Monday Morning Madness:  July 28, 2014 Weekend Recap

Who won the most recent game? Those of us with a healthy recency bias are pretty high on the Twins right now. Everyone else? Not so much.

Logan Darnell ...sort of

Congratulations to Darnell for making his first MLB start on Saturday. He got lit up, but it's still a great moment for him. Darnell absolutely deserved this opportunity. He's...

Handful Of Twins Not Likely To Be Traded

Handful Of Twins Not Likely To Be Traded When a team could be heading for its fourth consecutive 90-loss season, the trade deadline can be a bit of a bummer. The Twins have had the opportunity to deal veteran players over the last couple of seasons but nothing has happened. Minnesota sticks with the players on their roster while not getting anything back for some of their expiring contracts....

Twins Minor League Report (7/27): Stephen Gonsalves Debuts In Mwl

Posted by Steve Lein in The Hanging SL, 27 July 2014 · 90 views

The Minnesota Twins were able to avoid the brutal 4-game sweep at home courtesy of their fellow AL Central bottom dwellers, the Chicago White Sox, after a Sam Fuld single in the seventh inning gave them just enough of a cushion for the eventual 4-3 victory. Glen Perkins made it interesting in the ninth, but struck out two to pick up his 25th save of the...

David Price... Stay or Go?

Throughout the past couple months David Price has had to deal with rumors of being traded. He already told the media about a month go that he didn't like hearing the rumors. He just wanted the Tampa Bay Rays to make up their mind. It's unclear if Price will be dealt because the Rays have less than a week to trade him. David Price is an ace and could be in...

Making Minor League Room

Posted by Shane Wahl in Field of Twins, 26 July 2014 · 224 views

I contend that there is no reason to keep certain players who are blocking prospects in the minor league system. I cannot imagine that minor league attendance is really driven by aging players.

From Rochester:

Chris Rahl
Eric Farris
Doug Bernier
Mark Hamburger
Aaron Thompson (potential add-on trade bait)
Kris Johnson (I know, but the future? potential a...

You can see it in their faces, when the Twins get behind..they quit...

and I believe the reason is that ....The coaches are constantly harrasing them..

By the time a player reaches the major leagues they have had a ton of coaching, when they come up..let them be who they are and see if its good enough.

Did the coaches ruin Aaron Hicks? Maybe..it sure...

Dinner with a Moderator

Posted by stringer bell in Blog stringer bell, 25 July 2014 · 39 views

While this isn't "My Dinner with Andre" or "Tuesdays with Morrie", I did have dinner with someone on a Tuesday. During Monday's game thread our very own "scene setter" and moderator Riverbrian noted that he was in Rochester. I work in that fair city and live just over 20 miles away. I contacted Brian when he asked about bakeries, and we agreed to meet f...

Lewis Thorpe Improving

Posted by Boone in Blog Boone, 24 July 2014 · 47 views

Over the past year, Lewis Thorpe has exploded on the scene. An unknown commodity heading into the GCL last season, he was so dominant as a 17 year old that he has appeared on various preseason Twins’ top 10 prospect lists. He has made even more news this year, skipping the Appalachian league and going straight to A ball from extended spring training. Howe...

Alex Swim Swinging a Hot Bat for the Kernels

Posted by SD Buhr in SD Buhr/Jim Crikket, 22 July 2014 · 1 views

The Cedar Rapids Kernels dropped an ugly 5-2 game to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers back on July 9 and Kernels manager Jake Mauer clearly was not a happy man afterward.

His line up had left eight runners stranded in scoring position on the night and played some shoddy defense in a loss on a night when Kernels pitching combined to strike out 13 opposi...

I'm surprised to note that I have not blogged about an all-star game in three years. Not in Kansas City, nor in New York. Maybe I was actually off living my life. But with the game in the Twin Cities, I was eager to both celebrate the festivities in person, and wa...
