The Twins Position Players for 2015

Posted by pierre75275 , 27 August 2014 · 494 views

The Twins have been on the lower end of mediocre this year and at the roster has been a mess. Looking ahead to 2015 is currently the funnest thing to do as a Twins fan. After looking at the Twins options for bullpen and the starting rotations in my previous blogs, I will now offer my opinions on players the Twins have available to them on the position sid...

The Twins Starting Options for 2015

Posted by pierre75275 , 27 August 2014 · 373 views

Last week on the day the Power Rankings came out, the Twins, yes our beloved Twins, led the league in OBP (.353%) Walks, and were one run behind the White Sox for the league lead in runs. Yet, the Twins were ranked 27th. REALLY??
I should add I am not u...

Who gets traded this year?

Posted by pierre75275 , 01 April 2014 · 13 views

I was thinking that there was a really good chance this year that by the end of August there is going to be a whole new Twins roster to watch. So I went through the roster and listed each player as well as the probability that they would be traded or released by the end of August.

I did this because I do not believe the Twins will be all that good this...
