Twins 2020 Position Analysis: Relief Pitcher

Last year when I previewed this unit, a lack of proven depth was the overarching story. Today, we'll be unpacking a 180-degree turnaround.

The emergence of Minnesota's bullpen as a top-tier group was one of the 2019 season's most astonishing, and promising, developments.


Episode 15: Get to Know the 1960s Twins (with Dave Mona)

This week, I have shared my choices for a Minnesota Twins All Decade Team, starting with the Hitters and then the Pitchers. To continue the discussion of the 1960s Twins, I was fortunate to spend about a little over an hour chatting with WCCOs Dave Mona about the players from the 1960s team. He was a Twins beat writer in 1968 and 1969.


Which Twins Prospect Is The Most Indispensable?

One of the pastimes that is most celebrated in the baseball community is the ranking of prospects. Beyond producing more online bickering content, these lists provide a useful way to compare the quality of prospects across each team’s system. But there might be a different way we should be valuing the prospects in a single franchise.


Season 2020, Ep. 1: The One When the Season Started on March 26th

If the season had started as scheduled, the Twins would have wrapped up their fourth series of the year today, April 9th. A week prior, fans from across the world would have gathered hours early at Target Field for the quarter-zip giveaway and raised a hot dog in unison for the home team.


Twins Flashback: Gladden Caps off 3-Run Rally in the 9th to Complete Opening-Series Sweep of A's (4/9/1987)

Metrodome Magic was on full display today, as Dan Gladden’s walk-off single finished off a 3-run comeback for the Twins in the 9th inning to complete an opening-series sweep of the Oakland Athletics. The Twins are now off to a 3-0 start, their best start to a season since 1973.


Twins Greatest One Hit Wonders

While we don’t presently have baseball, this sport is one of previous analysis anyways. Without the opportunity to dissect the action currently taking place, it seemed there may be no better time to look back. Some guys are great, and others are great sometimes. Here’s a look at some of the greatest outlier seasons in recent Twins history.


Why an "Adopt A Minor Leaguer" Twitter Account is Completely Necessary - Part 2

Last week I introduced you to the issues minor league baseball (MiLB) players are having earning a livable wage. This week I will provide a couple solutions to the issue that will provide players with a livable, not exuberant, wage. It will be helpful to read last week's article first.


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

Last night, I posted my choices for the Twins Hitters of the Decade for the 1960s. Today, I am sharing my choices for the Twins Pitchers of the Decade for that 1960s. While not as impressive as the hitter list, this group does show the depth of solid pitchers that were on the Twins roster in the 1960s. Please leave your comments.


What's Max Kepler's Next Step?

In 2019, Kepler appeared to be having a monster breakout, before an injury marred his final several weeks. However, there might be more to that regression than sheer health problems.


5 Questions with Twins President Dave St. Peter

There have only been four presidents in the history of the Twins and Dave St. Peter has served in the role since 2002. He has been part of the Twins organization since 1990 and he has worked his way up from intern all the way to the club’s highest position. Minnesota has won seven American League Central Division championships.


Remembering the Exciting 2015 Twins Season

Remember in 2015 when the Twins were mysteriously good despite having no business actually being a good team? Torii Hunter was dancing in the clubhouse, and the rotation had Hughes, Milone, Gibson, and Pelfrey leading the way. Let’s revisit that odd season.


Twins Flashback: Gladden Puts On a Show For The Twins’ First Defending Champs Home Opener (4/8/1988)

Over 53,000 fans packed Metrodome on a Friday night to welcome, for the first time in Minnesota’s history, their very own World Series champions. Left fielder Dan Gladden put on a career game, helping the Twins to get their first win of the season, beating the Blue Jays 6-3.
