How much sleep do you think Rocco Baldelli got Wednesday night?

Sure, this is far from his first Opening Day, but there will be plenty of firsts involved in it: His first regular-season lineup card, his first win or loss in charge of a club, and who knows, maybe even his first managerial ejection.

The Perfect Crime: A Look Back at the Twins' Trade for Joe Nathan There was a time, particularly during his first stint as Twins GM, that Terry Ryan was a trading partner to be feared, largely because of his ability to turn throw-in prospects into major league contributors. There are stories -- likely apocryphal -- of opposing GMs deeming a low-level prospect untouchable because Ryan had been inquiring as to his availab...

How Aggressive Should the Twins Be About Trading Eduardo Nunez? The bright spots for the Twins have been few and far between this season, but they have been there.

Are The Twins Really One of the Worst Teams Ever? With almost two full months of the season in the books, the number of Twins fans who believe there’s a playoff run in the cards has dwindled to almost nil. Those left clinging to hope are doing so against all visual and statistical evidence. Some fans are actively rooting for the team to break the Cleveland Spiders’ record for losses in a season (154) to...

Charge of the Light (Hitting) Brigade: Who Should Lead The Twins' Attack?

Community Blog Post
Charge of the Light (Hitting) Brigade: Who Should Lead The Twins' Attack? For much of the past 15 years or so, the Twins have had very easy decisions to make with the first spot in the batting order. Jacque Jones settled there, then handed the position over to Shannon Stewart, who was a fixture atop the order until 2006 when Luis Castillo joined the team. He held the role until 2008 when it was briefly handed over to Carlos Gom...
