Jeter, Utley, McGwire, Tony Gwynn.

You really don't get this do you? You understand that being outscored by your opponents is bad, being outscored by your opponents over 140 games is very bad. If you are somehow winning or contending...

That makes literally no sense.[/QUOTE]
Then you're literally a moron.
What the hell is going on here. I don't care if the O's win the World Series or history repeating it'self. This is a...
I'll take Florimon's defense or Dozier's whatever the hell he offers. I don't think he's ever gonna hit like he showed in the minors and I don't think his defense will ever carry him enough.
09-12-2012, 01:59 PM
So you're saying that basically every team will
No, not at all.
There's a certain amount of luck that goes into every sport, a fluke play winning a big game etc. Being outscored by...

What in the hell are you talking about?
Bringing up a few random seasons from the past have no bearing on what's gonna happen in 2013. We don't know what the rosters will look like, the strength...
09-12-2012, 12:33 PM
Neither of us know what's gonna happen with either teams roster. Maybe Mike Ilitch loses his mind again and signs everyone, who knows what to expect outta the Sox and Kenny WIlliams.
The point is...

I've wanted him gone for years...good a time as any to take him out back and Old Yeller the SOB.
09-12-2012, 12:17 PM
Well they've done it multiple times before so, basically, you're wrong.
In 2009, the Twins won the AL Central with a 4.50 ERA that ranked 11th in the AL.
In 2008, they came one game short of...

1. Yes I would have let the Dodgers have him for nothing.
2. They very well might have to overpay to get some decent arms in here. Bad teams more often then not have to overpay to get talent.
09-12-2012, 11:57 AM
No I don't think the Twins would contend for the division with a league average pitching staff.
09-12-2012, 11:38 AM
What the hell do the Pirates have to do with this? Morneau isn't part of the future, he won't be here whenever they contend again. So you ditch that salary so you can play the cheap MLB ready 1B you...

And if you read my posts you'll see that I said the O's are better then they were a year ago. They made some good moves that made them a better team. But you devoted the first chunk of your article...
09-12-2012, 10:22 AM
And bad teams get better by sheding expensive players when they have a MLB ready kid in the farm system who makes nothing ready to roll.
None of us know what JR's strategy is, but it doesn't...
09-12-2012, 10:08 AM
Then please explain it to me where I'm suppose to be jazzed that Liam Hendriks and BJ ****ing Hermsen are winners of this award. That alone should just make everyone on this board depressed as hell...
09-12-2012, 09:39 AM
The Twins aren't gonna contend for quite a few years. Morneau is a 31 year old 1B with the injury history of a world war 2 veteran. He's expensive, he's injury-prone and he's not getting any younger....
09-12-2012, 09:31 AM
They have a chance based off nothing more then blind ass backwards luck. Would Nick have written this same article if the O's were 68-73 as there pythagorean says they should be...ofcourse not. He...
09-12-2012, 08:39 AM
I wouldn't have cared if the Twins dropped Morneau off at the trash burner next to TF, whatever gets rid of his salary. But at this point it's pretty clear the Twins think they can actually get some...
09-12-2012, 08:24 AM
You don't wanna sign these arms and then teams know you're up against the wall when trying to move Morneau or Willingham. You never want to give a team an edge in that sense.
09-12-2012, 08:13 AM
The funds should be there to get some arms regardless. Signing them is another matter. It's hard enough to get one decent free agent starter, you can't assume that dumping Morneau means you get...
09-12-2012, 07:59 AM
What in the helll does that have to do with what I just said?
Nick laid out this post that the O's have given bad teams hope for a quick turnaround and that's not true. The O's are winning games...
09-12-2012, 07:53 AM
I would have let the Dodgers have him for nothing if they really wanted him. Let Parmelee play 1B and use the funds to get some arms.
I was hoping someone was gonna hit him good in the head and...
09-12-2012, 07:45 AM
The O's are where they are cause of blind luck. Are they a better team now then they were a year ago...yes. But to make it seem like the O's have build some type of blueprint for succees is just...

Love what the guy has done, but who the hell extends players in there 30's coming off career years?
Cause Gardy likes Capps...this franchise has been making moves for years based off who Gardy likes and who Gardy doesn't like.
