    I recall him setting down the Yankees in order in the 8th inning, preserving our lead in 2009 ALDS Game 2. I was kinda hoping he would pitch the 9th too, as Nathan struggled down the stretch (and...

    A step in the right direction, frees a 40-man roster spot. Not much excuse to keep Meyer down any longer, especially with an open Saturday start looming.

    Hey, we're only X games behind these non-playoff teams! And we have a better farm system than them too!

    Over Fuld, yes Span is an upgrade. Span has done that (or better) consistently over 7 seasons, near 4000 PA. Fuld's got 150 PA at his current level. Plus, Span is 2 years younger than Fuld.

    On the general subject of Correia, he seems like an OK dude, but I guess a couple things colored my perception of him before he even became a Twin:

    1) He was an undeserved all-star in 2011. He...

    So in June 2015, if Sano is hitting well at Rochester but Deibinson Romero is still there and hitting maybe a little bit better than Sano, you would be OK with Romero getting the call? And should...

    Seems ironic that, in a post saying the only FA pitchers willing to come here are the likes of KC, you named 3 pitchers with higher upside who also came here (and for more money than KC).

    Careful with using select trades as a benchmark for others, especially trades that seem very favorable to one team even at the time (i.e. Doumit and Beltran). Such deals are always possible, sure,...

    It should be noted that the MLB pension "retirement age" is not when the player retires from baseball, but more of a traditional workforce retirement age (62, I believe). So they generally don't get...

    But WAR isn't really a counting stat -- you can (and many Twins regularly do :) ) get negative WAR. Danny Santana is at +4.7 offensive runs now, but if his next 140 PA are like Escobar's last 140...

    I'll take that from our fill-in CF, should-be 4th OF.

    If Fuld keeps it up, and Escobar keeps going down, I think Santana may be the full-time SS upon his return.

    You are correct on all counts. As a AAA veteran, Pino was probably making more than most AAA guys, and he will see another bump from being on the 40-man roster. But he will only be paid the...

    Don't look now, but Escobar's down to an 87 OPS+, with a sub-.300 OBP.

    And Danny Santana's line? Virtually identical to that of Escobar on June 1st, right down to the K/BB rates.

    Agreed, good to see he is performing like a more normal ballplayer again.

    Let him sustain this over a bit larger sample, maybe improve that groundball rate a bit , before promoting him to AAA.

    This is a good example of what I was getting at. In Gibson's case, regardless of when he came up in 2013, the fact that he came up and struggled informed our offseason decision-making (re-sign Pelf,...

    Meyer wouldn't burn an option year unless he was added to the 40-man/25-man and then sent back down to AAA before season's end. And actually, he would have to spend more than 20 days in AAA while on...

    It's unsurprising given the options, but it's also more than a little uninspiring. Herrmann's slash line has been decent this year at AAA -- but it's still largely AVG driven and his BB and K rates...
