    I'm in the same camp. The most glaring and damaging deficiency with the Twins is that it appears they have no philosophy and discipline in place regarding the disposition of moveable assets. They...

    I'm 100% in favor of putting for sale signs on virtually every player for whom we have an adequate replacement or can acquire one cheaply. The trade deadline is the best opportunity to prey on a...

    I hardly think this line of reasoning has any chance to nullify debates with any of us. :)
    We often nullify the notion that there's some reasoned answer we haven't been exposed to from the Twins....

    Yes, like Hicks, whose problem seemed to be that HE didn't know what was best for him.

    I doubt the Twins think about it as holding auditions when they decide which pitcher gets the nod. They pretty much know what they have. And as frustrating as it can be that the FO doesn't show up on...

    The Twins have plenty of information. They see Meyer every day and know what's best for him.

    I guess I'm the lone wolf then. If Meyer was 100% "ready", they would have made room for him. The Twins field staff disagrees with all of you who proclaim that Meyer, or May for that matter, would...

    Wow. This is incredibly illuminating. Thanks for digging this up, jorgenswest. The scouting quality and the overall environment in 2014 is probably vastly superior compared to 2006/7, but still, it...

    A number of commenters have said he's ready. We as fans want to learn more about how ready he is, but it's just not within the realm of how it all works to think that the Twins, who have skilled...

    A huge happy note for me is that, when a SP goes down, which is an inevitability, we have palatable solutions: Johnson, Pino, May, Darnell, and Meyer have all made a case for themselves. Another is...

    Gordon hasn't even done his first load of laundry as a minor league ballplayer. He'll likely get everything he can handle in Etown and fall instructionals.
  12. This is a factual and fair-minded assessment.

    I've been hearing the argument repeatedly for years that Bill Smith gets direct credit for what he accomplished in the absence of Ryan. And also that Ryan is responsible for previous poor drafts with...

    This is an amazingly tough crowd! So Anderson didn't get Worley to make the adjustments. Maybe, but not certainly, Anderson missed "the" mechanical flaw that resulted in him stinking, consistently,...

    In my opinion, Chief, if more people took the proper ethical stance and complained about it, perhaps something gets accomplished.

    I would doubt that Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago combined have 5 prospects in the top 50. KC will likely be a force, but the future looks pretty bright in the division for the Twins.

    I don't know many wealthy people who look at the legal system like that, but when they do, it's inherently wrong. When, for example, stock traders find a way to front run others on trades, it's...

    I'd suggest that the fans may end up as the most aggrieved victims if a whole slew of the Yankee's new prospects pan out in a few years and the competitive balance fans so desperately want takes a...

    I would hope the reason you don't walk out with a turkey is because it's wrong. And the rule does NOT say you can overspend in exchange for a fee. It says you shall limit your spending, period. Then...

    I'm hoping you're not serious about this analogy. Paying for an upgrade is a benefit, and earned privilege. The rule we're discussing, contrary to a couple of expressed opinions here, states that...

    I respectfully disagree, diehard. The Yankees are breaking the rules because they're willing to incur the puny penalty. If the action cheats others, it's cheating.

    And the argument that we should...

    I'd suggest a couple of distinctions here. First, the "tax" is a penalty. Its intent is to deter cheaters. There is no law-breaking going on, unlike the jerk on the St. Croix. But this distinction is...
