  1. Rizzo Signing a Model for the Twins?

    I'm starting to think this is the type of signing the Twins should start to use on some of their younger players like POTENTIALLY Arcia, Hicks, and other up and comers given they actually produce for at least half a season. Imagine if the Twins had been able to lock up Mauer much earlier and for much cheaper given the risk of a bust. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/0...#disqus_thread By the way the key word here is POTENTIALLY given production ...

Size:  24.1 KBKyle Gibson is anxious to finally reach the big leagues, and he's currently making a strong case in Triple-A with a 3.32 ERA and 1.16 WHIP through seven starts. His most recent outing was his most impressive: a complete game shutout with eight strikeouts, two walks and four hits.

    Gibson is on an innings limit this year and has already logged 40 innings in Rochester, increasing the urgency to call him up soon so he can spend time adjusting to the majors, ...
  3. Twins Minor League Report (4/12): Soul Patrol Part Deux

    Three minor league affiliates played on Sunday. The two upper-level minor league affiliates played very good, close ball games. Ft. Myers had a day off. The game in Beloit on Sunday was just crazy. You’ll note the final score looks much more like a football score than a baseball score. That is all good news for the Kernels hitters. It certainly doesn’t speak well for the Kernels starters on this day. Consider this early preview… Kernels outfielders (JD Williams, Byron Buxton and Adam Walker combined ...

    Orioles at Twins

    A Damn Shame (Game 32)

    These days, it’s a lot easier to keep up with the Twins when you’re traveling.

    This can be perilous, however.

    For example, when the Twins blow a six run lead and you find out in the middle of a friendly conversation with your family. There are words and phrases that desperately need screaming, but politeness dictates you keep your mouth shut.

    I settled on letting out a wordless scream. I ...
  5. Twins 2013 Mock Draft Aggregate Predictions

    Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch

    The 2013 MLB Draft is less than a month away (it takes place from June 6th until June 8th.) The Minnesota Twins have the 4th pick this season, and there is a lot of disagreement (as is with every draft in every season in every sport) about who is the best pick for them and who they will select. And 'tis the season for mock drafts, so I am presenting the picks experts (and non-experts) think the Twins will make, and see ...

    Just throwing the stats out there, no analysis or deep reaching comments, yet! I may delve deeper into these as the season wears on, but for now I figured I would just post them and let the commentors read into and say what they want about them.

    My first thoughts are that even though the offense and starting pitching have room for major improvements, the team is doing quite well and should not give up this season as no one is running away with the division yet. However, if they need ...

  10. 25 Minnesota Twins Drafts in 25 Days: 1988

    Welcome to 25 drafts in 25 days! Over the next few weeks, I will be writing brief recaps of the last 25 drafts in Twins' history. This will all culminate with the 2013 draft, when the Twins will select 4th overall. I know that the MLB draft isn't as hyped as the NBA or NFL draft, due to the age and experience of the players involved, but the draft is an important tool used to build a franchise, especially for the Twins. This coming draft is extremely important, as the Twins have the opportunity ...

  11. Twins Minor League Report (5/11): Close Games All Day

    On Saturday, there were five Twins minor league affiliates played a total of five games. Two of them involved walk-offs. Another was won on a big home run in the eighth inning.

    Vic Albury (1947)
    Evan Meek (1983)

    Left-hander Victor Albury pitched for the Twins from 1973-1976. Born and raised in Key West, Albury was drafted by Cleveland in the ninth round in 1965. He was a first baseman then, and spent a year at Class A Dubuque hitting .233. He then went into the military for three years, and when he came back he was a pitcher. Somewhere along the line, Cleveland transferred his rights to the Cubs. He pitched for
