2017 Hall Of Fame Ballot

During the long, cold, dark of winter it’s nice to have a mid-winter break to bring baseball back to the spotlight again.
Between the winter meetings and when pitcher and catchers report baseball news goes pretty dark. Most of the major trades and signings have taken place. There will be a few here and there most of the time our...

With Twins fest in the books and the first spring training games coming up at the end of the month it’s time to take a look at the upcoming roster and see what we got. Last season was disappointing to say the least. Can we look forward to something better this season?

Let’s begin by looking at the starting pitching.

No matter how you look at it the...


Mauer to First: Whats it mean? and how to sort out the nonsense

Well the move has finally arrived, we all knew it was coming sooner or later. Now it’s time for the panic and the uninformed cliché’s to fly. However before you curse the contract or start making inaccurate comparisons; stop, take a breath, and look at some facts.

Yes it’s true that Mauer is more valuable at catcher then at first base. It’s a simple...


A break down of the Morneau trade

Like most Twins fans emotionally I was sad to see Justin leave the team. During his time here he made a lot of memories for us and was easily one of the most loved Twins during our run in the 2000s and into the Target field years. Like many Twins fans I wonder how his career would look if injuries hadn't slowed him down.

However from a need perspective...


Don't be upset if we land Bryant

While Most fans (and I am one of them) are hoping the Twins get a power arm with the number 4 pick tonight there is another possibility that is interesting. San Diego 3B Kris Bryant is leading College in HRs. Heck he has more bombs then the majority of college teams. That kind of right handed power is rare in the game right now. Also position players (as...

Playoff Rundown: Whyeach team can and can’t win it all

Well it’s that time of year again, the greatest of those months, October. With the postseason about to get underway every baseball fan has one question on his or her mind; who will win it all? With that question in mind experts and amateurs alike try to look at the numbers and try to predict w...


A look at the Weekend

Well here it is, September, the stretch run. For me tied for the second best time of year with opening week and trails only October. This is the time of year when series become critical. I know a win in April counts the same as a win in September. However there is one major difference, a team with a losing streak early in the season has all sorts of time...


Quick thoughts from around the league

Well it was an extremely disappointing series against the WhiteSox. Liriano’s trade value probably took a hit and the bullpen was shelled. On the plus side Willingham keep hitting and getting on base, however the Twins have come out and said they are not looking to trade him. All I want to do is scream “why?!” As I posted before Willingham is a luxury we...

Why the Twins need to trade Josh Willingham

First let me say that I think Willingham has been great thisseason. Besides the big power numbers he is also posting a .389 OBP, tied for 8 th in the American league with Miguel Cabrera. Also he is tied for 8 th in the league in HR again with Miguel Cabrera. In fact if you dive deeper intothe numbers Willingham is in the top 10 as well in ISO (Isolated...
