    JB_Iowa is right on the standing issue, the union has the right to file grievances on behalf of Nix and Aiken, which is apparently what they've done.

    I know ARod got some votes. So, Dawson, Carlton, ARod (twice is my guess) ... how about Ichiro the year he set the hit record?

    I doubt it. He's sorta expensive, not overly good and lots of pitchers like him around. We got Brian Fuentes for Van Der Mil (sp) a few years back - he was maybe a top 30 prospect in our system at...

    Sweetspot wrote about this a few weeks ago - IIRC, he said the Twins could start by asking for Piscotty or Kaminsky (two of their top three prospects) and maybe go down a bit from there. I would...

    I do hope they trade Perkins for the reasons you mentioned but they won't. It would be hard to get back equal value.

    Rusney Castillo

    https://twitter.com/DarrenWolfson/status/491188831601700864

    Twins will be at Castillo's workout. Wolfson doesn't seem optimistic about our chances - it'll come down to money.

    I do think the Twins should be a lot more aggressive in getting international talent that falls outside of the international cap (Cuba and Japan, mostly). For whatever reason, they aren't. I don't...
