Twins Players of the Week

Rate this Entry
Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch

The Twins are 2-4 in this early season, after being swept in their first series at Baltimore and winning the series against one of the AL darlings, the LA Angels at the home opener at Target Field, 2-1. This series win is very hopeful, because if they Twins win 60-70% of their series, they will be in the post-season. They stand at 50% right now and winning the Rangers' series, will put them at 66%, which is right on course.

A position player and a pitcher stood above and beyond the Twins' peers this week and they are the Twins' players of the week.

Position player: Josh Willingham:

.409/.458/1.000 4 HR, 7 RBI, 1 2B, 1 BB, 5 K, (24 PA)

Pitcher: Glen Perkins:

.000 ERA, 0.545 WHIP, 2 H, 0 BB, 6 K (3.2 IP)

    Maybe you could add minor league players to this and make it a weekly posting. I think many of us who love the game and are interested in our farm but don't have the time to follow it as much as we'd like -- would love it.

    I will probably do it weekly for the Majors. I could do the minors as well but Seth does a great job with that. What I do as a monthly feature is "who is hot in the Minors", which lists the Twins' prospects who are performing the best year to date. I will probably have the first one up in about a week or 2 or so to give the pitchers enough time to build innings. Thanks!
