Nelson Cruz Reportedly Pitched Timberwolves' Guard Malik Beasley to Stay in Minnesota

The Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly re-signed shooting guard Malik Beasley Friday night to a four-year, $60 million dollar deal.

Minnesota’s Home Run Leaders for Each Alphabet Letter

The 2020 season marked the 60th anniversary of the Washington Senators being relocated to Minnesota to become the Twins.

The 2010s Twins and 1st Round Heartbreak

Sometimes it’s fun to look back into baseball’s past and consider alternate timelines. Drafts are often a different story, as for every team that hits on a superstar, it feels like four or five teams completely whiff. This was especially true for the Minnesota Twins in the early 2010s.

Fargo, Eh? A Case for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks

Last week the Twins announced that they would be parting ways with the Rochester Red Wings, their long-time Triple-A affiliate. And while there’s compelling speculation that the Twins will link arms with their friends across the river, we mustn't forget about the “world’s biggest small-town” nestled four hours (three and a half if you’re going seven over) west on the prairie. Fargo.

Is the Time Right to Trade Byron Buxton?

Last winter the Twins made a franchise altering trade by acquiring Kenta Maeda from the Dodgers. Maeda finished runner up in the AL Cy Young race after a dominating first season in a Twins uniform. On the heels of a season with less revenue, teams might have to get creative this winter to add impact players to the 2021 roster. So, does that mean the time is right to trade Byron Buxton?

And, much more. You'll enjoy this episode a lot!

The discussion was live on the Twins Daily social media platforms, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube pages.

Examining Torii Hunter’s Hall of Fame Resume

Ballots for the 2021 Hall of Fame are being mailed out this week to eligible voters. Last season, Derek Jeter and Larry Walker were elected, but this year’s ballot doesn’t have any locks like Jeter was a year ago. Three former Twins will make their first appearance on the ballot. While Michael Cuddyer and LaTroy Hawkins have little chance of being elected, Torii Hunter’s resume is a little more intriguing.
