I can no longer say I want the Twins to emulate the Astros. Bush league maneuver to use cameras in order to steal signs.

Mid-Season *Cough* Awards The first 81 games for the Minnesota Twins were dreadful. A mere 27 wins, the worst record in baseball, is the result of bad pitching, hitting and just really, really bad baseball.

Usually the mid-way point of a season gives us, the fans, a time to reflect and think of the positive things. Things we believe the team can build on moving forward.

Nope! No...

Develop A Catcher The Minnesota Twins have the worst team ERA in the American League and their starters combined ERA, 5.59, is over a full run higher than the league average.

As I have said before, there is no real help in sight.

The same can be said for the catching situation.

Past Kurt Suzuki, in his third year as a Twin, the orginization has nothing promising. The b...

Will It Be Okay? Despair is a tough feeling to rebound from once you've felt it as badly as Twins fans have felt it this season.

The sky is falling. There is no hope. Nothing good on the horizon. It is like we've put The Walking Dead on repeat.

I'm not going to go Patrick Reusse on the bit because I couldn't say it much better than he did.

I just want someone to tell...

Needed: Swagger Sunday, May 22 was just another day where the Minnesota Twins lost during the 2016 season. It was a 3-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. What made this loss stand out was Toronto's Josh Donaldson.

Donaldson launched a first-inning home run off of Phil Hughes. As he crossed home plate, he seemed to stare into the Twins dugout. This stemming from an issue t...

Too Early to Trade?

Too Early to Trade? The Minnesota Twins are just 38 games into the 2016 season but it already appears to be a lost cause. If that is the case, the next step for the Twins is to start shopping around some of their veterans. Problem is the Twins don't have many veterans. Or, at least, good veterans.

There are a couple of names that come to mind but the one that everyone likes...
