    I sure hope they don't just cut bait on him and rather demote him and hope he figures some things out in the minors. The mishandling of Hicks from the get-go last season is one of the things that...

    I think I would him a C, C+ at best. My main qualms with the job he's done this season have to do with Josmil Pinto, who for most of the season has been the Twins' 2nd or 3rd best hitter. In order...

    The only thing on that list that I could reasonably expect to improve based on any type of analysis is the Mauer thing, so that's what I chose. He's been too good for too long to keep this up...

    Just being realistic about this team's talent level is all. I'm as big a Twins fan as any, but I don't realistically see us contending for a division title this year. If I'm wrong, that's great. ...

    Dozier Extension? Not so fast

    I, like everyone, love Brian Dozier. From last June on, he's been a very good player. This year, he's been great, and if this performance is sustainable, he has shown that he can be a fixture at 2B...

    Do I like what I see? Absolutely. Am I sold? Absolutely not. Need to see more, but one of the silver linings of having a team that isn't super competitive is that we can afford to give him an...

    Wow, this was really cool! I've been a Plouffe critic, but I've always liked the image he portrayed off the field and I remember meeting him at TwinsFest when he was in the low minors, always a...

    Under, the hitters will cool off (to an extent) and the starting pitching will remain largely inadequate.

    Maybe, and perhaps it's a bit concussion-related as well. If I remember correctly, Morneau started slow the year he got one when he was hit in the head with a pitch in Seattle and subsequently...

    I'm going to be honest, I was extremely skeptical of him coming into Opening Day. I thought after last year that he was just washed up, but it appears that he still has something left in the tank. ...

    If in another 4-5 starts Pelfrey has not starting pitching at least competently, I would love to see him DL'd or sent to the bullpen while Meyer or May gets the call to the big leagues. If and when...

    My response to your saying it's "galling" for him to bunt: On that play I believe the Royals were using a slight shift towards right field, with the third baseman playing a few paces towards 2nd more...

    Even if the batted ball profile is at this point a fluke, the improved approach and patience at the plate itself is a welcome adjustment. I'm not ready to say that he has turned a corner, but his...

    I wish Jason well as he rides off into the sunset, so to speak. He was one of my favorite players (aside from the obvious Mauer, Morneau, Santana, Liriano) on the 2006 Twins which was one of the...

    As far as Hicks hitting 2nd, he has a 57 wRC+ so far this season, with a .180 batting average. I'm not quite ready to give up on him completely, but he hasn't done anything this year to warrant...

    He won multiple (I think) Gold Gloves behind the plate, an MVP, and carries a career .404 OBP while playing the most physically demanding position in baseball. If he's not, I'll care even less about...

    Congrats Gardy on 1K! I often criticize him, but I'll always be nostalgic for the teams he managed in the early 2000s when I was falling in love with baseball and the Twins. Here's to many more W's.

    You know I had pretty much exactly the same observations of what I saw of CB yesterday. I even made a joke on twitter about his wife wanting him home early for dinner. And then I went on...

    I honestly think what I'm noticing is that he doesn't make the throws well when he thinks he has plenty of time. Seems like when it's a speedy guy he just throws the ball hard, but when he doesn't...

    My neighbors had a tennis court when I was a kid, and believe me it was rarely used for tennis. In the winter, it was a hockey rink, but in summers, it was for home run derbies. By the time we were...
