  1. Twins Minor League Report (8/19): Pitchers Get It Done... AGAIN!

    We've been dealing with dreadful pitching in the major leagues pretty much everyday since... well... 2011. Today was more of the same. In fact, Kyle Gibson was sent back to Rochester after today's outing.

    There were some other minor league moves as well. A.J. Pettersen was moved from New Britain to Fort Myers along with Matthew Summers. To make room, Fort Myers sent Alex Swim back across the street.

    On a positive note, those in the FSNorth viewership got to see a glimpse ...
  2. Rochester Rotation Shuffle

    When Mike Pelfey was activated from the disabled list earlier this month, P.J. Walters was the odd-man out of the Twins rotation. He was outrighted to Rochester on July 8th and made his first start on July 12th.

    Once Walters was designated for assignment, it was assumed he’d be joining a rotation that consisted of Wance Worley, Liam Hendriks, Pedro Hernandez, and Cole De Vries, all of whom have major league experience. That doesn’t include Andrew Albers and Logan Darnell, both southpaws ...
  3. Twins Minor League Report (6/29): Goncalves, Pitchers en Fuego

    Merry Gibsmas! Kyle Gibson made his Major League debut this afternoon in front of a nearly-packed house. If you're waiting to get home to watch Gibson's start on DVR, I won't ruin it for you.

    ROCHESTER RED WINGS 0, SYRACUSE CHIEFS 1
    Box Score

    Offensively, the Red Wings just didn't get it done. Doug Bernier and Jeff Clement both doubled and, throw in a Bernier single, that's all the hits they accounted for today.

    Aaron Hicks struck out twice in an 0-for-4 ...
  4. Twins Minor League Report (6/3): Vote for Pedro

    The only Twins news of the days was the purchasing of OF Clete Thomas’s contract. To make room on the 40-man roster, LRP Tyler Robertson was designated for assignment.

    LRP Blake Martin was promoted from New Britain to take fill Robertson’s lefty role in Rochester’s bullpen.

    INF Joel Licon was summoned from Extended Spring Training to Cedar Rapids to help while SS Niko Goodrum recovers from yesterday’s concussion.

    All the moves made today are reflected here. ...
  5. Twins Minor League Report (5/24): Ain't No Sunshine

    If seeing this makes you not watch tonight's Twins game, you can thank me later.

    Ain't no sunshine when the Twins are on
    It's not warm when they play
    Ain't no sunshine when the Twins are on
    And they've been gone for way too long
    I'm not sure they know how to play.

    One a less depressing note...

    Transaction round-up for today:

    Rochester fills the spot vacated by Deduno by activating #FreeAnthonySlama. If Anthony Slama was

  6. Trade Implications: Liriano

    You can go read various threads and articles on this site if you want opinions on how the Twins did by trading Francisco Liriano to the division-leading Chicago White Sox.

    I'm going to break down what this trade does from an organization standpoint.

    SALARY:

    It appears that the White Sox will pick up the rest of Liriano's tab for the season. This saved the Twins $2,073,800. (Their payroll is now $97,775,800 before factoring in the 25th player they need to ...
