Strong And Sturdy, The Twins Have A Rock Solid... Bullpen?

Posted by Matt Braun , 23 May 2019 · 1,355 views

Community Blog Post
On the day of this article being written, the Twins were rained out in Anaheim of all places and so my thirst for Twins content remained strong (evidently the field’s thirst for water was not, but that’s a joke for a different time).

Max Kepler (And the Belated Breakout)

Posted by Matt Braun , 09 May 2019 · 2,161 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. If you remember (I truly hope you do not), the Twins were mostly unwatchable that year as they rolled over and died from the very beginning and slogged their way towards the worst record in baseball.

Community Blog Post
Ever since the Twins decided to stop playing in a stadium that had the aesthetic of a bowling alley, it has felt like the Twins have needed to improve their bullpen. Now, I’m not saying there is a correlation here, but maybe the threat of a screaming foul ball taking care of someone’s shin made the relievers pitch just a little better in the Metrodome. Pe...

What History Can Tell Us About Michael Pineda's Innings Total in 2019

Posted by Matt Braun , 07 March 2019 · 1,931 views

Community Blog Post
The 6’ 7” beast Michael Pineda took the mound the other day in Fort Myers and fired off 2 scoreless innings to go with his 2 previous scoreless innings, giving him an easy to calculate ERA of 0.00 so far in spring training. Pineda last pitched in the majors for the Yankees but you might have also recognized him by his nicknames “Big Mike” or “Large Mikeal...
