Escobar and Fuld on 1st and 2nd. Speed on the bases, bottom of the ninth. When is the last time the Twins pulled off a double steal?
How many people?
When do you want to buy your tickets? (I wouldn't worry about it being a sellout.)
If you want to buy in advance of arriving in Mpls. your best bet is probably going to be...
Given the recent Hall of Fame vote I thought this video was topical:

Oh yeah! Although we usually did the stomping just after the game ended cause there were lots of them lying about. Other memories I have from the Met: Walking underneath the bleachers along the left...

My ideal candidate would be:
1. Someone, anyone, that has never played for, coached for, or scouted for the Twins or their minor league teams. In other words, someone that has NEVER been attached...
You need to learn the rules. The catcher has every right to stand in front of the plate or even in the baseline so long as the ball is in the air en route to him or he is in possession of the ball....
Yep. Easy score on a conventional slide. Catcher is not standing in the base line. He's got one foot at/near the plate and is standing off to the side. The runner simply wanted to put a hit on the...
The Twins just set a single season record for strikeouts with 1,127, eclipsing the record of 1,121 set by the woeful 1997 club. The Twins are 25th in MLB in runs scored and 26th in BA. They are on a...
Dave Philley, of the Phillies (and of the Philadelphia Athletics)
OK, I cheated and looked that up. Also checked Brewers that might have played for the Brewers, but there was nothing.
Jesse Orosco, the Oriole.
If the Twins were to trade Scott Diamond to Arizona...

Went to the full list at the link provided and was agreeing with almost everything until I got to Best Manager. #1 Jim Leyland? and Joe Maddon of the Rays isn't even on the list. This is so wrong.
Not even Sid Hartman?
A starter that throws 92 mph is nothing to be proud of. I would call it a copper lining.
Well, since he's not a qualified starter, how many other starters have this high of a GB rate, but...
He had a good sinker in his first couple of starts.
That's all I've got for positives.
Honestly, I don't see what all the hullabaloo is about. He throws 92 mph (mostly) and sometimes hits...

That is quite a disparity. If you dig a little deeper he is failing within the AL Central.
At Chicago he's batting .000 (0 for 7)
At Cleveland he's .200 (4 for 20)
At Kansas City he's .250 (6 for...
No, I don't think he's saying that. He's saying that Ryan has mismanaged the roster.
Yes, and this has been known for the last 30 months or so. That does not excuse the fact that there are...
And most teams with more than two professional outfielders have veteran professional outfielders.
I suppose in late innings situations and you need to make an out (read: put down a...

Good article by Reusse and points out an attitude in the Twins front office of not being risk takers.
I wonder: If the Nishioka signing had worked out well for the Twins would they be more...

I really can't stand the Fox Baseball broadcasting team. Tim McCarver has a terrible habit of making inane observations, usually involving words that rhyme. "Wouldn't it have been great if Fidel...

Parmelee and Arcia being sent down is a message the Twins FO is sending to these guys. Just because the Twins have a dearth of OFers doesn't mean your job is secure.
Parmelee has had plenty of...

Can't get your link to work in either Firefox or IE10.
Anyway, if the price is right, yes, the Twins should extend Morneau's contract. Something like $16M over 2 years would be about right.

He WAS an extra outfielder on my fantasy team.
In this scenario, I'd like to have:
1. Joe Maddon
2. Mike Scoscia
3. Buck Showalter
Sandberg is currently the third base coach of the Phillies. So wouldn't the Twins need to get permission to talk to him? Why would the Phillies do that?
