Get Buck in Here – Moving Time?

Your 2019 Minnesota Twins are off to a solid start. As of this writing they are in sole possession of the AL Central lead and own the third best record in all of baseball. Rocco Baldelli has this lineup firing on all cylinders, and one of the most intriguing pieces is the emergence of the long-awaited Byron Buxton. Nineteen games in, we’re left wondering if a jump in the order might make some sense?

Twins Minor League Report (4/21): Pensacola Pounds Out 12 Hits

Minnesota completed a sweep of the Orioles on Sunday afternoon. It was quite the series for the Twins as the club does their best to take care of some of the rebuilding clubs in the American League. Minnesota will get to see Baltimore again next weekend, but first they need to put on their big-boy pants and face the Astros.

There was only one game in the Twins farm system on Sunday. Was Pensacola able to make a clean sweep for the organization?

MIN 4, BAL 3: Gibby Good, Hildy Holds, Rogers Saves the Sweep

Kyle Gibson delivered his first quality start of the year, Trevor Hildenberger stranded two more inherited runners and Taylor Rogers worked around an error to pick up his third save of the season as the Twins finished off a sweep at Baltimore. The O's nearly scored the game-tying run in the bottom of the ninth, but Eddie Rosario made an excellent play to cut down a ball and relay it into the infield.

Dave St. Peter on Expectations, Attendance and Concessions

It has been nine years since the Minnesota Twins have won the American League Central division, only making one playoff appearance in that time. The team has changed from top to bottom over the last few years. Familiar faces like Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer are long gone. Mauer was always a draw for people to go to games. What do the Twins do now to put fans' butts in the seats of Target Field..? Make the fan experience the best that it can be.

Super Rosario Stars as Twins Sweep Doubleheader

Pitch Framing: A Sabermetric-Based Analysis of Twins Play-By-Play Broadcaster Dick Bremer

Over the past decade, pitch framing has become a hot topic, not only in how we've begun to identify its value, but also in finding methods to quantify it, and coming to grips with its influence on the game. However, I contend that our focus has been far too narrow, and we must look beyond the catcher — in fact, past the backstop, into the stands, up to the media boxes, and directly at the role of play-by-play broadcaster. How the game's on-camera talent describe the action shapes our measurement of every pitch, even when most telecasts have live strike zone graphics present.
