    Re: Pressly. He had a 3.87 era as a rookie. I certainly don't classify his 2013 as poor.

    Re: Guerra. He had a blood clot, not Tommy John.

    I was trying to figure out why you photoshopped Paul O'Neill in between them for the whole time I was reading the article.
    Then, I scrolled up, realized it was a baseball card, felt embarassed, and...

    His margin of error is narrow. He's been stable and reliable, but not especially effective throughout his career. So, yeah, we should be worried about Ricky Nolasco because he's Ricky Nolasco and he...

    I don't know how many teams could field a quality outfield while all 3 starters, + a first baseman and a reinforcement outfielder are all out at once.
    Mastro and Presley were not going to make an...

    I believe they brought in some veterans who they could trust to set a good example, take some pressure off the kids, and lead the clubhouse.
    A lot was made about this team lacking fire. The veterans...

    I don't care what anyone says. This team's CF problem is MUCH worse than its SS problem. Fuld is a downgrade from Mastroianni and either has a fair shot to outproduce Hicks this year.
    Please rise...

    He's had his power stroke working for a while now. He's on the NL leader board top ten in avg, slg, rbi, doubles and tied for 14th HR (1 shy of the top ten.)

    I thought he was ready last season to...

    Right now, I'd wanna bat Cola and Kubel 3, 4 and 4, 3 at least until Arcia and Willingham come back.
    Keep Hicks low in the order so he can fly below the radar.

    Shane's probably just described the best plan.

    When he came onboard with the club, I was opposed to the idea of a no-hit SS. Then I watched him play. Honestly, his D is such an asset that his bat...

    Bravo, Nick! I wholeheartedly concur. This casting decision seems to leverage only the weaknesses of the pitcher with the best chance to be their best starter.

    Bleeeeccchh. Drew is a solid grade C player at the end of his prime.
    Bat? OK. Career OPS =.764
    Glove? I only know what I've read. Words like "average, solid, unspectacular."

    There just isn't...

    The answer at leadoff?
    I gottit!

    Trevor Plouffe.

    I know you're thinking, "What? This commenter doesn't understand the tools a leadoff hitter needs to be successful."
    Fair enough. Ignore that...

    Totally misread this headline as, "Tanaka, Topless Twins, and Correia."
    Turned out to be much more appropriate.

    "it is looking like Pinto will make the roster because the Twins need his bat."
    "I think Gardenhire would like to have Chris Colabello on the team, but it's going to be tough to fit him along with a...

    Yuck. Deduno is the only one of the seven who I actually look forward to watching start. Looks like a summer's worth of dvr-ing games to watch offensive halves of innings.
    I see the value in all...

    Sorry, dudes. Worst. Episode. Ever.

    Help us, John Bonnes. You're our only hope.

    " He provided NO power in his limited time last year. He is not, at all, a bench bat. "

    Just because we didn't get to see it in 81 at bats last year (36 which were post-concussion) doesn't...

    Phooey. This felt inevitable. Too bad it wasn't just a little more apparent to the docs last fall.
    This has to be so frustrating for a ball player on the verge.
    Can't wait 'til he's back!

    I love when Madre Dos drops comments like this! It's a great reminder that these players are real people. It makes following prospects that much better. Don't feed Jose Berrios shrimp. That advice...

    Thrylos, you made a number of points in this thread that I applaud, but I'll never understand your disdain for Michael Cuddyer. Every mention of his name seems to rub you wrong.
    I sure wouldn't have...

    His 1996 season in which he posted 8.6 wins above replacement (via baseball-reference.com) still stands as the Twins' second best season as measured by that statistic (Rod Carew's 1977 season was the...

    I totally get this, Mike. I was more satisfied watching Hicks struggle last year than watching Doumit be sort of okay. There is a hope when watching a younger/higher-ceiling athlete take his lumps. ...

    Hrbek debuted at age 21, Puckett at age 24.
    Sano and Buxton are each 20. BB just turned 20 last month and has played 173 games of professional baseball. Seems a bit premature to complain that Terry...

    It's nice to see he got off to a solid start. I will be rooting for him.
    I need to have more trust in Twins Daily readers to pick up on my dumb jokes.

    "Tanner Vavra... hit just .246 in E-Town, but got on base about 36% of the time."

    Sounds like Tanner Vavra has a good eye.
