Concerning everything with the pitiful twins

I think I found out what's wrong with Jose Berrios

“Baseball is a relative sport.” By nature we often remember the really good or really bad things, and not the okay or decent things that someone does. I bet you can vividly remember the last time you won an award, but perhaps not the last time you went to the grocery store, or who your 10th grade history teacher was.   It’s a core principle to how memories are formed. Those that stand out are often fueled by the emotional context the situation derives from.   Say me for instance, I remember whe

The Gauntlet 1.2; A Complete Breakdown of the Top Relief Arms

R-E-L-A-X.   Some words of wisdom I’m recycling, and it’d probably be best I don’t reveal the source of such resonating words of prudence, humility and humbleness.   After some gut wrenching loses on the last homestand, and now a complete phase shift to an assertive series win (super hard to believe at this point), we’re back at a medium of limbo once again. Just ahead of the trade deadline, this stretch sandwiched in between the AS break and the trade deadline proves as pivotal as ever, now new

Time to buy Twinkie Stocks

(Disclaimer; this article was written during the time the Twins had the lead. In the time they relenquished it, it approximately induced me into a cycle of imminent doom and hate for the Twins Baseball. Also, the comments on the pitching staff were written before a cheese puff decided to disguise himself as Taylor Rodgers)   Lately, Jake Odorizzi has been making a legitimate case as new staff ace of the Twins staff.   And to be a frank, so has every starter the Twins have thrown out their not n

Pump the brakes on the hypetrain people.

The Twins have played 3% of the scripted schedule, and are on pace to eclipse 130 wins, and a meager 32 losses. Not to mention the Twins are well on their way to capture the division title, but would only be slated to the second seed in the conference seeding chart, playing the mediocre, (but good?) Seattle Mariners in the divisional round. HOLD YOUR HORSES, PEOPLE   Consider this. If the entire season was tabulated in the form of a baseball game, meaning that each of the 54 outs recorded in a

Getting at it with some MarWINS

♪Tis the season for Spring Training♪, ♪Come Along with me to Fort Myers♪   Not as catchy as I contemplated, but the day pitchers and catchers report usually marks a new focus for the American Sports Landscape. You get predictions, it’s (newly inundated) but the clock’s ticking for free agency crunch time, rosters battles are waged as players jockey for roster positioning, and the fresh aroma of roster cuts lingers through the air. No better time of year, especially since every club is granted a

Rapid Fire Hot Takes on the Kepler-Polanco Extensions, and Stagnant Relief Pitcher Market

My Theoretical Mindset during the week; The status quo surrounding the Twins all offseason was their stubbornness and inability to commit to any outside assets (in free agency or on the trade block), yet until recently did the Twins finally break that narrative. But… they were in-house pieces. By committing to two sprightly and talented yet unproven stars, have they overplayed their hand on their future plans?   The Twins right now are waltzing into what I would define as, a free-agency sweet sp

The Good, The Bad, and How To Fix It on Martin Perez

If you don’t already know the Minnesota twins inked the former Ranger southpaw, and well seasoned veteran Martin Perez to a short 1 year compact, to what seems to be a lackluster effort to “fortify the rotation.”   Now we can interpret this transaction whatever way we deem to be fit, but the Twins projected rotation lines up as….     Middling at best.With the likes of two potentially elite pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel standing pat for a desirable bidder, this has caught the chagri
