ID:	8167On Tuesday night it was announced that Minnesota Twins’ second baseman, Brian Dozier, would be participating in the Home Run Derby.

    Without question, it will be an honor for him to smack dingers at his home stadium, with his home crowd, and even his own brother pitching to him, no less. The event, where the game's most prolific home run hitters get to sit on the grass, some with their families, and admire the powerful swings while listening to ESPN’s Chris ...

ID:	8062Parker Hageman and Dan Anderson got together to talk about the Twins' latest heart-wrenching road trip, the fiasco in the outfield, and who Jorge Polanco's career has started off like. They discussed soccer and World Cup trolling. Then they had the Idea to End All Ideas when they came up with a Kickstarter campaign.

    Listen -- below, on iTunes or Stitcher -- and enjoy.

  3. What can we expect from Jorge Polanco?

    Some rather unexpected news moved across the Internet on Thursday as we heard Jorge Polanco, he of High-A ball experience, would replace Yohan Pino on the 25-man roster in time for Thursday's game in Anaheim.

    Manager Ron Gardenhire had been vocal about his desire to add another bench player at the expense of the pitching staff, but not many would have predicted the 20-year-old from San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic, would be the one to get the call to The Show.

    With Joe Mauer going 2-4 with two RBI and an outstanding performance on the mound from a guy named Johan Yohan last night, I’m sure more than a few Twins fans (myself included) were imitating Robin Williams’ character in Jumanji, yelling “What year is it!?” much to the chagrin to those in close proximity.

    The year is 2014, and by all accounts their questioning is somewhat ...

ID:	7820Convincing your new bride to go on a road trip is one thing. Convincing your new bride to go on a road trip, in a foreign country, to see a baseball game, in a rental car, with no map, no GPS, no Spanish lessons, no translator, and no real clue what to expect is another. But, she married a baseball fan so she should have seen this coming. This is the story of a day trip to Baseball City and the Minnesota Twins Dominican Baseball Academy. During my honeymoon.

    “That’s approaching Jim Thome territory.”

    Those were the words that Dick Bremer used to describe Oswaldo Arcia’s mammoth four hundred and twenty-two foot grand slam to right field against the Brewers on Thursday night.

    Despite losing the last game in this year’s Border Battle, there are a multitude of good things to take away from the four game series: the Twins took two games ...

  11. A Closer Look At Joe Mauer's Struggles

    Joe Mauer wonders why everyone is lined up on the left side of the outfield.This Joe Mauer vitriol has gotten out of hand.

    Fans and media members alike are taking shots at him over his lack of production at the conclusion of just the season's second month of play. Sure, his power outage, run production and shortage of key hits has been the source of much consternation -- particularly in the last stretch when the team has dropped six of their last seven games.

    Did you hear that the Twin Cities will have a new Joe Mauer-themed ...

ID:	7528The six-foot-two Aaron Nola might not fire the fastest bullets among this year’s draft class but the right-handed junior out of LSU might be the most major league ready arm. But is a pitcher the organization's highest priority?

    Who is this guy?

    Nola, a graduate of Catholic High School in Baton Rouge, LA (that’s French for “Red Stick”), was intriguing of a prospect enough after his senior year of high school that the Toronto Blue Jays selected ...
  14. The Igniter vs. Big Papi

    (originally posted on www.twinsandlosses.com)

    Awhile ago there was a debate surrounding two prominent names near and dear to every heart that beats within Twins Territory that was trying to work out which is/was the better player. A comparison of skill not only with the bat and glove but also the passion in which they play(ed) and their leadership qualities. I’m talking about Mark Rosen’s son vs. The Cannonball. Kid Sideburns vs. Pucky Smiles. Mauer vs. Puckett.
