Can selling now improve 2018?

I am not sure that selling now can help 2018? They can trade Kintzler. He will be a free agent. That can help 2018. If they trade Santana...

The Dreaded Middle Ground

Posted by Ted Schwerzler in Off The Baggy, 26 July 2017 · 356 views

As the 2017 trade deadline quick approaches, the Minnesota Twins find themselves in what amounts to a less than enviable situation. Despite losing a franchise record 103 games a year ago, the turnaround has put them near the top of the AL Central. At 49-50 on July 26, they find themselves 4.5 games back in the division race. That makes decision making tha...

Twins trade for Jaime Garcia Yesterday the Minnesota Twins finally got the trade done for Jaime Garcia. The Braves traded Jaime Garcia and catcher Anthony Recker to the Minnesota Twins for 19 year old right hander, Huascar Ynoa.

The Braves got a 19-year old pitcher who they obviously liked and want him to be on the team once they are out of the rebuild stage.

The Twins acquired R...

The upshot is this: this trade shows that Thad Levine and Derek Falvey have a pretty good idea of what’s going on with this Twins teamThe long-rumored, yet once-thought-perhaps-dead trade for Jaime Garcia has come to fruition, as the Atlanta Braves announced on Twitter Monday afternoon that the team had moved the left-handed starter, along with catcher An...

Top Five Twins Prospects Who Should Be Promoted (July Edition) I wrote one of these a few months ago and of the list of five I made back in May, three were promoted and two are on the disabled list or else they would have been promoted. There are only a few months left in the season, but I still decided to make another list. There is still time for promotions as the minor league affiliates enter the stretch drive. I...

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?

trades, neshek, blevins, joseph

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 · 767 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 · 2,059 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 · 658 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...
