Twins Minor League Report (7/18): Dobnak Dominant, Balazovic Bumpy

With the trade deadline looming, some of the team’s top prospects must wonder if they will have a new address in the next two weeks. No matter the organization, each player is still trying to reach their ultimate goal of being a big leaguer.

Over the next couple of weeks, Twins fans are going to be checking their phones and waiting for a notification. Did the club acquire a front-line starting pitcher?

Twins Trade Rumor Recap: Teams Pondering Selling

The rumor mill has been pretty dry lately, so Bob Nightengale’s recent story with trade talk rumors was a tall glass of water.

Series Preview: For Whom The Schedule Tolls

The first three-game losing streak of the Twins’ season sets them up for a four-game series against one of the hottest teams in baseball; the Oakland Athletics.

He did so while looking the part of a turtle and embracing the fact that chubby people can run. The legend of Willians Astudillo was born. Heading into 2019 this blogger preached caution and suggested that the sample size and underlying numbers provided reasons for pause.

Twins Game Recap (7/17): Mets Blow Out Twins, Complete Another Target Field Sweep

Things started out great for the Twins, who had the lead until the sixth inning, after yet another quality start by Martín Pérez. But terrible pitching by the bullpen and a horror show by the defense allowed the Mets to erupt late and complete the sweep of the Twins with a 14-4 blowout.
