We saw Kent Hrbek's debut, August 24, 1981 on local TV, and it was about as good as it gets. Go ahead and click on The Sporting News link, and you'll learn how the scout that signed him (Angelo Guiliani),

Sam Carlson Ready For The National Stage

Posted by Off The Baggy in Off The Baggy, 22 May 2017 · 339 views

Right now, Sam Carlson is a senior at Burnsville High School. In a matter of a couple weeks, he'll very likely be able to call himself a professional baseball player. On top of being tabbed as a first round pick in the upcoming Major League Baseball draft, Carlson is expected to be the first prep pitcher ever taken that high from the state of Minnesota. T...

This is a TV promo, and this is your last chance to strap yourself in.

Because the next time your favorite team takes the field, the team's ace is going to be taking the mound. The guy on your team people from other states know.

The ace. The guy who can throw fireballs and baseballs that dart about like butterflies and baseballs that start at the batter...

The New America's Past Time: Complaining

Posted by Loosey in Blog Loosey, 05 May 2017 · 615 views

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...

Flip Big Erv

Thor goes down.....Mets probably don't want to fall too far behind the Nats.
Can Levine flip Big Erv to the (supposed) desperate Mets for a big prospect or two?!?
Should they?!?!

Adrianza to replace Santana (prediction)

Posted by Deduno Abides in Deduno Abides' Blog, 27 April 2017 · 1,560 views

Not a scoop and I have no inside information, but he played left field today in AAA and has hit well on his rehab stint. It has to be just a matter of days if not hours before he arrives on the 25-man and Santana is DFA'd.

By now every team has had their first (or second) homestand, so some of the excitement and shine of the start of a new season has started to wear off. Gone are the calendars (mostly, the White Sox are giving one away Wednesday and the Tigers are giving one away Saturday) and the home opener celebrations. There are still some interesting items to be had, h...

Four things I am watching this week

paul molitor, byron buxton

The Twins sit at 8-10 through their first 18 games.

The Twins are in a much better spot than last season, but considering that opening series sweep against Kansas City, the Twins have been heading in the wrong direction recently.

The Twins begin a six game road trip in Texas tonight. I want to get my hasty thoughts down for the upcoming week.

There's n...

Kernels Hitting a Stride

Heading into their four-game series with Midwest League Western Division leaders Kane County on Thursday, the Cedar Rapids Kernels were one game under .500, trailed the Cougars by two games in the standings and were tied for second place in their division.

An unexpected afternoon at Fenway

I stumbled into a free ticket to the Red Sox game against the Pirates on Thursday. It was a makeup game and a guy seated near me also said he'd gotten his tickets free from someone. (He also insisted that Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City is new, so our conversation was not illumina...

Twins 2012 Draft

Posted by rikker49 in rikker49's Blog, 14 April 2017 · 781 views

A possible Bullpen strictly from the 2012 Draft????

In a draft that nabbed Buxton and Berrios (and to a lesser extent AB Walker) the Twins drafted Luke Bard, Mason Melotakis, JT Chargois, Zach Jones, Tyler Duffey, DJ Baxendale and Taylor Rogers.

Some relief pitchers are already making an impact, some are on the cusp of a Major League career, some are st...

Byron Buxton is Struggling but the Twins are Winning Do you like Wins (Ws) or do you dislike Strikeouts (Ks)?

The Minnesota Twins are 4-0 to begin the season and they've used all aspects of the game to help them win those 4 games. They've pitched very well, they've played great defense and they've scored plenty of runs to win two games and as much as they needed to win the other two games. Unfortunately,...

Man Forced To Finish Batting Helmet Full Of Nachos After Girlfriend Only Eats Three Chips -SHTICKBALL-

Yesterday afternoon at a major league baseball game, Cody Goldstein, 26, had to endure the pain and subsequent later consequences of eating an entire baseball helmet full of tortilla chips, liquid cheese jalapenos, and a meat-like substance. This unfortunate turn of events came about when Cody’s girlfriend, Amber, only ate approximately...

The Story of Phil Hughes, of Phillip Hughes, And How I'd Like To Ignore All Of This

Posted by Jon Marthaler in Marthaler, 04 April 2017 · 1,262 views

Last June, Phil Hughes took a liner off the knee.

Because we have this kind of information now, MLB.com mentioned that the liner had left J.T. Realmuto's bat at 106 miles per hour. That's a little more than 155 feet per second, and Hughes' follow-through put him maybe 56 or 57 feet from where Realmuto made contact. In other words, Hughes had approximate...

The Next Twins - 2017

Posted by Steve Lein in The Hanging SL, 01 April 2017 · 1,483 views

Top prospects lists have always one of the most fun things to read in the baseball offseason for me. Whether that’s by checking out the 2017 Prospect Handbook by Twins Daily’s own Seth Stohs and company , the great prospect capsules that are written on this site, or checking out any of the litany of lists available elsewhere, I can’t ever get enough. But...

The Politics of the New Minnesota Twins

I have some cousins that live in a house with a large unfinished basement. They moved to this house from one that was considerably larger, not so much in an effort to downsize, but more to find a residence that was more affordable. The problem with this was my Aunt is a longtime suffer of “I might still need that syndrome.” She will fully deny it, but it...

Loyal (Optimistic) to a Fault

Posted by Nate Palmer in Nate Palmer's Blog, 30 March 2017 · 600 views

As a Minnesota sports fan living in Wisconsin, I get asked on a regular basis why haven’t I just started rooting for the Packers. “They win, right?” is always the reasoning. I remind those I work with and my friends to remember my Minnesota fandom describes what I market to them as my greatest quality. I am loyal to a fault. Like Minnesota sports, you can...
