Blueprint Evolution

Posted by NoCryingInBaseball in NoCryingInBaseball's Blog, 28 November 2014 · 64 views

My blueprint evolution
Constructing Twins off-season blueprint has been an interesting exercise the past couple of years. There have been many needs to fill and the team tried to fill those needs with multiple trades and acquisitions. It is my humble opinion that the Twins limit their FA acquisitions & trades to one big transaction for each year for t...

It’s Time to Cash In for Jay Bruce

Posted by bwille in Wille's Way, 25 November 2014 · 623 views

It’s Time to Cash In for Jay Bruce A report has surfaced over the past week indicating that the Cincinnati Reds are exploring trading outfielder Jay Bruce if the right deal were to surface. With the Hot Stove season inching closer with each coming day, it should come as no surprise that trade rumors are floating at rapid rates. Unfortunately, the Minnesota Twin s have yet to be linked to...

Hicks

Posted by docsillyseth in docsillyseth's Blog, 24 November 2014 · 535 views

I think it's time to either pull the plug on Hicks as an OF and make him a pitcher or trade him to say like the Red Sox now for one of their "failed prospects". The Twins drafted Hicks as an everyday player but some in the organization thought he'd be a better pitcher out of HS. I think he was clocked in the upper 90's with a good CB. I think you could...

The Curse of the Trees

Posted by AM. in Blog AM., 23 November 2014 · 306 views

After the inaugural season at Target field, the Twins brass made the fateful decision to remove the 14 black spruce trees from centerfield. When viewed in retrospect, this decision, it seems clear, has placed a curse on the franchise. Consider:
The Twins won 58% of their games in the first season in which they called Target Field their home, including a...

Hot Stove League

Posted by curt1965 in curt1965's Blog, 23 November 2014 · 282 views

This is a fun time of year when everyone looks ahead to the possibilities of their team adding new personal by trades, free agency, or the farm system. The Twins and their fans are no different. If you are a re-building team (see Minnesota), this is a time for hope. New players, new coaching staff-everyone is excited.
Please tell me how Torii Hunter, Wi...

The first three weeks of the Off Season.

Posted by Secondary User in Twin's Organizational News, 22 November 2014 · 307 views

As a fan who's defended the Twins adamantly over the last four years, this start to free agency couldn't have been any more disheartening.

I'm very aware that the gears of major league rebuilds turn slowly, particularly when you look at where the Twins organization was after the 2011 season. I staunchly defended signings like Marquis, Correia, and Pelfr...

Twins Minor League Report (AFL Week 6 and Final Recap): Kepler Finishes Season Strong

Posted by Steve Lein in The Hanging SL, 18 November 2014 · 435 views

It was about a week ago where the Minnesota Twins AFL team, the Salt River Rafters, clinched their spot in League Championship game, but they still had a few games left to play before that.

Eddie Rosario entered the season’s final week with a chance at a batting title, and two relief pitching prospects had yet to allow a run in a league play. How would t...

My 2015 Twins Off-Season Blueprint There are plenty of ways to go about trying to fix the Twins team but some patience might be required as the club waits for some younger pieces to work their way through the minor leagues.

The Twins' Awful, Unrepeatable 2nd Half

The Twins' Awful, Unrepeatable 2nd Half At the All-Star break, the Twins were in decent shape, just 6 games under .500 and on pace to finish with a win total in the mid-70s that would have demonstrated clear progress in their rebuilding efforts. But they faltered out of the gate in the 2nd half, dropping 9 of 13 to finish July (the first 10 of which were at home). Now 11 under .500 and 11 game...

There has been occasional to frequent mention of the “fluke” seasonal performance of certain players; namely, Danny Santana and Eduardo Escobar- Brian Dozier in the not so distant past. Usually, the notion is raised within the contexts of position placement and possible trade packages. One recent...

Developing Yordano Ventura

Posted by jorgenswest in Blog jorgenswest, 11 November 2014 · 586 views

The Twins have been notoriously slow at moving pitchers through the system while they wait for consistency. I thought it might be interesting to see how some of other young pitchers moved through their systems. How about Yordano Ventura? Yordano Ventura and Alex Meyer both pitched in the Carolina League in 2012. Meyer started in low-A and arrived about th...

Trade for or Sign a starting pitcher...Which makes more sense

Posted by Brandon in Blog Brandon, 10 November 2014 · 643 views

When I look at all of the starting pitchers who are available for trade I can't help but think that is the best way for us to get a good starting pitcher that we want for our rotation. Its no secret we won't bother trying to sign Lester, Schertzer, or Shields. We probably wont go after Santana either since there are not many options on the open market i...

Paul Molitor: Spanish-speaking Players Expected to Learn English I have just two problems with answers new Minnesota Twins manager Paul Molitor gave in response to fan questions in a recent interview. First, he said he'd like his nickname to be spelled ‘Mollie,” citing that it looks more masculine, but I suggested his nickname be Paulie, as in a guy named Paul from St. Paul and the big sign in center field featuring a...

My Offseason Plan

Posted by tobi0040 in tobi0040's Blog, 05 November 2014 · 734 views

Here is my off-season plan.

What am I trying to accomplish?

-Being realistic with payroll, both on dollars and years

-Improve the team this year and in the near future

-Keep key positions open for guys like Sano and Buxton, and allow young pitchers to emerge.

-Address our real needs of OF defense and starting pitching

I wish I had had an opportunity to get more pictures of Jones, Adam and Rogers, but I only saw Jones pitch once and chose to shoot a video rather than try to get pictures through the netting, Adam didn't pitch at all in t...

Eddie, Eddie, Eddie!

guardado, escobar, hicks, schafer

I just checked today's AFL game and Eddie Rosario got a double in his first at-bat. We Twins fans shouldn't get too worked up about minor league baseball played in Arizona in October and November. However, there isn't much else Twins related to follow, so all of a sudden it becomes important that Eddie Rosario is hitting .400 in off-season ball.
