Beating the Blister: a preview and prediction of game two with Oakland

Posted by nrwv7q in The Special Season, 19 July 2019 · 433 views

Beating the Blister: a preview and prediction of game two with Oakland Written by Nash Walker

Game one recap: Eddie Rosario was the hero on Thursday, golfing a three-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning to take a 4-3 lead. Kyle Gibson pitched well and earned the victory on the bump. Mitch Garver and C.J Cron added much needed insurance in the eighth with solo homers. The final: 6-3 Minnesota. Series score: Minneso...

Byron we need you

Byron we need you I had to share this quote from Sid Hartman's column since I too have a concern about Buxton and his ability to be on the field. We really miss him right now and I would love to see him play 150 games a year for us, but injuries take a toll.

I have no solution for him, I love his all out style, but other than a bubble wrap uniform I cannot see him as a l...

Please Stop Telling Me How To Be A Fan

Posted by Dome Dogg in Dome Dogg's Blog, 18 July 2019 · 906 views

Please Stop Telling Me How To Be A Fan I attended dozens of Twins games every year in the mid-90's as a kid. I sat through lineups composed of Otis Nixon, Butch Huskey, Midre Cummings and Rich Becker. I watched rotations that featured Scott Aldred, Bob Tewksbury and Rich Robertson.

Then, the 2000's happened. On one hand, it was very fun to see the Twins consistently contend for the playoffs...

Quick, without looking, tell me the #3 starter for the Minnesota Twins in 2016. Having trouble coming up with the answer off the top of your head? Join the club. Well, let me enlighten you and just provide you with the answer. It’s Tyler Duffey. Yes, the same Tyler Duffey was is now emerging as one of the better right-handed options out of the bullpen. Th...

Baseball Gets Goofy with Ginter

Each year Topps goes outside of the baseball realm with the Allen & Ginter product line. Yes, it’s still a baseball card set, but the product explores avenues off the diamond as well. Ranging from standard base cards to mini tobacco type offerings, there’s a little something for everyone here. Allen & Ginter has long had a unique following and giv...

End of the Rope for Schoop?

Posted by Patrick Wozniak in Patrick Wozniak's Blog, 16 July 2019 · 2,195 views

With the trade deadline quickly approaching Twins fans are rightly focused on adding pitching to the major league roster. The offensive is still on a record setting home run pace and has great major and minor league depth, so any offensive additions would be superfluous. However, the Twins may be able to add by subtraction.

Jonathan Schoop may have been...

Why Didn't the Twins Make a Trade Already?

Posted by Mike Sixel in Mike Sixel's Blog, 12 July 2019 · 1,629 views

Edit to note: the tables are now fixed, I believe.

Fans, we are a demanding bunch! We want fixes now, and we want them cheap, so our favorite teams can do more fixing. I maybe spend too much time on Twins Daily, and I post a lot. That makes me wrong a lot……or maybe I’m just not all that good at this baseball thing, who knows. One of the main things being...

A Suggestion for the FO for The Trade Deadline

Posted by mike8791 in mike8791's Blog, 11 July 2019 · 1,056 views

Lots of great ideas for what Falvey and company should be doing this month. If you believe,as I do, that this team is for real and with a few significant upgrades, have a realistic chance to go far in October, then half-way measures will be hard to take for us long-suffering fans.

Hard to say if there is a greater need in the rotation or bullpen. Let's...

MLB Realignment Doesn't Have to Wait

Posted by jtkoupal in Blog jtkoupal, 10 July 2019 · 960 views

It seems pretty clear at this point that a realignment is on the horizon in Major League Baseball. Different ideas have been shared, but the most popular and most sensible one is for baseball to realign their divisions so that the teams are in closer proximity to each other. Such an alignment would probably not help any team more than the Seattle Mariners...

2019 Season FA relievers at the half way point

Posted by diehardtwinsfan in Blog diehardtwinsfan, 09 July 2019 · 734 views

This is my second installment tracking all of the FA relievers. This was a personal nit to pick with the front office given the team's need and the plethora of available options. At the quarter pole though , the results were not as good as I'd have liked personally. At this point, the sample sizes are large enough that we should be able to get a feel for...

Strat-O-Matic Baseball: Rangers at Twins 7/6/19

Game Summary

The Twins were able to scratch cross just a single run in the first, despite hitting 4 singles. Two of them were infield hits, not allowing for runners to take an extra base. Schoop struck out with the bases loaded to end the inning... and then Pineda fell apart.

Pineda gave up 2 runs in the second, 2 in the third, and despite pulling him...

Taylor Rogers Deserves to Be an All-Star

Posted by Thieres Rabelo in Brazilian Twins Territory, 07 July 2019 · 2,297 views

Taylor Rogers Deserves to Be an All-Star I think Taylor Rogers may have been the greatest Twin to be snubbed from anything since Joe Mauer didn’t get the 2017 Gold Glove. After earning the longest save from any Twins pitcher since 2000 yesterday against the Rangers (he retired all seven batters he faced) and becoming the pitcher with the most saves of three or more outs for the club this centur...

Apparently Carlos Carrasco has been diagnosed with leukemia. While the Indians and MLB haven't made an official announcement, he gave an interview in the DR.

This is bigger than baseball. Hopefully he can get the treatment he needs.

Why José Berríos is NOT the Twins' Game 1 Playoff Starter

Why José Berríos is NOT the Twins' Game 1 Playoff Starter With the Tampa Bay Rays set to make the 2019 MLB Playoffs and turn the 115-year-old approach to playoff rotations on its head, it’s well past time for questioning the effectiveness of the traditional approach to postseason pitching. But it’s the Minnesota Twins and José Berríos who present the most interesting postseason pitching situation.

I live in Dallas and will be going to just a few games when we come home and I will give some away to friends and family.

I'm particularly intrigued by the challenges of talent evaluation and acquisition, and all that goes into it. This intrigue was heightened en...
