    What to do with Dinkleman?

    Do we create a bench spot for the guys? Do we send him down again?

    He hit .300 last year at the major league level. He has hit over .300 so far this spring. Now he has a home run. Nobody talks about the guy, but he just keeps getting hits.

    Screw the third catcher spot and bring Dinkleman with on opening day.

    Last year, the Pohlads made 16 million dollars profit on the team and the year before they made 27million. Last year the Twins sold more tickets then 26 other teams. That is why some of the fans expect a little more this year.

    The Dinkleman Machine delivers off Daniel McCutchen

    2 run single. 2nd hit for him this inning. 9-1

    Twins subs and kids wiping out the Pirates. The Twins starters should try to live up to this

    I don't really think this is the place to have a payroll discussion, but since it has already started..

    What you're saying is even though they made less profit last year, you think they should spend more? What about the fact that ticket sales were high because people expected them to be good at the beginning of the season, where as this year, no one expects them to be very good?
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Couldn't agree more. I'm getting tired of the internet tough/smart guys who think they have a right to tell the Pohlads how to spend their money. If any of you guys want to see the Twins spend freely, my advice would be to figure out how to make a billion+ dollars, buy the Twins, and then go crazy.

    I didn't know that MLB teams shared their books publicly. If this is from a source, can you include a link/reference? If this is a calculation/inference from payroll/ticket sales or other generally available figures, please show your work.

    Cap'n Piranah,

    I'm getting sick of all these people who just accept everything the Twins do and think it's the greatest thing since life's bread. Think for yourself. Oh and by the way what would happen if this was NY, LA. Boston, or Phily? Maybe you should befriend Dick Bremer because you think alike, you talk alike, ect, ect, ect.......
