    I noticed the same thing at first. It looks like it's fixed now (at least on iTunes).

    I don't think it's a terrible idea, assuming it's the right kind of contract. Of course, the right kind of contract would be a 1-year, team-friendly-ish deal with the assumption that we flip him at...

    Yeap I heard Cristian Guzman is available he is super fast! How about Luis Rivas? My point is you dont have to be super fast to play middle infield.[/QUOTE]

    I wish the Twins had done this. According to Jeff Passan, the Marlins really wanted to get rid of Escobar. The word he used was "panicked": ...

    It SHOULD be Mauer. You want your best hitter in the #2 spot (I think they cover it in The Book: Playing the percentages... if I remember correctly). It wouldn't surprise me if it's a light-hitting...

    How about the Marlins' payroll in 2013? Dan Brooks is saying on Twitter he's heard it could be anywhere from about 12.5 million to 25 million. Wow. Just wow.

    Looks like this is why the Cubs pulled out of the trade:

    I would love to get James Shields as long as the Rays aren't asking for too much. I think Denard Span plus a good prospect is a lot, but it would be worth it, especially since we would have him for...

    I think I was 8 when I saw that head-first slide into home. I remember copying it while playing kickball at school. Of course, now I know better than to slide head-first into home. But as a kid,...

    I don't understand the benefit of having Gibson pitching through September. It's unlikely that the Twins will be competitive in 2013, so if they want to cap Gibson's innings at 130 then it doesn't...

    Would a good comparison be the system used with Japanese players? For example, with Yu Darvish, the Rangers paid nearly $52 million for the rights to negotiate with him, then signed him to a 6 year,...

    Did they have a comfy lead in June and July? I thought things were a little tighter then. I don't really remember, though.

    I understand why they would want to limit his innings and it makes...

    I've seen this many times. Why don't people feel that Gibson will be ready by the beginning of the season in 2013?

    Personally I think he has an excellent shot to make the starting rotation out of...

    I mostly agree with this, but I would mash the first two points into one: I would hope for a starter who has #2/borderline-#1 upside. Also, when do you want to take a snapshot of the rotation and...

    I don't think anyone is saying this is impossible. Medical staffs do make mistakes on every team. The problem with the Twins is that there seems to be A LOT of mistakes.... and some of them (like...

    If you listen to Keith Law, he basically thinks that most hard throwing pitchers are going to need to go through TJ at some point anyway, so they may as well get it out of the way earlier in their...

    While I agree that pitching is most important, there's still something to be said for run prevention. I like the Marco Scutaro idea, but he's making 6 million this year, so he might be a little too...

    I think the Twins would gladly take Vargas for Morneau because he seems like the kind of pitcher they target. I'm not sure why Seattle would do this, though. They're nowhere near contending and...

    This year, yes. But in 2010, Target Field ranked 19th in runs scored and dead last in HR. In 2011, it was 21st in runs scored and 20th in HR.
