Should the Twins be looking at Trevor Rosenthal?

I'm really surprised nobody has jumped on this yet. Rosenthal has had an absolute nightmare of a season with the Nationals. So bad they r...

Topps Does Photography Greatness in Stadium Club

Each year the Stadium Club line is one to circle in the Topps Baseball release calendar. A product with strong affordability and not driven by extraordinary chase cards, the allure here is the stunning visuals. There’s short prints and photo variations across a plethora of Topps products but it’s Stadium Club that showcases images on the most beautiful le...

Is The Twins FO Actually Mad They Are Good?

Posted by Dome Dogg in Dome Dogg's Blog, 24 June 2019 · 1,013 views

Just throwing this out there: Is the Twins' front office actually maybe kinda sorta mad that the team is playing so well?

Obviously, this seems preposterous on its surface, but bear with me for a moment.

Falvine nailed it with almost every FA acquisition made this offseason, with most of the signings being short-term guys at spots the Twins have heral...

Montreal - Tampa Bay ExRays

Montreal - Tampa Bay ExRays Wow what a concept and a really good one too. Tampa Bay has had a great team and lousy support, Montreal had lousy teams and good support. Put them together and we have something fun to talk about. 82 games is an expensive season ticket, 41 might be more affordable. Each city would compete to be the most supportive and the team and MLB comes out on top. Y...

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.

This was orig...

6/18/19 - Red Sox at Twins - David Price vs Michael Pineda
Box Score:


Game Summary
The Twins struck first in the second inning with Sano notching a one-out double, followed by a Jake Cave two run homer. It was a no-doubter, as I had a 6-12 roll, which meant that unless the pitcher is very good at preventing HRs, this on...

New Museum at CHS Field Highlights St. Paul Baseball History The state of hockey has met the city of baseball. This spring at CHS Field, home of the St. Paul Saints, heralded the opening of a new museum devoted to the history of the great American game in the capital city.

Tickets to tonight’s game for a veteran

Posted by Supfin99 in Supfin99's Blog, 12 June 2019 · 1,101 views

Hey everyone I just bought 4 season tickets for 20 games the rest of the season. 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 also want to use some of the games to raise money for a cause I feel strongly about, as former military, the Wounded Warriors Project. I’m hopeful tha...

Introducing Through a Child’s Eyes
A blog about how kids experiencing winning Twins baseball for the first time connect and have fun without concerns of payroll, unwritten rules, or judgement.

The Twins’s postseason run and World Series Championship in 1991 was the first time I really got into baseball. I remember the 1987 Championship, but not that w...

Houston is the new St. Louis

As regular readers might know, I've been following the baseball moves of the Twins ever since Chief suffered through First Communion. Yep. Since the early Washington Senators under their founder, George Washington.

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

It has been a week since the Minnesota Twins' last off day, and in that time they've played six games, all on the road and all against divisional opponents.

The Good:
The good news is that the Twins still don't have a losing segment on their schedule. This means that they have yet to have a losing road trip or home stand. The team ended the week with a...

The precious, but unnoticed help of Gonzalez

Posted by Thieres Rabelo in Brazilian Twins Territory, 06 June 2019 · 1,051 views

The precious, but unnoticed help of Gonzalez With recent struggles from Twins pitchers, for example, an early season discussion has been brought up this week. Did the Twins address well enough the team’s need during the offseason? Some people sure feel like they didn’t. But one offseason move (out of several others) that we can absolutely tell was right on the money was the Marwin Gonzalez signing....

First Place Underdogs

Posted by Andrew Gebo in Around The Horn , 06 June 2019 · 982 views

Across all sports the term “underdog” is typically given to teams who lack elite talent but are good enough to be relevant. It is rare when a team leads their respective sport in most major statistical categories and fighting for the number one seed in the postseason to be given the “underdog” label. The 2019 Minnesota Twins are the exception to that rule...

ApPENding Reliever Pitch Selection - Taylor Rogers The Minnesota Twins bullpen was the dominant topic yesterday for...various reasons. It looks like it will remain a dominant topic as we head toward the July trade deadline. This blog series will be all about the Twins bullpen, but won't be concerned with internal or external additions. I wanted to take a look at how the coaching staff is tweaking the pitc...

Escobar and Gonzalez

venezuela, free agent 2018 and 2 more...

Two 30-year-old natives of Venezuela, both switch-hitters, both came to the majors as shortstops who became utility players and were to become free agents at the end of the 2018 season. I was looking at Baseball Reference and thought I would compare the former Twin with the current Twin. I was surprised how similar their numbers were.

Bullpens, usage, options, and rosters

Posted by South Dakota Tom in South Dakota Tom's Blog, 05 June 2019 · 478 views

There has been a steady drumbeat in Twins Territory regarding upgrades to the bullpen. The purpose of this article is not to disagree with them, so much as it is to discuss reasons why delaying such a move is best for the club over a long season.

First, the facts: Twins have 5 pitchers on their existing 25-man roster who have options remaining. Berrio...

What would a Madison Bumgarner trade look like?

What would a Madison Bumgarner trade look like? The Twins could make a move like this happen and I believe they should. How could this work and what are the chances they could get a guy like Will Smith in the deal as well?

Who Gets the Axe ?

Posted by tarheeltwinsfan in Blog tarheeltwinsfan, 29 May 2019 · 2,138 views

When Garver is ready to return...when Cruz is ready to return...who gets sent down? Will it be Litttell and Arraez? Will it be two relievers, since the starters are doing so well and Arraez is such a good hitter and can play several IF positions? ? Will it be 2 position players since two position (DH and C) players will be returning? What do you think?

GBC Blog 2: What could have been, Part II: 2010 MLB Draft

Posted by 33mvp in Giant Baseball Cards, 28 May 2019 · 995 views

In part two of this series we will be looking at the 2010 MLB draft. This series is about looking at how the Twins did in the draft during the past decade, not a wine piece. We will see positives and negatives in the Twins’ draft prowess. Another intention of this piece is to simply show how hard it is to draft and develop MLB players.

Twins Fans, Dallas Keuchel is Not Worth the Hype

dallas keuchel, minnesota twins

At some point, you have to know when to cut bait and move on. For Twins fans, that time has come for Dallas Keuchel.

For the last 5 seasons, Keuchel has been the Astro’s homegrown ace. From his debut in 2012, Keuchel has slowly cemented himself as one of the best starting pitchers in the game. Save for a rocky 2016 and some early growing pains, Keuchel h...
