Predicting Future Twins Aces

Predicting anything in baseball is a laughable pastime. The very foundation of the game is founded on the notion that “stuff happens” which leads to the chaos that makes the game so enjoyable to many. In this chaos, patterns of success occasionally emerge and are then repeated until they no longer prove to be useful. One of these patterns happens to include Luis Rijo, Jhoan Duran, and Chris Vallimont.

Five Best Signatures in Twins History

Whether signing baseball cards, inking checks, or simply checking in to a stadium, baseball players are constantly writing their name. Anyone even remotely connected to Twins Territory knows how important Harmon Killebrew thought legibility was, but who are some of the best to follow suit?

The Show Must Go On: Inauspicious Debuts

As our interactive simulated 2020 season eclipses the trade deadline and moves into August, we've pulled the trigger on two major deals to add starting pitching. Unfortunately, the new guys didn't make great first impressions, and the Twins now find themselves once again looking up at Cleveland in the standings.

Twins in the 2000s: The 2003 Season

Looking to deliver an encore after winning the division and narrowly missing the World Series in 2002, these Twins came out flat and flirted with self-sabotage by keeping their best pitcher relegated to the bullpen.

But a couple of key midseason moves helped right the ship as the Twins defended their title and settled in to reign over the AL Central.

How Will Managing Change in a Shortened Season?

Rocco Baldelli took home the AL Manager of the Year in his first year at the helm of the Minnesota Twins. Now, his managerial skills might be tested even more as Major League Baseball adjusts to a shortened season. Each game will be magnified. Each in-game decision will be scrutinized. So how will managing change in an 82-game season?

Who Would Be on the Twins' Extended Roster and Taxi Squad?

Baseball's latest plan to return features a number of alterations designed to accommodate a shortened schedule and circumstances that are beyond unusual. Part of this reshaped framework (per CBS Sports): 30-man active rosters with a 20-man taxi squad for reinforcements.

What might an expanded short-season roster look like for the Minnesota Twins?

Twins in the 2000s: The 2002 Season

The winningest manager in Twins history was replaced – and that wasn’t the big story. A feisty core of young players ended another team's decade-long dynasty in the division AND kicked off their own decade-long dominance – and that wasn’t the big story. The Twins made their longest playoff run of the last 28 years – and even that wasn’t the big story.

2002 was one helluva season.

Can the Minnesota Twins Piggy-back Their Way to a Great Rotation?

While the news that Rich Hill will likely be ready to start the season certainly qualifies as good news, at some point the Twins may run into a numbers problem, with more starters than rotation spots. Could piggy-backing starters be a good solution to a welcome problem?
