  1. I'm with the Kumar crew, his medicals aside 19 strike outs is impressive. Plus they could use a good strong arm in the Rotation or Bull pen.
  2. I remember the Twins . I think it was against the Tigers Moving a player to play every position on the Field his last 2 were Catcher and Pitcher. as i remember we won the game.
  3. We played in the alley all of us were from the Same block. since are parents wouldn't let us go across the street. But we got to know each other and enjoy are summers.
  4. I think the Twins should look at any Starters and Relievers to keep the Show going in the right direction. Now as for Montas the twins have been in every story written about him so if he is available then go get him. But the need Relief help as well.
  5. I think the Twins need to Buy SP & RP there has been numerous articles about who is available, Now it time to find out. with additions you automatically have subtractions. So the idea of dumping players is not a problem unless you do something stupid but so far the Twins have done well with the Trades they have made.
  6. I can see Royce Lewis playing in the Outfield. or splitting time at SS, but either way unless he has a Major cool down they need to keep his bat in the lineup.
  7. if the Twins are going to give up any Decent prospects, then. I can see them going after Montas or Castillo. the other two seem like long shots or one season and Dispose
  8. If you're going by Position, then Earl Battey would be the first pic for the Twins, He was tough! and feared by baserunners. But if you are going by Batting Stats. Oliva carried 3 Batting titles. (Silver Slugger) his first was his Rookie Year. as far as Fielding because of the Atrocious conditions he worked under the was Twisting his Ankle and playing through it, as fa as Homeruns Oliva again leads the two.
  9. Twins Mount Rushmore 1961 to present; Killebrew , Carew, Oliva, Blyleven with Pucket coming up short because rushmore only had space for Four, Now I expect a lot of negative feed back but I was in the stands for the Twins first season and was lucky enough to see Carew steal home talk about beating a team mentally that did. I put Oliva ahead of Puckett my best friends son will be pissed because he is a Pucket Mania kinda guy. We me and him went to alot of games sat in Sec.107 to watch Kirby climb the wall and snatch homeruns and Victory back for his team. But all that being said I personally was never happier then Tony getting into the HOF.
  10. I think Gordon will have the Most Impact. on the Twins, He is an excellent player they the Twins need to settle on where he will fit once, he has his Place and gets Comfortable look out. Celestino was hit by nerves, it was to be expected he knew he was in Buxton's spot and could be removed at a Moment's notice. with everyone expecting Buxton like performance w/o getting to know about him and how he does the things he does. it should be expected.

    My Twins HOF vote

    What about Al Worthington . He came from Washington when they moved here and became the Twins. at the Time they didn't have Saves. But he came into a lot of games and Saved the day. for him to be over looked is a Disgrace. Lyman Bostock wasn't here very long before going to Boston. they should be pushing for him. and Jim Mudcap Grant is a Travesty.
  12. I personally like looking at he SS position more then the pitchers. theres a reason they are unprotected. Plus if you do not keep them on your 40 man roster they go back to their Original team.
  13. Really think about it. every year the team has a lot of injuries in the outfield. they need a Cheap player to take up some of the missed games. as for last years struggles who do you see out there that won't have some of the same struggles.
  15. PtC Who cares does he allow a lot of HRs does he allow a lot of Base Runners. Those are things to worry about when you are talking 20 + million a year. everything else is too much crap to sift through.
  16. It seems to me Oliva should have been in already as for Kaat what reason an they give to keep him out. I think it comes down to being with the Twins if either of them had been on an East Coast team they would have been shoe ins. But come from Minnesota and the Nit Pick.
  17. I like Stroman. But agree with another that the best place for the Twins to get Starting Pitching help is thru trading. Since the Twins look like they could lose Buxton it would make sense to look their first and the also need Relief pitching the Minors old a lot of arms to help fill the void.
  18. I think either Graveman or Knebel would make excellent addition to the Twins. Now if were going by Price then Graveman would be the Cheapest.
  19. I like others feel Bradley s too much of a Risk. As for Knebel I don't see the Dodgers giving up on him but they have a lot of People to sign he could slip from them. I'm for either of the other 2 But Bradley can stay or go some where else.
  20. I Think adding all three is the only way to go. They need to keep their farm system restocked. and coming next year they will be dipping into that pool Heavily. Depending on how Negotiations go with Buxton they could need a lot of Help!
  21. I was Real Young when the twins came to Town until then not much exposure. But my mom and Grandma listen to the radio, then my brother-in-law took me to Twins games I sat on the third base side by myself while he and my cousins husband went to the Clubhouse or whatever they called the bar. But I got to watch Killebrew,Oliva,Bob Allison , Zoilo and others come out Pitch and Hit. it was exciting, I was also there for Rod Carew's first game. in the end I took his son to see the Twins just like he had me. and now the same son takes his 2 sons to the games. We used to see what give a ways they had and go on those Days but we went when they were going against a good team. at the time Kirby Pucket was young and catching everything in Center Field. We got to watch them in the World Series beat the Atlanta Braves, & the St. Louis Cardinals.
  22. They said in the Article that his Defense was very good, his Offense was what was needed work and except for the Quarantine he might have been in St. Paul this year. Personally, I think the Twins could do with some young talent in the infield and bring Royce Lewis up to strengthen the Outfield.
