    With the Twins having a severe need for pitching in the organization as well as six picks among the top 100, it is certain that more than one of those picks (and probably the second overall pick) will be used to draft a pitcher. To this respect, I am presenting profiles of the top 22 pitching prospects for the 2012 MLB draft.

    I will be presenting these alphabetically, and at the end I will rank them. I will be doing about ...

  3. Saturday's Minor League Round-up

    The Twins extended their winning streak to four by beating the Brewers in extra innings today. (#ITSHAPPENING?) Ben Revere and Trevor Plouffe played big parts. Drew Butera finally found a bat that feels right in his hands.

    But thatís not what weíre here for, so letís check out the system on this Saturday:

    ROCHESTER 6, GWINNETT 4

  4. Where do we start.....

    Figured I would give this blog thing a try!

    First of all, I like most of you, am a fan of baseball and the Twins in particular. It has been interesting reading some of the posts on here as to how to fix the team. I will offer no theories but instead will post some statistics using what have become the standard measuring tools - AVG/OBP/SLG & OPS for batters and WHIP, K/BB, K/9 & OPS against for pitchers. I will also note the Twins ranks among the AL teams.

    And now, ...

    First and foremost I would like to wish my brother a Happy 30TH Birthday today! You are and always will be my favorite person to talk baseball with. If it weren't for Beloit losing in the 11th inning tonight, the Twins would have given you clean sweep across all four levels for your birthday present. Regardless, I hope you enjoyed your day. Happy Birthday Kavan!

    Hitter of the Day:
    Drew Leachman - 1B - BEL - A: 4-5 HR (2), 5 RBI, 1 R

  7. Friday Night Lights

    Scott Diamond actually gave up a few runs on Friday night, but because the Twins hitters brought their big bats to Miller Park, Diamond becomes the Twins first three-game winner. Josh Willingham got the offense started in the first inning with a long two-run homer. The game was 2-2 going into the 5th inning, but Joe Mauerís two-run double gave the Twins a 4-2 lead. They scored two the following inning on a two-run Denard Span single. They added four runs in the top of the eighth inning to put the ...

  10. Thursday Night Lights

    Drew Butera is hitting .350 and the Twins just swept the Tigers!! All is good in Twins Territory now, right? Well, maybe not, but there are starting to be some signs of positive. Justin Morneau went opposite field for a home run, one of his two hits. Trevor Plouffe homered for the second straight game. Brian Dozier is inching up on .300. PJ Walters was terrific through four scoreless innings, but between the fifth and sixth innings, he gave up three solo home runs to cut the Twins lead to 4-3. But ...

    Wait for it...

    Are you ready, yet?

    Don't adjust your monitor but the Twins just swept a two game series in Detroit. That's not a typo either.

    Over the course of the two games, the Tigers were a little error prone with six mistakes and the Twins were able to capitalize for five unearned runs. It has been great to see Trevor Plouffe find some semblance of power with two home runs in recent ...
  13. Shoulder stifling Pavano's repertoire

ID:	982It was revealed a week ago that Carl Pavanoís shoulder was hurting and that the team had him undergo an MRI for precautionary measures.

    Fortunately for the already thin pitching staff, the MRI showed nothing more than inflammation and, in preventative efforts, the Twins eased up on their workhorse, limiting his pitches and allowed him to miss the recent series in Detroit to have some soft-tissue therapy on his shoulder. The hopes are that by lightening his ...

  14. Blackburn or Doumit, Tigers Series Recap, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog


    I know it was another short series, and I know the wins weren't pretty, but it still counts as a series sweep, so I'm breaking out the broom, mostly because there's a real chance that I won't be able to break it out any more the rest of the season.


    Some notes from the series:
