  1. Twins Trade Targets - The Worley Division

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Yesterday, I outlined six starting pitchers who I think the Twins should target in an effort to boost their rotation. If you missed it, you can find it here. I am focusing on pitchers who are far from free agency, but maybe not household names. I want to find another Vance Worley, but this time, I'd like for it to work out a bit better. Instead of a flood of sadness, perhaps a geyser of effective innings?

    My one question ...

  2. Twins Starting Pitching Trade Targets?

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Yesterday, I started to delve into starting pitchers who I want the Twins to target in potential trades. I outlined five starters, three from the Cincinnati Reds. If you missed it, click here. Today, I have five more pitchers for you, free of charge! There are two legitimate "aces" on this list and both are almost certainly pipe dreams. That being said, it's fun to aim high. I hope the Twins aim high, because I'd love to ...

  3. My Top 10 Minnesota Twins Starting Pitching Targets

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    I've been writing so much about free agency lately, it's sick! Last week, I addressed the position players the Twins should target. This week, I've been counting down my top 30 starting pitching targets for the Twins. If you missed any of this mini-dynasty, I'll provide you some links. Since I wrote these, things have changed, but most of my ideas aren't super player-specific, more of an overall philosophy.

  4. November Mailbag!

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Welcome to another Minnesota Twins mailbag. There has been so much juicy Twins news in the past month, I just couldn't resist asking questions to qualified Twins analysts. Unfortunately, with the iOS7 upgrade, none of my emails, texts, tweets or vines actually send, so I'll just have to answer my own questions this time. This should be a nice change of pace.

    Would you move Joe Mauer to first base to alleviate any potential ...

    The seeds for the 1994 off-season were planted in 1993 when the (at the time) current collective bargaining agreement expired without a new agreement. A strike was a legit ...

  6. Using MLB 13: The Show to Replay the 2013 Twins Season

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Back in March, I took a stab at previewing the upcoming 2013 Minnesota Twins season using MLB 13: The Show. It was a hoot. I used the game to see how the Twins would fare as a team and how some of their players would perform during the upcoming season. If you look back at that preview, you'll see that Sony had a very different view for some very important Twins players. I enjoyed the exercise, and enjoyed the residual pageviews that ...

    The Twins didn't really lose a whole lot after the '93 season. We're talking about mostly minor players here. Mike Hartley was decent. Terry Jorgensen, Jeff Grotewold and Mike Maksudian were ...

  8. AL Central Preview Review

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed! If you really like reviews, I did two 2013 fun stats reviews as well: Hitters. Pitchers. Fun!

    The 2013 regular season has ended. The AL Central has produced a team that has made it to at least the ALCS. In addition, the Indians made the Wild Card game and the Royals had a pretty decent season. The Twins and White Sox battled heroically for last place, with the White Sox emerging victorious.

    Prior to the season, I did ...

  10. Welp, I guess I'll do it: The Twins should sign Robinson Cano

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    So, I guess I have to be the one to do this, huh? No one else wants to write this? No one will take the obvious grief that will accompany the following 800 or so words. I guess in some way it makes sense. I do hold the distinction for having the least reliable and most obnoxious Twins blog in the stratosphere (using a word like stratosphere is obnoxious). Although, I am more known for putting Twins player heads on bird bodies and writing ...
  11. 1991 Offseason in Review

    Originally posted at K-Slow was Framed!

    YOYOYO everybody! The offseason is upon us and the Twins have a lot of work to do. Coming off of another raging failure, the Front Office will need to pull off some sweet moves in order to make this team a contender. I have no clue what they will do and I have no desire to guess (at least not until later). Instead, I thought it would be fun to head back down Memory Lane and analyze each offseason since the Twins' last World Series. I'm not ...

  12. October Mailbag!

    Originally posted at The Slow

    I can't believe that October is upon us! The 2013 season went by so quickly. I am already enjoying playoff baseball and I thought that while I enjoy playoff baseball, I could answer a few questions that have been burning a hole in my inbox. As always, these are actual questions from actual readers of the Word documents that I use to compose my rough drafts.

    What is your outlook for the 2014 Twins?

  13. Monday Morning Madness: September 30, 2013

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    It's been said that all good things must come to an end. Sadly, this will be the final Monday Madness of the 2013 season. I know. Don't blame me though; I'm not the one who decided against a 12 month MLB season. It's time for a break from Twins baseball. After the month of September that we've all endured, a little break might not be the worst thing. I'll try to infuse some fun and positivity in this final Monday Madness of the 2013 ...
  14. Awardin' 2013: The American League!

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Welcome back to Award Season! In my previous installment, I handed out the major NL awards. If you missed it, click here. I also lamented the lack of an actual Awards Ceremony for these important honors. Think of the bowties and suspenders we are missing out on! Danny Valencia would look great in a suit, but he wouldn't get invited to the ceremony so we're kind of just back where we started, aren't we?
