Span

21 posts in this topic

Just saw an interview with Denard Span. Very impressed! Still no sparkle in his eyes, but he seemed like a humble, hungry guy. Impressed with his personality, as well as his talent! His arm is decent, great instincts, great speed. He is here to stay(as long as he stays hungry). I should look up his stats... I think he is learning to hit LH pitchers too.

I agree. I really like Span and think he should keep the starting job in RF and leadoff.

Probably never happen why would you move Mauer who is the best defensive catcher in Baseball.

Answer YOU WOULDN'T!

It would be a huge step to go from AAA to fill in Mauers shoes!

Happy B-day!

They should try Cuddyer at third.

No they shouldn't. The Twins have been there, done that with Cuddyer. He's an outfielder for a reason.

They should put Mauer at 3rd.

That makes no sense at all. He's doing just fine behind the plate. Last I checked he was starting catcher in the all-star game. That's pretty good.

From what Gardy said when Cuddy comes back Span will be left right where he is in the top of the order. Cuddy will get his spot back because they need a right handed bat. I would guess that Gomez will likely be the one to lose playing time when Cuddy comes back.

I would suspect the outfield to look something like

Young in left, Span in Center, Cuddy in right with Gomez either going down to AAA or coming in off the bench.

You might be able to bench Young here and there and move Span to left and put Gomez in center.

Kubel should be the everyday DH right now. He is hitting a ton right now. If you look at his home runs per at bat he is better then Morneau right now. If Kubel was an everyday player with all the at bats that come with it he would be predicted to have 21 hr's by now.

I agree Kubel should be our everyday DH. The numbers speak for themselves.

I like what Kubel is doing right now but he can't hit lefty's.

Maybe having Young fill in at DH against LEfty's is another option!

Cuddy can play 1st once in a while to spell Justin also. We are much more versatile now.

It is great to have all these good options. Can't recall the last time the Twins had this much depth at so many positions. I've always been amazed at how many injuries there are given it is a non-contact sport. With all the injuries they have had this year, this depth has allowed them to stay in contention.

Anyone riding the bench will likely not have too wait to long to get more time in. Before too long another starter will get injured (hopefully not Mauer or Morneau), then the player drawing the short straw will be back to being a starter again.

We were ready to cut, I think it was Everett, then six hours later, Casilla gets injured, Everett is back on the roster playing in a game.

All the variety has been fun, because someone new is always contributing to help this team. Early last year seemed like most of the new guys stunk ... lets hope we don't have to relive those days.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
