  1. Moving Pitchers on the Titanic

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    We all know how crazy the Twins starting rotation has been this season. The club keeps moving guys around hoping to replace those who are hurt or ineffective. And it keeps happening because guys who are given a chance aren't always making the best of it. All these moves remind me of a metaphor that TwinsGeek John Bonnes likes to use: moving deck chairs on the Titanic.


    It's an intriguing phrase that perfectly describes ...

  2. The k-bro Beloit Snappers Report

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    The family and I took a nice little vacation to Beloit, WI, to catch some minor-league ball and get a glimpse of some future Twins. We attended games on two steamy evenings, Friday and Saturday.


    The Snappers, the Twins Class A affiliate, are a pretty typical minor-league team. There are several features of the ...

  3. Matt Capps Paper Doll, and Being Snippy About It

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    The Twins have placed RHP Matt Capps on the 15-day DL with right shoulder inflammation. He had a MRI on Monday, which indicated that there is no damage, just inflammation, and it sounds like he's going to have a cortisone shot this week.


    Left-handed pitcher Tyler Robertson was recalled to take Capps' roster spot. ...

  4. Catching Up, Revere, Dozier, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    Hi. It's been a while. Nothing like a busy-at-work-busy-at-home lifestyle to put a dent in one's blogging ambitions. But anyhoo...


    I have a few thoughts.


    My thoughts on Ben Revere
    How much fun has Benny been to watch lately? The plays in the outfield, the improved hitting, the smiling, the adorableness, the little chicken wing thing he does in the batting box, the plays in the outfield ... ...

  5. Carl Pavano Paper Doll, Baseball and Bad Spelling Collide, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    So, I didn't really get a chance to pay much attention to this series. I was kind of busy with the "having a life" thing -- watching my kid play baseball, improving my golf game (this is a hilarious statement if you've ever seen me golf), etc. But I was able to check in from time to time, so I'm not completely lost


    Some notes:

    • Seems to me that the best starting pitching performance of the series

  6. The Ace of Diamond, Indians Series Recap, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    Another series win! We all could get used this, right? There's nothing like winning to make everyone all confident and happy.


    A couple of notes:

    • I think that my buddy Brian Dozier needs a day or two off to clear his head a little. It seems like he's scuffling a bit, especially with his glove. I think he'll be fine, though.
    • Did you see that sick Ben Revere catch on Saturday? That perfect somersault in

  7. Revenge of Moneyball, Series Recap, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    A SWEEP! A real, honest to goodness, three-game sweep! A fun come-from-behind win! An even funner walk-off win! And a strong-pitching-performance win! Yay, winning!

    And all these wins came with the classic "M" caps. So you know that we'll be seeing more of them. I like the "M" logo and all (even though I still ...

  8. Handcuffed Arms, Brewers Series Recap, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog
    On Friday when the Twins were beating up on the Brewers, for as much as I was enjoying the production, I was thinking to myself that they should save some of their hits for another day when they needed them. It's a cliched joke, I know, but considering how shaky this season has been, I worry about such things.


    But I'm reasonably pleased that the Twins still took the series, and things have been looking less glum. And, yeah, ...

  9. Blackburn or Doumit, Tigers Series Recap, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog


    I know it was another short series, and I know the wins weren't pretty, but it still counts as a series sweep, so I'm breaking out the broom, mostly because there's a real chance that I won't be able to break it out any more the rest of the season.


    Some notes from the series:

    • Hits. Hits. Hits.
    • Taking

  11. Living Well, Blue Jays Series Recap, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    After a truly awful, embarrassing effort by the Twins on Thursday, they got it together and acted like a big league team the rest of the series. A split of a four-game series against a pretty good team isn't bad, and Saturday's loss was at least somewhat respectable (if there is such a thing as a "respectable loss").


    A few notes:

    • Brian Dozier keeps flirting with me. I was happy for him for his

  12. Newbies, Angels Series Recap, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    Turns out the only guy who can breathe some life into the Twins' anemic rotation is a rookie. In fact, Scott Diamond is so magical, he even breathed some life into the Twins' hitters too. Alas, his magic only lasted one night.


    Some notes on the series:

    • I'm so happy that the Twins are done with the Angels, and more specifically Albert Pujols. I love Albert, I really do, and I'm happy that I can start

  13. Morneau, Series Recap, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    Remember back in late April when the Twins faced the Red Sox and Royals and lost like 6-7 and I said "if you score six runs, you ought to win the ballgame" (well, I didn't actually say it so you could hear it, but my husband heard it, so just work with me here)?


    I miss those days.


    The Twins have officially become "that" team. You know, the team that all other teams, even if they're ...
  14. Tears, Series Recap, and Other Notes

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    Oy. That was a punch in the gut. Followed closely by a knockout punch to the jaw.


    There's no need to go into detail about how awful that was. Not only has the starting pitching failed to improve to a satisfactory level, but now the offense has taken a break from acceptability. Let's hope that a day off in beautiful Seattle helps matters. Although we all said that for the last off day...
