  1. Friday Night Minor League Lights

    The Twins lost 12-6 to the Tampa Bay Rays. It was not a pretty game. Sure, Joe Mauer had three hits, and Ryan Doumit had a home run, but that was not a pretty game. Down 8-1 after an inning and a half makes for a long game. At least we have plenty of positives throughout the Twins farm system, so letís just jump right into that!

    Here is a look at the Twins minor league scores and highlights from the Friday games in the minor leagues.

  2. Friday Night Game Notes

    The Twins lost again, this time to the Tigers. They scored six runs on ten hits which should be enough most of the time. Unfortunately, Anthony Swarzak wasnít feeling well and it showed. He gave up six runs and didnít get through the fourth inning. Francisco Liriano gave up four more runs without completing three innings. Denard Span had three hits including two doubles, but it just wasnít enough.

  3. Minnesota Twins Top 50 Prospects (Part 3: 21-30)

    Today, we continue our trek through my Top 50 Twins Prospects list by looking at my choices for prospects 21 through 30. Yesterday we looked at prospects 31-40, and the day before I presented prospects 41 through 50. I think that this 21-30 group is interesting. You still have some young players who have great potential but havenít quite reached it... yet. You have a couple of players who have been ranked quite a bit higher who, for whatever reason, have fallen and are looking to move back up. ...
  4. Friday Night Lights (Wins, Sano and Speculation)

    The Twins return from a day off. However, they are still in the Pacific time zone, so that means some late games!! For those that didnít stay upÖ shame on you (just kidding!), but you missed a good game. With Scott Ullger at the helm, Carl Pavano was caught by Drew Butera, and Pavano responded with six shutout innings. Marinersí lefty Jason Vargas also held the Twins scoreless through six. The Twins got to the Mís bullpen for three runs in the top of the 7th, thanks to a couple of walks, an error ...
  5. Friday Night Minor League Lights

    The Twins lost yet again in a back-and-forth battle against the Royals. The Twins had plenty of runners on base again but didnít get enough to score. There was the occasional good pitch, good (or umpire-assisted) defensive plays and some bad luck. Carl Pavano just didnít have it, and the defense was also unable to hold a lead. The Twins have now lost six in a row. The Royals have won 3-0.

  6. Saturday Night in the Park (Game Notes)

    It was a terrific pitcherís dual through five-and-a-half innings. In fact, Carl Pavano was one out from getting out of the bottom of the 6th inning. Then came a blooper and an error. The Rays had a 3-0 lead, made it 4-0 later, and despite a late run for the Twins, they fell 4-1 to the Rays. In reality, after the Rays got the lead, thing were not pretty for the Twins. Jamey Carroll committed his first error. Danny Valencia misplayed a ground ball. Jeff Gray inexplicably did not allow a run in the ...

    Today, we will conclude our Organizational Depth Chart by looking at the Relief Pitchers. Frankly, it is kind of a mess thanks to about 89 minor league veterans brought in, so it will be interesting to see how that plays out. As I said on Monday, many starters will get time as a reliever, and vice versa. ...
