Perhaps the Orioles believe they can turn our outcasts into better players. I really don't see a rivalry. I recall JJ Hardy saying that the training staff helped him in 'different ways' from the...
I've always liked De Aza, but we have the depth we need in the OF. Unless he's virtually free I wouldn't trade anybody for him.
Well, I hope Plouffe either A) Makes himself a starter (a la Dozier 2013) or B) Sucks so much it's consensus he's gone next year. I just hope not C) OK and probably will be here again in 2015 even...

Man, this kinda ruined my day. It feels like 2014 is gonna be another lost season.
It got worse when I realized this locks Plouffe in 3B for a good chunk of the season. However, if he keeps playing...
Hahahaha... I never realized how much dough we are going to have to pay Sano and Buxton if they are as good as we hope. Hoo boy. In 8 years, nobody will remember the griping about Mauer's big...

You said it, Glanzer, I just boo at the Yankees as a whole. I don't hate Jeter for anything. I just hate the Yanks in general.

I don't really get this signing, but maybe the writing on the wall is Scott Diamond getting traded away (for a PTBNL, of course). I was really hoping that Emilio Bonifacio would get this last spot on...
I'm going to one of our games between the 10th and 14th. Not sure which one yet. I really want to see Sano or Buxton (or both) for the first time.
I'd really like to add Bonifacio to our bench. He could push Plouffe and back up all the outfield spots. I think he's worth the $3M, I just wouldn't pay him anything more than that. I am afraid that...
I would have liked to sign Capuano instead of Pelfrey... but as it stands, Arroyo is definitely better than Capuano. Arroyo has had something like 10 straight seasons with 190 IP and an ERA under...
Span wouldn't be making this team much better, maybe 2 more wins with him. If Meyer can fit in as a piece of the future (and not get hurt) then it will be a success in my mind, no matter how Span...
I'd actually rather see Romero play 3B, but there's 2 big problems. Plouffe is getting paid and Romero isn't on the 40 man. Oh well, it doesn't really matter because Sano is almost here.
Here goes nothing...
We have enough mediocrity at SP. Adding to what Thrylos said he's also nursing an injury.
There's no way I touch this guy.
I see Sean Gilmartin making the 40 man with Albers likely gone. Unfortunately, this also means we are likely going to see Kris Johnson makes starts at one point. Let's hope for minimal injuries this...
Correia is a definite option to be traded. And I hope Albers isn't a factor because that means either injuries or dysfunction. I do like Albers, but he's sub-par.
I also think Albers is behind...
There are so many guys vying for this #5 slot that it's next to impossible for Albers to make the Opening Day roster, especially if Swarzak is going to become a starter. However, it'd be very wise...

Ha. I realized that when I had just one minute left. So I had to spell Tsuyoshi correctly...
About Parmelee VS Kubel...
Parmelee is an above average OF. Kubel can barely play it.
Parm hasn't hit well, but has the potential. Kubel is past his prime and was horrible last year.

123 for me! I couldn't figure out how to spell Cristian Guzman and I missed Ortiz and Santana. I was perfect for 2010-2013. But I know nothing about the 90s, cause I was born in '95. Oh, and A. J....

We already have Bartlett. Moving on...
Gilmartin is not on the 40-man.
I'm baffled why TR would think Johnson has anything but OK... I probably did put Gibson too high. I don't really know anything about Darnell so you can...

I pick Michael Young because I don't want Plouffe at 3rd. Depends on the price though, he's older and I don't want to pay him much. I think he's better than Drew and he's a high character guy. It...
Here's my thought on the ranks of the current Twins starting pitchers on the 40 man roster:
Gilmartin isn't on the 40 man and he has little talent. However, if this team actually likes Kris Johnson, Diamond could be in trouble. The thing is Johnson is a 29 year old Scott Diamond.
