In the event that the Twins are in position to be buyers at the trade deadline, here are some possible trade prospects the Twins could realistically go after to make a run at the postseason.

1.) Tyson Ross SP Padres
Ross has been the bright spot in an otherwise "business as usual" San Diego Padres rotation. Assuming SD will be looking for young talent c...

Love/Hate with Statcast With all the technological advancements made in baseball, its easy to get lost in the mess. There's new stats that make zero sense to some people, but the issue is just understanding what they tell us. Batting average and ERA are easy to grasp. What percentage of this batter's at-bats have resulted in hits? How many earned-runs does this pitcher give up o...

2018 Twins Roster...With Zero Twins Players

Posted by MaxOelerking , 20 April 2018 · 388 views

Community Blog Post
Something that I though would be fun, making a 2018 Twins roster with only similar players. For example, Mike Trout who is a career .305/.409/.566 and plays CF would be similar to Mickey Mantle .298/.421/.557.

Enjoy!

CATCHERS
Wellington Castillo .259/.319/.430
{ Jason Castro .233/.312/.388 }

John Hicks .232/.289/.395
{ Mitch Garver .193/.281/.3...

Rotation Depth The Minnesota Twins top priority this off-season has been pitching. We have made moves to bolster our bullpen (Addison Reed gets me fired up) and there is a lot of talk surrounding big name starting pitchers. Yu Darvish has been on the radar since October, getting Twins fans excited since we haven't had a top arm like his since Johan Santana. Unfortunatel...
