  1. Twins-Red Sox Reflections: Liriano's Strikes, Revere's Speed and Ray Chang's Head

    [Originally posted at Twins Fan From Afar]

    In the end, Francisco Liriano's pitching line yesterday looked fine on paper. He gave up no runs, walked one, and struck out two, in two innings. Still, though, even though this was his first start of the spring, I was left wanting a little bit more. The frustrating aspect of Liriano's outing, for me, was that 12 of his 25 pitches were ...
  2. Twins-Red Sox Updates 3/4/12

    Thanks to NESN, I'll be watching at least the first few innings today. Hopefully Liriano can show control and command. I'll update anything that seems worth mentioning.
  3. Positive Early Reports & Friday Links

    [Originally posted at Twins Fan From Afar]

    Whether the 2012 Twins can even be a .500 team largely rests on the ample shoulders of Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau. Let yourself think -- just for a second -- about how fun things could be if our 3-4 hitters were healthy and productive all season long. Thus far -- yes, I know players just showed up a week or so ago -- the early reports are positive. Justin Morneau took Francisco Liriano deep in batting practice, and hasn't had to sit out of ...
  4. Joel Zumaya and the Twins: Fool me Once, Shame on You; Fool me Twice, Shame on Me?

    [Originally posted at Twins Fan From Afar]

    The Twins are in a sort of interesting position when it comes to Joel Zumaya. Somewhat unsurprisingly, the firethrowing righty didn't make it past one of his first batting practice sessions last week, and now needs decide whether, at age 27, to retire and become a professional fisherman (apparently he is enough of a realist to understand that becoming a professional on Guitar Hero was not going to happen), or to opt for Tommy John surgery and ...
  5. Did Joe Mauer -- and Twins Fans -- Need His 2011 Season to Happen?

    [Originally posted at my blog, Twins Fan From Afar]

    It's often said that balance is necessary in order to understand the universe. How can you define "hot" without understanding "cold," contemplate "good" without a concept of "evil," or truly appreciate a nice Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon without having a few boxes of Franzia wine in your ...
  6. Breaking Minor League News: New Britain Rock Cats Have Been Sold

    [Originally posted at my blog, http://twinsfanfromafar.blogspot.com]

    There is breaking Twins-related minor league news this afternoon in Central Connecticut, where it has been announced that the New Britain Rock Cats, which had done very well in the community and in terms of attendance, under owners Bill Dowling (former attorney for George Steinbrenner) and Coleman ...

  7. Twinsdaily.com -- Early Review

    [Originally posted at my blog, http://twinsfanfromafar.blogspot.com]
    I have to admit that I was quite surprised this past week to read that Seth Stohs, Parker Hagerman, John Bonnes and Nick Nelson -- the premier Twins bloggers that provide great Twinscentric content for the Star Tribune, among other publications -- had decided to give up their individual blogs and join forces. As I write that sentence, it almost sounds like something out of a comic book written for Twins geeks! They are now ...
  8. Tsuyoshi Nishioka, Brian Dozier, Player Development and the Future

    This is also posted at my blog, http://twinsfanfromafar.blogspot.com

    Brian Dozier, Twins' shortstop of the future?

    I have advocated in the past my belief that the best place for Tsuyoshi Nishioka to start 2012 would be AA New Britain or ...
  9. One 2012 Postseason Award the Twins Can Win

    The way it seems right now, even with the optimism that accompanies Spring Training, it's tough to imagine the Twins hoisting the 2012 World Series trophy. In fact, I can't reasonably imagine the Twins having the AL Cy Young award winner on their pitching staff, or the AL MVP in their batting order. But there is one award that this team was built for: The Comeback Player of the Year.

    According to the criteria, the award is given to a player judged to have "re-emerged on the baseball field during a given season." ...
