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. A Winter Meeting's Guide to Twinsey World

    Monday marks the kickoff of the Winter Meetings in Orlando, Florida (aka: a convenient holiday for baseball executives and their families).


    Naturally, as the Twins do their part at the Winter Meetings for the next four days, they may make time to have a little fun in the Happiest Place on Earth That is Also a Festering Swamp. But the attractions they see may have extra ramifications on their plans for the next four days. Here we present the possible outcomes of how what they ...
  2. The Promise of Players: A Blueprint to Win the Game of Bases and Balls

    'Tis the season for the best baseball minds (and me) in the Twinsblogosphere to offer their takes on what the local 9 ought to do to improve their roster. Using the Twins Daily Offseason Handbook as a guide, you take your best crack at improving the Twins. Many bloggers dig deep for undervalued gems, or carefully consider how to balance free agency with player development.


    I choose an irrelevant theme and offer totally implausible pipe-dreams for about 1000 words.

  3. The 2013 Twins By the Only Stat that Matters (Pt. 3: Pitchers & Front Office)

    This is the first in a series of three articles evaluating the Twins 2013 Season. First we introduced the stat, then we used it to analyze hitters, finally we'll use it to analyze pitchers and staff members.


    Anyone can evaluate a player's performance in the field, but what about their performance in the field of entertainment?


    The Twins completed their third straight 90-loss season, but rather than chastise the unproductive and cheer the talented, I'm here ...
  4. The 2013 Twins by the Only Stat that Matters (Part 2: The Hitters)

    This is the second in a series of three articles evaluating the Twins 2013 Season. First we introduced the stat, now we're using it to analyze hitters, finally we'll use it to analyze pitchers.
    Anyone can evaluate a player's performance in the field, but what about their performance in the field of entertainment?

  5. The 2013 Twins By the Only Stat that Matters (Pt. 1: The Stat)

    This is the first in a series of three articles evaluating the Twins 2013 Season. First we introduce the stat, then we use it to analyze hitters, then we use it to analyze pitchers.


    There's plenty of time to dissect the Twins' season, and there are plenty of people to do it. Rather than crunch the numbers or analyze the trends, I prefer to dissect it in the best way I know how: poorly!


    It's in that spirit that I offer the following new statistic: AARP or Amusement ...

  6. Gamblin' Man

    I have fun at Terry Ryan's expense. (Sorry big guy, it's just too easy.) I photo shop him in all kinds of compromising outfits like say...this one!


    While this seems bad, plenty of people are frustrated enough with Terry's attitude to this off season to do far worse than photoshop him onto a Dutch breakdancer's body. Just what did he do?


    Well, he seems to have ...
  7. Ring out the old. Ring in the new.

    It's 2013, and that means that the Twins haven't lost a game yet this year!!

    Yes, enthusiasm has been in short supply for the past two seasons, with more than a few loyal supporters questioning their allegiances faster than the Malfoy family at the end of the Deathly Hallows.

    We peanuts have long been among the most sentimental of the blogging community. We sigh with memories of Johan and Torii (heck, we even mourned Boof Bonser and Brendan Harris). And as the Twins rebuilding ...
  8. A Thanksgiving Hors D'ouevre: A Peanuty Blueprint

    'Tis the season both for overeating and overanalyzing potential Twins transactions. While most people in Twins Territory will be fixated on football in the next 72 hours, I thought, on the off chance that someone sneaks a peak at this space, that I should make it look presentable. So, here's a new blog on how best to address the biggest issue the local nine faces this year.

    Most of the truly accomplished and respected Twins' bloggers have presented their blueprints for general consumption. ...
  9. Back at Last

    The regular season is so close you can taste it, and we Peanuts are back from our long hibernation with our season preview posts. Later in this week we'll post our preview of the Twins season (the optimistic, pessimistic, and realistic points of view) and predictions for the year ahead from the smartest analysts we know.


    But first, the reason for the prolonged delay between posts. It turns out that it's easier to post about things when you don't have a full time job to attend ...
