How could the Twins let Cristian Guzman go?

Tell me about it!

According to the stats at Baseball Prospectus, Guzy is "worth" 11.2 runs BELOW replacement-level, making him the worst SS bat in the majors. And it's not even close. Seattle's Wilson Valdez at -5.8 is the next worst; and, hell, the M's knew going into the season that he was just a cheap stopgap to hold the spot until Jose Lopez is ready or Pokey Reese returns.

Meanwhile, Jason Bartlett's .244 EqA and 2.0 Runs Above Replacement-level after 6 weeks earned him a trip back to the minors. Now if only they would do the same to Rivas... Better yet, make a move that allows me to add Rivas to this tote board.

I just about exploded into a million pieces last year when the Yankees came to town and Jim Souhan wrote that the Twins had a difficult choice as to whether they should exercise their $5 million option on Guzman. Patrick Reusse was also trumpeting his play. I wrote back last September 20th that he was basically one of the worst hitting shortstops in the league and his defense (based on range factor and zone rating) was below average. All the talk that he was having a good year last year was just talk. No, make that stupid talk.

Now, he'd kill for last year's numbers and the Nationals must be wondering who slipped the LSD in their collective drink that caused them to think he was worth $17 million.

fright:

I did a Twins alumni trackdown for my blog the other day. BTW, thanks for linking my blog. I hope you had a chance to read it. If not, here's what I wrote.

Eric Milton: Some people here miss him. I have no idea why. He has been a disaster since he left the Twins. He did nothing in his one year stop at Philadelphia where he got hit hard. He signed a contract with the Reds and he has not done a great job over there so far. You really have to wonder if his best years are behind him because he is just not getting it done. I admit that I was not happy to see Eric go since I enjoyed watching him, but Terry Ryan was able to get couple of players in return. I think the Twins swipe the Phillies pretty good as they get a legitimate starter in Carlos Silva and a solid bench player in Nick Punto.

Latroy Hawkins: Good thing the Twins did not bring him back. I wasn't that upset to see him gone. He did not want to be here. I am convinced that he along with Eddie made up their mind in June that they were not coming back as they mouthed off about how they were never given extensions. I like to feel bad for Latroy, but I don't. It was fun to see him get rocked with the Cubs and then get traded. It couldn't happen to a punk like him. Twins were so loyal to him when he stunk for years with the Twins. He had two good years and he rewarded them by leaving the Twins and trashing them on his way out the door. Here's hoping he gets rocked when he comes to the Dome in a few weeks.

Eddie Guardado: Nice guy and he gets his saves. With that said, he is as much as a punk as Latroy. He made Twins fans bring up TUMS a lot just by watching him pitch. Joe Nathan has made me breathe easily unlike Eddie. Seattle fans know what's it like watching him pitch.

Kenny Rogers: He wasn't coming back. He was just a rental for one year. He did a good job for us and I am glad he is doing well in Texas. To his credit, he never said anything bad about the organization unlike Eddie and Latroy. He went on with his business. I am sure he wasn't happy about being bypassed for Kyle Lohse in the playoffs and I don't blame him to be honest. With that said, he managed to be a professional about it. Good to see him do well.

Cristian Guzman: He has been useless for the Nationals. He is solid defensively, but for the money he got from that team, you would think he would hit better. The thinking was that he would do well getting out of the Twins organization, but so far nothing going for him. I wonder what was the Nationals thinking even giving him that crazy offer. I do not miss him. Juan Castro has done more than Guzman has done with the Nationals.

Corey Koskie: He has been okay. Sure I am going to miss his defensive plays at third, but for the money he is making, I am glad he is not with the Twins. I think he was overpaid and he is capable of breaking down with injuries. Jays were better off letting Aaron Hil play for less money at the hot corner than say overpay for Koskie.

Brian Buchanan: He stinks. I have no idea where he is playing. Last I check he was with the Devil Rays. Never liked him. He was a free swinger and he struck out a lot. He is not missed. Heck I am suprised I remember him.

A.J.: After a rough year with the Giants, he reinvented himself with the White Sox. He seems to work well with pitchers and he has been a good leader allegedly. Still, I am waiting for him to eventually wear out his welcome in She-ca-go. I don't miss him though and the fact we got a lot for A.J. is huge. Let him do his damage with the White Sox. All I know is the Twins not only got a very good closer, but they got future studs for the starting rotation.

Doug Mientkiewicz: He still sucks. He is nothing more than a fielder and he will get a occasional hit. He is nothing special. The only thing about him is his mouth. I read the NY sports papers daily and I hear him mouth off a lot. He is great with quotes. It's too bad that he can't hit since I like his work ethic and etc. It's just that he is not good anymore. The NY media has been on his case for his lack of hitting and I know Mets fans are already growing impatient.

Casey Blake: He has made a name of himself for the Indians. He has done a good job with the bat. He has been a consistent hitter,

Dustan Mohr: Nothing to write home about.

Michael Restrovich: Can he stay in one organization for a month? Colorado and TB gave up on him after one week.

Rick Reed: Retirement

Matt Lawton: He hasn't done anything since he left the Twins. He signed that big contract with the Indians and he did nothing there. He was a dissapointment for the Mets as the Mets traded for him in 2001. That's too bad because he was pretty good when the Twins stunk.

David Ortiz: He has become a folk hero in Boston with him hitting well against the Yankees. He single-handily finds a way to beat NY. He is one guy that the Twins miss. With that said, he was not an effective hitter for the Twins and he constantly got hurt playing at the Dome.

Mark Redman: He has been okay, but he has been traded to lot of teams since leaving the Twins. Tigers, Marlins, and now the A's dumped him since they can't get the potential out of him. He is probably going to be mediocore forever.

SBG,

I agree that the Strib coverage of Guzy last August was some of the more inane analysis in recent memory. Guzy finished the season with a .244 EqA and 12.9 RARP, which rated him 19th amongst MLB Shortstops, 10th in the AL. (Again, Bartlett had a .247 EqA when they sent him down, supposedly to work on his swing.)

Of course, now all the Strib writers talk like Guzy was never better than just OK--which makes one wonder: did they ever believe their own hype, or where were they taking their orders?

leslie,

Yes, I have been checking your blog. I was going to leave a comment yesterday, but didn't feel in the mood to register a new user ID with AOL. Thanks for reminding me of Buck Buck. I'll have to go look him up and add him to my board....

I'm not willing to say that they were taking orders from the Twins, but there is a certain sportswriter over there who may have influenced things a little.

I read Souhan on the Packer game on Christmas Eve that the Vikes frittered away. His take? Wow, what an exciting game. Sounds like something Grandpa Sports wanted written.

On WCCO, they're always making fun of old Sid. That would be funny if he were actually cracking the whip on everybody's backsides behind closed doors.

Hey, how about Monkeywrench in New York?
