Twins Hitters, the Pitchers They Crush, and Beer in the Morning

This article is the byproduct of a little experiment I ran. You see, I don’t drink much these days, but the combination of strange times and available beer in the fridge led me to crack an a.m. beer.

Good times…now let’s talk about Twins hitters and the pitchers they’ve murdered!

Twins All-Decade Team, the '60s (The Hitters)

Over the coming weeks at Twins Daily, I will be digging into the history of the Minnesota Twins and presenting for you Twins teams of the decades. Tonight, we will start with my choices for the Hitters of the 1960s Twins. Tomorrow, I'll post the pitchers of that decade (five starters, five relievers).Finally, on Thursday night, I'll post a fun interview/podcast with someone who is very familiar with the Twins of the 1960s. Hopefully you are as interested in the Twins 60-year history and will discuss the players and the list.

I Ate Like the Minnesota Twins For a Day

5 Questions with Twins Pitcher Randy Dobnak

Randy Dobnak started a playoff game for the Twins last season at Yankee Stadium. With an improved pitching staff, Dobnak entered spring training knowing he’d be fighting for a spot in the rotation. Spring training got cut short, routines change, and Dobnak is still preparing to impact the 2020 Twins. Here are five questions with the Twins pitcher as he prepares for the upcoming season.

Will the Twins' Single-Season RBI Record Ever Be Broken?

Anytime you’re asked whether a sports record will ever fall, it’s a good idea to bet that it will. In this case, though, it’s a lot more complicated than that.

Now and Then: For the Minnesota Twins, Quality Coaches Matter

In 2019 the Minnesota Twins won 101 games and saw great success in part due to the quality coaches they had in the clubhouse. The 1965 season wasn't much different, as Billy Martin and Johnny Sain gave a great boost to that club as well.
