  1. Twins' Organization Player and Staff Birthdays List

    Did you wonder when is the Birthday of your favorite player in the Twins' Organization? Did you know that Brian Dozier and Justin Morneau shared Birthdays? So do Chris Parmelee and Nick Blackburn. And the NewBritain clubhouse will have a lot of fun on August 20th, the shared birthday of both their pitching and hitting coaches (Bobby Cuellar and Tom Brunansky). And do you know the most popular day as far as Twins' organization players and staff birthdays go? It is November 24th when 6 members ...

  3. Rosario in Centerfield yesterday.

    Found that interesting. I think he needs as much time at second as possible, but I know the Snappers want his bat in the game and probably needed to get a couple of the other infielders some work. Hope this won't be a ongoing thing as CF is not a issue in the Twins system right now.
  4. Solid first win for the Twins

    Feels good to get that first win under our belt.

    Solid outing for the Twins. It wasn't perfect, but we all know this isn't a team that going to be perfect. Pavano was good, but not great. Worst inning for him was the 5th when Bourjos got the inside-the-park home run. Willingham couldn't make the play. His defense isn't the best, and Revere might have made that catch. If Willingham continues to crush the ball, missing a catch or two doesn't matter.

    Huge games for Carroll ...
  5. Will April showers bring second half flowers?

    Original post from North Dakota Twins Fan
    Fans of the Twins are well aware of the slow start the club has gotten off to at the start the 2012 season. It seems that a segment of the fan base is worried that the Twins are falling back into the same patterns that lead to a 99-loss season in 2011. Scott Baker and Liam Hendriks have already been forced to the sidelines with injuries, there are still question marks in the bullpen, and the offense has struggled mightily at the ...
  6. Twins Bats Defeat Twins Gloves 6-5

    The Twins won their first game of the season last night as their bats defeated Jared Weaver, the Los Angeles Angels, and the Twins own defense by a score of 6-5.

    It was a victory not just for the players on the field, but for the front office and coaching staff, as it finally validated decisions they had made throughout the offseason and spring training. Those decisions, contrary to the popular view of the Twins as a fundamentally sound team, have emphasized scoring runs over solid ...
  7. 2012 Day-by-Day - April 11

    Twins get their first MLB win, overall a 4-1 day.

    Please note, I am NOT trying to step on Seth's toes at all by the day-by-days, he adds good narrative, and he knows a HELLUVA lot more than I, or anyone not employed by the Twins do about the Minor League. This blog is meant just to be used as a nice snapshot of the system on a day-by-day basis (see what I did there?). So use them as you will, I plan on adding stats starting next week, but rely on Seth for his knowledge and recaps! ...
  8. Game No. 5: A 2 Course Dinner of Beef Willingham & Chicken Parmelee

    Whew... glad to get that out of the way. This is how the Twin's are going to have to perform to win games. We will need to score 5+ runs for the most part to win a game, but at least Carl gave us some innings. The inside job by Bourjos was a knee to the nuggets, but what the heck, it all worked out. Kudos to Willingham and Parmelee for their big hits. I have been an opponent of the Willingham signing, not because I don't like him or his contract, but more so for philosophical reasons on how I think ...
  9. Wednesday Night Game Notes (including Minor Leagues)

    The Twins got Win #1 in Game #5, and that has to be a relief to all the players, coaches, the manager and the front office. As a fan, itís kind of nice as well! A very nice 6-5, come-from-behind win. At various times, Josh Willingham, Chris Parmelee, Jamey Carroll, Glen Perkins and Matt Capps played hero. Jeff Gray gets the win! Congrats to the Twins on the win.
    The minor league affiliates won three of their four games on Wednesday. In unusual fashion, two of the Twins affiliates played games ...
  10. Silver Lining on the Scott Baker News

    [Originally posted at Twins Fan From Afar]

    Will this man-child ever throw for the Twins again?
    There's no good news report today, as it was just announced that our best righty, Scott Baker, will miss the entire season ...
  11. Twins Need To Look Themselves In The Mirror

    this post was originally posted at http://troystwinsdugout.wordpress.co...in-the-mirror/

    The Twins haven't done well to start the season. They're 0-4 after losing three straight to The Baltomore Orioles and the home opener against the Angels, scoring only 6 runs compared with 20 runs allowed.

    Now that they've had an off day to assess where they're at, I think it will be interesting to find out how they will respond. Granted, ...

  12. Scott Baker Press Conference Coming Up

    Per La Velle.

    This doesn't sound good. I'll hope for the best, but it's tough to imagine a press conference with Terry Ryan sitting next to Baker, and Baker saying "I'm 100% ready for action!"
  13. The Buddy Files Vol. 1---How can this turn around?

    Here's my first shot at this. I'm assuming no one will see it, but if you do, Thanks....and sorry. I was going to post something earlier with predictions and such but then remembered I hate predictions and such. So I decided to give it a few games before I chimed in.

    I have to go at this from the only perspective I have, from the view of a fan 4 hours away. So far its pretty simple: This is bad. It hurts to watch on TV. I half expect Bert to jump from the booth to his werciful demise. ...
  14. Aaron Hicks & the Rock Cats, Twins Baseball & the Future, & the SethSpeaks Podcast

    Thus far, good things are coming out of New Britain

    [Originally published at Twins Fan From Afar]

    A few unrelated items this morning. First, if you missed it, yesterday I wrote about Alex Wimmers' first AA Rock Cats start that took place Monday night, ...
