  1. Twins Minor League Report (7/7): Summers Breezes

    I have returned from Cedar Rapids and a great weekend which will likely be documented here at Twins Daily in a couple of stories and more encouragement for Twins fans to make that trek to east central Iowa. On Sunday afternoon, the Twins received one of their best starting pitching performances of the season. A new member of the organization also made a very good impression in his third game with his new team and organization.

    Here’s a look at what happened in the Twins farm system ...

  3. Trade Talk: Cincinnati Reds

    Buyers or Sellers?

    The Reds have all the makings of an aggressive deadline buyer. They entered the season with high expectations and a large payroll, and as we move into mid-July they are within four games of first place in a division that looks winnable. They also have some clear needs that ought to be addressed if they hope to overcome the Pirates and Cardinals in the final months.

  4. Blue Jays, Old Age, Totally Lame. (Twins at Blue Jays -- Games 82-84)

    Centre of Horrors, With an “R-E” (Twins 0 Blue Jays 4 - Game 82)

    After an early first pitch and late jog, my trusty phone informed me the Twins were down four to zip. Last week I might’ve had enough “never say die” to keep an eye on the game, but the Yankees took that with them back to New York.

    Catching the pre-game show on my drive home didn’t exactly fill me with rainbows, hopes, and dreams. The crew kept referring to Rogers Centre as a “House of Horrors” for the Twins. ...

ID:	4727The Minnesota Twins front office likely watched with interest yesterday as one of the bigger chips on the trade market was moved. The Marlins traded starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco to the Dodgers for three third-tier prospects and $200 grand in international signing money, and agreed to pay the $5+ million on Nolasco's contract this year. Nolaso was perceived as one of the better pitchers on the trade market. The deal's details suggest some truths about the trade market ...
  6. Watching Worley Today

    Hi all,

    Our family trip continues. On Friday night we watched Mark Buehrle shut out the Twins at Rogers Centre. The highlight? Justin Morneau once again came and signed for my 10 year old son. I've got an old 2006 "Team Canada" Morneau jersey that always seems to bring him over for a visit. Lots of stories shared over the first base line over the years, and someday I'll blog about him. I asked if he's coming back next year, and he beamed, "I hope so." He signed a ...
