Community Blog Post
For the Minnesota Twins 2017 was a year that surpassed the expectations of most fans. The team made the playoffs, and the manager kept his job (though we finally got rid of Neil Allen).

Before we begin let me get one thing out of the way, the Twins are making money. The team is profiting and the owner is increasing his wealth by retaining ownership of the team.

When the Twins promised to put a strong team on the field in exchange...

For the first time since the Byung-Ho Park experiment the Twins front office has made a concerted effort to fill the DH position with a capable every day bat.

In 2017 the likes of Robbie Grossman and Kenny Vargas filled the DH role in a not so exciting fashion. While Grossman was serviceable due to his high OBP (.361), the ugly three strikeout game in la...
