    It will all boil down to whether he can hit the curve ball.

    There was an old adage in baseball, and I think it applies to Hicks. "Can he hit the Curve Ball"--many great athletes could not overcome this. I think this is the key to his advancement. And hitting...

    By all accounts the Twins are a mid-market team. This small market stuff gets old. If the Pohlads wanted a competitive team on the field there would be one. They are the ones who have to step up to...

    I completely agree with Verducci. Listened to his roundtable discusssion on MLB network yesterday--most of the panel(Costas, Verducci, Russo and a few others) did a good job in evaluating the steroid...

    Just the opposite of the above. If he comes back to health and regains his old form then Parmalee should be traded. There is a big disparity in ability between the two if Morneau is healthy. And...

    [QUOTE=Top Gun;72315]Ryan is a cheapskate and a liar that is why Pohlad hire him. He can't give his money away the players know him. He is paid to fool the fans into thinking he can get something...

    1. Hicks isn't quite ready yet

    You don't know that. Only those that work with him everyday do---like the minor league staff. Saw him play in Florida last winter--pretty impressive with his size...

    I agree with the above statement completely. It makes so much sense. Also, there is too much worrry on this site about how the Pohlads spend their money. Their obligation is to put a competitive team...

    Only to fill out the Rochester roster. It doesn't appear that the first three have much of a future in the big leagues. Just not quite there talent wise.

    Seth, I admire your writing and I appreciate everything you contribute to Twins baseball talk, but I totally don't get this perspective. We've had enough of this route to failure over the last...

    Really hope you are right on this one! A 4 era in the American league is pretty good. Wonder what the Twins feel internally on Hendricks future?

    Without getting into the stat stuff--it maybe that Liam just doesn't have the ability to do well at the next level. He has had plenty of opportunity--something like 17 starts with one win. I just...

    Good analysis---can only add--willingness and desire from ownership is needed!

    Yes, another potshot by this guy!

    Well...details and the super remote possibility that someone else may have a different personal taste or opinion.[/QUOTE]

    Can you point to the part where I stated or implied something different?

    USAChief has got this right. I remember listening to Baseball America(XM radio) this spring, and a caller from Iowa asked about the Twins. The hosts said they couldn't figure out the Twins. They said...

    Seth has it exactly right. However, sometimes athletes have an ability to do something without the required fundamentals. Like a hockey player who doesn't skate well, etc. but, he can just put the...

    Are you being serious? Whitey Ford? Warren Spahn?

    I guess Mackey wasn't arguing against a phantom viewpoint after all.[/QUOTE]

    Pretty much this. All I was saying is that while Diamond is the best pitcher in a bad team (and would be if his ERA was a full run higher) he's never going to lead a quality staff for a contender....

    Carroll just missed a great play early in the game and had a crazy hop that was hardly his fault. If you look at advanced stats he has been exceptional at SS, great at 3B and awesome at 2B. The guy...

    I agree with you daveha---Mauer, Willingham and Morneau should be the heart of this club for the next few years. At least until the Sano group is ready. Hopefully some quality free agent pitchers are...

    The above statement makes a lot of sense. Player acquistion, player development, and fielding a competitive team, depends on the Pohlads. They will decide(the Pohlads) when this team will be...
