But think of how many lively debates about framing we'd miss out on...

It's surprising how many people would at least consider the Fielder trade, thought I'd be in a tiny minority there.
It might be interesting to re-frame a Kinsler deal with the caveat that such a...

So when considering expensive upper-tier pitchers who are 30, we're told that Terry Ryan would be, in his own words, "very cautious". But when shopping for an affordable back of the rotation...

Molina all the way. Let's get a guy who's the best in the game at manipulating the grossly inconsistent umpire strike zones to give the Twins' developing pitchers an edge they don't deserve and that...

After three years of abject rotation failure, it's getting a little less likely to feel either excitement or frustration over possible FA starter signings.
So "Talks with Bronson Arroyo heating...

That, and Steinbach is coming back, right? Joe has caught most of the likely 2014 opening day pitchers, and I'm guessing Terry learned a thing or two in 1300+ games behind the plate
As for the...

The first part is incredibly accurate. Doesn't that buy some slack on the credibility of the second part?

Last year's visit to the solar system by Comet Bernier foretold the forthcoming Fryer Apocalypse.
Remember... drinking water, canned foods, batteries, and '87 and '91 playoff runs on DVD.

Not sure there's much cause for litigation here. The Twins have had a comprehensive, exhaustive acclimation/conditioning program in place over the past three seasons to minimize the danger and...
A day late but the thread is still up so I'll chip in my thanks as well.

If you asked 10 people on the street who the Dodgers gave up for Drew Butera, you'd get 3 'I dunno's, 2 'The Twins traded Drew Butera?'s, and 5 'Who's Drew Butera?'s.
First three google hits for AJ Pierzynski after his name:
A.J. Pierzynski most hated

A.J. Pierzynski fight
Almost anything the club does to take away playing time from...

At which point Mr. Nelson said that he would more or less tell a neurologist who cleared Mauer for catching duty to go stuff himself.
It probably makes perfect sense to Nick to think way despite...

Agreed. Puff piece can be construed to mean whitewashing or deliberately painting an overly rosy picture, but I don't think anyone was accusing Parker of that. It seemed to me that those comments...

Molitor has apparently told his second wife the same thing...
Here's a link to a revealing article about Molitor, and it offers some credible...
Yeah, missed the combo platter part about 2012-13 combined. Should have known better than to think that either Buster or tf34 would make a basic mistake like that.
And yes, the scratching of...
What about 80 at catcher and 80 mostly at DH with some 1st mixed in?
Gardenhire doesn't believe DH'ing is a day off. But even a man of Mauer's advancing years should be able to handle the...

Part of the problem is that the Twins front office continues to frequently act as if they have unusual ideas about what decade this actually is.
Still optimistic, though, and hoping that Terry...
His FIP and xFIP were well below 4, and his K rate is still hanging in there around 9.
Yes, his ERA+ was a very sub-standard 76, and AT&T Park and the SF fans both helped to inflate his value, but...

Really nice work on the managerial debuts by age, interesting stuff.
In the end, though, it's the Twins, so none of the normal rules apply. Gardenhire's return after 3 90-loss seasons is just shy...

The thread was already four pages long before I read it, and it was almost unbelievable that there were about twenty times more posts about the continued lack of a Spanish-speaking coach in the...
Since it happened in an ALCS, we'll almost certainly never know...

No offense to you or the Hockster, but it's pretty obvious the poster you were replying to was referring to treasured Twins franchise cornerstone Scottie Ullger...
