(Beaux from La)
|It depends on which definition of ace you're using. If we're employing the scouting definition (i.e. one of the best dozen or so starters in baseball) then Kohl Stewart has the most realistic chance of reaching that upside. If we're just talking Guy Who Starts on Opening Day then Alex Meyer (a probable no. 2 or 3 on the scouting scale) is a good bet in the short term. Terry Ryan upgraded his rotation this winter, but it's still mostly no. 4 types.
Lewis Thorpe also deserves a mention, though he was born in 1995 and that makes me uncomfortable. (R.J. Anderson)

(Jordan from MPLS)
|There are a lot of high-ceiling players coming up through the pipeline, so I could definitely see the Twins making a run at the division by, say, 2015, especially if the Tigers' bats begin to decline at that point. It will be interesting to see if Ryan can add to that stockpile by moving short-term assets like Josh Willingham over the next 16 months. (Daniel Rathman)|

(paulbellows from Calgary)
|I don't really think Terry Ryan is in danger, but Gardenhire could go at some point this season. Both guys got the dreaded vote of confidence from Jim Pohlad yesterday. The Twins need to try something different. They had the staff with the lowest strikeout rate and fastball velocity in the majors last season, and they've had it again this season. We know strikeouts and fastballs that break 90 are good things, but for some reason, the Twins don't seem to have come to the same realization. Maybe they'd be better off being run by someone who has. (Ben Lindbergh)|
