ID:	4388The Twins dropped two of three in Washington over the weekend, widening their deficit in the AL Central to 7.5 games. For the big-league club, things are looking rather grim.

    That was to be expected, however, and fortunately things are considerably brighter down on the farm, which is where fans should be focusing their attention for signs of positivity this year.

  2. Trilogy of Error (Twins at Nationals -- Games 57-59)

    Twins at Nationals

    A Small Amount of New Hope (Twins 4 Nationals 3 - Game 57)

    Thanks to rain that wouldn’t go away, this Nationals series will be played in a space of barely over one day.

    Condensing things makes this interleague series into a neat little three part trilogy. Like Star Wars or The Godfather.

    Well, it will be for anyone in the Land of Lakes still sporting a TC on their hat, at least.

    Tonight’s game had the underdog ...

    Miguel Sano: Probably a cornerstone to the 2016 Twins

  5. Deibinson Romero is knocking on the door

    Before the season began, Deibinson Romero wasn't cracking many top prospect lists. As a 26-year old prospect(?), there had been some tough seasons in the minor leagues. He needed multiple seasons in Beloit, Fort Myers, and New Britain. After 2,600 plate appearances in the minors, Romero had never faced a pitch above Double-A.

    Things have changed so far this season for Mr. Romero.


    This year it took another trip back to the Eastern League for Romero to get back on track ...
