2014/15 Offseason Plans

Posted by diehardtwinsfan , 26 September 2014 · 354 views

Now that the season has wound down and the Twins have finished their fourth consecutive 90 loss season, it's time to start looking at a plan for 2015. While the 2014 season did not look so great in the record book, there were some very nice building blocks for the team. For one, the offense did quite well. This is especially noteworthy given that at the b...

Top 25 Minnesota Twins Prospects 2014

Posted by diehardtwinsfan , 07 August 2014 · 1,586 views

The results were surprisingly better than I thought they'd be, but I'm not so certain...

My offseason plan

Posted by diehardtwinsfan , 02 November 2012 · 12 views

It's no secret as to where the Twins struggled last season. Starting pitching was by far the worst, but the Twins were left lacking up the middle as well as in the pen. The good news is that from a hitting standpoint, the Twins look fairly set going forward. Rochester's OF should consist of 3 decent prospects in Arcia, Hicks, and Benson (though Benson'...
