  1. The Twins are hitting .180/.265/.295 in situations that FanGraphs deems as “high leverage.” That’s good for a .660 OPS, .560
  2. Wallner has pretty good stats so far (.283 avg; 858 OPS) despite having 24 SOs in 46 ABs. His BA when putting the ball in play is .591 - haven't figured the OPS but it would be impressive. Somewhat similar situation for Sabato (21 SOs in 41 ABs) though the numbers are lower than for Wallner.
  3. In addition to the informative write-ups each day for the minor league teams, I appreciate the easy access to the box scores. TY
  4. This happened once this season, and the Twins even snuck in a two-headed coin. Umpire: Call it in the air, Rocco. Rocco: Tails
  5. I have been reading a lot of Halberstam lately. His "Summer of 49" about the Yankees and Red Sox is also very good, both for the baseball content and the society issues of the era.
  6. "The Teammates: A Portrait of a Friendship by David Halberstam. About the enduring friendship between four Red Sox greats, Williams, Pesky, Dom DiMaggio and some other guy." Recently read this book - Bobby Doerr was the some other guy. Halberstam included their lifetime stats at the end of the book. If I recall correctly, each of the four had more walks than strikeouts for their careers.
  7. RHP Smeltzer I'd like to see what you've got, too. What changes would you make? LHP Smeltzer
  8. "The only goal this offseason though should be a Postseason trip that results in a string of victories." I am satisfied if the Twins make the playoffs and just win their last game
  9. If one included all of the potential or suggested trades involving Brian Duensing, this article would become a book.
  10. I may be wrong, but it seems as though Jake Reed was a farmhand when the Senators moved to Minnesota.
  11. The 39th round pick, Daniel Tillo, just graduated from Sioux City North HS. He is Iowa's Mr. Basketball for 2015 and all-state as a quarterback. He is announced for U of Ky in baseball.
  12. Hearing Ray Scott call that homerun after describing the Twins' year-long series of comeback wins was terrific.
