I don't know much about Bo Porter but I now know he's a clown.
It's okay for him to use strategy in a 7-0 game (defensive shift), but it's not okay for Lowrie to use strategy to try to beat the...

Winning Nine to Five,
What a way to make a living.
Barely getting by,
It's all taking and no hitting.

He takes too many pitches and doesn't hit for power in the clutch.

"Hitting" is not synonymous with "batting average".
Batting average is one aspect of hitting. There is also power and discipline, which Dozier has shown both this season and the majority of last...

If Pedro can hit .230 with a .300 OBP he is solid in my book. I think he is a cornerstone to the next Twins play off run. Toss in double digit bombs is gravy!! He is young "the wizzard of Oz" was...

His OPS+ is 125. His OBP is .328. His SLG is .468.
Batting average tells only a fragment of the story, which is why it should never be used in isolation.

Shane's probably just described the best plan.
When he came onboard with the club, I was opposed to the idea of a no-hit SS. Then I watched him play. Honestly, his D is such an asset that his bat...
Here's a simple but useful way to look at it - call it Bill James in the 5th grade. First of all, nobody gets more frustrated than me watching Florimon bat. Its not even the lack of hits but the...

This reminds me a little of the Aaron Hicks struggles from last year. It is magnified because it is the beginning of the season. Also, as DFGG indicated, he's a bit snake bit. His BABIP is .100. Last...

Can we wait until he serves his suspension and is back on the field before we rule anything out or in?
By the time he comes back, it will be late May -- 8-9 months after he last played. No spring...

Shortstop right now is reminding me of the baddest of bad old days, with Lenny Faedo and Houston Jiminez playing for the Twins. I was willing to trade a weak bat for Flori's D, but I'm not willing...

I wonder if this is a good opt-out for all parties. The Sox can take back Drew without losing a pick. They could negotiate a contract that doesn't allow him to be offered arbitration next season....

Florimon's hitting this year has been non-existent so far. I'll be the first to tell you that. It's almost like he's fighting Bartlett for worst hitter on the team. However, it's still early in the...
O runs for the opponent in the first inning?
I didn't realize that could happen.
Anyone who can reference Hosken Powell and Bombo Rivera in a screen name, two of my favorite love/hate Twins from the bad old days, gets a lot of leeway in my book. Now if you could have worked...
Also, I have heard of the juicy lucy, and we'll have to try that. We're not that big of guys on some of the more "fancy" dining, I believe that the best way to learn about a place, and it's culture,...

There was this tweet from Blyleven, too:
Bert Blyleven @BertBlyleven28 2h
Am I asking too much for the Twins starters to attack the strike zone and keep...
An idiot would take the Twins at 20:1 odds. Betting on them at 180:1 just makes you a homer.
Hats off to Cola for following the dream instead of the money. Well done. Bonus points for translating for Arcia in the postgames.
That being said, the stark contrast between the adulation over...
Parmelee can play RF and 1B.
Herrmann can play RF and 1B and 3B and LF and CF and Catcher.
He's also on the 40 man roster. Parmelee isn't.
The last time they opened the 2013 season, they went 4 and 2 before the unpleasantness in KC.;)
Let me guess. Batting?:p
I do think that Chris Herrmann should be up instead of Bartlett in order for Pinto to get more ABs. Other than that, I have no complaints.

Congratulations to the MInnesota Twins' manager Ron Gardenhire. With the Twins 7-3 win over Cleveland today (Saturday), Gardenhire becomes the 60th manager in MLB history to reach 1,000 career wins!...

What is the difference between the two spellings? According to Google Answers, the two words have almost the same meaning in all cases, and g-r-a-y is simply an American derivation of the original...
