7/21 PREGAME NOTES: Santana vs. Sanchez, TK Statue, ’87 Reunion and Injury Updates

Posted by Brandon Warne in Asking the Tough Questions, 21 July 2017 · 206 views

The Detroit Tigers are in town, and it’s fitting because the Minnesota Twins are in a celebrating mood. They’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of the 1987 World Series team — a team which toppled the Tigers to get there — and they also unveiled the eighth statue in Target Field history.

The Next Twins Bat Is Ready

Posted by Ted Schwerzler in Off The Baggy, 20 July 2017 · 1,472 views

As the summer has drug on, the Minnesota Twins have been noted to need some right handed hitting help. Whether the roster is constructed with eight relievers, or the more efficient seven, a boost could be given to the 25 man with a strong hitter on the right side of the plate. For quite some time, Mitch Garver has made a case to be that guy, and it's time...

The Twins Farm System is stacked, it's not Buxton and Sano stacked, but come on! Is there an ace pitcher or other top end pitching talent? No. Is there another bomber barreling towards Target Field? No. Is there top ten minor league talent waiting in the wings? Not yet. How then is our farm stacked?

Twins Trade Targets

It's that time of year and our favorite team is actually in contention for a playoff spot. Whether you think that contention is real or not, it's always fun now to speculate about trades the Twins may make before the trade deadline. I looked online and there isn't a lot out there regarding the Twins so I thought I would start a thread here and ask people...

Brad Hand is perfect fit for Twins I’ve mentioned Brad Hand as a trade target for the Minnesota Twins in two previous blogs , and now that we know the Twins’ surprising performance has Thad Levine targeting trades for long-term assets prior to the July 31 trade deadline, it seems Brad Hand is the Twins’ perfect trade target. Here are the reasons:

High School Baseball Notes 6/17/2017

Posted by Hrbowski in Hrbowski's Blog - Ezra Hosch, 17 June 2017 · 744 views

Mahtomedi’s senior left fielder Lincoln Rock came just shy of a home run in batting practice on Friday, which would have been a first of his high school career. Now he can spend the rest of his life telling stories about how Jack Schwietz and Weston Shelander hit the ball farther than he did, proving that pitchers rake.

Another note from Mahtomedi: Durin...

I use "Eddie Rosario, Glory Hog " as if it's a bad thing. Far from it.

Consider me your friendly, neighborhood baseball barber, if they still exist. I coat and lather you with Baseball Ref homer and hit charts until your head spins (if anyone cares, I'm going into the 12-step process for souls imbibing on the play index search).

Mauers New Contract

Posted by huhguy in huhguy's Blog, 11 June 2017 · 2,038 views

Next year the monstrosity of Joe Mauers contract comes to an end. This may leave the Twins with another dilemma. Lets assume for the moment that Joe is back, he is hitting albeit a mid 30s age player hitting, but lets say he finishes similar to where he is now and next year duplicates, do you extend him, and if so, for how much?

Twins Minor League Report (6/6): Turley Blows RailRiders Away

Posted by Steve Lein in The Hanging SL, 06 June 2017 · 644 views

In the minors on Tuesday there were a few shortstop prospects who collected hits in bunches, including a near-cycle, but they couldn’t quite match the effort of a starter called up to AAA earlier in the day. He did something not many pitchers could say they’ve done over the first three innings, along with setting a career high for K’s on the game. Bad wea...

Top Five Twins Prospects Who Should Be Promoted We are more than a month and a half into the season, and several prospects have gotten off to a great start. I avoided the prospects who have just been on their current team for just the last month and a half. Last year, I made a list like this and all five were promoted soon after I wrote it, so we’ll see if I have similar luck this year.

Ervin Santana is on top of his game.

Earlier this evening, Santana blanked the Baltimore Orioles in a complete game win. It's his second complete game shutout on the season. Santana allowed just two hits, two walks, no runs, and no baserunners after the fifth inning.

Santana owns a 7-2 record with a 1.80 ERA in ten starts. In 70.0 innings, he has allow...

The New America's Past Time: Complaining

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...

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?!?!
