Truly, truly excited for Correia to be making his trade-bait case.
.670 OPS at Fort Myers for the year, though he just is coming back from injury (and his performance may have suffered before going on the DL).
Yesterday, 12:53 AM
Let him get back to AAA after the All-Star break and then see what happens for the rest of July.

I know. There will be some good players involved and even if they never make it as Twins they are added assets to create depth in the farm system so if the Twins top prospects arrive EVER and they...

Maybe you're right. I do think that health issues are the main factor that would be driving down his value.

I bet everything that after Joe Mauer, the least likely guys the Twins will trade are Glen Perkins and Brian Dozier.
Anyway, I don't know if I will have the time to look around at other teams for...

How far do we want to really push even a .500 Twins team back? 2017?

I wasn't even thinking about Burton or Swarzak as getting anything in return. Swarzak was only serviceable as a long relief/mop up guy and Burton is done. Guerrier should be added to the list, at the...

If one loves Suzuki so much, why not get something for him now and then sign him in the offseason. There is no other smart move to make with regard to Suzuki. Sure, there is no guarantee then, but...
Absolutely not. His career right now might be over anyway with this injury. Even without it though, there is just too much risk of decline. And the Twins will roll with Buxton, Rosario, Hicks, and...
Add Vargas as a callup
What should be:
C - Pinto
1B - Mauer
2B - Dozier
3B - Plouffe
SS - Santana
LF - Parmelee
CF - Hicks
RF - Arcia

He didn't, so Gardy doesn't know what he is talking about there either. He spent a lot of time catching, which is just as good.
Herrmann has to ultimately replace Fryer.
In other words, I do think there are psychological ramifications involved here regarding performance. Sometimes actual valued prospects just need to be pushed to keep them them confident about there...
It is odd. He isn't great at CR right now, but he should be in FTM again after being promoted there last year. Fort Myers is a key testing ground anyway for hitters, so they should promote him. Good...
I pitched some back in the day. This does not count as any sort of analysis or comparison, but I probably threw no more than 30 hard pitches total between warmup and the first inning actual warmup on...
Herrmann is back with the Twins after the DLing of Nolasco. He is not really much worse defensively, overall, than Fryer, and his bat might be alive now. Clearly Deduno cannot be the real solution to...
133 plate appearances and Herrmann's OPS has climbed to .892 (.314/.383/.508). He is slugging a good number of doubles. His catching has been solid in AAA and I think it is about time to replace Eric...
In 120 plate appearances, Ortiz has climbed to a .246/.275/.439 (.714) line with 4 doubles, 3 triples, 4 homers, 5 walks and 23 strikeouts. He is starting to figure it out in AAA, and the strikeouts...
That seems like a LOT of warmup pitches. What on earth?
This is a great signing. It's cheap and I laugh at "inconsistency" complaints about a 16-year-old kid! Drawing the "ire of scouts" . . . .hahahahahaha! What? At that age I was consistent about...

1. It isn't bad to give Colabello a chance to start hitting again. If he does, he is a solid fill-in for the time being.
2. The other options, Vargas and maybe Danny Ortiz (Parm to first, Ortiz to...
Sorry I didn't see this. Yes, clearly my griping about not playing him in CF has to do with his 4th OF status.
The AAA numbers are creeping up for Ortiz. In 90 plate appearances, the OPS is up to .694. He has hit 4 homers and has 4 walks. Both of those numbers are dramatic improvements over what he produced...
