    I doubt Carroll would've put it in play early - he's nothing if not Mauer-esque in his patience and plate discipline.

    Agreed, it was a bit frustrating to understand the point you were trying to make. Aaron was not arguing sabermetrics - he was simply stating that Dozier getting less at bats is good. There is no...

    On a similar note: are we of the delusion that players aren't still doping right now? Certainly these guys know about EPO and how well that works and how quickly you can taper off of it before a...

    What's the argument for Perry or Ford being in the HoF then? Is cutting or greasing baseballs not cheating? Or is that just a clever or funny way to cheat so it's ok? How is that advantage any...

    I'd also like to point out that while McGwire, Bonds and Sosa were ripping jack-jobs off of every thing thrown their way, no one was saying boo about it. The fans loved it, the media loved it and the...

    Like it or not, baseball's history is nuanced and complex - just like the rest of human history. The fact that it does have such a rich history (for better or worse) is part of what makes baseball...

    Yup, I'd predict Gardy retires from the job before the front office shows him the door. Andy I'm not so sure of. He might...

    The Twins should take whatever they can get for Capps or even just look for a salary dump without any C level prospect - I'd be fine with that. They're paying this "proven closer" ~$80000 per out at...

    money down the drain

    Agreed. Just because the Twins have the money doesn't mean those 2-3 (Hamels, Grienke and maybe Peavy) top tier guys are going to sign with a cellar dweller. It's a little harsh to say that the Twins...

    SP FAs

    Have the Twins ever spent 5 years / $90 million on a FA starting pitcher? None of those top level starting pitcher FAs would want to come here anyway.

    I'm very interested to see if the Twins are...

    I'm getting really tired of the money argument for Mauer. It's just an easy out for the booers. When a guy of that caliber comes along you almost never get the value of the long term deal that you...

    For as many question marks there are surrounding Liriano, there is no way the Twins give him the kind of money he'll demand as a free agent. I don't care how much potential he has. If he goes on to...

    Completely agree here. I really like that the Twins mixed up their draft strategy this year with the pitching - go after a whole slew of hard throwing college relief arms and hope for 25% success....

    Contending where?

    (1) I'm guessing the Twins have no interest in resigning Baker.
    (2) Of Gibson, Wimmers and Diamond - I would say maybe one of those guys ends up being a solid #3/#4 starter. Maybe.
    (3) Pavano and...

    AL Central conundrum

    This is what's tough for a team like the Twins to be in the AL Central: they get on these streaks near the middle of the season approaching the trade deadline and find themselves in no-man's land of...

    I agree to a point. In my opinion, anyone on this team should be considered eligible for trade. Not stupid trades just to dump salary or turn things over for the sake of turning things over, but as...

    If you know what he's getting at then how were you lost? His WPA has been mediocre at best for the season thus far. I also don't agree with booing Mauer but that doesn't mean we can't look...

    I'm going to go ahead and agree with you. Ownership seems to work within a pretty specific budget. When's the last time the Twins signed an "elite free agent"?

    Baseball, as much or more than other sports, has a large mental/psychological/emotional component that I think is largely left up to the individual player to handle. Each an experiment of one. It...

    I'm hoping you're being sly here, yes? His name is Ramos and we got Capps for him in a trade, who we now overpay and lost two draft picks for doing so.

    Is it normal for any pitcher no matter his previous arm health to be throwing anywhere near "hard" in the first few days of spring training?

    I fully agree. Relearning timing and coordination for one of the hardest activities to do in all of sports (hit a baseball) after a concussion cannot be easy at all. Safety-wise it's probably a wash...

    If he can't play one of the easiest fielding positions in the game, how do we expect him to hit 90+ mph stuff with relearned reaction times and visual perception? I'm with Morneau regarding the idea...

    Yes, we've heard "earning their spot" many-a-spring training when in truth we know that rarely to be the case. I'd guess the Twins will carry Mauer, Doumit and Butera.
