Minnesota no doubt views him as a 28-year-old lefty with the 3.68 <span class="statdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/glossary/index.php?search=ERA" onmouseover="doTooltip(event, jpfl_getStat('ERA'))" onmouseout="hideTip()">ERA</span></a> rather than taking a deeper dive into his peripherals Was this dig on the intelligence of the Twins really necessary Aaron?

Another Twins fan here, I will be bookmarking this article to bring it up to you in the next few years Matthew as you are proven wrong. I am not going to doubt the same front office that made the Twins into perennial contenders from 2001-2010, while dealing with the threat of contention and the lack of revenue due to the godawful Metrodome. <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/player_search.php?search_name=Bill+Smith">Bill Smith</a></span> managed to destroy the entire organizations talent depth in his few years as GM, and sure enough as soon as <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=78149">Terry Ryan</a></span> comes back the talent picks up again. I can see how since the Twins don't do things how the "it" teams do it, it can be seen as doing it wrong. But i'm going to disagree, I think a lot of the things the league is falling in love with lately are about to become overpriced and overrated and the Twins will come out looking very intelligent and well built.

Mauer seems to get the benefit of the doubt a lot of times at the plate, possibly due to his great eye or patience, so that probably contributed to the Weiters frame

I hope we get one of these where there is a runner at first at two outs, so we can see the reaction of the runner as he has to keep going back to first after every 3-2 pitch.

I keep reading these articles about framing and all that comes to mind is that wouldn't it be much easier to frame and gain strikes for a pitching staff with good command? I mean if you call for an inside fastball but it ends up 4 inches off the outside, there is no way you can frame it regardless of how well you frame. Were if you are catching a staff with good command that hits your glove time after time, you would have a lot more opportunities to gain some strikes.

Probably not a good sign that the Twins have three players that could fall into this catagory (Plouffe, Parmelee, Florimon), yet they are so hopeless they cant even make this list.

For Worley i think there is some sort of error, because his stats from 2010 at Reading all look normal and reasonable, but at the end of that line it says he is worth -4.4 WARP, which is fairly impossible for what the stat line itself shows. So I think that may be causing Pecota to be even more down on Worley causing the Twins to somehow look even worse.

I agree with omb, i'm not really a huge follower of prospects and really only know the very very top ones, so some of these rundowns, though well written, don't do much for me. So some other details about the player besides name and team would be great.

I may be completely wrong, but it seems to me when the Twins were actually doing well they had an incredibly amount of TOOTBLAN, and now they seem to rarely make those mistakes. I suppose it could be that with the awful pitching this year baserunners are just being far more cautious because their is no reason to get thrown out down 6 in the third inning.

I've been a huge Twins fan for years, and I just overly irrationally worked up when they succeed, but somehow I have managed to make sure I feel very little negativity when things don't go their way. That being said, when i'm not watching the Twins themselves I watch baseball a lot like you did with the Chris Archer v the Orioles game. I find that combining these two things makes me about as happy a fan as someone can be.

Let me continue a bit more. I realize in other sports like football, basketball, or hockey that chemistry could have a huge effect because everything in those sports depends on your teammates working with you and being on the same page on the field, whether it be passing, blocking, executing a zone defense. But in baseball it is a much more individual thing, batter v hitter.

 
Brock Dahlke

The thing i'm trying to figure out is how can "chemistry" or things like that make a human hit pitch or field a ball better to produce more wins? I'm not trying to say chemistry can't have an effect, but what is he trying to say is created by chemistry? A higher effort level? Better focus? Better preparation for the game?

The Twins team of Blyleven and Bremer is perfect for this state and team. The Twins have always been known to not be very up on statistical analysis and things of that nature, and Blyleven has no clue whatsoever on these things. Minnesotants TEND (not all, i know many twins fans on here that aren't) to be huge homers for their sports, making Bremer the perfect play by play guy, going nuts for any sort of success no matter how unimportant. Growing up listening to the radio is was always Herb Carneal and Jon Gordon, now that both of them are gone I can barely take myself to listen to the Twins on the radio. I can't say for sure if the new guys are bad or good I just don't like it being different

There is no way Dick Bremer can be called a moderate, I have heard him practically scream about a home run to get the twins within 8 before, and almost sounds like he is going to cry when an opponent hits one, he definitely needs to be called a homer if not a screamer

I don't understand why this "%of payroll to one player" thing is even a conversation. Say with the Minnesota Twins and people saying they will never compete with mauer's contract. Even if you subtract the 23 million from the payroll there is 77 million left, and as the rays have obviously shown and a few other teams, 77 million is more than enough to build an outstanding roster.

