    For fans of Byron Buxton, here is a recent story in the Des Moines Register about his life in Low-A ball....

    Interesting analysis and comments. One more factor that is most likely contributing to his struggles is the lead-off hitter's role, at least in part, is to see lots of pitches to help the hitters...

    That outfield would be fun to watch if many fly balls are hit. Which one of those three guys is going to hit his way on to the opening day roster?

    Based on the likelihood the Twins will open the season with 13 position players, and assuming they keep two or three catchers and four or five outfielders, there is room for six infielders. Unless...

    I have trouble getting very excited about payroll discussions because the public information on total revenue of the Twins (a private corporation) is not complete and not knowing how much the total...

    What is announced publicly and what actually happens behind the scenes are not always the same. Although I have no real evidence to prove it, I would be very surprised if Terry Ryan did not, over the...

    In 2013, Jamey Carroll should be a utility player. His value is highest in that role in part because he is a great role-model for the younger players to learn from and emulate. Professional attitude...

    I agree with others who have already said he needs to pitch inside more often, but maybe one of the reasons he is less effective in the majors than he was in the minors is major league hitters can...

    Not bringing up Slama is more disappointing than surprising to me. I would like to have seen him get one more chance at the big league level, but he is not on the 40-man roster - taken off last...

    Reasonable rules. OK by me.

    I presume with rule #4 the standing exception is the bloggers who post a copy here of content they post originally elsewhere.

    Shipley's story has a bit more detail. From one of Pavano's quotes it sounds like there was more than...

    Actually, some of us get both...living in Iowa and being able to watch the Twins. In my case here in north Iowa, my cable company carries FSN so almost every Twins game is on TV - HD even. Of course,...

    Vasquez makes sense at this point in the season. The Twins need someone for Blackburn's slot in the rotation and it gives them a chance to get a look at Vasquez early. Hendriks might be another...

    This move was at least as much about Rochester's need as it was the Twins'. Tosoni just went on the DL and they were going to have to call up an OF from AA. This move is much better for both...

    There are still a couple of weeks to go, but if Morneau does not start hitting the ball with authority more consistently, the best option would be to open the season on the DL and continue to get as...

    Right now Burroughs does not appear to be versatile enough for a utility role. I think it is just as likely at the end of spring training that Terry Ryan will find a SS/UTIL guy from outside the...

    By now you have probably seen this, but Rhett Bollinger, Phil Mackey and Joe Christensen have all reported via Twitter that Plouffe has a slight hamstring strain and is out until at least Wednesday...

    Didn't say I liked it. :) Just looking at probabilities. I'd negotiate a buyout and let him go back to Japan where he might be able to have some success again.

    At this point, it looks like Baker may just be held out until they need a fifth starter around April 15 and no one would replace...

    There is another factor that shouldn't be discounted. Perkins himself credits the change in his off-season (2010-11) workout routine for his velocity improvement. He did less weight training and more...

    According to Dustin Morse of the Twins, Span is out with a stiff neck (day-to-day) and Joe Benson will play CF today. Will he lead off or will the lineup be juggled?

    I'm also concluding that puck34 is right. Ray Chang may have to be the middle infield utility guy until Dozier is ready.
