    Thanks for the optimistic post. I am a glass half full guy myself. Unfortunately, if I'd listed ten things than need to happen for the Twins to be competitive last year, I have to admit that only...

    Defining Breakout is to each their own

    I'll put my guys into categories.

    Most Likely to 2013 Pitching Draftee to Exceed Expectations:
    Koh...Stephen Consalves. Has a chip on his shoulder and will out-compete Stewart. Or at least hold...

    Cripes! Vargas for $48 or Nolasco for $52? No brainer.

    On another note, there is little greater irony than the difference between the comments on the two main TD headline stories right now. On...

    Re: Fryer
    I have a feeling the biggest shock to the system all of us armchair GM/stat-heads would have if we actually got a job as the Assistant to the Traveling Secretary a la George...

    Interesting group. I too hadn't really heard of Romero, despite the inordinate amount of time I spend here. Goodrum is a favorite of mine, hopefully due for a breakout...I remember he was one of...

    I also agree with goulik. Sign some veteran "winners" to help change the clubhouse culture and mentor the next wave.

    Just dreaming, but how about Tim Hudson, Juan Uribe, and Napoli? Plus...

    To use an analogy that's been proposed--my participation on this site is like being at a bar. I sit alone, "lurking" (hate that term), nurse my beer, and listen to the same bunch of guys debate the...

    I arrived here via Bill Simmons-Batgirl-Gleeman-Seth and the rest of the crew. Really enjoy the content. Thanks for the site. Now how about some AFL content already!!!

    Or...

    He struck a sewer line, crawled through a thousand feet of foulness, and came out clean on the other side.

    Or...

    he glared up at his boss and said, "I'm not digging. I'm prospecting".
    When he was 14 feet deep he unearthed a bunch of gold nuggets and one of the biggest diamonds ever found.

    And a...

    Rosario has been so "overlooked" that it's impossible not to notice him. He has basked in Sano's limelight (deservedly, IMO). Polanco was signed the same year as Sano and been truly overshadowed. ...

    The depressing reality is that this is just the way things work. The maligned drew Butera nets a promising young starter and a former MVP nets...Ryan netted a couple of lottery tickets for Justin,...

    Three run homers off of Verlander are good

    Just saying.

    Love these first hand articles. I wish the Twins would put their rookie team in Boise so I could do the same.

    Any observations on Polanco?

    Thank you for the well-written, detailed, and insightful post. This is what I come to Twinsdaily for--not the daily rants about Drew Butera of Kevin Correia that end up generating 200 comments. So...

    Fun stuff A.J. I hope in twenty years I am driving twenty-four hours to see my son play minor league baseball. How cool.

    Mike,
    hard to reconcile an organizational approach that seems to reward hard work and loyalty with Slama's career. Maybe it was timing and injuries. I just wish for him that he'd been given a better...

    I wasn't really a vocal "Free Slama" campaigner, but in hindsight I should've. Not saying the scouts are wrong and he was going to thrive, but anyone with his numbers+service time deserved an...

    I think the final piece, if the Twins are contending in 2016, will be a blockbuster trade for a Cliff Lee like ace, whomever that might be in three years. Proven veteran. Also maybe a risky but...

    Trying to think through Seth's list, but there are some other pitchers that could help as well. Duffy springs to mind.

    Plus all the great prospects the Twins get in return for Willingham,...

    Brothers:

    Please let this thread die and get back to filing your TPS reports, or you're going to have to come in on Saturday.

    Yours truly,
    your Boss. (Or your mom, upstairs)

    When you look at how he's yo-yoed the last couple years, along with the hand injury deal, which (I'm probably wrong on this) might have stemmed from him punching the wall in frustration, I feel like...
