Speeding up the Game of Baseball

I am a baseball purist. I truly like sitting at a game or watching the game on TV and it doesn't really bother me in any way shape or form that the game takes 2 hours or 6 hours. For me I like the strategy, I like watching each pitch, trying to figure out how they may pitch to a particular person. I like the late inning pitching matchups, the lineup op...


Adding to the Joe Mauer discussion

Joe Mauer is tied for the 8th highest salary in baseball in 2014. Could this be the worst money spent by a team in 2014? I want to say that I am a Joe Mauer fan. I have said from the beginning, I think the Twins needed to sign him, even though I wasn't a fan of what he was going to be paid. I also believe we should have attempted to trade him in 2012....


$15 Million vs $505k

7 days into the Minnesota Twins 2014 season is fun to look at. 4.3% of the games are done, and it has an interesting vibe to start the season. If I were to tell you:

Joe Mauer 7k's, 0 RBI, .250 Avg
Brian Dozier is batting .143 10K's
Arcia/Willingham injured

The Minnesota Twins would be 3rd in the Majors in Runs scored???

If I gave you those same st...


Gotta give my 2014 Twins Preview!!!

This has probably been said multiple times yesterday and today, but I am going to say it again, one of my favorite times of the year, MLB opener!!! Our beloved Minnesota Twins start the 2014 season in Chicago at 3:10 vs Chris Sale and the Chicago White Sox. Before the game, it only makes sense to give projections and thoughts on what the Twins are going...


Starting the 2014 Season

After a grueling unwatchable 2013 season our Minnesota Twins signed two of the biggest free agent signings in Twins history, Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes. We all know that, we added Pelfrey to the mix, and we already had Correia. 4/5 of the rotation is set, good news for Twins Territory, right?

Thinking about the off season moves, and the moves t...

Bud Selig is leaving as baseballs commissioner at the end of the season in 2014. Good Riddance!!!! I haved spoke about how Bud Selig destroyed some of my modern day baseball. He helped destroy 2 of my favorite baseball players growing up, Jose Canseco and Ken Griffey Jr. I am not going to go into details surrounding those two players, but I thought i...


Watching the long ball is something I am not used to in my life

Posted by rogrulz30 , 12 August 2013 · 143 views

Community Blog Post
I only know the "Twins Way". The Twins way in my lifetime has pretty much been this:

Solid pitching, pitch to contact guys, throw strikes, eliminate the free pass.

Solid defense, the Twins more the most part of the last 20 years has been very solid, and preached.

Sac/bunting guys over, taking the extra base, hit and run. "Piranha" "Domeball"....


My wife asked me "Why do you 'have' to watch the game?"

I got married almost 2 years ago. I had two things that were a must as we got married. 1. When the Twins are on, I am going to watch them. 2. I have to have a man cave. Those are pretty easy things to ask for in a marriage. My wife is not a sports fan at all. Her current, but traded favorite Twins player is still Nick Punto, her current favorite...


Afraud, Steroids wrecked my generational great players.

So, PED's is the hot button in baseball right now, and I finally had to have an opinion on this. I think I am becoming more opinionated now than ever. I think Bud Selig did the best job he could ever do turning his head to the use of steroids in baseball that you could ever do. First thought was during the Sosa, McGwire years baseball didn't even test...

If you can see the video, I am hoping that my 7 month old daughter strike a deal with the Twins, as they obviously need some starting pitching. The pitching has frustrated me so much I have to build for the Twins future. J/K

First off, being a dad takes some time away from a lot of things, and one of those things was...
