  2. The Newest Twin

    Remember you can vote for which Twin was amusing enough to merit inclusion in our special Peanuts from Heaven Hall of Fame by visiting our regular blog.

    By now, you may well have heard about the Brewers' newest addition, an adorable stray dog the team has adopted named Hank.


    Because dogs take a lot of time and energy to own (and are an unreasonable expenditure of payroll) the Twins will not be following suit. However, our own cat Mini has agreed to be an adorable representation ...
  3. Twins Franchise Future Rankings: Prospects 1-5

    A lot of the buzz coming out of Target Field this weekend surrounded top prospects Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano. The lines for autographs from these two players was very extensive and neither of them has an at-bat at higher than the Double-A level. This is a lot of hype surrounding two men who are a few months removed from being teenagers.

    If Minnesota is going to get out of the rut of the last three seasons, top prospects like Buxton and Sano will have to come up and perform at a ...

    [Originally published at Twins Fan From Afar]

    It's one thing to predict an Opening Day lineup after things begin to shake out in Spring Training. It's another to do it a full month before pitchers and catchers arrive. So in the spirit of good fun, what follows is my January 26, 2014 prediction for the New Britain Rock Cats' Opening Day lineup. As you can see, the first several spots in my batting order pack a little punch. Between

  5. Podcasting: Talking Tanaka, Twins & Rockcats


    [Originally published at Twins Fan From Afar]

    I've only done a few podcasts in the couple years that I've had this blog, but it's a lot of fun to do. Last night, Travis Aune, keeper of Texas Twins Fan, was nice enough to invite me on his weekly podcast. We talked for almost an hour. You definitely have to listen to it, but topics ranged from the Yankees' signing

  6. Twins Prospects Rank High On MLB's Positional Rankings

    Minnesota is widely considered to have one of the game's best farm systems. It helps to have two of the best prospects in all of baseball, Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano. The Twins have also done well to acquire some top notch pitching talent over the last couple of years in the form of Alex Meyer, Kohl Stewart, and Lewis Thorpe.

    MLB.com will be unveiling their list of the top 100 prospects in baseball on Thursday, which should include a number of players from the Twins organization. ...

ID:	6350Here's some good trivia: In 2013, 9 former Rock Cats players made major league debuts: Caleb Theilbar; Josmil Pinto; Oswaldo Arcia; Aaron Hicks; Chris Colabello; Michael Tonkin; Kyle Gibson; Andrew Albers; and Brock Peterson. With the exception of Peterson, who saw some time with the Angels, the other 8 players wore Twins uniforms. I've been attending Rock Cats games for about 6 years, but only have been following them seriously for 3 years. That being said, I watched ...

    As the Handbook receives it's finishing touches - and if you follow Seth on Twitter, you know it will be available very soon - I decided that I should put my list on here to get picked apart. Seth and Cody already made their choices public, so what the heck.

    20. Francisco Romero, P
    Romero is a long ways away and still has plenty of question marks, but the upside is evident.

    I'm probably lower on Vargas ...
  10. Cody's 2014 Minnesota Twins Top Prospects: 1-10

    One of the benefits of being a bad team for multiple seasons is the fact the Twins have been able to replenish some of their farm system with high draft picks the last two years. Add these players into a group that already included some top-notch talent and the future of the Twins organization continues to look bright.

    Throughout the offseason there will be plenty of prospect lists released by a variety of media outlets. There are always differences between how people view the particular ...

    It has been 79 days since the last time I wrote about the Twins. There are several reasons for this hiatus, a new job and a move to OKC chief among them. But it also had a lot do with the team itself, and the fact that there is only so much you can say about a team that has racked up 291 losses over the past three seasons (!!!). In a world where seemingly every baseball fan has his own blog, there are only so many articles to write about Byron Buxton and ...

  12. The Ripple Effect of Mauer's Move to First

    The Twins made it official on Monday... Joe Mauer's days behind the plate are over.

    After consulting with doctors at Mayo Clinic, it was felt that Mauer needed to avoid the chance of re-injuring himself at the roughest position on the baseball field. Even though Mauer is now symptom free and able to go about his regular offseason routine, the club felt this was in the best interest of the team and their star player.

    The move away from catcher has been something Mauer ...
  13. 2014 Minnesota Twins Offseason Blueprint

    There are plenty of ways to go about trying to fix the Twins team but some patience might be required as the club waits for some younger pieces to work their way through the minor leagues. The Twins Daily crew put out some solid information in the 2014 Offseason Handbook. One of the best parts to read about this document is the blueprint plans put together by the writers.

    There are plenty of options for the Twins but here is how I would go about trying to fix the team. Some of these ...
  14. Fishing for Holes in the Roster

    When a team has lost 90 games in three consecutive seasons, there can be plenty of finger pointing. For the Twins, there are questions to ask about how this current roster was created and what the team can do as they try and move forward.

    Where are the holes in this roster? What needs to be done this offseason? Are there internal options to help remedy the situation? All of these questions and more need to be answered before the team heads to Florida for spring training.
