    "Berrios has a complete assortment of pitches, probably more than most scouts have seen. His fastball sits in the 92-94 mph range and topped out at 95-96 mph at the Excellence Games."...

    I'd stop rooting for the Twins for sure and I'd probably lose interest major league baseball for quite some time. Being from Iowa originally, I'm guessing I'd end up rooting for the Royals. A small...

    WNAX is what I listen to when I head to the parents in Fort Dodge as well. Night games are more problematic, especially if the Twins are on the west coast.

    Baseball Allegiance Map

    Roughly what I would've expected in Iowa(except weird Yankees presence, not sure what that's about). One step the Twins could take to help expand that presence further south is some better radio...

    Dave Cameron continue to hate Kubel. I don't think he's had one nice thing to say about Kubel his whole career.

    Even more infuriating is Fox Saturday baseball. If St. Louis or the Cubs are on, good luck ever seeing the Twins game. Logic would dictate that since channels are digital you could put the Twins game...

    You do get a discount if he struggles next year though, or the foresight not to commit a lot of years to a guy already in his 30's. Signing a guy in his 30's, coming off a career year when you...

    Living within the constraints of a typical lineup I could certainly live with: Buxton Dozier? Mauer Arcia Sano sometime in 2015.

    Your either overrating Florimon's futility with the bat or underrating Butera's. 100 pts of OPS is a lot. With good defense at SS a .600 OPS is tolerable, a .500 OPS isn't, regardless of position.

    I'm not wild about Gilmartin, wasn't excited about the scouting reports before he was drafted, that said, I like this deal for the Twins. Looking at his splits and some of the more recent stuff I've...

    Comparing baseball to football in this respect seems pretty asinine to me its a contact sport vs primarily non contact sport. There are deliberate rules already in place about obstructing a runner at...

    He mentions questioning Sano's age, I hadn't heard anything on that front for quite some time. Also didn't Sano get a fair amount of extra scrutiny when he turned 16 about his age? Seems like it...

    No issues giving up Rosario for Brett Anderson, assuming as he's willing to work out an extension. Rosario is a nice B prospect but not an otherworldly talent and he's at a position the Twins got...

    Ellsbury's average out 5ish wins(even with missing significant time to injury) over the past 3 years, 22 million per is not that bad of deal. Speed guys tend to age well offensively as well so that...

    Seems like a salary dump by Baltimore to me. Weeks one good season was the product of a very high BABIP. Johnson is going to be overpaid but is actually a talented player.

    Mid to upper 20% range, right around league average. If you suspect last year was an anomaly he put up a couple seasons of .700 OPS which is respectable for a catcher. The other advantage he has over...

    As the JJ Hardy trade should illustrate, getting bad value for a player merely because you have a follow up move to replace him is a bad idea.
