  1. Well, Saturday Night Was Eventful

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    I suppose you probably already know by now that the Twins traded Francisco Liriano, but I'm going to talk about it anyway.


    As I was thinking about getting ready for bed on Saturday night (yeah, this was at about 10pm; I'm a fuddy-duddy), I went to check Twitter quick before plugging in my phone. And in the five minutes since I had previously checked Twitter, it had exploded with news that the Twins had traded Frankie ...

  2. Injury Report: Swarzak

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    The Twins have placed RHP Anthony Swarzak on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 25th, with a rotator cuff strain. I was surprised by this, and after a quick Twitter inquiry, I learned that I wasn't the only one. It didn't seem like there were any tell-tale signs that he was hurting like there there were with Carl Pavano ...

  3. The k-bro KC Report

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    The family and I went on yet another baseball-themed long-weekend trip, this time to beautiful Kansas City. And like every family trip we've ever been on, the weather was really hot.


    The Weather:
    Yeah, it's summer, and I'm fully aware that Kansas City knows how to do hot, but man, that heat was something else. Additionally, the whole area is suffering a devastating drought. So even though the lack of humidity ...

  4. Forecasting the Trade Deadline

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    We're fully aware, now that the All-Star break is over, that the non-waiver trade deadline is looming (I hate the "looming" cliche -- it makes me think of a big shadow of a ghost looming with the players rumored to be traded cowering against the wall a la Scooby Doo).


    Last season, the Twins did very little at the trade deadline. This year should be different; the Twins will most likely move a guy or two before ...

  5. A Little Water Therapy

    Originally posted at k-bro's baseball blog

    I was listening to the news Sunday night as I was getting ready for bed, and between brushing my teeth and putting moisturizer around my eyes, I heard the sports guy talking about how glum the Twins clubhouse is lately. He said something about the mood there being the worse its ever been and that everyone is just demoralized. ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...
