DateQuestionAnswer
2012-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the Twins' organizational phobia against strikeout pitchers?
(PepeShady from St Paul)
On the whole, it doesn't help them. But they do a very good job of making the most of what they do, so I can't fault them on that account. I like guys like Brian Duensing, or going back farther, Brad Radke, but they always live on the edge between success and getting pummeled. It's a tough way to make a long career. (Mike Fast)
2012-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who among the other first timers got at least one vote?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
Vinny Castilla 6, Tim Salmon and Bill Mueller 5, Brad Radke 2, Javy Lopez and Eric Young 1. Wasted votes, all of them. (Jay Jaffe's Hall of Fame Special)
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)FYI, next couple of HOF classes are thin. Best candidates for 2011 are Bagwell, Raffy Palmeiro (zero shot), Kevin Brown, Al Leiter and Larry Walker. Best candidates for 2012 are Bernie Williams, Tim Salmon and....I dunno, Carl Everett? Rick Helling?
(El Angelo from elangelo@gmail.com)
The 2012 class is thinner than prison gruel. Honestly there aren't five guys among this lot who would get more than a single paragraph out of me in the JAWS series:

Edgardo Alfonzo, Pedro Astacio, David Bell, Jeromy Burnitz, Vinny Castilla, Scott Erickson, Carl Everett, Jeff Fassero, Alex S. Gonzalez, Danny Graves, Rick Helling, Dustin Hermanson, Jose Hernandez, Brian Jordan, Matt Lawton, Javy Lopez, Bill Mueller, Terry Mulholland, Jeff Nelson, Phil Nevin, Brad Radke, Joe Randa, Tim Salmon, Ruben Sierra, Jose Vizcaino, Bernie Williams, Eric Young (Jay Jaffe)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is this the offseason in which the Twins realize they have a promising core and act to keep & add to it, rather than letting pieces slip away and signing inept, decades-older replacement pieces? What would be the one best move for them to make this winter? Also, Wikipedia argues pretty convincingly that it IS the Jonestown incident, and not the Wolfe book, from whence the saying comes.
(Bill from Chicago)
If they do, it'll be a credit to Bill Smith that he does so, because the Twins do have a good group of premium talent that they're going to be able to control for several seasons into the future, and ideally they do a better job of leveraging that opportunity into some more meaningful October glory than they managed in the Terry Ryan years (and losing out on winning with Johan Santana and Brad Radke). The one best move? Adding a top-shelf hitter at a position where they have need, either at an outfield corner or perhaps third base. (Christina Kahrl)
