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

Posted by Secondary User , 23 November 2016 · 1,690 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. Looks to be a bl...

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

Posted by Secondary User , 22 August 2015 · 1,671 views

Community Blog Post
So Kevin Jepsen made some interesting points last night after recording his first save for the injured Glen Perkins. He talked about how his changeup was important last night against the two lefties and how early in the year he had relied less on his changeup to lefties, and it was resulting in his left handed splits getting out of control.

A Case for Buxton and Sano in the majors

Posted by Secondary User , 12 June 2015 · 1,517 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.

But as is often th...

Ricky Nolasco: Back to the Future

Posted by Secondary User , 15 January 2015 · 725 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...

What are they thinking

Posted by Secondary User , 03 December 2014 · 879 views

Community Blog Post
Can someone please explain to me what Terry Ryan is thinking? For three years we've been rebuilding. Guys like Correia, Marquis and Pelfrey were brought in as payroll was slashed. And now, in the past 3 hours, two pieces of news have convinced me that they have absolutely no clue what they're doing.

First, we signed Torii Hunter to a 10.5 million dollar...
