Jeez, that whole article is just gross to read.
Bernadino reporting that Bartlett is retiring.
If they are both in the lineup anyway there is no reason Pinto can't catch every now and then with Suzuki DH'ing.
Yes, I know Suzuki is nowhere near an ideal DH, but like I said, if they are both...
Except there is no proof that LBJ ever said such a thing.
It is a attributed to a single person, Ronald Kessler, a right wing author, and has never been corroborated by anyone.
Well the Twins should probably play him at catcher then if we want to find that out. Right now he's on pace to catch 32 games, which isnt really going to be enough to tell us one way or the other.

If AB Walker struggles against breaking pitches and off speed pitches, wouldn't you want him to see MORE of those pitches (so he can improve), not less? That is what the minor leagues are for, to...
LOL "is nishioka betting against the twins?"
Calling Florimon a "below average" hitter is being pretty generous.
My thought is that I can't and never will know what its like to endure what Aaron had to deal with as a) a black man in the south in the 50's and 60's to begin with, and b) a black man in the south...
I believe what you are looking for is strand rate.
I guess I'd have to see an explanation of how our military is being "decimated".
Keep in mind this graph represents constant 2013 dollars, so even the post sequester purple levels are higher than...
If we can end up with something out of Wimmers that will be awesome, like found money just because of how long it's been since he's been relevant.

They do not vote for president, if you are talking about the President of the United States.

If you want to gnash your teeth over a meaningless roster maneuver, go right ahead. I don't care about either of them.

I'm quite sure that you determining that my opinion on a thread being not worthy of discussion is specifically against TD policy, as is talking down to me like your opinion is superior to mine.

Unless you have a crystal ball, you can't possibly know that.
Sulbaran doesn't matter, why, because he doesn't profile as a star? Winning teams need good role players too.
All it would take for...

Because the Twins didn't even try to get anything in return for a 28 year old with a positive career WAR, letting the first team on the waiver wire claim him, yet they don't mind giving up something...

Just because Sulbaran (or any prospect) may never pan out, doesn't mean they don't have value.
They are assets.
I guess I just don't see any reason to dump them at such a young age unless you are...
Who you got stepping up and winning today?
I'd love to see the kid do it, I'll be pulling for him.
But, as for who I think will do it, Matt Kuchar.

It's not uncommon for some people to have wildly differing opinions of prospects, especially when you get past the top 10 per organization.
I liked Sulbaran when they got him, and liked him even...
Yep, and that is why you need to be careful using the "eye test"! I should know better.
However, that said, there were a LOT of pitches that either touched the black, or missed by a tiny amount.
To be fair to Gibson, cmat is right when he says that the umps are squeezing him like (almost) nobody else.
According to this WSJ study late last season:...

What was he supposed to do to "earn it"?
If a 2.96 ERA and 3.5:1 K/BB ratio (as a 19 year old) were not enough to "earn" a job, then I'm not sure what more he was supposed to do?
