  1. Leaving a starting rotation of whoever isn't injured from Ober, Maeda, Berrios and Pineda . Bullpen would be better with AAA retreads?
  2. Deadball was traditional. I could take it you mean play like it was still 1950 baseball. The traditional baseball of a different generation would be steroid enhanced players. Maybe traditional baseball is all white players
  3. About half the injuries were from running into walls. That is not bad luck, unless you consider having the traits that would cause someone to understand actions and consequences bad luck.....
  4. The problem is there isn't much for relievers in AAA to move the majors.
  5. Judging from how poor the results were compared to the league average for that year, the 1904 team may be the worse staff ever. The only redeeming thing about that staff is that potentially Highball Wilson was ahead of his time, He had high heat. The other notable thing is that Highball was frequently seen holding a glass that contained an amber liquid after a loss. That style of glass now bears his name, as by the end of the season he had built up quite the tolerance.
  6. The system is pretty devoid of Ryan prospects because they are in the major leagues or traded for current talent. But in the minors Balazovic and Thorpe are the two better pitching prospects are Ryan era.
  7. Did the trades the White Sox made for their starting players a few years ago set the franchise further back? Did trading Knoblauch set the Twins back?
  8. That would be a current top 10 contract. By the end of the contract maybe a top 30 contract. If he views himself as a top 10 pitcher, what the market will bear for a top flight pitcher is higher than that contract., See Bauer's contract.
  9. I do believe you hit about the right contract. What if Berrios is not a chea... err, user of foreign substance like others? 6/200 might not be enough. What if there is a fear that Berrios will get Mike Hampton disease? The next year of the contract they would wish they were less Berrios rather than Happ less.
  10. IDK, There are other contending teams in need of OF help. Padres, Giants, Cubs, Brewers, damn near any team not named The Dodgers. The cost in money to Buxton is low. Any contender would be happy to have Buxton
  11. It is fair to say that Buxton and Berrios want full market value for their services. The contracts that they get as free agents might be their only large payday. As for a role model for their desire to earn a big pile of money while they can, look no further than the ownership. The "they hate it here" statements are fantasies of a fan base that acts like a jilted lover.
  12. The article neither answers the question nor really gives enough information to draw a conclusion
  13. 18 games is really not much to judge on. Numbers look the same as career average in a lot of respects when he was with the Twins except for 2. His ERA is lower and BABIP is .217. Not to be a downer, but normalization is not kind After a player has been with a couple of organizations it seems to me pretty ridiculous to criticize the Twins for letting them go once they finally have success. I suppose some pitchers that got away with career WAR of 0 means nothing is better than Coloma, but in the long run, nothing is bullpen filler, not a career bad year.
