    If Buxton could make 600 plate appearance he would likely be worth the money

    Worse than signing Nolasco, Pelf  or Kevin Correia? Worse than Tony Bautista? Tommy Herr ?  Worse than a lot of the first round draft picks.

    Trading for Segura isn’t my first choice, but calling it the worst idea you have seen is over the top and rude, don’t you think? Just because you can’t see a way to contending doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Did you predict a World Series championship in the winter of 86 and 90?

    Isn’t that the point? These are guys who haven’t blossomed in professional baseball who just might break out.

    The fatal flaw in the argument is Cobb’s durability. Not one single statistic means anything without being on the field

    old nurse got a reaction from Dman in Twins Prospects Certain To Be 40-Man Roster Adds   
    Enlow and Vallimont were the current FO's choices on players. They need to be in on a discussion of who to keep.  Even though Enlow might not pitch this season he might be worth the roster spot to some forlorn team. Vallimont was projectable as a middle rotation kind of guy before covid. There are enough rounds and enough bad teams to give him a look.

    old nurse got a reaction from Doctor Gast in Twins Hire New Hitting Coach David Popkins   
    Getting the respect of players is more about approach and the ability to explain in a manner that they would be receptive to. Some crochety old dude could fare worse with a communication gap and manners. 
    Amazing that Williams could hit without analytics? It was a different era, different style of play. Get over the bygone time.  There was a time when 90 mph on a fastball was considered fast. The world changes. 
    Who were the hitting coaches under the so called plan managers. The Twins hired a new hitting coach, not manager.  Apple meet orange.

    old nurse reacted to TheLeviathan in Minnesota Needs to Outbid for an Ace   
    We're back to using the word "ace" very loosely I see.  If people don't like their starters being pulled after 5 they're going to hate Robbie Ray.
    We need good, consistent pitchers.  Who cares how you slot them.

    In the cold cruel world of data you are correct. There is still the question in the individual completion of baseball does he bring that something that makes a team much better

    If you go out one more year you realize what a fluke 2015 was for Forsythe. The TD habit of only looking at the statistic that would “prove a point is still alive.
