Who Will Be Crowned Sire of Fort Myers?

The gang over at 1500 ESPN, along with other members of the Vikings media, made it a tradition to name a “Mr. Mankato” each year at training camp. The honor was designed to recognize the player who entered camp under the radar but emerged with an eye-opening performance. Well, I figured it would be fun to steal that bit and crown a “Sire of Fort Myers." Who are the top contenders?


Twins 2018 Position Analysis: First Base

Who is Minnesota's heir apparent at first base? The answer is unclear at this moment, but should come into focus by summer's end.

As Joe Mauer approaches the finish line of an historic contract and faces an uncertain future, the question is indeed a pertinent one.


Seth's Twins On Deck Podcast (Episode 9)

On Monday night, Seth was joined by three new guests on Episode 9 of his weekly Twins On Deck Podcast.

Leading off the show was Gophers junior shortstop Terrin Vavra. He was followed by Twins right-handed pitching prospect Randy Dobnak. The final guest was the Twins Scouting Director Sean Johnson.

The Difficult Dozier Decision

Brian Dozier has been part of some bad Minnesota Twins teams. However, Dozier has also been part of a rebuild that seems to be headed into a new era of Twins baseball. At season’s end, Dozier seems destined to hit the free agent market. Minnesota hasn’t approached him about a contract extension and Dozier is excited to see what free agency could bring for him and his family.

After this year’s free agent period, should Dozier be looking forward to the process? Are the Twins already prepared to move on from the Dozier era?


Twins 2018 Position Analysis: Catcher

In the coming weeks, leading up to the start of the regular season, we'll take an in-depth look at every position for the 2018 Twins, breaking down the strengths, weaknesses, depth, and outlook for each.

Today we kick off this new series by analyzing the catcher position, where Minnesota's reigning Minor League Player of the Year will be seeking to make a major impact.


Uncertainty Continues To Follow Sano

Questions have circled Miguel Sano throughout most of the off-season. Will he be suspended following assault allegations? Will he start the year on the DL after off-season surgery on his leg? Can he be an All-Star caliber slugger like fans saw in the first half of 2018? Many of those questions remain unanswered.

With a less than a month until Opening Day, Sano and the Twins are still uncertain about what the future will bring.


Free Agents Who Signed For Less Than The Qualifying Offer They Rejected

It's starting to sound like for the Twins to land one of top free agent pitchers still available, the player would need to accept a deal for less value than the qualifying offers he rejected. Believe it or not, this move is actually not unprecedented. Let’s take a look back at the times that this has happened.


Do You Need An Ace To Win The World Series?

Regardless of how good the rest of their roster is, can a team that lacks a true ace pitcher really win a World Series? Jamie Cameron and John Olson take sides and battle to the death! OK, not really, but the question did generate a great conversation. Make sure to add your take on the debate in the comments.

Three-Bagger: DH, Dozier And Destiny

March is underway and spring training is now in full swing. In fact, before we know it, the first round of camp cuts will already be upon us.

As we wrap up the first full week of exhibition games, here's a look at three key Minnesota Twins storylines.


Twins Fans Should Be Excited About Jorge Polanco

Jorge Polanco’s late-season surge was a huge reason why the Twins finished strong and outlasted the other contenders for the final AL Wild Card in 2017. But where did that sudden and impressive outburst come from and is there any hope of it continuing in 2018?


What's Next For Kennys Vargas?

Unless you have boycotted baseball news for the last several days, you are likely aware of the fact that the Minnesota Twins signed DH/1B Logan Morrison.

The Twins Geek reported that Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey told Morrison all along that Mauer was the first baseman and that Miguel Sano is his third baseman. He said that Logan Morrison would be the team’s primary DH. So, what might that mean for the likes of Robbie Grossman and Kennys Vargas? Let’s consider the options.
