    On the same day that Nolasco has to get an MRI? Is this the baseball god's way of reminding Twins fans who are about to jump off a cliff that things could always be worse?

    Dang it. It appears it was a dumb beverage night. Was really hoping we had a genius beverage night :)

    Anyway, thought it might be a fun topic to talk about for a few hours

    I definitely don't think that weakness creates better results. I just wonder if the adjustment to stronger legs is harder than we thought it was going to be. But I also agree with thoughts about...

    One more Vavra kid coming up yet. I believe he is a senior in high school this year(or was).Joe is from my hometown and before getting hired by the Twins my wife worked for him while she was in...

    Crazy Joe Mauer Theory???

    Was watching the game last night(and admittedly consuming some beverages). Someone suggested a reason for Mauer's struggles this year. I thought it was crazy, but the more I thought about is(as the...

    Even players we perceive as having little or no value can end up helping. At the time Liriano had 'no value' and now we have Escobar. At the time Morneau had 'no value', and to Pittsburg he was of...

    I'm looking at a similar question-planning to take my son to his first game(at least his first game out of a baby carrier) later this summer.

    My thoughts at this point are to get the cheapest...

    Official roster lists 1 outfielder(Kubel) and three shortstops(Escobar, Santana, Nunez).

    That has to be some sort of a record.

    All from the team that supposedly had such a surplus of...

    I would also add Kubel to the list of those who have cooled off quite a bit.

    But most importantly I think this is a critical time for Brunansky. Before the Dodgers series everyone was praising...

    I think it's awful hard to make too many conclusions about the pitching from this series. Overall, I think all three starters basically had one rough inning but otherwise pitched well enough to give...

    Mike-First of all, you are correct that there isn't a lot for Bartlett to teach Mauer, Suzuki, Kubel or Willingham.(4 of 13 position players, Bartlett makes the 5th true veteran)

    But just because...

    Jason Bartlett made the team for a few reasons in my opinion:

    1)He apparently is versatile defensively, although I haven't seen enough of him play anywhere besides shortstop to verify that myself...

    If my math is correct, the Twins official website lists 25 players on active roster and 38 on the 40 man. So if both Diamond and Parmalle are removed that brings the numbers down to 23 and 36. ...

    Just like everyone else that has commented so far, I am really surprised by this deal. I agree with other posters who have pointed out that 1)the Twins had do something in Nov and couldn't take the...

    True, very little(if any) help for the offense. But take a look at the free agent list for this year. When guys like Salty and Drew are ranked among the top 10-20 position players you know there...

    First time post so be gentle :)

    I would consider Nolasco, Hughes, and Pelfrey as locks(based soley on the recent financial commitment). But with Diamond, Deduno, and Worley out of options would...
