Why do teams make joke picks later in the draft (Like Johnny Manziel in the 28th this year)?

Yes, obviously the odds of a player that low making the majors is obviously extremely low, but through a quick looksy, I counted 36 players drafted in the 28th round or lower who are on active...

Deolis Guerra's last AA start.

  7 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 12 K He's been remarkably solid since being promoted to AA. Maybe the Johan trade won't end up a complete disaster for the Twins...         a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a...

How well did Jason Kubel hit lefties pre-injury?

Did he struggle against lefties as mightily as he is now, when he was coming up in the minors? Or is this something that's developed after his knee injury in '04? Finding minor league splits is...

Getting way too excited over early-season minor league stats.

Ramon Santana. Twins SS prospect in Beloit (midwest league). He's a bit old for a league, but he is smokin' hot. He has never had an OPS over .720, this year it's 1.135 AVG G AB R H ...

Delmon Young is hitting .462 when ahead in the count.

Denard Span's power potential.

He hit 2 HRs today, and has more this season (9) then his first four seasons in the Twins organization combined (7). As far as I can recall, no one has EVER projected him developing much power. Is...

Biggest head-scratcher in your teams minor league system?

Who can you just not figure out? Who do you have no idea what their future holds?   Definitely Anthony Swarzak.   He went from a border-line elite prospect in 2007, to getting crushed at AA...

Why are so many people here down on Garza?

He's still just 23 years old, and he pitched great against the White Sox last night. But from reading through past diaries, it seems like a large percentage of the people here have soured on him.W...

Pat Neshek.

Last season he put up great numbers, but got hit around a bit by left-handed hitters. This year, however, he's been ever better against left-handed then right-handed hitters. Is there any reason to...

The amount of money free agents are getting this off-season is both sad and disgusting.

I have no problem with stars getting big contracts they've earned and deserve, but when mediocre players like Gil Meche, one-year wonders like Gary Matthews Jr., and one-tool players like Juan...

If Johan was a FA this year, how much money could he make?

With mediocre, 30+ year old players getting ridiculous contracts this off season, Johan would be capable of getting an astronomical amount of money.If he was a FA, had Boras as an agent, and would...
