It was another fantastic day in Twins Territory.
"How do you feel about winters in Minnesota, Ryan?" "You're joking right?"
Iím obviously talking about todayís weather in comparison to the weather that we had over the past six months. Oh, you came to read about baseball? Well, in that case, just be happy that you have a job that required you to work this afternoon. If you happened to watch the game, Iím sorry. The Aís completed their
On Tuesday, Jason Parks and the Baseball Prospectus prospect staff wrote an article assessing the industryís views on baseballís four shortstop uber-prospects: Francisco Lindor, Carlos Correa, Javier Baez, and Addison Russell. That quartet, along with Red Sox rookie Xander Bogarts, comprise the strongest crop of shortstop prospects since the trio of Alex Rodriquez, Derek Jeter, and Nomar Garciaparra debuted in the mid-90s. If youíre one of the five teams

As always, leave us your questions and/or comments.
In an interesting move, the Minnesota Twins placed Scott Diamond on waivers Wednesday, giving the other teams in the league until Thursday to make a move to claim him.
The move is interesting for several different reasons, seeing that it was not that long ago that Diamond appeared to emerge as a pitcher who could become part of the permanent rotation going forward. Diamond

To leadoff (baseball term), it occurs to me that some of my past posts have sent no small amount of ire in the direction of the Twinsí front office, and the man at the helm: Terry Ryan.
Many probably heard of his cancer diagnosis this week, and there is nothing like news like this that immediately points out how trivial baseball is within the grand scheme of things. All reports
Q: How many hipsters does it take change a light bulb (craft a social commentary about what Richard Shermanís outburst, and our reactions to it, really means)?
A: Itís a really obscure number, I doubt youíve heard of it (at least one more).
So, unless you are unaware that technology exists, you probably know that Richard Sherman said some stuff Sunday night after the Seattle

This week (Jan 3th to Jan 11th, 2014) over 130 guys (and four women) suited up in a clubhouse where real major leaguers spend their spring training and pretended to be ballplayers for an entire week. We were at the Minnesota Twins Fantasy Camp hanging out with past Twins greats that included the likes of: Bert Blyleven, Rod Carew, Tony Oliva, Frank Viola, Tom Brunansky, Kent Hrbek, Mickey Hatcher, Greg Gagne, Gene Larkin, Frank Quilici, Juan Berenguer, Ron Coomer, Rick Aguilera, Tim Laudner,

Recently I had the opportunity to interview MLB.com senior writer Jonathan Mayo about the Minnesota Twins farm system. Since joining MLB.com, heís produced an annual top 100 prospect list, several shows on MLB radio, and Around the Minors, a radio show that is all about prospects. In part one of the three part series, I talk to him about the Twins farm system as a whole, where certain prospects are on his top 100 list, and whether this year will be different for Kyle Gibson & Aaron Hicks.
It has been 79 days since the last time I wrote about the Twins. There are several reasons for this hiatus, a new job and a move to OKC chief among them. But it also had a lot do with the team itself, and the fact that there is only so much you can say about a team that has racked up 291 losses over the past three seasons (!!!). In a world where seemingly every baseball fan has his own blog, there are only so many articles to write about Byron Buxton and

After a modest season at Class A Ceder Rapids, Minnesota Twins pitching prospect, J.O. Berrios, will not participate in the Puerto Rican Winter League this offseason; instead, the youngster will get himself ready for next season.
The 19-year old recorded an 18.00 run average in two relief outings for Puerto Rico at the World Baseball Classic, striking out Robinson Cano. But playing in that tournament put Berrios a couple of weeks behind once he returned to Minnesota camp and
I have stopped using a physical calendar for sometime now. Mainly because I have a smartphone and I always want to have the calendar with me. Anyway this past year for the holiday season my own father bought me a Minnesota Twins Calendar. Then on Twitter this week I came upon the Mets Season calendar http://www.amazinavenue.com/2013/9/2...-mini-calendar
That got me to thinking is my Minnesota Twins Calendar just as worse? I will break it down month by month.

When Trevor Crowe hit that winning run in the ninth for Houston on Wednesday, Twins fans can be justified for looking for someone to blame. Having clawed our way back into the game with singles in the eighth and ninth, all reliever Brian Duensing had to do was take down three men Ė he got hit twice.
We fans betting MLB World Series are right to be disappointed with Duensing. In fact, the finger could also point to Liam Hendriks for letting three
