Travis has continued to play LF in recent games for the Miracle. Although it's still early in the season, the Twins are clearly letting him develop his fielding abilities as a corner OF. ...
The thing that I find the most interesting is in depth historical analysis
HS Pitchers drafted in the top 5, top 10, top 20, 1st rd, 2nd rd,....
HS Hitters drafted in the top 5, top 10, top 20,...
From the AJC article:
According to Keith Law ... "Gilmartin's fastball sits mostly 87-89 mph with a decent changeup, below-average breaking ball and good control … He might be a fifth starter,...
A few years ago me and my buddies were walking along at the State Fair, and we came across the Giant Yellow Slide -- a towering three level structure that is a central fixture at the...
Punto as a utility guy was pretty good. Punto at starting SS and $4M/yr was not. Punto as Gardy's security blanket was annoying. It was because of that last item that most who wanted him to go felt...
You'll care when you are getting replacement level production for millions of dollars with an untradeable contract. We've all heard that complaint before.
But that said, the "who is available" is...
For my perspective this has been a very good off-season. Adding (and improving) the SP has been very welcomed. (Disclaimer: Yes we didn't land any aces, but compared to 2013 SP is/should be...

I messaged Oswaldo on July 4th and I told him that I didn't think that there were to many 22 year olds that can say that they have a hit off of Pettitte, Hughes and Sabathia. He was happy that his...
Recalling Greg Gagne, Mark Belanger, Ed Brinkman, Leo Cardenas, and Luis Aparicio makes me think good shortstops don't need to be high average hitters.

Top 10 is cut off.

I agree with kab on pretty much everything in this thread.
1. Stashing a guy in the pen for a couple of months won't hurt anyone.
2. Stashing Gibson in AAA for a couple of months won't kill...
Well, has shown that he can hit MLB pitching... The problem is that it's so infrequently that it's increasingly difficult to believe he will ever be an adequate MLB hitter overall.
I've never found the argument, they have made this mistake in the past, therefore they should continue to make the same mistake, very compelling.
The too much starting pitching disease, is not a...

While they are moving 3.5 mill off the books, Kubel is essentially signed to a 1 year 3 mill deal so he's just replacing Doumit.
The team is basically trading Doumit for Kubel & Gilmartin. I'll...
There's no point in getting worked up. It's difficult to turn the worst starting rotation into an above average rotation in one off season. Secondly, like was already mentioned, we can't force people...

I can't help but be reminded of a very similar 2 year deal completed last off-season, and the vitriol and doom-foretelling that took place. I expect similar results.
I like the idea of a trade.
Relievers seem to have quite a bit of value. Jerry Blevins just landed the A's a nice prospect.
Worley and Diamond should still have some value as well. Both...

I am fairly certain that we'd lock him up long before his arbitration ran out if he was trending that good. Sano should be a Twin for at least a decade (3-4 years + early extension for 6-8 years). ...
Florimon or Drew? Ok in 6 months who is gonna have trade value?
Who is going to have both a positive O-WAR and D-WAR?
Which guy is going to have to bat 9th? As for money left to spend , we have...
I've actually come around to liking this idea more as I look around. Drew is very comparable to J.J. Hardy, both in offense and defense.
He makes up for the fewer HR's with a higher OBP, and...
I was always a big Hendriks fan, so I'm bummed to see him go, but I can understand why the Twins made the move. The roster is changing and the Twins can't afford to give a spot to a guy who is still...
Cant they be PTBN? and then in June traded?
I should probably go find your comment on another thread, but at the risk of meandering off-topic of this thread, I'll respond regarding the concern regarding run scoring by saying I think the...
I'm guessing they don't sign anyone else for the rotation so I think that you may be right about the last two spots in the rotation. However, if Deduno looks good in ST this year he has to be a lock.

Great thread but a difficult one. I love to follow the Twins minors but simply don't have the knowledge of Seth and Jeremy and others. However....
Kohl Stewart. Might be an easy pick, but this...
