  2. Sunday's Twins Minor League Daily

    I hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day weekend! All of the affiliates were in action today and this evening, and the Twins lost a tough one to the Tigers.

    There was some roster news, if you haven't heard it: Erik Komatsu was designated for assignment, and Jeff Manship joined the Twins. Best of luck to Komatsu in his professional career, and to Manship, as well. Additionally, starting pitcher David Bromberg was promoted from the AA Rock Cats to AAA Rochester. Congratulations ...

    As an 8 year old, I couldn't understand why
    GM Andy MacPhail would trade away

    I recently surpassed it. A couple years ago, in fact. The average age of an ...

  4. Wednesday's Twins Minor League Daily

    It's time again for my recap of tonight's action in the Twins' farm system. The parent club couldn't pull out a win tonight, so let's see how the affiliates fared.

    The Rochester Red Wings were off tonight. They are in last place in the International League North, 9 games out of first place with a 16-26 record.

    New Britain 1, Binghamton 8
    Today's game was quite a test for the Rock Cats, facing top Mets pitching prospect Zack Wheeler. He routinely hits 97 with the ...

    One player you probably have heard of since he was 15 years old. Between the prodigious 500 foot home runs as a teenager, the eye black that could be mistaken for ...
  9. Strange Goings On In New Britain, Connecticut

    Is 2012 the last season that the Twins organization will
    call New Britain the home for their AA team?

    Something is amiss.

    Something doesn't feel quite right to this blogger.
  10. Wednesday's Twins Minor League Daily

    The Twins had a big victory tonight, 11-7, over the Tigers. Everyone except Erik Komatsu was involved in the hitting, and that's a great sign. It's tough not to be excited about Brian Dozier. True, it's a small sample size, but he has exceeded expectations so far, including a big 3-run home run early in tonight's game. But enough about the current Twins. Tonight's focus is about the Future Twins. All the minor league affiliates were in action tonight, and here's a recap of what transpired.
  11. Dave St. Peter Press Release: Twins "All In" on 2013 #1 Overall Draft Pick

    "Twins Fans. It's been a rough start to 2012. We here at the Minnesota Twins are especially disappointed by the way this season has gone, especially after having sat through ...

  13. Anatomy of a Rock Cats Loss: Beyond the Box Score

    [Originally published at Twins Fan From Afar]

    The Rock Cats lost big last night, 10-3, against the Reading Phillies. You can read a good re-cap of the game by Seth Stohs here at TwinsDaily, and here at the Rock Cats' website, but I thought I'd try to provide you with a few things that won't show up in the box score, which you can check out here.

  14. Wednesday Twins Minor League Daily

    The Twins lost again, 6-2 tonight. I had hope that they would win this series against the Angels, especially after impressive performances last night by Brian Dozier and Scott Diamond, but it was not to be. Josh Willingham, with a home run and a double, continues to swing the bat well, but with the offense mustering only 6 hits, the chances of victory were slim tonight.

    Here's a look at how the Twins' minor league affiliates fared Wednesday night.
