The Twins Position Players for 2015

The Twins Starting Options for 2015

Posted by pierre75275 , 27 August 2014 · 606 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 · 97 views

Community Blog Post
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...
