    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,...

    With the all-star break, fixed "spots" are less of an issue. The important thing is there is at least 1 rotation spot that is wide open for auditions, etc., and it has been more or less wide open...

    Be very careful with this line of reasoning -- it basically nullifies all fan debate, which is why we're all here. We all know the Twins actions, and we all know the Twins actions are not always...

    Didn't mean to come off as snippy, I just don't see the Twins are particularly eager to do anything with May and Meyer this season (except get them in the Futures Game).

    And I really doubt the...

    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...

    Pino was called up before May got injured, and I'm not really convinced it was just fluke bad timing -- they could have easily worked May into the rotation anytime over the prior month. May was on...

    Agreed it's not surprising -- this has been my suspicion all along. Which is a shame, because they have to add him to the 40-man this winter anyway. Adding him now/soon and keeping him up until...

    First of all, nobody "builds" through free agency or advocates doing exclusively that.

    Second, the problem isn't free agents in general, it's paying a premium for a mediocre but supposedly...

    How soon we forget that PJ Walters started his Twins career with 4 straight quality starts (including a CG).

    This is the kind of thinking that got us into rotation trouble in 2012-2013. Pino...

    Pretty sure I would name myself manager, "Little Big League" style. And make the next owner-for-the-day fire ME!

    Oh, and I'd grant myself infinite wishes.

    Suzuki isn't going anywhere -- the Twins clearly don't think Pinto is ready to be a full-time MLB catcher (if he ever will be). And I think Correia is staying too -- his value is always pretty low...

    Yankees, no question. White Sox is a "fun" hate, like an annoying cousin you like to compete with at a family picnic. (Same for our Central Division rival du jour.)

    Also, we seem to take good luck for granted a bit. Hughes is still outperforming his career starter ERA+ by 22 points. Gibson's been good. The luck is definitely a bit thinner on the offensive...

    Don't know how this misinformation started, but the Twins offer to Torii was only 3/45. The White Sox offered 5/75, before the Angels signed him for 5/90.