Just the easier ones? Perkins, Capps, Liriano, Morneau, Doumit, Plouffe. Some other possibilites. Mauer, Parmelee by a lot, Blackburn, Pavano, Valencia. Last years lost season really made some of the Twins players projections drop. Lots and lots of room for improvement. Just ridding themselves of all the organizational filler they had to use last year, and Nishioka can make a huge difference. Not to mention getting ANY contribution from either of the teams two best players Mauer or Morneau. Yes, if things go as awful as last year then 100 losses could again be in the discussion, but same could be said of many teams.

I refuse to accept that one season can completely derail an entire franchise, the fact that nearly everyone wants to say the Twins are done and over with 0! 0% chance of competing blows my mind. Do i see that the talent is falling and its a very incompetently ran franchise? yes. But until they have continued problems trying to compete you have to give them the benefit of the doubt.

As a twins fan I am disappointed at the decision to leave Slowey out of the rotation, not only because he is a better pitcher than options like Blackburn, but he is also fun to watch with how fast he works on the mound. Now we have to watch more Contrerasian antics on the mound from the likes of Scott Baker and Nick Blackburn.

OK, that is a fairly interesting list. Another thing I just thought of though would be, what is the longest such streak of starts in history without a start of at least 6 innings? Because I am assuming the numbers above are full season numbers, where it could obviously be possible for someone who started 25 games to have say a 16 game stretch of less than 6 innings.

I'm fairly sure that scout must be talking about a different Michael Cuddyer, because the one I watch every day is one of the best at getting himself out. Lots of bad at bats with chasing pitches and making weak contact. Very inconsistent.

It could be possible that in that Royals game they were actually using a radar gun, where normally on the GameDay app the data from pitch f/x is used, and i am fairly sure that has been proven to be very accurate. So I wouldn't necessarily doubt the data from Chapman since he has been in the majors since pitch f/x has gaged him at 103.

I completely agree Nathan. I try to watch a game in either the NFL or NHL but I can help but thinking that I could have saved a ton of time by just flipping a coin. The parity gives luck way to much power because each team appears almost exactly the same. If baseball were to become that menotonous it would be nearly impossible to watch over an entire 162 game schedule. Here's to wanting a lack of parity!

Hey Christina, Another great write up. I am just wondering why you think Brendan Harris will be getting the majority of the playing time at third for the Twins. He is known to barely be able to hit righties, so he seems like a player destined for platoonism, the short side at that. Punto and Harris end up being about the same offensively against righties and obviously Punto is the supirior defender so why wouldn't he start against righties?

Will, you say that "Baseball players have incredible vision that allows them to perform feats most of us simply cannot". I say that it may have more to do with how fast and how well a players brain interprets what his eyes are seeing into the motor skill of swinging the bat. I agree that players need to have very good vision to succeed, but its the brain that is the incredible part.

I would like to take a look at the ratings of a certain sporting event as some milestone or record is being approached. Like when a pitcher has a no hitter through 6 innings, a few years ago you would have had to be lucky enough to drop by mlb.com or some sports site at the right time to realize this event was taking place. But now with Twitter and Facebook updates more people will learn that it is taking place. I think it would be interesting to get the amount of viewers of a certain game from MLBAM to see how much the viewership increases when a historic event is close to taking place. And i'd gander a guess that in the last few years that increase in interest would be much larger than in the past.

I can't figure out how Jeter thinks that having the mindset that you will win the world series and if not it is a failure makes winning more enjoyable. If you win it then you wont be shocked or amazed which I think takes away from the great feeling of winning a championship. All I see is that it makes both winning and losing feel worse.

I have just been using the 4% argument to get all of my fellow twins fan off of the ledge today as most are freaking out. But yes I do agree with pretty much everything you said. This surely will hurt the twins because its quite obvious Nathan was a dominant reliever, but this will not hurt the team nearly to the degree stated in this article or thought of by most twins fans.

