    Advance Scouting

    Does anyone have any insight on the Twins advance scouting? Do they use a service of some kind or do they employ their own staff? I may be grasping at straws, but it seems like we've been victim...

    0-5 in game #2. The guy's a bust! What a waste of a pick and nearly $4mil! Fire the entire scouting department.

    And So It Begins

    Nick Gordon, 4-5 with a walk and double in his debut. Let the, 'time to move him up' talk begin.

    Not at all. I don't care what he brings to the clubhouse, he brings nothing to the field.

    Kubel has gotta go next. He whiffs about every other AB, has shown no power or run production, plus he's a liability on the bases and in the field.

    I don't care if we have to dredge up some AAA...

    I think you can afford to let Arcia get going everyday at Rochester, until he forces your hand. The BoSox are getting desperate for OF offense. Maybe if Kubel is still hitting in a couple of weeks,...

    I guess Correia's conserving pitches, at least. They're hitting everything he throws up there.

    Our starting pitchers can't even attempt to hold a lead or stem the momentum after we score. It's like they just Tee it up for the next few hitters they face.

    How bad at SS can Escobar be? He sure seems like an upgrade to Florimon offensively. Is it his versatility that keeps the Twins from giving him a multi-game shot at SS, or do they already suspect...

    Since last week? No. But over the past couple of years? Yes. His K rate has risen dramatically. He now plays a much less rigorous position defensively, supposedly allowing him to maintain his...

    Time for Mauer to Smell the Coffee

    Whether it's due to age, wear or whatever, Joe's quick reactions and batspeed are slowing down. Since even before the concussion, his K rate has been climbing steadily over the past three years, to...

    Don't look now, but Levi Michael is raking at Ft. Myers. Finally! Due to his age and experience, I wouldn't be too surprised if he gets the call to New Britain before Polanco does. Anyone know if...

    BJ Hermsen?

    Any word on how my fellow Iowan BJ Hermsen has fared this spring? I know he was battling injury early last season and never seemed to recover. He is still only one season removed from being the...

    I don't claim any inside knowledge. But I'll offer this scenario for Bartlett & Kubel sticking despite their respective springs. There were a lot of rumblings about apathy in the clubhouse and a...

    My ample gut tells me that Parm makes the team due to his lack of options. Cola deserves to stay, but will fall victim to his ability to be optioned. Hopefully he plays in the OF exclusively with...

    Derreck Rodriguez

    I didn't realize that Pudge Jr. was making the transition from CF to Pitcher. Assuming he pitched as an amateur, has he pitched anywhere else? Winter ball perhaps? I'm guessing he has a live arm...

    No thanks. He's 29 and has regressed as his playing time and experience have increased. He struck out 147 times last season. We don't need that kind of man in our lives. We're better off giving...

    Gonna say over as well. I think they want to get as good at him as possible. Plus they want him comfortable around the clubhouse because I seriously see him with the club after the Futures Game.

    Nishioka's failure at a relatively modest expenditure will prevent the Twins from spending what will be required to land Tanaka. I'm not so sure he will end up being worth what he will cost anyway. ...
