Gilberto Celestino was recalled from St. Paul to take the place of Byron Buxton, now returning to the IL after fracturing his hand in Monday’s marathon game. Ober conti
  2. The Twins fell 10-7 to the Reds Tuesday afternoon. A thrilling five-run comeback saw the Twins light up Cincinnati's bullpen, before the Reds pulled away in the ninth inning to snap the Twins winning streak at five.

  4. The Twins' exhausting season dragged on Tuesday, as they lost their second game of a six game road trip and dropped their sixth game in their last eight.

  5. I agree with most of your points. However, if this year has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t have enough depth (now that the Twins are on their 7th CF). I specifically targeted a INF because the Twins have very little depth in that department prospect wise.
  6. I think I agree Mike! I wrote previously about whether to trade or extend him. I think there’s a really compelling case for a 2 year $24 million extension to help lengthen the rotation and retool next year. This article was more predicated on a more extensive rebuild if the organization came to the conclusion that they won’t be good in 2022. Thanks for reading and commenting as always.
  7. With the Twins out of playoff contention, Michael Pineda is a candidate for a strong return at the trade deadline. Here are 3 destinations and 3 trade packages Pineda could net the Twins. I recently wrote about the Twins’ conundrum in dealing with Michael Pineda. The Twins rotation faces uncertainty beyond 2021. Kenta Maeda has regressed significantly since his Cy Young contention in a shortened 2020. José Berríos is only under team control through 2022. Randy Dobnak, recently, has looked like no sure thing to be a major league staple. This leaves Pineda. Opinion was fairly divided about

Today, I’ll look at 3 possible destinations and packages for Pineda if the Twins decide to trade him. The
  9. The Twins faced a familiar foe in the Yankees Tuesday, with an even more familiar outcome, losing 8-4. Minnesota lost Rob Refsnyder to injury and capitulated after a promising start.

  11. This is a good question. WPA is split between the 2 teams in the game. The winning team, cumulatively, will contribute .500 WPA, the losing team, -.500. Shoemaker’s -.433 is out of a possible -.500 for the Twins as the collective losing team.
  12. It’s funny you say that, I always look at the pattern of the probability chart as a proxy for what the game was like. Worst of the season for sure.

  14. The Twins fall to the Royals after a nine-run first inning and a four-run second inning. They are now 4-6 in their last ten games, all against the Orioles and Royals, and drop to 22-35 on the season. That and more in tonight's recap.

  15. As the Twins discover whether they have simply made a bad start or are just a bad team, they face a tough decision with Michael Pineda; trade him, or extend him? On the mound, he has the look of a person who desperately needs to use the bathroom or has an itchy clothing tag which won’t stop bothering him. Michael Pineda is fidgety, twitchy and frankly, uncomfortable to watch. His physical quirks bely the smooth operator on the mound. Over the last 3 years, Pineda has been a model of consistency and excellence for the Twins. As the team answers the question of whether they have started sl
