32, even without roids or greenies is not old. A healthy and in shape Kubes is part of that. He's always been underrated, especially as an OF
Are we realistically talking Cuddyer part 2? I think we may be.

I have a close friend in the organization who snuck in a recorder to the clubhouse during ST just before the season started. Here are some edited excerpts.
Dozier: Everyone doubted me last season....
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you Brock.
You have done nothing here but prove points I've made myself before.
We all see a big strapping athlete and many have wondered why he can't just be a...
The season is WAY too young to make any changes. Gibson has looked phenomenol, despite being squeezed by every umpire calling his games so far. Hughes was excellent today and his last start until the...
My running joke is my crystal ball being in the shop. And the truth is that we HAVE seen tantalizing streaks from Plouffe in the past. And it is those streaks that would offer a bit of a pessimistic...

And you might, and probably are, correct my friend!
Unfortunately, he does have to get healthy first. Then he has to get back in a groove and continue his march to Target Field. But even then,...

I agree with you on Hicks at 1, and where I hope he ends up. But he's not hitting well enough yet, obviously. Yet, his OB and much better approach clearly shows he's moved on from where he was last...

I guess I'm a little old school when it comes to lineups.I remember Downing and Boggs providing the Angels and Red Sox quality Avg and ON with some power but little to no speed. In fact, Boggs is...

Would Gardy let him play SS on his off days?
If so, he will be the first active hall of famer.

The one thing that frustrates me about the Twins SS position is a seeming stubborness against trying anything/anyone else.
I understand Santana's athleticism and potential, but he's just not ready...

Point: Never had my appendix removed. While not a "serious" issue medically, nonetheless, it was time away from the field, conditioning, routine, practice, batting practice, etc. Im not certain the 3...
If there was real logic to the vernacular in baseball, Nishioka would be a four letter word.
"And now batting clean-up for the Royals, just newly signed........"
Personally, I love the potential of this kid. I think he was primed for a very good season last year before his injury setback. He held his own, in my opinion, in the AFL and learned a lot. He also...

I think I'm going to disagree with you on this one.
Now, to be fair, I have strongly advocated leaving Rosario at 2B for as long as possible to allow for various possibilities including: A)...

I hate to admit this, but I honestly know next to nothing about Nunez. Hasn't he filled in before for Jeter when he's missed some time?
Is he really as bad defensively as posters here are saying?
Dozier is NOT being traded.
Kubel? He's younger than Willingham, and quite frankly, better defensively. Let's assume for a moment that his strong-ish end to ST and early start this season are not...
Willingham is trade bait if he continues his good start. Something I hoped for but doubted after such a poor ST.
Question: if Willingham continues his rebound, and the offers for him, straight or...
Come on guys. I truly love all of you. And I love to read all comments and opinions. It's why I'm on here to begin with, to share our mutual love and opinions for the Twins. Losing...
A younger, better, slightly harder throwing version of Diamond?
Hard to predict the future, but only 23, healthy again, back at AA to re-establish himself and get his legs under him. Not another...
This is one of the young kids I'm most excited about. There were some very good write ups after being signed by the Twins originally. But when he didn't show a lot with the bat initially, and being...

Despite being a huge Twins fan, or more reasonably BECAUSE I am a huge Twins fan, I look forward to the start of the minor league seasons as much as the ML season. My morning ritual each and every...

Very excited for all the clubs! I can see playoff possibilities for the top three clubs, or at least winning records. I have a few concerns about the offense at Cedar Rapids.
While I am very...
