Why Collin McHugh is a Fit for the 2020 Twins In his fourth offseason at the head of the Minnesota Twins, there are two words Derek Falvey wishes he could take back, "Impact Pitching".

It's all the casual Twins fan has been talking about this offseason, up until the Josh Donaldson signing, of course.

The fact of the matter is that the Twins were agressive in pursuing their "Plan A" options for the...

What History Tells Us About Third Basemen Moving to First Base Last week I wrote a blog titled 127 Feet where I tried to answer the question "Should Miguel Sano play 1B or 3B in 2020?". Well, that question has been answered in a BIG way by the Twins front office with the news of Josh Donaldson signing with the Twins.

So, I am repurposing some of the points I made in a prior blog to show the history of slugging, ri...

127 Feet: Should Miguel Sano Play 3B or 1B in 2020? 127 feet, 3 3/8 inches - the distance between third base and first base. In other words, the distance Miguel Sano might be asked to move this season.

Even the casual Twins fan following the 2020 offseason knows that the front office is in talks with free agent 3B, Josh Donaldson. And before that, there were reports at the beginning of November the Twins...

Foot, Meet Throat: A 2020 Offseason Blueprint In January 2019, Thad Levine answered a question at Twins Fest:

"The best time to acquire players of that magnitude is when your window to win is wide open, not when you got your fingers underneath the window and you're trying to jam the window open. I want to do it when we're projected to win the Central and we're ready to put our foot on someone's thro...

We should Be Happy Darvish Signed Elsewhere Now that we Twins fans have had a few days to take in (and get over) the fact that Yu Darvish signed with the Cubs we can start thanking the Falvey and Levine brain-trust for saving the Pohlad dollars. It’s easy to say “Darvish was never going to come here” or “the Pohlads were never going to cough up what it takes to sign a real star” but let’s think abo...
