  1. Non-Complacency Key for Byron Buxton's Offseason

    It could be easy for Twins uber prospect Byron Buxton to approach this offseason with a big head. He is coming off of one of the best minor league seasons in Twins history. Baseball America recently honored him with their top award as the best minor league player for 2013. Buxton is being compared to super-star players like Mike Trout and that can make it tough to motivate yourself.

    When a player is considered head and shoulders above his peers, an attitude of complacency can emerge. ...
  2. The chronicle of the shoulder injuries of Twins' RHP Samuel Deduno

    Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch
    ----
    Last season, after his World Baseball Classic performance (which ended with a pulled groin that made him miss a chunk of Spring Training and 44 games with the Twins) and his consistent performance in June and July that had him enter August with a 7-4 record and a 3.18 ERA in 12 starts, made many people in the Twins Cities call Samuel Deduno an"Ace". This included several well-respected mainstream media. (For sample ...

  3. Rumor Mill Round-Up: 1/6

    The last two weeks have been rather slow for the Twins, as well as all of baseball and the corporate world in general. Holidays falling on successive Wednesdays will do that. With that season now officially over, things should start kicking back into gear.

    And fortunately, even though we've seen little meaningful roster action recently, there are still plenty of intrepid reporters working diligently to keep our rumor appetites satiated. Let's get caught up on all Twins-related whispers: ...

  8. The Ken Burns' Test

    In one week, the Hall of Fame will announce who (if anyone) was elected to Cooperstown. There are a privileged few who get to vote for those hallowed halls, but just because most bloggers don't have a say, doesn't mean we can't use our blogs to have a say about literally everything else, including silly little exercises in analyzing Hall of Fame voting.


    Last year I offered an economist's sense of how to vote in order to maximize your ballot. This year, as I continue to avoid ...

  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 ...

    I know I am a little bit late from other bloggers, but I am on holiday vacation and thought this would be a good time to do my top 50 prospect list. Starting today I will be bringing you five prospects a day with a quick scouting reports and a ETA when I think they will be ready to come up. My list is by no means supposed to be in the league of the great Seth Stohs and you should definately order his 2014 Twins prospect handbook along with Jeremy Nygaard and Cody Christie. However, this is my ...

  12. Twins have Cause for Optimism

    The past three years have been rough ones in Minnesota; the tables tell you that. They have been winning games in the mid-60s and flirting with their first 100-loss season since way back in 1982.

    However, sides can sneak up on people and, when you look at all that has been happening at the franchise of late, it makes you wonder if the Twins might be able to sneak back over the 70 wins marker and actually go a bit further than that and surprise fans betting MLB World Series.

ID:	6262These are trying times if you're the coach of a local professional sports team. Vikings head coach Leslie Frasier got the axe last week following a season that saw his team lose 10 games. Mike Yeo is on the hot seat with the Wild under-performing. And Rick Adelman might just give up with the number of tribulations that seem to endlessly plague the Timberwolves.

    Ron Gardenhire has endured more losing than any local coach over the past three years, and ...
