Bat Flips: More Controversial Than PEDs and The Wave?

Posted by Twins and Losses , 03 September 2015 · 1,238 views

Bat Flips: More Controversial Than PEDs and The Wave? Bat flips. Comparable to sack dances, banging into the boards after a sick goal, and holding your shooting pose after a 3 in the NFL, NHL, and NBA respectively. Why do many American baseball fans hate a good bat flip?

I’m not talking about the weak bat flips (tosses) you see on your TVs from time to time. I’m talking about a true show with flourish. T...

Roaring Back To Relevance (Guest Post: @marcosMN) In a season which began with about as many ups and downs as can be imagined, our favorite MLB team has inexplicably soared back in to relevance, at least for the time being.

The offseason was as interesting as can be expected from a Terry Ryan-led club can be. A hometown Hall-of-Famer was brought in to captain the ship. A former fan favorite was brought...

Sample Sizes: What Are They Good For? Absolutely Nothing.

Posted by Twins and Losses , 22 April 2015 · 719 views

Sample Sizes: What Are They Good For? Absolutely Nothing. The Twins got off to a very rough start for the 2015-16 season going 1-6 in the first week which is about the worst possible start for a new manager in Paul Molitor. They didn’t even manage a run until their third game, but the second week of the season has been quite the turnaround.

One thing that has surprised me about the Twins is the play of Phil Hu...

Episode 9: The Bats Awaken

Posted by Twins and Losses , 17 April 2015 · 528 views

Episode 9: The Bats Awaken Like Vader's lightsaber cleaving through the Jedi Temple, the Minnesota Twins figured out how to get some hits. Last year's offense has finally shown up fashionably late (Kasota Gold? [Am I doing this right?]).

You Won't Touch It, Will You?

Posted by Twins and Losses , 10 April 2015 · 857 views

You Won't Touch It, Will You? “WILL THEY DO IT? WILL THEY GIVE IN TO THE TEMPTATION OF THE BUTTON? THE BEAUTIFUL, SHINY BUTTON! THE JOLLY, CANDY-LIKE BUTTON!”

The temptation is real folks. Three games into the season and some of Twins territory already have their grubby little fingers massaging the red, circular form of the Panic Button.

Sure, this season may be starting out on th...

Overreaction Theatre "Why in the name of all things Holy did they send Miguel Sano to Chattanooga - AA?? Not only did Sano show his power, but he even stole a base! Sano did everything you could ask of him this spring, and he was rewarded by spending another season toiling in the minor leagues.

What's the point of getting top prospects if you're not going to use them?! It's...

Revenge of Twins And Losses

Posted by Twins and Losses , 29 January 2015 · 915 views

Revenge of Twins And Losses Like the Rebels preparing for the Imperial invasion on Hoth, it’s time to dust off this hunk of junk. She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts. Was that enough Star Wars references in one sentence? Probably not. I’ll see what else I can do for you.

We took a bit of a break during the offseason. It wasn’t our plan, we just don’t follo...

No, this isn’t a post about the recently demolished Metrodome (R.I.P. and screw you, Zygi), this is a post about something near and dear to my heart: The Twins’ “M” logo.

I’m a huge fan of the “M”...

Vargas: Kennys Keep It Up?

[Originally posted on twinsandlosses.com ]

It seems a little inappropriate to call Kennys Vargas “Little Papi”. According to Baseball Reference he is an inch taller (6’ 5”) and weights thirty-five pounds more (275) than Mr. Ortiz. One can assume that this comparison has more to do with their skills with a bat than their impressive physical stature. They...
