Postseason Review: Bullpen

The last two years, the Twins' bullpen has been incredibly stable. They've also been regarded as quite effective, especially when compared to the starting rotation. During the last leg of the season, the bullpen was neither effective nor efficient. I'm going to discuss the players who were on the club for most of the season.


AFL Interviews: Max Kepler and Taylor Rogers

The Salt River Rafters made the trip across to the west side of the Phoenix area to Surprise, Arizona, on Wednesday to take on the Surprise Saguaros and, prior to the game, Twins prospects Max Kepler and Taylor Rogers took the time to answer a few questions.


Twins Organizational Depth Chart: Catchers

In the last couple of weeks, we went around the infield looking at the Twins organizational depth. Today, we’ll take a look at the catchers from the big leagues to the rookie leagues, and even the Dominican Summer League.


AFL Interview: Jake Reed

Steve Buhr is in Arizona, taking in a couple of Fall League games. Be sure to follow him on twitter @JimCrikket.

A year ago, Jake Reed was beginning intrasquad workouts in Eugene, Oregon, as he prepared for his junior year at the University of Oregon. In the subsequent 12 months, the Twins' prospect has seen a lot of the U.S.A. while pitching for the Ducks, then the Twins Rookie level team in Elizabethton, Tennessee, followed by the Cedar Rapids Kernels, and a trip to Fort Myers for instructional league. Now, he's a member of the Salt River Rafters in the Arizona Fall League.


VIDEO: Dave St. Peter Answers Your Questions

Last week, we asked you to submit questions for Minnesota Twins President Dave St. Peter. Watch him answer those in the video below.


Prospects Parked

Byron Buxton goes by the nickname "Buck." I'm told it's a shortening of his last name, but at this point I'm wondering if it isn't more appropriately a shortening of the words "bad luck."

The tweet from William Boor, a reporter on scene at the Arizona Fall League on Monday, felt like some sort of cruel cosmic joke:

#Twins prospect Byron Buxton, MLB.coms top prospect, just left today's #AFL14 game with an injury. Looked like he hurt wrist diving for ball

It evoked a nauseating feeling that was all too familiar.


No Juice Podcast #27: Dave St. Peter

On this week's No Juice Podcast, Dan Anderson and Parker Hageman meet with Minnesota Twins President Dave St. Peter at Excelsior Brewing Company to discuss the state of the team and the outlook for 2015.

Listen below.


Hangout and Talk Twins, Episode 47

Although there hasn't been a lot going on in Twins Territory, Seth and Jeremy will find plenty to talk about Tuesday night at 9pm.

The search for a new manager appears to be coming to a close, so we'll recap the latest.

Byron Buxton left yesterday's AFL game - and possibly the league soon - after "jamming" his right middle finger. Buxton and Jake Reed were named to the Arizona Fall League's Fall Stars Game earlier in the day. That game takes place on Saturday night.

The Twins have also (slowly) started to make their off-season moves, so we'll talk about those too.


Twins Organizational Depth Chart: Middle Infield

For years, the Twins had a string of uncertainty in the middle infield. Since the days of Cristian Guzman and Luis Rivas, the Twins have not been able to develop a strong middle infield combination. The Twins appear to have a second baseman to build around and hope that they have found a shortstop for the next several years. How does the rest of the organization look in the middle infield?


Twins Minor League Report (AFL Week 3): Hits and Holds

The end of the third week in the Arizona Fall League marks the halfway point of the season, and at this juncture the Salt River Rafters, for whom the Twins prospects play, have clearly been the class of the league. They lead the East Division with a 12-4-1 record and are the only team with double-digit wins.


Gleeman & the Geek, Ep 168: Dreaming of Joe Maddon

Aaron and John talk about the Twins' three managerial finalists, the possibility of Joe Maddon entering the mix late, giving Aaron's money to listeners at Harrys.com, declining Jared Burton's option, Paul Molitor's path to replacing Ron Gardenhire, moving to a deluxe apartment in the sky, selling Kris Johnson to Japan, knowing your kids, Rick Anderson's future, the value of a great GM, and how NOT to parent at Liquor Lyle's.

Joe Maddon is Out in Tampa. Could Twins Get Him?

A compelling new twist was added to the Twins' managerial search on Friday, when it was announced that Rays skipper Joe Maddon has opted out of his contract in Tampa Bay, becoming a free agent.

Minnesota is the only club with a current opening. Will they take advantage of this unexpected opportunity and aggressively pursue the heralded longtime manager?
