Yes. You sell high. Billy Beane, etc...or anybody in anything, you sell high. And the thing is, he's a FA at the end of the year. Handle him right and you can go back after him after the year (if he...
Could potentially soften the likelihood of Suzuki being traded...or at least gives said team a shot at another catcher before they'd get 'desperate' to try the trade market of Suzuki...
The Twins got their 2nd major signing....$450K.
Jean Carlos Arias, OF, L/L, 5'10'' 150.
If they're 5-9 before the All-Star break...I'd expect we'd be 12 games or so out of 1st...and then the FO would likely be very open to trades. Especially since Morales & Willingham can leave the...
I thought I remember thinking this too...but maybe not? Do you recall which play?
I know in the rundown that caught Adrian Beltre off of 1st...but that was Esocar or the Pitcher not coming in...

Good read. Been wanting for an article like this. And further updates on those two guys...
Nice to hear they may be forming a great friendship to build on.
I've watched the Twins a lot more...

The weird thing...as successful as Santana is...many of his "outs" are hard hit liners that required a good play by the other team.
He hasn't looked phased at all even when down 0-2.
I think there were initial concerns, as he doesn't quite fit 'the picture' of today's 6'3+" 220+ thoroughbred pitchers.
I kinda figured he'd 'compete' his way up the ladder at a much slower...
You're either a lawyer or Jon Stewart :)
E. Tim Keefe in 1880, although he only pitched 105 innings, so I'll go with the #2 guy there. One Pedro Martinez.
Pedro's opponent batting line is...

Now that Escobar is cooling down, would Santana get a shot at SS? He's hotter at the dish than Nunez and Nunez has looked equally horrible in LF as Santana in CF. Granted Nunez has looked alright at...

As Thrylos pointed out...Hicks .331 OBP...as bad as he has been, he's still getting on base 1 in 3 times. And his defense is better than any other Twins OF. Fuld, meh.
For the other...
Some great discussion going on here, love getting the updates each night from this thread. Can definitely tell there is lots of research, watching games if possible, and the like going on.
Man alive...that's a LOT of arms and legs. And despite being a college pitcher, he's only 21 years old too, 22 in September.
He's a guy who could end up in AA by year end. I know it's only rookie...

Loved the article. And to Joe's point on Torii. Yes, though I thought it was 3 years for $15M and he got 5 for $75M? I could be totally mistaken...

Also...this GREAT quote from Red Sox's 3B Will Middlebrooks, who was making a rehab start against Rochester tonight...
"I asked a coach, 'Who'd he make mad? Why is he here? Are there five guys...
Walks aren't 'fun'...but I will say, the patience of the Twins hitters as well as not diving after that low and away slider (Torii Hunter re-runs in my mind) is rather refreshing. This team has...
I don't think those projections are anything 'unusual'...as your question was that.
The difference with some is they feel he won't get there.
Keith Law feels he will.
I do too.
In the running for a GG each year defensively.
He'll never be a leadoff hitter for long in this organization with Buxton's permanence in MLB probably starting in 2016, if not sometime in 2015.

My thinking is along these lines too.
I think Hicks, Arcia, Meyer, Pinto, etc should start in MLB, assuming they all start.
I would put Kubel, Bartlett, and any of the poorly performing...
I'm sorry, but that makes no sense whatsoever, by any respected publication or scout or anyone in the baseball industry. I understand we all have our biases, but THAT is crazy...
The truth is a...

I was wondering if any of you guys knew websites for best keeping track of which top prospects were still in on the MLB spring training roster.
Or a place to see current MLB rosters (would be a...

AAA is worse than AA in the opinion of David Ortiz and many MLB players. The mentality is different and you get guys throwing 87-90 mph iwth a lot of junk.
Better to be in AA and see a 95-98 mph...
You also need to more heavily weigh games post injury and most recent games. He's not 25 anymore and he's not pre-ankle injury.
Those numbers are long gone...

AAA is largely an irrelevant step for getting to the bigs. It's a place holder often for marginal MLB talent.
If you asked all 30 MLB teams out there if they'd rather have their roster of AAA...

Well...honestly, I was just going by the averages. I don't even think that's optimism :)
A little bit of 'Did you know?'
Since 1990 Baseball America has been ranking prospects and since then...
