  1. Monday Morning Madness

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    OHHHHH man, the Madness has returned. Normally, a return of my madness would be concerning, but in this case, it's a good thing. Every Monday I'll recap the Twins' weekend series and throw in some silly stuff at the end for the kids. Come for the analysis, stay for some muted chuckles. Let's go!

    Weekend Recap

    Hey cool, the Twins looked pretty good this weekend. After dropping two of three to a ratty White Sox ...

  2. 2014 Twins Predictions you can take to the bank...and read on your mobile phone becau

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Prior to the 2013 season, I made ten Minnesota Twins predictions. Of those ten, I nailed six. Honestly, that's a pretty good success rate. However, two of the ten that I missed, I missed badly. Here's a very quick recap on my predictions from last year:

    Good: Justin Morneau will be traded. Josh Willingham will not be traded. Rich Harden will not be good. Joe Mauer will not win the AL batting title. Oswaldo Arcia, Aaron Hicks ...

  4. A Very Special Mailbag

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    My wife is a colorful character. Seriously, here is a picture of her:


    No, wait, that's Dora the Explorer. My wife does have a lot of pizazz and a curious nature though. Why not put her inquisitive nature to good use? I thought, "hey, I can get a blog post out of this." If nothing ...

  5. Ligaments are stupid

    Originally posted at

    Ligaments are stupid. The 12 people who follow me on Twitter already know that I feel this way. It's childish perhaps and it certainly ignores their important function in the human body, but I don't care; ligaments suck. A report came out this morning that super prospect and ultimate swagger-haver Miguel Sano needs Tommy John surgery, a surgery performed to replace the ulnar collateral ligament in an elbow. In this case, it's the right elbow of one of the more ...

  6. February Mailbag

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    I'm not really one to brag, but this mailbag is starting to take on a life of its own. I have not one, not two, not three, but FOUR questions from people who are not me. Sure, three of those questions are from the same person, but who are you to pick nits? In fact, what would you do? Wha-wha-wha-what would you do? I know what I'm going to do. Answer these questions:

    I really enjoy reading your blog - keep up the good work! ...

  7. Forgotten Twins? Fred Manrique

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Hey all, time for another installment of Forgotten Twins? If you don't remember, I scour the most important websites in the universe to determine if a particular Twins player is forgotten by society. I decided to sub out Bing for Fangraphs going forward. I thought it would be funny to use multiple search engines, but they're all the same, so the joke is on me. ENOUGH EXPLAINING!

    My memories of Fred Manrique

  8. Introducing: The Eddie 400

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    If you've been reading my blog for the past few weeks, you are well aware that I have recently become obsessed with Eduardo Escobar. Not in a weird way. I just want to see more of him. Not in a weird way. I think he deserves more playing time. Last year, Escobar received just 179 plate appearances, but also had one of the most memorable plate appearances of the season, when he laced a walk-off double to give the Twins their first win ...

  9. January Mailbag? !!!!!

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    My one resolution for 2014 is to answer more fake questions. If someone (me) is going to go to the trouble of asking a question, the least I can do is answer it. In addition, I'm going to answer the really tough questions that others are too scared to tackle. In fact, 2014 is the year of answering the tough questions. I won't be afraid of what the answers reveal. I intend to get to know myself better through this exercise. It's going ...

  10. Twins 40-Man Roster Analysis: Infield

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Over the last week or so, I've been investigating the Twins' 40-man roster to try to determine who will contribute to the next good Twins team. I've reached the end of this short journey and will cover the infielders today. However, I did complete this activity in four parts, so if you missed the first three, you can find them here:

    Starting Pitchers
    Relief Pitchers
    Catchers/Outfielders

  11. December Mailbag!

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    A mailbag on a Tuesday? Now I've heard of everything! Remember that song "December" by Collective Soul? This mailbag is dedicated to that song. As is typical, these are actual questions that will be actually answered by me. This month, I even have some questions written by others! Fame! FAME!

    The Twins have been surprisingly active this Fall, adding two starting pitchers and cutting one Australian. What do ...

Today, I want to discuss an even more important and personally significant Hall of Fame: The Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame.

  14. I like Phil Hughes

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Where were you when the Twins became a completely different franchise? In the last 72 hours or so, the Twins have doled out $73 million in long-term contracts, surpassing their previous off-season record by nearly $300 billion dollars (if you believe some fans). On Wednesday, the Twins signed Ricky Nolasco to a four-year deal, and tonight, they added former Yankee Phil Hughes to an increasingly (and suddenly) talented starting rotation. ...
