Ryan Howard

Saw a couple notes on MLbTR about Howard being a possible fit for the twins. Obviously Phil would pick up 75% of the bill most likely, bu...

When Will Sano Hit His Weight?

Twins Minor League Talk Today, 05:10 PM
With his second hit tonight (5/23), Miggy's average is now up to .247.I'm guessing that's still a smidge under his actual body weight.Nat...

Cereal and Statistics

I tend to spend my mornings with four things: a bowl of cereal, a cup of tea at hand, my MLB At Bat app and a folded over copy of The Economist magazine.

As I gorge on both carbs and information, I'm happy to know that the Twins have room to grow and that seemingly every night someone out does themselves (even if someone else does worse). But I'm also h...


Adopt a Prospect: A Long Road

When last we checked in on JT Chargois he was starting a long and vital season on his road to recovery and professional debut. Working back from injury is never easy, as Chargois found out to his detriment on his second outing.

After 23 pitches against the Tampa Yankees on April 13th, Chargois h...

In an effort to get back in the swing of writing about the Twins consistently, I'm going back to an old well: Cliff-Notes. After all, I end up checking the cliff notes of everything book I teach for plagiarism, I figure this is just getting ahead of the curve. (For the start on cliff-notes I made before September crushed my baseball loving soul click here...


Adopt a Prospect: Meet JT "SPIKE" Chargois

jt chargois, fort myers and 2 more...
Three years ago, we Peanuts adopted a prospect . A delightful prospect we thought could grow into an intimidating reliever...or at least his beard could . A guy we cared for, and supported through thick and (more frequently ) thin, until finally, we waved good bye as he ran joyfully through a field upstate, where all the released prospects go when they're...


Words and Numbers

fan base, statistics, scouting
Anyone who seeks out more writing about the Minnesota Twins, clearly cares about the team. They have opinions aplenty about the best direction the franchise could take. They think about it, they weigh pros and cons, and they argue with passion when they feel like they are right.

In that regard, there's very little that separates blog readers from the Twi...

Many of you may be looking at the Twins roster for opening day and wondering: "where the hell are the prospects?"

Sure, we've been told again and again that we're about to get a huge influx of talent. And sure, we've been told that the children are our future. But the young players coming north: Danny Santana, Kennys Vargas, Oswaldo Arcia, Kyle Gibson......


My First Game

first game, family, we love it
It's strange to say for someone who has written this blog for nearly seven years, but I've never written in depth about my first Twins game. But I have a good reason for that.

I don't really remember it.

I've tried to. I've imagined Kirby Puckett legging out a triple. I wishfully think that it was the Orioles so I can say that I saw Cal Ripken in the mi...

He's back. Torii Hunter is back, and in the 7 hours of his official presence in a Twins line-up again there are two clear camps in response to his return.

In the blue corner, weighing in at 140 characters, 140,000 grey hairs in the last four seasons and 140 million liters of digital ink are the analytically minded, podcast savvy, SABR-metrical, writers,...

tony oliva, hall of fame
For the last three years, the Murphy family has tried to answer a single question: how can we help get Tony Oliva in the Hall of Fame ?

No one asked them to answer that question. Not the Twins. Not Tony himself. They weren't...
