Twins Rubes

Twins Rubes is 4 brothers that grew up in the northwest corner of Minnesota, living and dying with every pitch that came from the fingertips of guys like Frank Viola, Scott Erickson, Brad Radke, Johan Santana, and Greg Brummett (who??). We thought it would be cool to start writing about anything and everything Twins as we go through the ups and downs of a 163 game season (that's how long the season is now, right?). We will do our best to come up with interesting tidbits and angles to wet your Twins appetite. You can find our blog at twinsrubes.blogspot.com and follow us on TWITTER @twinsrubes.

    The following is dedicated specifically to baakre's mother-in-law, a.k.a. Nick Punto's #1 Fan.

  3. The Book on Jamey Carroll

    Original post from Twins Rubes.

    Newcomers are always a little intriguing around this time of the year - especially after a disappointing season like 2011. This year Josh Willingham, Joel Zumaya, Ryan Doumit, Jason Marquis, and Jamey Carroll bear the newcomer flag into Target Field. With the shortstop position being such a desperate need after the fail that was Tsuyoshi Nishioka last season, Carroll is the one the Twins chose to jump out of the free agent pile and save the day this
