  2. Wednesday's Twins Minor League Daily

    It was a veritable clash of the titans tonight, as the Twins took on the Royals. Without Joe Mauer and Denard Span in the lineup, the Twins were still able to plate some runs. As I publish tonight's TwinsDaily minor league report, the good guys are on top 4-2, so let's hope it stays that way!

    All of the affiliates were in action tonight, so let's see how they fared.

  4. Revisiting Jose Mijares

    
    Jose Mijares doesn't look much thinner in 2012,
    but he has been much more effective.

    [Originally published at Twins Fan From Afar]



    Since March, I have been providing Rock Cats content on this blog, whether it's game reports from contests I have attended, player stats, the latest on the potential change in affiliation, or recounts of events I have attended, like the pre-season welcome home dinner. I'm no expert on baseball -- or the Twins minor league system ...
  7. Wednesday's Twins Minor League Daily

    Sweet Lord, the Twins swept a series. Josh Willingham, Justin Morneau, Francisco Liriano. Those were all big names going into 2012, and they all had good performances at some point in this series. Bottom line: the Twins won 3 games in a row. Yes, it was against another bad team, and yes, there are still major problems with the Twins. But, as fans, isn't it nice to see a few wins grouped together, rather than many, many losses? I posted this earlier today at Twins Fan From Afar, but here's some food ...

  10. 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 ...

  11. That Certain Age

    As an 8 year old, I couldn't understand why

  12. 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.
