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...

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".

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...
