  1. TD Twins Top Prospects: #5 Alex Meyer

    Age: 23 (DOB: 1/3/90)
    2012 Stats
    A and High-A: 129.0 IP, 2.86 ERA, 139/45 K/BB, 1.10 WHIP
    ETA: 2014

    Generally speaking, the best trades are the ones that both sides can be happy about. Of course, for fans, the best trades are the ones where your team ripped off the other team. In late November, the Minnesota Twins and Washington Nationals finally reached an agreement on a deal that would send Denard Span to the nationís capital in exchange for minor league pitcher ...

  2. Gleeman and the Geek Episode 80: Driving Miss Aaron and Horseplay

    Aaron and John talk about braving the blizzard in the name of podcasting, Anthony Swarzak's horseplay, Scott Diamond's setback, the Twins' pitching curse, Joe Saunders choosing "dollars and years" somewhere else, where the Twins' farm system ranks, reaching 500,000 downloads, bad mug shots, The Voice of Reason's evil twin, Lifetime Hockey's annual camp, and drinking vodka like water. Here are:

  3. Scouting with Sean Johnson

    As Spring Training approaches, weíve hashed and re-hashed Prospect Lists. Weíve dissected the signing of Kevin Correia many times over. Weíve projected lineups of every affiliate.

    There are few things more informative than talking with those that are behind the information. So today letís do something else. Letís talk scouting with West Coast Scouting Supervisor Sean Johnson.

    First off, huge thanks to Sean! As baseball is starting to get rolling, he took ...

  4. A Championship the Twins can win.

    All content was originally published at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    I figured out how the Twins could win a baseball championship. However, I don't want to waste anyone's time, so this theory falls quite a bit short of reality. If you want realistic baseball analysis, I have been writing about some Twins-related players in the last couple weeks, and you can read about them here:

    Joe Saunders signs with the Mariners
    Matt Capps signs with the Indians
    Kevin Slowey signs with the Marlins ...

  5. 2013 Spring Training Guide to Fort Myers Part III: The Food

    Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch
    ----

    This is my second annual food guide to Fort Myers and the third and last in the series of the 2013 Guides to Fort Myers that include the logistics guide and the baseball guide. The first was more of a culinary guide, pointing out what are the local foods, and pointing out places you can sample them. That guide is still very relevant and you can find it here. This one is a little different than last year's. It is a ...

  6. Off Topic - Bring Back Childhood Memories and Support a Scary Wisconsin Slasher.

    This is off-topic, but if you grew up around the same time period as me, you know what happened after the summer Little League games.

    You went to a sleepover and you watched a scary movie. Probably one where a guy with a mask and a sharp object chased teenagers around the woods.

    Like the song says, they just don't make 'em like that anymore.

    UNLESS . . .

    Slasher Studios is looking for a few more donations to fund their movie Don't Go To The Reunion, ...

  7. Rule 5 PickRyan Pressly Looking for an Opportunity

    The Twins have had some good success over the years in the Rule 5 draft. Shane Mack became part of the 1991 Minnesota Twins World Series championship team as is one of the more underrated players in Twins history. Garry Wayne had a couple of solid seasons with the Twins as a left-handed reliever. Doug Corbett had a couple of good years and was later dealt to the Angels for Tom Brunansky. Obviously the Twins selection of Jared Camp was terrific because they were immediately able to trade him to the ...

  8. Worst Twins of All-Time Series: Ron Davis

    Over the last couple of weeks, I have looked back at some of the worst players to ever suit up in a Twins uniform. There have been some poor players to wear these colors and it can be fun to look back on their careers. Some of these men went on to have successful careers in baseball or even outside of the baseball world.

    Here is a rundown of all of the players that have been covered so far in the "Worst Twins of All-Time Series" with links back to the original articles:

  10. Instead of Being Negative, lets look at the positive for the Minnesota Twins 2013

    by , 02-07-2013 at 11:18 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    I haven't had much time to go through the forums and blogs as much as I like to with the new baby on board, I do get a chance on my smartphone during my lunch every day to read TwinsDaily, and I read the Star Tribune. I have to say right now there isn't much good going on in "loserville". As quoted from most of the KFAN guys, which I can't blame right now, nothing is going right. Wild can't get things together, the Gophers are showing who they really are, the Timberwolves aren't fun ...

    Turn the calendar back two years. It's spring training 2011 and the Twins are coming off a second straight division championship. Kyle Gibson is an attention magnet in camp. He's coming off a spectacular pro debut that saw him fly through three levels ...

  12. The Road to Rebuild: Switching Draft Strategies

    The road back to the top of the AL Central isn't going to be easy for the Twins and the organization has already started their rebuilding process. Players have been traded away, some of the top minor league players are getting closer to making their big league debuts, and new coaches have been brought in to provide a fresh voice.

    Over the last couple of days, I have taken a look at a few of the different topics that will help the Twins on the road to rebuild. Kyle Gibson could be a key figure in the starting rotation of the future. ...
  13. TD Top Prospects: #7 Eddie Rosario

    Age: 21 (DOB: 09/28/1991)
    2012 Stats
    (RK/A):
    .299/.347/.499, 13 HR, 74 RBI, 62 R, 11/22 SB

    So far, Eddie Rosarioís minor league career has been largely overshadowed by Miguel Sano.

    Itís a common phenomenon with any pairing. One emerges as the fan favorite and the other continues doing valuable if underappreciated work. Maris had Mantle. Oates had Hall. Colmes had Hannity. The guy on the left of Milli Vanilli had the guy ...
