The Twins Position Players for 2015

Community Blog Post
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 · 641 views

Community Blog Post
Everybody knows the Twins Starting five have not preformed up to standards this year. The biggest question facing the Twins this winter is what to do to improve the big club.

2. The emergence of several younger players: Vargas, Santana...

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 · 126 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...
