Comparing the 1927 Yankees Lineup to the 2020 Twins We’ve done it, Twins fans. We’ve officially made it to Spring Training! Baseball games at Target Field will be played before we know it.

As the team assembles in Ft. Myers, some of the burning questions that will assuredly be asked of Rocco Baldelli are “Who will be hitting leadoff?” or “What will the batting order be?”

It’s a fun exercise as a fan beca...

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.

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...
