Sound the alarm! The Twins pitchers currently lead the league in team strikeout percentage! I know, I know, we’re talking about three games in March. This sample size hopes one day it will grow up to become a “small sample size.”

Can Someone Please Wear #4 Now? With the announcement that Marwin Gonzalez signed with the Minnesota Twins, there was optimism in the Twin Cities. Optimism that he could be the missing piece. Hope that he would fill in the gaps on the roster.

UPDATE (March 4): Jose Berrios has been named the Twins 2019 Opening Day starter


The “Opening Day starter” distinction means more than it matters.

It is an honor given to a team’s best or longest-tenured starting pitcher, and it is treated by players and managers as just that: an honor.

How "Everyday" Was Eddie Guardado? Everyday Eddie Guardado has spent a lot of days in the Twins bullpen. Twelve of Guardado's 17 major-league seasons were spent playing for the Twins, and he added an extra four years as their bullpen coach under Paul Molitor's regime until he was let go this past fall.

At some point during his first 11 season with the Twins, he picked up the nickname "Eve...
