Community Blog Post
I originally posted this in forums but realized this is more of a blog post:

As we have seen over the years when given opportunities to play every day Eduardo Escobar shines.Filling in for Miguel Sano so far this year he has shown he has the bat to be 3rd baseman, posting a .993 OPS while hitting 15 doubles and 7 home runs in 2018.

Over his career Escob...

The New America's Past Time: Complaining

This blog entry will be sweet and short. The Twins are 14-12 on Cinco De Mayo. Last year on May 5 the team was already eliminated from playoff contention, at least it felt like at 8-20.

But this year baseball is fun because the team is winning. Many of the guys helping the team win are guys who will be part of the future of this team. Miguel Sano, By...

What does a successful off-season look like?

Posted by Loosey , 10 January 2017 · 1,272 views

Community Blog Post
Here we sit on January 10th and we are asking ourselves the same questions we have been asking since October 3rd, "Are the Twins going to trade Brian Dozier?"

So far this off season the Twins have hired a Chief Baseball Office and General Manager and signed Jason Castro to a 3 year $24.5M contract.

Since then they have non-tendered Trevor Plouffe and s...

Let’s start over. Way over. If you were GM of the Twins and you could go back to last October 5th (the day after the final game of the season) what would you do differently know what you know now?
Here is a list of offseason moves the Twins made from October 5th to the beginning of the season:
1) Torii Hunter Retires
2) Signed Dan Runzler to Minor Leagu...

Something Feels Different

Do you ever get a strange feeling, and you can't put your finger on what it is? Well lately I've had a strange feeling every time on I turn on the Twins game. It's a feeling I haven't had in a while, what is that feeling you ask? Well, it started on Friday night. I turned on the game and I thought to myself, I think the Twins are going to win. Then i...

Bill Smith's Biggest Blunder Was Something He Never Did

Posted by Loosey , 18 April 2012 · 278 views

Community Blog Post
With the Twins pitching staff seemingly dwindling by the day I started to think about what the Twins could do to bolster it or what could they have done to prevent this. Then I remembered reading a rumor about a trade the Twins were looking at after the 2007 season. If you recall this is the off-season Johan Santana was traded for Carlos Gomez, Philip H...

Time To Adjust "The Twins Way" At The Plate

Posted by Loosey , 05 March 2012 · 337 views

Community Blog Post
Recently JJ Hardy came out and mentioned that some of his success at the plate last season was due to going back to what he does naturally, which is pulling the ball. The Twins wanted Hardy to go to the opposite field. Hardy mentioned his first BP session with the Twins back in 2010, "My first round of BP with the Twins, I was trying to (pull the ball),...

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Community Blog Post
Last Saturday pitchers and catchers reported and today the rest of the Minnesota Twins are down in Fort Myers for Spring Training. If you haven't had a chance to experience spring training I highly recommend it. Imagine going to a relaxing baseball game at Target Field, now imagine adding a vacation and an extra layer of "laid backness". For the younger k...