I'm kind of sick of hearing how tight the AL central will be. The team that won the division clearly upgraded this offseason while the rest of the division hasn't really upgraded themselves at all, mostly downgrading if anything. The Sox wont be able to hit, and Peavy isn't going to be the beast people think by moving to the AL. Detroit traded a career year of Jackson for a new unproven youngster in Scherzer, and they will only continue to get older at most positions, and they really look like they will have a weak bullpen. Will someone give me a good reason why the Twins won't run away with this division?

Here could be one possible explaination for the home and road teams bringing in close to the same ranking pitcher in the 8th inning. If down by two in the top of the 8th as the home team, the some home managers could be thinking that they have two innings to score runs so one more run isn't that big of a deal, while others think how you did, in that there are two more innings to score two runs so the third one would have large negative effects on the outcome. Then with the road managers some think that two runs is too big of a deficit already so they give up, while others believe that two runs can be had very easily so they bring in their best. So both home and road managers have clear ways of thinking to be both conservative and aggressive thus making the rankings of both the home and road relievers the same.

I do know that the Twins are above average baserunning, but with all the blunders that they do make, if they could limit them to a degree, then they could be an outstanding baserunning team. I watched them throughout the year, I am not basing this off of the few massive blunders made in the series with the Yankees. These mistakes happened consistently throughout the year, either from not paying attention, to being overaggresive, to just being too slow.

Even as a diehard Twins fan, I was beginning to get sick of all the "doing the small things right" bull crap. Every year there is one thing that the Twins end up doing well, however it never seems to be the same thing from year to year, but it has never been "playing small ball". So its my hope that these last few weeks will finally put that folly to rest, and hopefully people will see what we actually do well, like batting with runners in scoring position last year, to having 4 batters have incredible years this year to keep us afloat.

Bill Smith has only been in MN for 1 1/2 years. I don't think you can call him a RP-level killer. It was written during spring training that Gardenhire wanted to keep a "hustle" type player in Matt Tolbert who could have easily been another RP-level killer, but Bill Smith convinced him otherwise. I think you can blame Gardenhire more for the continued play of these type players, no Bill Smith. Granted if Smith continues to only sign players of this caliber then he may have a problem.

I am a Twins fan so I am extremely biased but I think there is a very good chance the White Sox fall completely off the table this year. The pitchers have been overworked for years, the position players are getting old, and they will have zero defensive stability. I think this is the year that everything blows up on Kenny and Ozzie. Too bad I think the Twins are going to struggle as well. Somehow when looking at this division I keep coming back to the Royals to win it, as jwillie said.

Team: Minnesota Twins Owner: Carl Pohlad School:Gonzaga (drop out) Why: Got started in banking during the great depression, after that he got into investing. This led to building a banking empire over several decades named Marquette Bank, which he then sold in 1992 to get his fortune.

I agree, if BP could pull this off I would never go back to any other fantasy site (and I\'d be willing to pay a good amount for the service).

I most definitely second that thought. Some longer article by Christina would be amazing.

Will, I would suggest putting all of your injury updates into one searchable location after they have been published. This way if heaven forbid I miss reading for a week I don\'t have to go through all of the articles to find an update on a play, I can just go and search for an update on a player.

Twins: Keep young core and starting rotation together and healthy. Solidify bullpen and add a power righthanded bat.

Yes, great idea Will. I have been looking for good hockey news and it would be great to continue to receive it from you.

Does anyone know what happened in those other series when a team collapsed. Everyone keeps asking how the rays are going to react to losing but never state how those other teams reacted.

Here is one Baseball Prospectus article about the subject. There are a few more in the library on the site. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=1343

The Twins are actually using the off day on monday to skip Glen Perkins in the rotation since he has been so awful lately. That makes the the Twins rotation against the Sox Baker, Blackburn, and Slowey.

If you have watched a single Twins game you would realize why they aren\'t rated very high at defense. Gomez and Mauer are really their only good defensive players.

Well then Mr. Mcentegart should\'ve made it a little more clear that he was making up that post. I have no idea what satire is.

It was released by Elias that the first interesting stat was made up, Beltre and Drew were actually the first two ever to do it on the same day.

So you are pretty sure both will contribute in the near future?

Hey Will, I have one open spot on my 5x5 Head to Head league, Who would be the better option for that spot, Takashi Saito or Phil Hughes, or Neither of them?
