Chris Herman and the Twins catchers Listening to Seattle series there was Chris Hermann catcher for seattle. His only game, 1 - 4. So then I got wondering about other Twins catchers or prospects since we are worried about our catching futures.

Now I might have missed some, but his is what I found and if you look at the overall quality there is only one true star catcher on the list....

A curmudgeon looks at the Twins The assessment of Twins by Twins fans tends to seek the positive. I read about the good pitching staff and other data that is meant to give hope.

I think it is well thought out and he strengthens it with some notes about how the game has already changed so drastically over the years. This is a good change and I would love...

Sano and Judge I posted the following comment in the discussion of Lynn’s White Sox game:
When I look at the lineup I see such a gap at 4.The guys filling in the 3 - 4 - 5 spots are doing great, but with Morrison still trying to find the Mendoza line we really need Sano to give us a big bat.Of course we need a Sano who learns to strikeout a lot less.When I look at the Y...
