The offseason has been slow thus far for the Twins. The only notable additions have been Jonathan Schoop, C.J. Cron, and Ronald Torreyes. There have been some rumblings about Nelson Cruz heading to Minnesota in 2019, but thus far, no notable additions have been made. If the season started today, Minnesota's lineup would look something like this:

Why Minnesota Must Trade Brian Dozier

Posted by jtkoupal , 19 December 2016 · 2,401 views

Community Blog Post
Why Minnesota Must Trade Brian Dozier Brian Dozier has been a fan-favorite for Twins fans since he started to break out in 2013. Every female in the Twin Cities has a crush on him, and in general, everyone respects the player that he is on the field and the person that he is off the field.

For me personally, Brian Dozier has been my favorite player since Justin Morneau. Those two are my favo...

I know we have a playoff spot to chase and we should worry about what is happening on the field right now, but I think that it's never a bad idea to look ahead a little bit, especially since the Twins are fading fast and the teams competing with us are probably a little bit better, Toronto for example. With that being said, here is a look at some ideas I...

The Minnesota Twins have certainly been a pleasant surprise to their fans thus far, but it seems as though the season is catching up to them. A team that was hotter than a firecracker during the month of May is now seeing a sink back down to earth. While it would be exciting to see this team break out of their funk and stay in the race for the pennant dow...

1. Paul Molitor Will Be the Next Twins Manager

OK, maybe this is not that bold, but it is most likely going to happen. He has received nothing but compliments from Gardy and some players, so let's hope he is the guy.

2. The Twins Will Sign Either Justin Masterson or Brandon McCarthy

Pitching, pitching, pitching.... That has been problem number 1 the...

Is this Finally the Final Straw for Gardenhire?

Community Blog Post
Here we are, at the tail end of another lost season. This season, in the beginning, was a different season. The team fought, there was some urgency, and the team was able to keep its head above water for the first two months. After Kyle Gibson pitched a gem in Detroit in early June, I, along with many others in Twins Territory, were starting to become opt...

Gardy's Culture

The day has to be coming, doesn't it? This is the 4th year in a row that could be heading toward 90+ losses. For most managers or coaches in any sport, 1 or 2 poor seasons spells the end of their days with that team. Ron Gardenhire, however, has managed to keep his job during a dark time when a change is necessary. To make matters worse, much of the coach...
