    Thanks for the continued updates. Just why is Virgil Vasquez, at 32, still taking up a spot in AA New Britain? AA! Couldn't this spot be better filled by someone with a future? Is there a reason for...

    Buxton was hit on "that" wrist and stayed in the 17 inning game, but has not played since. Isn't this a story? Why? Is he OK?

    edit: found some info here...

    Hicks is up to .297 now (13/35 .371 in the last 10 games)....... perhaps he goes to Rochester when Buxton goes to New Britain.

    I can understand Houston being leery of a reported significant smaller ligament, and would rather offer the about $3.1 million bonus instead. "...... three more years he could get hurt" on somebody...

    I love it. Suzuki playing great at an iron man 30, a leader, and might slink back to .274 (or even .250 let's say). How many times have I wished the Twins had a catcher that would hit that other...

    It seems like the AAAA pitchers (and many hitters, too) do horrible, even worse than the mediocre stops in the show, once they get sent back to AAA. I could be way off statistically, but that is...

    The longer they wait to give May and Meyer the call........ the more innings used on limited innings arms in AAA, and the less fresh those arms are. It would be more prudent to let them have the...

    Appel is becoming a worse story than Shooter Hunt.

    The trade should be Pinto. While he may hit in the show, it is still a gamble, and I don't see how he can be trusted with a young pitching staff. No way. I see the next good Twins catcher to be...

    It is a bit, just a bit, but still a bit troubling that i have heard and seen several people bring up that they were relieved that Dozier didn't get blanked........ as they seem to have expected him...

    I would sure hope I am not alone in believing that Pelfrey should be the least likely to have a future with the Twins. Pelfrey, Correia, and Nolasco don't miss bats, and never did. The ineptitude...

    Pinto should be traded, not Suzuki. Suzuki leads the pitching meetings, and is a leader behind the plate. A young staff will need that. Pinto will not be the answer for the next Twins young...

    Looking at his career, I notice just the opposite. Correia, including last year, has tended to start well, and fade as the seasons goes on. He was pretty horrid to start this year, but with half...

    Well, I can never go with a glittering generality about any team, and I do not agree the Cubs are bad because they're the Cubs.



    I certainly don't claim a "truism" in my musings, and I thought...

    I think that Suzuki's leadership for a young staff is very integral. Pinto is expendable. I feel Suzuki is the one to take the Twins to the future catchers, who I believe are Stuart Turner (Fort...

    Is anybody as excited as me that we have a 32 year old pitching a complete game in AA ball?

    ouch! that is not writing the storybook chapter.
    ............. and what about the 24 year old that is pitching to a 28-31 year old? I think age is so very very over rated.

    Johnson has had a very good AAA season, and it could be said he deserves to get an opportunity. Somehow, these Pino and Johnson call ups also feel frighteningly similar to the seasons of PJ Walters,...

    I bet Jose Fernandez thanks forces daily that he was never in the Twins' system. You never know if they are ready unless you bring them up and give them starts. May and Meyer are no longer young. ...

    A team could sign Cuddyer for probably way too much to regress back to the .260's (which would make him one of this team's average leaders, unfortunately) or less. No to Cuddyer. Yes to Torii, the...

    If Dozier's participation ruins that already menacing .230 average, I will be really disappointed. Hard to understand him even being invited, and more hard to understand Dozier accepting.
