    This thread wasn't really about pushback to keep Anderson as pitching coach. It was more about applying blame and credit equally. If you are going to blame Anderson for failing to make mediocre...

    For starters let's not call it an extension. We could bring him back in the offseason on a 1 yr deal but you make that decision when you see how the market is playing out and after any rookies have...

    Why are we excited about a 31 yr old RP'ing prospect?

    It's too early to convert Meyer to a RP'er. If you do it now then he won't be able to handle a full season's innings next year.

    I'm not...

    Burdi is not several years away. We should see him by next year at the latest. And this year is possible.

    His ERA's the last 4 years
    2.97

    His velocity is actually up this year (mostly in the bullpen). He's K'ing more batters. He's 26. The Twins should be getting this guy...

    Achilles injuries suck. This isn't a trivial recovery or something that comes back 100% (as a 30 something). I think combined with his other injuries that he's recovering from that it's the end.

    But it doesn't intellectually make sense when you don't have young (good) prospects getting the AB's that Morales is taking and the players that he replaces suck.

    If Sano wasn't out for the year,...

    We aren't developing Santana as a CF'er, we are playing the best current option. He also doesn't need to develop much as a SS (his defense is really good), he needs to develop as a hitter. This is...

    The public is not aware of this. I explained everything to my father at a Kernals game and he was shocked at how little they were paid. And my estimates were apparently way too high. 1150/mo?

    Gutierrez was never on the fast track to the majors or becoming the next closer. He was a closer in college partly due having TJ in what I believe was his sophomore year. They didn't want to push...

    Additionally what happens if he dominates the minors with a devastating slider and an okay fastball. Garza did this to an extent with his fastball and it took years for teams to get him to offspeed...

    here's a frame of reference for what the Twins would be getting back. He's been traded for Dakota Bacus and David Freitas at the midseason. And most likely it would mean that Fryer was getting...

    But many are dismissing the big long term problem. He can't hit currently and if that doesn't improve then he's not a major leaguer regardless of how many walks he takes.

    Because w/o Suzuki the Twins have Pinto and nothing at C for the near future. I cannot understand why people want to make the Twins worse unless there is a really good prospect involved.

    There is no rational justification to getting rid of Suzuki right now unless the Twins can land a good prospect (top 150ish). He started out his career as a very good catcher and if he has merely...

    going below slot doesn't mean taking a lesser player. If it turns into a 4 player draft (I hope not) and the player that the Twins want to take knows that there is a chance that he slides to #8-10...

    Extraordinarily awesome. You can kiss your money goodbye but that doesn't make the action any less awesome. And the money is the least important thing if you do hit on the longshot odds.
