Do Hitters Fear Some Catchers?

Trevor Plouffe’s last few days have likely been a rollercoaster.

After a forearm injury sidelined him for the rest of the 2014 season with just a few games to go, he was initially told he would not require surgery for repair. A trip to the Mayo Clinic confirmed that he would indeed require surgery to fix the arm. Then the only manager he has known with the Twins was let go and he raced across town (running two red lights) only to give his support following Ron Gardenhire’s exit interview at Target Field.

That’s quite a lot going through his head. Another interesting thought going through his head lately was the effects of catcher framing.


Twins Top Prospects Part 4: 11-20 (Preliminary)

Last week, we post the first three parts of my preliminary Top 50 Twins prospects list by reviewing prospects 41-50, prospects 31-40 and prospects 21-30. Today, we’ll start to review my choices for the Top 20 Twins prospects with a look at the next ten prospects, 11-20. In many organizations, several from this group would be Top 10 guys.


Who Will Be The Next Twins Manager?

Late Monday morning, the news came out that the Minnesota Twins had fired manager Ron Gardenhire. Gardenhire has been offered a job in the organization, but he says that he wants to manage again and believes that he will.

So the next question naturally becomes; who will be the next manager of the Minnesota Twins?


Reflecting on the Ron Gardenhire Era

It's ironic when you consider his views on blogs and online coverage in general, but really, Ron Gardenhire was the one who first inspired me to start writing about the Twins.


Over at Vikings Journal

Twins Trade Targets

The Twins are closer than they seem. Santana, Vargas, Arcia, Sano and Buxton are going to lead this team somewhere. I see no reason why the Twins can't be aggressive this off-season and make it happen. If the Twins trade for an outfielder and a starting pitcher, the boost we would receive mid-summer with the arrival of Buxton and Sano could give them what they need to be a legitimate playoff contender. I have selected my top five trade candidates for both pitcher and outfielder. Obviously, some are more realistic than others.


Should the Twins Emulate the Royals?

On Friday night, the Kansas City Royals clinched a playoff spot for the first time in 29 years. It will be a short postseason appearance if they can't beat the Athletics on Tuesday, but finally KC has emerged from the void.

The Twins, now coming off their fourth straight "rebuilding year" where little progress was shown in the win/loss column, are becoming familiar with a dynamic that characterized the Royals throughout their lengthy drought: the moving goalpost. A finish line that inches further away as you race toward it.

Twins Top Prospects Part 3: 21-30 (Preliminary)

Earlier in the week, we started looking at my preliminary Top 50 Twins prospects list by reviewing prospects 41-50 and then prospects 31-40. Today, we’ll look at the next ten prospects, 21-30. This portion of the list includes several southpaws, a couple of hard-throwing bullpen arms and a couple hitters with potential.
