    Why does Dozier keep coming up in these discussions? 27 year old All-Star at a very shallow position still under team control. These are the type of players you build around, not trade away.

    Harsh for a guy hitting .254, 4 HR 31 RBI. He could DH for the Twins.

    Perhaps this is a good time to remember that the head trainer has since been fired.

    And perhaps it is luck, but pitching injuries seem to be down quite a bit this year for the Twins. Only Pelfrey...

    I think they did identify the flaw in April of 2013, and he didn't make the adjustment.

    Now that he's having some modest success, he's conveniently throwing everyone else under the bus for missing...

    So, bascially what I'm reading here is that Worley has no control over his own mechanics and only watches video if it's shown to him. He stunk last year, and it's everyone's fault but his own.

    Robinson Cano is my favorite baseball player of the day.

    If I played in the mlb I would enjoy free hits.

    I would have responded to this question earlier but I've been in a deep trance chanting "designate Jarod Burton for assignment" over and over and over.

    Hunter was very similar to Hicks. Even after a full season in the bigs, he needed to be sent back to AAA before he figured it out at age 26. Hicks is only 24 and has yet to play a full season in...

    I get that Gardy isn't going to throw Correia under the bus and I don't think I'd want him to (not that I agree with his entire take - but I don't think he should say "Correia sucks, get me someone...

    A player not showing emotion being equated to not caring. Let me lay out a little example here of the person your behaving like.

    Its your kids first day at school, your wife/gf is pacing the...

    But remember Nishi also sucked as a fielder. At least Florimon can play defense. Nishi had no business in a major league uniform.

    Given the other options the Twins had in the outfield last season, very little would have been lost by playing Parmelee. That's my point.

    It'd be nice to have 550 MLB PAs (of regular playing time,...

  16. Most over-rated player in the last 30 years to retire after 2014 season

    Jeter.

    Don't get me wrong, he is talented and a sure fire hall of famer, but I can't think of a more over-rated player in my lifetime. Defensively he was below average at best, offensively he was...

    While it's definitely not out of the realm of possibility to lose 90 games again, this prediction is just absurd. A one-armed version of Joe Mauer could probably OPS around .750. Bi-lateral "omg...

    Just like how they don't need to sell 60k seats to sell out anymore, nor do they have to sell a bunch to sell out twins fest, which did "sell out" today. So from the Twins point of view, I'm sure...

    Best move of the offseason, IMO. Nothing is more important to this team than Mauer being on the field for 100 more at bats, given their investment in him and his awesomeness.

    To call Mauer a HOF-lock is pretty premature at this point. Yes he did have a great 9-10 season career so far and if he continues for a while, he would likely be in the HOF discussion.

    Here is...

    I think thrylos is right but if Rosario fell off (for PEDs) maybe Jorge sneaks in.

    On a side note, Thorpe might be gaining a lot of helium this offseason. The scouting reports on him were...

    I just don't see how there is a big difference between the Hughes signing and the Pelfrey signing. Grass is greener I suppose.

    Consider: They are both top picks and prospects that failed to pan...

    Mauer does kind of break assumptions about BABIP. He sprays the ball all over. He doesn't hit a lot of fly balls (which have the lowest babip's), and those he does hit, almost none are IFFB's, he...

    I know my least favorite is his careless, post-game celebration stomping. Watch where you step Jacque!
