is their first real job. And if you put it into the context that they have spend their days playing high school and college ball and...

Not ALL draft picks walk around with a hundred grand check in their pocket. But those that sign for more than $20 grand can probably endure a couple of years in minor league hell.
Also, out of the...
My biggest issue since they left WCCO is the general baseball talk, both pre and post game, not to mention other things during the day. WCCO seemed to go above and beyond the needs of baseball to...

You are so correct. Even as distant backups. No one in the outfield. No one in the infield (even Florimon). They should be having Sano, Rosario right about now. Buxton should've torn up New Brit and...
