Peanuts from Heaven

Welcome to our Twins blog. We'll bring up some "facts" and "stats", from time to time, but our real strength lies in sarcasm, silliness and Yankee-baiting.

  1. Adopt a Prospect Vol 2.4: Enjoy the Little Things, Like Pizza Stop Pizza

    (Disclaimer: since this seminar is designed for Luis Perdomo, Peanuts From Heaven shall not be held responsible for any injury--either physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual--incurred by any person who adopts seminar lessons as their own. We do however take complete credit for any improvement--either physical, mental, emotional or spiritual...and especially financial--of the life of any person who adopts seminar lessons as their own)

  2. Wha' Happened #10 ("Best" Games)

    There's a fuller write up "recapping" the last week plus in Twins Territory at our main blog, but here are a few key samplings from each series

    Game 76
    Marlins 5 - Twins 3
    The Twins have a good deal of early success against Miami's starter in the first inning, they run into trouble against Kevin "Killthrow" Slowey, who savored the opportunity to best the team that let him go. Elsewhere "Dr. Cakeburn"Nick Blackburn, and Boof Bonser plotted their ...
  3. Beautiful Games: Why Baseball and Soccer Go Hand-in-Foot

    On Friday Mrs. Peanut and I will go to England/Scotland on vacation, this means there will be very few PFH blogs coming out (I have a few scheduled to drop in absentia), but in preparation for that and as fine example of laziness time-management, I'm using a blog from another site: The Montanan Hooligans' World Cup Center since it relates to why I love baseball. If what I write makes you even slightly curious about more soccer writing, feel free to check that out...and know that while baseball might ...

  4. Wha' Happened #9 (GAME OF THE WEEK)

    Rather than continually reposting the same stuff here as on my other website--and since these recaps are often (week[s]) late--I'm going to trim down these posts to more manageable bite size single best game write ups I've got, and trust that if you want to read more you will find it at THIS WEBSITE!

    Game 69
    Twins 7 - White Sox 5
    The Twins do not care for power hitting. It hurts the feelings of our opponents after all, and we can't have that.


    But we're ...

  5. Those Damn Yankees: Dealing with Fans

    This post (and a wealth of other goofy ones like it) is available at our independent website: Peanuts From Heaven Inc.




    Most people have a "Yankees fans stink" story.


    Back at the Metrodome, my wife and her father sat in front of three "woo-girls" from Iowa, so desperate for Derek Jeter's attention that they squealed and shouted "pretty ...
  6. Wha Happened? #8 (@ Kansas City, Washington; V.s. Philadelphia and Detroit)

    Look out ladies!
    Game 57
    Twins 3 - Royals 0
    Right after we honored him as Mr. Peanut for the past two weeks, Ryan Doumit kept it going all Magic Mike Style, bringing sexy back as only he can.

    ...
  7. Adopt a Prospect Volume 2.3: Dange-atunity!

    It's time for Lesson Number 3 in our off-brand self-help seminar: Derestraining a Force Inside You. (If you want to read lessons 1 & 2 follow the links back to our original blogs...we'll even waive the $79.99 charge plus parking fees!) A series of motivational messages directed specifically at Twins AAA reliever Luis Perdomo.


    Remember this word Luis!

    What's that? You don't speak Mandarin? Oh...well if you did you'd be really impressed. You see, that's ...
  8. Numbers don't Count: Draft Analysis in 5 words or less

    It's that time once again, every year we "analyze" the Twins drafting decisions by summarizing the strengths and weaknesses of players. Rather than do that with any depth, direction or purpose (which is soooooo not our style), we rapidly blurt out 5 words and pass them off as "analysis" or "humorous"..hopefully you agree (and appreciate my endless attempts to reinvigorate the cliched "never give up on lefties)

    Thanks to the many fine folks at Twins ...

  9. Brothers

    I made plans for this weekend. I bought tickets to the Twins and the Nationals on Saturday, three of them. One for me, one for my older brother, and one for my eldest niece (2 years and 8 months as of Monday). I flew out right after giving students their last exam, and--with essays to grade on my tray table--got quietly more and more excited about the prospect of baseball with my family.


    This morning I went with said niece and my brother to the Air and Space Museum, enjoying ...

  10. Wha Happened? #7 (Red Sox, Braves, Tigers, Brewers, Brewers, Mariners)

    There was agony during the last two weeks of Twins baseball (including 7 straight losses to run a losing streak to 10) and ecstasy (including winning 6 of their last 7). The season continues tonight in Kansas City, but before you see that game, let's review what happened in the last few weeks.
    Game 40
    Red Sox 3 - Twins 2
    Remember about a month ago, when we went into Boston and dominated the Red Sox to win 3 of 4? Turns out they didn't like that very much. And brought a rather curt ...
  11. Adopt a Prospect Volume 2.2: De-Restraining the Force Inside

    It's a frickin' monsoon out there little rainy today, and rather than stare hopefully at the FSN rain delay, hoping that the game restarts and the Twins suddenly remember the good ol' days of two weeks ago when they could crush the Red Sox as easily as a twig under a space ship, we decided to revisit our old pal Luis Perdomo!


    Then we saw the statistics and remembered that Luis needs a motivation coach. So it's high time for lesson number two:


    (This instruction ...
  12. Wha Happened? #6 (Indians, Red Sox, Orioles and White Sox)

    Rumors of our demise our greatly exaggerated. Rumors of the school year ending, our student teacher leaving and our work load increasing dramatically are absolutely accurate. Here now, a pseudo-recap of the weeks since the Twins last got a day off.
    Game 27

    Indians 7 - Twins 6
    Long ago I first wrote about the magical Land of Cleve, a blighted kingdom where no team can win for long and where all the knights in the land eventually flee for other kingdom's with better ...

  13. Wha Happened? #5 (vs Rangers and @ Tigers)

    Here again, is a brief and not at all accurate reflection of how the Twins did over the past week

    Game 20

    Rangers 2 - Twins 1
    Despite the evening's overlong, numbingly-slow, seemingly interminable catalogue of the talents of others, the Twin Cities were delighted by their own brief shining moment of glory.

    But enough has been written about the Vikings' draft...The Twins also played and saw Josh Willingham hit a homerun in a losing effort to a ...

  14. There's no Punting in Baseball

    From time to time, I pause in my pursuit of the goofiest possible photoshops, to write things about other things. Such writing reflects my opinions and is not reflective of the opinions of editors at Twins Daily or readers like you. I hope it inspires questions and discussion, and if it simply irritates you, don't worry I'll be back to the photoshops soon.

    As you may know, people really like sports.



    Lots of people.


    Millions of people.
