    We pretty much need four outfielders on this team. Two have to be able to play centerfield. Doesn't leave much other than Mastro and Hicks. The thought of Clete being counted on to put the bat on...

    I think we'll be loaded in the outfield and Willingham should be traded at the deadline for more solid pitching prospects and possibly a SS.

    Exactly as I see it. His fastball barely breaks 90. No significant breaking pitch, hardly major league stuff. Guys with marginal stuff need to throw the right pitches at the right times and Mauer...

    Very interesting. Seems the Twins are pretty aggressive on these acquiring these players (which they should be). Sano was a pretty nice get. If he ends up as a second baseman, that'd be just fine...

    If my memory serves me correctly, major league baseball is played in the summertime. I also think players aren't required to live in Minnesota even...

    Maybe that Wild Thing's killer Z bordered Buzz cut will do the trick.

    It'd be interesting to see how the type of pitcher fairs. It seems to me that umpires have trouble calling strikes with curve balls. They tend to look like high sliders but end up nearly in the...

    His range was a problem last year. He solve his throwing woes which seemed isolated to playing SS. The more he plays at third, the more he'll learn to anticipate where the ball will end up. He's...

    I see him as Joe Crede numbers, lots of homeruns but .250-260 BA. More important is him to learn to field the hot corner like Crede.

    Worry for me is his plate discipline. If he can show that he can lay off the low and outside slider and the high fastball in spring training, then maybe he's ready.

    We can't contend for a championship until the core group is close to their prime years. Interesting and fun is one thing but ultimately, Sano, Rosario, Meyer, May, Gibson, Nate Roberts, Levi...

    Always felt Mauer was a prototypical #2 hitter. Great bat control, hits to all fields but maybe a bit too often to left. I would be concerned about his propensity to hitting into double plays. Am...

    I don't understand, the ability to keep a player for an additional year before they hit free agency seems to be a fan friendly maneuver. I know I would have loved to have Santana one more year. ...

    I wonder how many losses a bad catcher can cause. Can't help but think about the sorry state of Matthew LeCroy's catching or throwing ineptitude. If every single becomes a triple or double, it...

    I think Correia is looking more and more like money out the window. I hope I'm wrong but my inkling is that he will be another Marquis. I expect he is DFA's by June. I expect Hendriks to get a...

    Not to have fun at someone elses expense, but you've got to love a team overspend on old talent and now pay for it by hanging on to a back end of the rotation guy and pay him ace money. We still...

    Three year deal for Saunders shouldn't be a deal breaker. He's been a consistently solid starter, as everyone has pointed out, been of the Twins mold. Doesn't walk guys, should be a inning eater...

    Wouldn't mind them signing DeRosa. I'm thinking he'll be a late signing and probably on a minor league deal with a Spring training invite and courtesy release if he doesn't head north. I think...

    I like Rosario. Tight one though, could have just as easily been Arcia but Rosario as a second baseman could be a real stud power hitter from a classically weak hitting position.
