That's The Ticket: The Sano Show

Last year, the Baltimore Orioles charged to the American League Championship Series on the strength of power-hitting. They led the major league with 211 home runs during the regular season and bashed four more in a three-game sweep over Detroit in the ALDS.

The Orioles are once again hitting the ball out of the park frequently this year, but the Twins will counter with their own intimidating power bat: Miguel Sano makes his Target Field debut on Monday night.


Perkins An All Star, Dozier In Final Vote

According to several reports, Twins closer Glen Perkins has been selected to his third All Star Game. Meanwhile, KSTP's Joe Schmidt was first to report that Brian Dozier has been snubbed by Royals' manager Ned Yost and the American League. The All Star Game will be played in Cincinnati next Tuesday.


Gleeman & The Geek, Episode 202: Say Hello To Santana & Sano

Aaron and John talk about the Twins calling up Miguel Sano for his MLB debut, Ervin Santana joining the rotation after an 80-game suspension, demoting Trevor May to the bullpen instead of Mike Pelfrey or Tommy Milone, reviewing the St. Paul Saints' new ballpark, Alex Meyer's quick return to Triple-A, Jose Berrios and Jorge Polanco moving one step closer, and why singing on a podcast is generally a bad idea.

Twins Minor League Report (7/6): Kernels Pop Early For Series Win

The Minnesota Twins were unable to take the series on Sunday in Kansas City, falling 3-2 to the Royals in Ervin Santana’s season debut. He did more than they could have hoped for limiting the Royals to just two runs on three hits, while striking out eight. But Miguel Sano driving in another run and Aaron Hicks going yard weren’t enough to get him the victory.


Twins Daily & BFFs (Baseball, Food, Fireworks) Celebrate With The Saints

Twins Daily's "Saints and BFFs (Baseball, Food, & Fireworks)" July 3rd event was an enormously good time. Most of the 140+ guests showed up right about the time the ballpark opened at 5:30. We made our way through the brand new ballpark to a picnic area in left field for a buffet of hot dogs, brats, burgers, potato salad, dessert, etc hosted by the Saints and "Bill Murray" (who you can see posing with various MinnCentric writers below).


Game Thread: Twins v Orioles, 7/6 @ 7:10pm CT

Chris Parmelee and the Baltimore Orioles are the next victims on the Twins climb to the playoffs.

Yeah... that Chris Parmelee... That guy who used to be a struggling Twin and is now a somewhat turning it around Oriole.

Being a GM is hard... I'm sure there was a part of Terry Ryan who believed in Chris Parmelee but sometimes the player doesn't show it and roster space just can't be held any longer.

I always liked Parmelee... I thought he should have played more to see what he could do. Gardenhire must have felt differently because Parmelee was getting bench sores.

Here are some things to think about:


Midseason Top Prospects: 11-20

Over at Twins Daily, we have been counting down the Twins system's top prospects as part of our midseason update. This allows for players like recent first- round pick Tyler Jay to fit into the Twins overall prospect rankings. There is plenty of depth in the Twins system so there are some very good players outside the top 10 rankings.

Is Ervin Santana Really A Midseason Addition?

In just a few more days, the Minnesota Twins will be afforded the opportunity to see their $55 million free agent acquisition in action. After serving his performance-enhancing drug related suspension, Ervin Santana will rejoin the 25-man roster and the starting rotation for the Twins.


J.O. Berrios Continues The Climb

Going into the 2015 season, few Twins prospects brought more intrigue than Jose Berrios. The 2012 first-round pick (32nd overall), has flown through the minor leagues, and his sights were set even higher. Suggesting he wanted to make a splash in spring training, Berrios is now staring his final hurdle in the face.
