Total Bases

Posted by mikelink45 in mikelink45's Blog, 07 April 2020 · 329 views

Total Bases Baseball records used to have so much more meaning for me, but now I realize the external and societal influences and they have taken on less meaning. 60 and 61 were magical - 70 and 73 on steroids - blah. 714 and 755 HR totals were meaningful, but they were steroided too and then along came the juiced ball and 300 + team HRs means less too.

I’m not exactly sure why I didn’t put something like this together in the past, but there’s definitely more time on all our hands as the world responds to a global pandemic. Baseball allows us to consume the sport in so many different avenues, and while I appreciate your readership both here and on Twitter @tlschwerz , there’s been more than a few great b...

This is an excerpt from a post originating at Zone Coverage. Please click here to read it in full.

A couple of offseasons ago, we ran a series similar to what we’re doing here, entitled “Minnesota Twins 40-Man Report Cards.” The only key difference to be aware of is since it’s happening now instead of during the offseason, we’re going to make it forwa...

My prediction for the new 29 man roster

Posted by stringer bell in stringer bell's Blog, 28 March 2020 · 1,473 views

MLB and the MLBPA agreed yesterday to accommodations for a shortened 2020 major league schedule. Many things are to be determined, especially since there is no firm date for the season to begin. I choose to be optimistic that there will be baseball this summer, perhaps without crowds in the stands. One thing agreed to unofficially was an expanded roster....

Happy Supposed-To-Be Opening Day everyone. Since the baseball season is (unfortunately) on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, about the only recent baseball-related news to report has been that both Chris Sale and Noah Syndergaard (in addition to Luis Severino earlier this spring) are in need of Tommy Joh...

According to my mother, my first word was “go.” I’m not sure I buy it, but if it’s true it certainly explains my predilection for travel. My first MLB game was in 1987 and after moving to Minnesota in 1998, I fell in love with the game. It was almost inevitable my love of baseball and travel would intersect, although I’m not sure when I started intention...

The Economics of drafting college pitchers

Posted by Bashwood12 in Bashwood12's Blog, 15 March 2020 · 1,118 views

As a Twins fan, I have seen several different approaches to drafting and developing pitching. We saw the pitch to contact philosophy at work for a long time. We saw the ill-fated drafting college fireball relievers and trying to develop them as starters, which failed (although we did get a nice relief pitcher in Tyler Duffey out of it). However, the cu...

Pranks are part of baseball culture which helps make the sport more enjoyable. I really liked this article about how the Grapefruit League supposingly got its name. I always enjoy a clean prank & thought that maybe if anyone hasn`t seen this article should read it to uplift your spirits.

Bet On It! Part 3

Posted by SD Buhr in SD Buhr/Jim Crikket, 08 March 2020 · 819 views

It has been over a month since we checked in on the MLB “Futures” at the William Hill and Elite sportsbooks and with spring training now well underway, it seems like a good time to see how the betting odds for the Twins (and others) are looking.

Of course, even if I see something really interesting, it won’t do me any good right now since I’m in Florida...

Two Wild Cards: Luis Gil and Dakota Chalmers

Posted by jorgenswest in Blog jorgenswest, 07 March 2020 · 2,829 views

In the spring of 2018 the Twins traded Luis Gil for Jake Cave. At the time of the trade Luis Gil had been in the Twin organization since 2015. He had thrown 65 innings over those three years with 73 strike outs and 46 walks. He did not pitch due to a shoulder injury in 2016 and had yet to pitch in rookie ball. He did not make Seth Stoh's 2018 prospect han...

The Last Days of My Beautiful Twins Zubaz

#lighterside #zubaz #dreams

I just asked my wife if my Twins Zubaz still existed.

I have to ask. They’ve seen better days. Their greatest wound is an inch and a half ripped seam in the crotch, rendering them useless for anything public. I’ve thought about mending the tear, but the rest of the Zubaz are worn so thin I imagine they’d tear in ten other places like ice crackling during...

The Best Two Words In Baseball: World Series

Posted by TwinsFan268 in Minnesota Baseball Revealed!, 29 February 2020 · 1,054 views

The Bomba Squad was great and Twins fans throughout Twins Territory were highly satisfied from March to September. And September 25th, the Twins clinched the AL Central for the first time since 2010. This was all great. Then October came and we had to play our playoff foes, the New York Yankees. And we didn't win. We lost. We were swept. We brought our pl...

Minnesota Twins: 5 reasons for caution (the hay isn't in the barn yet)

Posted by billyp4444 in Ports on Sports Blog, 23 February 2020 · 2,525 views

Minnesota Twins: 5 reasons for caution (the hay isn't in the barn yet) 1) The infield defense is slightly suspect and below average . -Sano, Arraez and Polanco all have below average defensive stats
2) Jake Odorizzi and Jose Berrios prove to be below average front line starters. Yes they've proven themselves as #3's. Can they repeatably beat other teams 1's and 2's?
3) Byron Buxton is delayed and/or hurt again
4) Mitch...

Changing the MLB Draft

Posted by rogrulz30 in "And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.", 23 February 2020 · 969 views

Changing the MLB Draft As I have the opportunity to watch Spring Training Baseball and watching all of the future MN Twins and future MLB players it got me thinking about the MLB Draft. Seems like an odd time to talk about the 2020 MLB draft, since that takes place on June 10th. The Twins have the 22nd selection this year and there are 40 rounds to draft more future players....

Comparing the 1927 Yankees Lineup to the 2020 Twins We’ve done it, Twins fans. We’ve officially made it to Spring Training! Baseball games at Target Field will be played before we know it.

As the team assembles in Ft. Myers, some of the burning questions that will assuredly be asked of Rocco Baldelli are “Who will be hitting leadoff?” or “What will the batting order be?”

It’s a fun exercise as a fan beca...

Baseball Is Staying In Beloit

Posted by Daniel Venn in Down on the Farm, 11 February 2020 · 1,317 views

The history of baseball in Beloit will not end after the 2020 season, but that’s nothing new.

For the past four years, Quint and Rishy Studer, both from just up highway 51 in Janesville, have worked diligently to ensure that baseball remains in Beloit.

It is of great credit that the Snappers Community Board has kept baseball in place in Beloit, and thei...

The three-team mega blockbuster involving the Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox, and Los Angeles Dodgers is finally complete.

At this point, most Twins fans are aware of what happened - a deal was in place on February 4th, sending Graterol to Boston as part of the return for offloading Mookie Betts and David Price to the Dodgers. However, that soon changed...
