    The FO doesn't seem enthralled with him but I'd love to see Deibinson Romero called up for a while. He could slot in at DH if Morales is gone (which only happens if this recent surge continues for...

    When did the spending limits go into effect? 3 years ago? It would also be interesting to know how many the Twins signed and what their total outlay was in comparison to the other teams. How much...

    Should we send Hicks a link to a Fangraphs article about strikeouts being bad (for a hitter)? Perhaps about the relationship between LD%, BABIP and batting average? ;)

    I think there are a couple of factors that aren't being discussed and a few things being conflated in this discussion. First we should separate whether the Yankees should have gone all in from did...

    Always scary putting thoughts down permanently on such a volatile situation as the Twins 25 man roster. First a quick question, when was the last time a team moved 6+ players at the deadline? ...

    I think the Twins will move Deduno into the opening starting spot for 3 or 4 turns then re-evaluate. At that point Trevor May could be ready. Deduno hasn't pitched since last Friday. I think...

    Only in the Twins rotation could Deduno be classified as a "strike out machine". :roll:

    We'll see. It's a long season and we're still in spring training. As Kab said, there are many pitchers before that have had similar profiles that have fallen apart because they lose just a little...

    It depends on the timing. The Twins have a lot of pitchers looking for innings at AAA currently. Gibson, May, Gilmartin, Johnson, Darnell, Pat Dean, Hermsen and perhaps Meyer. If Pressly is moved...

    Out of curiosity, can they afford him in the long term? You have to think he'll get a Greinke/Verlander/Hernandez like deal.

    I kept growing until my low 20's. Left High School at 6'0. Ended at 6'4".

    Dozier: .234 Avg. 17% k-rate
    Gomez: .258 Avg. 23% k-rate. Played elite defense right off the bat.
    Hunter: .255 Avg. 17% k-rate.
    Cuddyer: .252 Avg. 20% k-rate.
    Hicks: .192 Avg. 27% k-rate.

    Of course last spring training he hit .370 with 6 doubles, a triple and four home runs. Spring training is the definition of SSS.

    I think we're agreeing here for the most part. I would just amend what you said slightly to, "His value is dependent upon the needs of the team." In the circumstance you describe, he has value as a...

    He always had value. People hated it last year because he has such a limited ceiling, which is what he showed last season. You can find those guys every off season so why guarantee someone 2 years?...

    I think he needs to go back to AAA. There were clearly things he couldn't handle last season and working on them in a lower stress environment surrounded by players working on similar issues and...

    Teams looking for a reliever at the deadline want players at the end of their contract. The teams can fill that need in the off season without giving up major prospects. This extension actually...

    By only looking at OPS you're obscuring his problems. Even after his "adjustment that carried through" he hit .219 with an OBP of .270. His strikeout rate was 25% while his walk rate was only 5.7%....

    No, he is not contractually guaranteed but for all intents and purposes he is a Twin for the next 2 or 3 years now.

    2014- Perkins is 31. Twins not competitive.
