Kevin Slowey was Framed!

All the effort of some sort of horrible amalgamation of Denny Hocking, Matt Tolbert and Nick Punto. But no frosted tips. Now with puns!

  1. July Mailbag

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    A mailbag on a Thursday? WHAAAAAAA? I know, I know, mailbags are for Fridays, but tomorrow is Independence Day and that day deserves to be free from fake mailbags. In this installment, I have TWO actual questions! One is from a family member, but it still counts. Enough dilly-dallying, let's answer some questions.

    Escobar has been one of the most consistent bats in the lineup and boasts the 3rd highest OPS on the team. ...

    Weekend Recap

    I wrote about Kyle Gibson's road struggles on Friday and then he totally redeemed himself by breaking the Twins' five-game losing streak with an excellent road effort. The rest of the series was a real drag, although Jorge Polanco's triple in the ninth on Friday was pretty exciting. In fact, Jorge Polanco's everything is pretty exciting.

    Over the last ten games, Mauer has raised ...

    Oswaldo Arcia

    On June 4, I declared my desire to legally adopt Arcia. Since that day, he is 4 for 46 with 18 strikeouts. I withdraw my application. Not because I don't want to adopt him, but because it seems to be affecting him adversely. He has been hit by three pitches since that day, likely from ...

    Weekend Recap

    The series started good but ended up doing poorly. Kyle Gibson was excellent on Friday, but Sam Deduno and Ricky Nolasco got boomed like dynamite. Oh well, losing 2 of 3 in Detroit would have to fall into the "expected" category. Who did stuff that was notable? Let's find out!

    Ricky Nolasco

    On May 28, I asked if we should be worried about Ricky Nolasco. Since that day, ...

    Weekend Recap

    Ugh, not great. The Twins got two pretty poor starts from their two most consistent starters and dropped two of three to the lowly Astros. Houston has one of the worst offenses in the AL, but they looked like a powerhouse last weekend. Oh well, it's just one series. The Twins did make a pretty significant move to upgrade their roster, so that's nice.

    Weekend Recap

    Winning a series in New York is becoming old hat. The Twins took two of three from the Yankees in Yankee Stadium for the second year in a row. They exploded for six runs in the top of the ninth, with most of the damage being done off of the generally dominant David Robertson. Phil Hughes won his sixth game and pitched extremely well in his return to Yankee Stadium. In fact, all three starters pitched well this ...

  7. Should we be worried about Ricky Nolasco?

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    The Twins made a big splash back in December, signing Ricky Nolasco to a 4 year, $49 million contract with a team option for a fifth year. It was the largest contract the Twins had given during free agency and it marked a change in philosophy related to building a team. The Twins were no longer going to simply rely on home-grown talent and smaller signings. They wanted to sign a player who could lead their rotation for a couple of years ...

  8. Monday Morning Madness: Memorial Day 2014

    Weekend Recap

    The best thing I can say about the Giants series is that the Twins did not lose more games than they played. If they had done that, I would have been really upset/confused. The Twins didn't put up much of a fight this weekend, but the Giants are one of the best teams in baseball. Plus, San Francisco is windy. Wind is nature's biggest bully. I'm just glad the Twins escaped with their calculators.

    Weekend Recap

    I'm happy with two of three when the one the Twins lost was at the hands of Felix Hernandez. The Twins looked good this weekend and winning two of every three is a great way to win over 90 games. Not saying that will happen, but...it will probably happen.

    I know, I know, this is supposed to be a Twins blog. Really, my blog is hardly that at this point, but you know what I'm generally trying to do. Thing is, with rain, days off and my own illness, I've only caught one Twins game since last weekend. I did analyze how the Twins players look in their caps, if you're ...

  11. 5 Players the Twins gave up on waaaaaaay too early.

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Pining for the past is something we're all guilty of. It's hard to see guys like Torii Hunter, David Ortiz and Carlos Gomez enjoying success with other franchises and not wonder what could have been. When those former players are breaking out or enjoying pseudo-Hall of Fame careers, it's hard to just look the other way. Heck, this one guy keeps writing about guys like Clete Thomas and continuously linking to it. Like this link, which you can click. ...

    OHHHHH man, the Madness has returned. Normally, a return of my madness would be concerning, but in this case, it's a good thing. Every Monday I'll recap the Twins' weekend series and throw in some silly stuff at the end for the kids. Come for the analysis, stay for some muted chuckles. Let's go!

  13. 2014 Twins Predictions you can take to the bank...and read on your mobile phone becau

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    Prior to the 2013 season, I made ten Minnesota Twins predictions. Of those ten, I nailed six. Honestly, that's a pretty good success rate. However, two of the ten that I missed, I missed badly. Here's a very quick recap on my predictions from last year:

    Good: Justin Morneau will be traded. Josh Willingham will not be traded. Rich Harden will not be good. Joe Mauer will not win the AL batting title. Oswaldo Arcia, Aaron Hicks ...
