    Seth Stohs got a reaction from luckylager in Twins: Why We Should Say Goodbye to Mauer   
    It's not football. There is no restructuring of contracts. Yes, they will pay him $23 million for the next 3 seasons. (unless he retires and they do some buyout or something)
     
    Also, you essentially said that he has coasted since signing the contract... but remind me what he was hitting when he went down with the concussion?
     
    Also, you say he's essentially coased

    Good, fun update. In our Foorum, we've got a Hammond Happenings 2016 thread where you should link this to. 
     
    I enjoy reading all of this. Reusse is a good guy, but don't tell anyone...

    Gordon may be tailing off a bit simply because of the huge number of premier shortstops on the list.  Lots of time before it matters.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from James in Twins Tender Fien, And It's Not Fine   
    It's fine. Depth is good. The contract won't be big. It'll be fine for the 7th inning. Those young guys won't start the season with the team. He's had success in the past. He was hurt last year and late the year before.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from HitInAPinch in Weeding Through Molitor's Messages   
    I would say that what Molitor says regarding players is much, much more important for us to read than what St. Peter says. Molitor and Ryan and the front office are involved in these discussions. St. Peter likely gets briefed or maybe a few notes. But he'll have 0 input on player decisions. 
     
    St. Peter is good for information on stuff off the field. I don't mean that as a slight to him or anything, but as President, he's got a ton to worry about and has to (and should) leave all baseball decisions to the baseball people. 
     
    Also, realize that at the org meetings, they talk about everything. Every possible scenario. There's a lot of information.
     
    And also remember, what Molitor or anyone says publicly is only part of the story... you have to read beyond the quotes.
     
    Would Molitor want Torii Hunter back? Absolutely, no question about that. But that'll be on Hunter (to want to) and Ryan to be ok with the details.
     
    Could Buxton use more AAA time? I think that's quite reasonable.
     
    The Berrios thing... Molitor acknowledged that there was likely some business side to him not coming up. 1.) I don't think that was bout arbitration or free agency. 2.) I do think it was more about the 40 man roster. The Twins have proven over and over that, although they should think about arbitration and especially free agency timelines, they haven't. If they think someone is ready opening day, they'll go with it. So again, have to look past the quotes, to the history and to some common sense.
     
    Cotts - Sure, they'll probably evaluate a lot of lefty relievers who are free agents. They may even bring in a couple to compete... I'd be surprised if Cotts is back.
     
    Sano to the OF - I'll believe that when I see that. 
     
    Need OF depth - they know players will read this stuff... can't just tell them that things will be handed to them. Hicks had a good 6 weeks. Rosario doesn't walk. Arcia's situation. If it was me, I'd go Rosario, Buxton, Hicks in the OF, but there isn't anything certain about any of them. 
     
    Anyway, just some of my thoughts. I was glad to hear that SS is Escobar's job at this point.

    I think Escobar should be starting. Have most of the year, if not all year. He's playing 2 out of 3 at this point, and I"m fine with that because Nunez has played well too.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from DK in New Face, Old Gard(y): Twins Choose Tradition over Talent, Again   
    There appear to be two very separate points in this article...
     
    1.) Gardy and Molitor are the same, which you acknowledge later isn't actually true.
    2.) The Twins need an ace. That has nothing to do with the managerial situation.

    Thank you for writing! As someone who follows the Twins minor leagues and minor leaguers so closely, I've always wanted to learn Spanish better. Maybe listening to Oliva and Fernandez would help! 
     
    I hope you will continue to to post from time to time!
     
    The Twins are doing (and did) a lot of very good things environmentally, no question. Their green efforts have been awarded, and it's great to see them continue to do more.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from curt1965 in Gardy's Culture   
    Without even reading the above comments, a few things need to be said.
     
    1.) I'm fine with letting Gardy go after the season. 
    2.) That doesn't mean he's a bad manager, just that a change is needed.
    3.) How many more wins would the Twins have if there were another manager? I'll put the over/under at like 1, maybe.
    4.) "A lackadaisical manager like Gardy is going to produce a lackadaisical team like the Twins have been recently." Gardy is about the furthest thing from lackadaisical. He's got as much fire as any manager in baseball. No question about that.
    5.) "The managerial ineptitude is the only explanation for what we've seen the past 3 years." The only reason? That's the only answer for it, huh? Has nothing to do with the players that he's been given?He's not perfect, but he is not the reason for the losses.
    6.) "he made the playoffs often with players developed under Tom Kelly (Morneau, Mauer, Cuddyer, etc.)," Those three players were developed by Gardy, for what it's worth. 
    7.) "Paul Molitor has more leadership potential than Gardy." Based on?? You can't make a statement like this without backing it. Gardy's succeeded in the past. When has Molitor succeeded as a coach? (not that I don't think he can, but there's no proof of that) Also, Molitor is older than Gardy.
    8.) "Gardy has his buddies (Matt Lecroy, his bowling buddy, who we kept over Big Papi)" - Pretty sure that's not a manager's decision.9
    9.) "If he stays, then it shows that this is not about winning, it's about some secret agenda that we will never figure out." - Alrighty then...

    Like Paul said.. who cares about the money? It's spent. Can't take it back, and they would have done the same thing 4 years ago when they did it.
