To put it bluntly, I despise this thinking. The notion that business and basic morality/ethics cannot coexist is a bad one and it does a lot of damage to everyone involved, excepting those at the top...
In all seriousness, I believe increased media has also removed the luster of the World Series and especially the All-Star game. It wasn't that long ago that growing up in rural South Dakota meant...

This list was really funny. I heard TC Bear is ahead as well.

Yep. This is why I'd strongly consider holding on to Suzuki. Do the Twins need another Sean Gilmartin in the organization if it means they put Eric Fryer behind the dish in 2015?
If the offer...

Arcia and Vargas deserve a shot at DH/1B/RF (for Arcia). At some point, if your strategy is to build through the farm system, you actually need to use the farm system and trust the young guys.
I would be beyond embarassed were that to come to fruition.

Sounds like time to consider a career change?
This is a great point. The team needs to look at who will be parts of the solution in a year or even more likely 2 years, it is likely most would agree that neither Guerrier or Burton are part of...

Especially given that Hughes sought our team and our field in an effort to rejuvenate his career. I think you end up having to give every player a no trade clause if you go down this route once or...

It's bad business to trade Hughes just three months into a three-year deal. Same thing on Morales just two weeks after signing him. If you want your team to be a destination for sought-after free...

I think trading for an ace is much less desirable than buying one in free agency. Free agency costs a lot of money. Trading for one costs a lot of talent AND a lot of money if you plan to keep the...

If the Twins did manage to offer a contract to Jon Lester and he signed it, I bet they would find a spot for him.
I would agree that it's not going to be an immediate need going into 2015, and I'd...

Probably one inning in that Sunday in July.
I really like Kolek. If around . . .
Honestly, I would have been fine with Appel, Gausman, or Zimmer... Now Appel wasn't going to sign, that I get... I dont' think anyone questioned the ceiling (though the comparrisons we see right now...

1. $9 beers.
3. $9 beers.

Yes, exactly. And this has to be known as a pretty solid Terry Ryan offseason so far. Other than Pelfrey, this has all been good.

Funny how this board was talking about DFAing Doumit yesterday and now the general tenor is that trading him for a former first-round pick was a bad move. Kubel would likely beat him out of the DH...

I'd like to give Daniel Hudson a shot. Really I'm OK with taking a shot at any of the (assumably) cheap low risk/high upside guys, Halladay, Santana, Niemann or Floyd.
As some will say the team...
