    Tom Froemming got a reaction from CTTwin for a video, Josh Winder's Brilliant 1st MLB Start; Gray-Balazovic Rehab Update   
    Josh Winder was magnificent in his first career start as the Minnesota Twins beat the Rays 9-3 to take the series. Cole Sands also made his Major League debut in today's game, pitching the final two frames. Highlights of those two plus Byron Buxton, Cade Povich, Jair Camargo, Jeferson Morales, Austin Martin, Alex Isola and rehab update on Sonny Gray and Jordan Balazovic.

    Gary Sánchez hit a first-inning grand slam in a LOUD afternoon at Target Field. Byron Buxton hit a pair of home runs and Max Kepler, Jorge Polanco and Carlos Correa also went deep. Down in Cedar Rapids, Anthony Prato's legs helped deliver a 2-0 victory. I think he's still running. Also featured in this video are Royce Lewis, Mark Contreras, Austin Martin and Sawyer Gipson-Long.

    Tom Froemming got a reaction from Melissa for a video, Royce Lewis Is Happening; Encarnacion-Strand Cannot Be Stopped!   
    Byron Buxton hit an incredible go-ahead home run into the upper deck but Tyler Duffey blew the save for the Twins. Royce Lewis had another very encouraging game both at the plate and in the field for the Saints. Here are highlights of him plus a look at some swing adjustments he’s making. Christian Encarnacion-Strand went off again, collecting five more hits for Cedar Rapids. Also featured in this video are Luis Arraez, Sonny Gray and Simeon Woods Richardson.

    Tom Froemming got a reaction from Strombomb for a video, How Are You Following the Minnesota Twins in 2022?   
    The Minnesota Twins have an access issue thanks to Bally Sports North. Once again, BSN is only available on one streaming service, the overpriced DirecTV Stream. If you live outside the market you can get all the games on MLB.tv, but you're blacked out if you live in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa or parts of Western Wisconsin. How to watch the Twins in 2022? There are not as many options as I'd like. Limiting access to the broadcasts is bad for baseball.

    Minnesota Twins prospect Royce Lewis had a lot of question marks regarding his swing. He's emerged from basically two lost seasons with a new-look swing and it appears to be dramatically improved.

    Tom Froemming got a reaction from Strombomb for a video, So What the Hell Are the Twins Doing?   
    The Minnesota Twins have had a busy few days, completing trades with the Texas Rangers, Cincinnati Reds and New York Yankees. The motivations of those trades haven't exactly followed a common logic, so it's easy to wonder what the front office is trying to achieve. While the picture is definitely still in the process of developing, here are my thoughts on what they're up to.

    The Minnesota Twins are in need of starting pitching but the free agent market was thinned out before the lockout. Let's talk about some trade ideas that were tossed out within the last week. What do you think about these ideas for the rotation? Links to the pieces I'm reacting to are below.

    Tom Froemming got a reaction from Old fox for a video, What's The Story At Shortstop?   
    The Minnesota Twins need a shortstop. Unfortunately, it's a familiar story. Speaking of, former Colorado Rockies' shortstop Trevor Story is still on the open market ... hmm. Let's talk about some of the shortstop options and why I'm not a fan of making plans for prospects.

    Minnesota Twins prospect Jose Miranda figures to make his MLB debut at some point in 2022, but where does he fit into the roster? Here I discuss some of the options that would make the most sense and also offer an outside-the-box idea.

    The Minnesota Twins may be active on the trade market once the MLB lockout ends, could Max Kepler be on his way out? I discuss Kepler's trade value, as well as Luis Arraez, Mitch Garver and Taylor Rogers.

    Tom Froemming got a reaction from Bigfork Twins Guy for a video, Who Are The Best 2nd-Tier Free Agent Starting Pitchers?   
    The Minnesota Twins will be looking to continue their offseason shopping whenever the MLB lockout ends, and their main focus will be on the pitching staff. A lot of the rotation stock has been cleared out but there are still some attractive names on the market. Here's a look at the 2021 stats from the second-tier starting pitching free agents. Among the best of them are Michael Pineda and Yusei Kikuchi, but several other names are discussed in this video.

    The Minnesota Twins lost a hard-fought game in Oakland on April 21, 2021 in the most soul-crushing way you could imagine. Here are some highlights from that game, as well as some discussion around how it was the perfect embodiment of the entire 2021 season for the Twins. This may be the ugliest way I've seen a pro sports team lose a game, with errors being committed on back-to-back routine plays.

    Starting pitchers are coming off the board and there is very little Minnesota Twins chatter on the rumor mill so far this offseason. Time to panic? Not yet, but I'm definitely getting uncomfortable.

    The Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants are two of the five teams still alive in the MLB postseason. They were both also outspent by the Minnesota Twins in free agency this past offseason. Here's a look back on the journey the Red Sox and Giants made back to the top of the baseball world despite not having flashy offseasons. Could the Twins replicate that success in 2022?
