Max Kepler (And the Belated Breakout)

Posted by Matt Braun , 09 May 2019 · 946 views

Community Blog Post
Max Kepler is my favorite Twins player, something that has been true ever since he stole my heart with his performance in July of 2016.

Pineda last pitched in the majors for the Yankees but you might have also recognized him by his nicknames “Big Mike” or “Large Mikeal...

A Look Back At The Top Twins Prospects From 2011 (AKA... Yikes)

Posted by Matt Braun , 01 March 2019 · 981 views

Community Blog Post
Recently I was messing around on MLB.com for no particularly good or suspicious reason when I stumbled upon their top prospects list. Now, we all are familiar with prospects because as Twins fans, they sometimes bring us more hope than the major league team. But even cooler than the updated top prospects list was an archived top prospects list from 2011...
