    Joe Mauer wonders why everyone is lined up on the left side of the outfield.This Joe Mauer vitriol has gotten out of hand.

    Fans and media members alike are taking shots at him over his lack of production at the conclusion of just the season's second month of play.

    Did you hear that the Twin Cities will have a new Joe Mauer-themed ...

ID:	7528The six-foot-two Aaron Nola might not fire the fastest bullets among this year’s draft class but the right-handed junior out of LSU might be the most major league ready arm. But is a pitcher the organization's highest priority?

    Who is this guy?

    Nola, a graduate of Catholic High School in Baton Rouge, LA (that’s French for “Red Stick”), was intriguing of a prospect enough after his senior year of high school that the Toronto Blue Jays selected ...

ID:	7451With just a few days remaining before the Twins were to travel to Chicago to begin the 2014 season, Chris Parmelee got the sickening news that his services would not be needed a the major league level. Out of options, the Twins were willing to expose him to waivers and risk losing him to an organization. As an additional gut punch, all of the other organizations in baseball said “eh, no thanks”.

    Shortly after receiving the news at Hammond Stadium Parmelee ...

  7. Issues in the Outfield

    The Indians’ David Murphy should send the Minnesota Twins’ front office and coaching staff a bottle of champagne. After all, the struggling left-handed outfielder hast just six doubles this season but two of those came courtesy of the Twins when they have infielders positioned in the outfield.

    While the 2014 Twins infield numbers have flourished, the outfield has languished.

    The Twins’ outfield was a defensive liability last year. In 2013, they posted an unsightly -35.3 ...

ID:	7389Trevor Plouffe was essentially an afterthought this winter viewed as a third base placeholder until Miguel Sano takes the position from him. By the grace of the inelasticity of an elbow ligament, Plouffe's job security increased considerably. Sano's misfortune would be Plouffe's godsend.

    And, to his credit, the 27-year-old has made the most of this opportunity.

    After several seasons of mishandling the hot corner and minimal offensive contributions, ...

    That’s not anything new but it makes you wonder if the fumes from the garbage burner are causing pitchers to simply lob the ball into the strike zone. As of Tuesday, the Twins were owners of the bottom three strikeout rates in the American League.

With Joe [Mauer] moving to first, we were willing to sacrifice some offense ...
