Sir Mix-A-Lot's Rotation Guide: Filling Out the Back End

Posted by Secondary User , 27 January 2018 · 436 views

Community Blog Post
With the offseason hot stove about as warm as a [insert pathetic attempt at humor here] and pitchers and catchers set to report in just three weeks, it's roster prediction time. This article will start by looking at the starting rotation.

At the time of publication, most of the free agent starting pitchers are still available and the T...


The Path To A Competent Rotation: A Shorter Trip Than You May Think

Posted by Secondary User , 23 November 2016 · 1,850 views

Community Blog Post
It's no secret that the biggest position of need for the Twins is the pitching staff. Sadly, this is a very weak free agent pitching class, and with arms like Santana, Hughes and Gibson still around and reports out that the Twins won't be adding payroll this offseason there doesn't look to be much in the way of room for additions anyway.

Jepsen's Changeup and it's Implications on Twins analytics

For those who...


A Case for Buxton and Sano in the majors

Posted by Secondary User , 12 June 2015 · 1,602 views

Community Blog Post
At first glance, you might think the idea of calling up Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano to the major league club would be ridiculous. They are respectively the 1st and 2nd ranked prospects in a highly regarded Twins farm system, they are 21.5 and 22 years old, and a .279 and .254 batting average at AA doesn't scream "Ready for the Majors." But as is often th...


Ricky Nolasco: Back to the Future

Posted by Secondary User , 15 January 2015 · 754 views

Community Blog Post
January 1st has a much different tenor in 2015 than it did in 2014 for Ricky Nolasco. A year ago, Ricky had recently signed the largest free agent contract in Twins history (though that's not saying much) with the expectation of being a veteran presence to help stabilize a rotation that was in shambles. After a disastrous 2014 campaign, suddenly the idea...
