ID:	7451With just a few days remaining before the Twins were to travel to Chicago to begin the 2014 season, Chris Parmelee got the sickening news that his services would not be needed a the major league level. Out of options, the Twins were willing to expose him to waivers and risk losing him to an organization. As an additional gut punch, all of the other organizations in baseball said “eh, no thanks”.

  4. Issues in the Outfield

    The Indians’ David Murphy should send the Minnesota Twins’ front office and coaching staff a bottle of champagne. After all, the struggling left-handed outfielder hast just six doubles this season but two of those came courtesy of the Twins when they have infielders positioned in the outfield.

    While the 2014 Twins infield numbers have flourished, the outfield has languished.

    The Twins’ outfield was a defensive liability last year. In 2013, they posted an unsightly -35.3 ...

    Haikus written for each of the Twins Opening Day 2014 starters


    This was our lineup,
    An ode to Opening Day,

ID:	7289When the Minnesota Twins signed Kurt Suzuki this past offseason the focus was on his defensive capabilities and his offensive abilities were basically an afterthought.

    “We wanted to add some leadership to help the pitching staff,” Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said in March. “We went out and got some starting pitching, but we also wanted somebody to help them on defense. With Joe [Mauer] moving to first, we were willing to sacrifice some offense ...

ID:	7187Over his career, Phil Hughes has seemingly been one solid secondary pitch away from taking over the world.

    Since his prospect days, his curveball was considered this dangerous weapon. For Hughes, unfortunately, the pitch never manifested into that killer pitch as projected. Eventually, the pitch was unceremoniously dropped from his arsenal in 2012.

    When asked why the deuce took the backseat to other pitches in his repertoire, Hughes cited ...
  12. Twins Game Attendance: The Honeymoon is Over

    PREVIOUS


    The Twins were 3-3 heading into opening day at Target Field, which frankly seemed a bit surprising considering the way they started the season. There seemed to be a faint hint of optimism about the team.

    Calling the 2013 Rochester Red Wings season a roller coaster ride would be considered a drastic understatement. Rochester started off the year at 2-11, went on to finish the season 77-67, clinched a wild card birth, and made their first playoff appearance in seven years.

    This years team is completely different, none of the current pitchers were on last years opening day roster, and just three position players from opening day are returning. ...
