    Welcome to the 2012 Minnesota Twins Take of the Week!


    Even though this is the 2nd week of the 2012

  2. Wednesday Night Game Notes

    I know that most Twins bloggers (myself included) were not a big fan of the Twins signing of Jason Marquis. I get that. However, if you can’t appreciate the emotions that he must have gone through tonight in his first start in Yankees Stadium, in his first start with the Twins, in his first big league start since his daughters ghastly bicycle accident, then I’m really sorry! So, he gave up three runs in the first inning after the Twins scored four in the top of the first. He gave up four runs in ...
  3. Morneau's changing role leaving Parmelee behind

    Original post from North Dakota Twins Fan
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    In the final weeks of spring training, the Twins made a few adjustments to their line-up to align themselves for the start of the 2012 regular season. As part of these moves, Josh Willingham moved from right field to left field, Justin Morneau was going to be the full-time designated hitter, and Chris Parmelee was slated ...

    It's time for the Second Annual Bobby Darwin Awards, issued by this very website: VeryWellThen.Com.


    The award goes to the Twin with the fastest start within the first week to ten days of the season. The award gets its name from Bobby Darwin -- who debuted with a hot start as a 29 year old rookie center fielder for the Twins in1972, right around the time I was forming my first baseball ...

  5. Friday Night Lights

    The Twins two-game winning streak came to an end on Friday night with a 4-1 loss at the hands of lefty Matt Harrison and the Texas Rangers. Anthony Swarzak gave up four runs in seven innings. He was seeing-eye-singled to death in the 4th when the Rangers started swinging at Swarzak’s first pitch and scored three times. Ian Kinsler added a little insurance with a solo home in the 7th. For the first time this season, the Twins scored first in this game. Josh Willingham scored on a screaming liner ...
  6. Willingham proving the Twins hired the right muscle

    Just two seasons into Target Field’s existence and already the ballpark’s environment had drawn as much consternation from hitters as an expanded strike zone or moving the mound ten feet closer to the plate. Departing Twins took shots at the venue as they left the team, suggesting that the way the field plays makes players alter their swings to avoid long fly outs to the gaps.

    Rather than continuing to jam square pegs into a round hole, the Twins made an offseason signing that is ...
  7. Fun With Ridiculous Stats, Series Recaps, and More Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    The Twins have completed two series now, and after completely embarrassing themselves from the gate, they've rallied to make their record somewhat more respectable.


    I'm going to ignore the Orioles series because, frankly, I was unable to pay a lot of attention to it. I had to watch the three games in bits-and-pieces. Apparently, I didn't miss much.


    I was lucky enough to attend the Twins home opener. ...
  8. Twins Need To Look Themselves In The Mirror

    this post was originally posted at http://troystwinsdugout.wordpress.co...in-the-mirror/


    The Twins haven't done well to start the season. They're 0-4 after losing three straight to The Baltomore Orioles and the home opener against the Angels, scoring only 6 runs compared with 20 runs allowed.

    Now that they've had an off day to assess where they're at, I think it will be interesting to find out how they will respond. Granted, ...

  9. What Kind of Fan are You?

    It’s the same with every team in every city, be it the New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox , the Seattle Mariners, the Houston Astros, or the Minnesota Twins.

    Each team has fans that are willing to be patient, think logically and give the benefit of the doubt to players and front office personnel whose jobs are much tougher than it looks on TV. Each team has fans that are ready to jump off of a bridge with every loss, feeling the need to place blame on someone, a player, the manager, ...
  10. Rough Opening Weekend has silver lining


    Original post from North Dakota Twins Fan
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The Twins struggled mightily in their first series of the year against a team that is not projected to do very well this season, the Baltimore Orioles. The three starting pitchers for the Orioles looked like Cy Young winners even though each of them came into the contest with ERAs of well over 4.00 for ...

  11. "Opening Day is One Week Away" Roster Projections

    It's hard to believe, but after a long 2011 season and a very long offseason, Opening Day is just one week away for the Twins and the rest of baseball (except the A's and Mariners, I guess.). I have been doing these weekly roster projections for for weeks, and it's a lot of fun. As much as we like to think our roster projections a month out look pretty solid, it's impossible to know. No one could have predicted that Chris Parmelee would perform so well. And who knew with the bullpen.

    A year removed from what could be called an exciting rookie season, Ben Revere looks as if he could be the odd man out in the battle for a starting outfield spot with the 2012 Minnesota Twins. On Sunday Twins manager Ron Gardenhire announced that Josh Willingham would start the year as the team's left fielder, the position he has played for most of his career. This was a switch from what the plan had been at the beginning of spring training. At that time, it seemed that ...
  13. Recent Events Give More Opportunities For Players To Step Up

    Hello Twins fans and I'm back from Fort Myers where I went to one spring training game. I also listened to a lot of basketball action and went for walks on the beach. Withrecent events that have taken place in the Twins camp I think it's time to revisit the roster picture.

    First of all, Tsuyoshi Nishioka was sent to the minor league camp early ...

  14. Gardenhire announces his outfield plans

    Name:  Outfield.jpg
Views: 692
Size:  11.0 KBAfter months of expecting Josh Willingham to move from left field, the outfield position he has played the most in his career, across the turf to right field, Ron Gardenhire has switched courses on that plan.

    Back in February, Gardenhire acknowledged that the experiment of moving Willingham to right field might not work but that they would be ready if he would be unable to adapt to the new position:

    "That's what we are going to do. We're going ...
