Fantastic Fien

by iTwins on 05-22-2014 at 02:37 PM
When a team is mired in a rut of three losing seasons, it’s easy to overlook players who are achieving beyond expectations – especially when those players are relief pitchers. After all, who cares if you have a lights out right hander when the team is constantly down 6-0 by the third inning? For that reason, you could be forgiven if you’ve missed what Casey Fien has been doing over the past three years with the Twins.

Since the Twins signed Fien as a minor league free agent from the

Advanced Statistics & Broadcasts: Where Should The Two Meet?

by iTwins on 05-11-2014 at 10:29 AM
During Saturday's Fox Sports North telecast, Dick Bremer and Jack Morris were discussing the Minnesota Twins rotating crew of misfits in the the outfield. More specifically, they were talking about how injuries to Josh Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia have caused the team to play a 1B/DH hybrid in RF (Colabello) and whatever middle infielder they can find in LF (Nuñez, Escobar, Bartlett).

Dick then went on to say (I'm paraphrasing a bit here, but the context is the same): Imagine if the

Pinto's Prodigious Potential

Outside of shortstop, there may not be another position player with lower offensive expectations than catcher. The physical toll of the position forces many elite offensive players into other roles – Bryce Harper, for instance, was moved from catcher to outfielder immediately after being drafted in an effort to extend his career. Others, such as Joe Mauer or (eventually) Buster Posey are moved later into their career when the beatings sustained as a catcher threatens to shorten their playing time

Appreciating Brian Dozier

Most baseball fans love a good story. We’re suckers for the guy rising from adversity to achieve his dreams of playing at a big league level. Look to the following around Chris Colabello’s rise this season or even Andrew Albers’ call up last year and it’s plain to see – we love the underdog.

Mike Pelfrey Is Out Of Control

by iTwins on 04-24-2014 at 11:52 AM
Mike Pelfrey was far from the most popular Twins free agent signing this offseason, between the subpar 2013 numbers and the feeling that his signing prevented the Twins from pursuing other, higher upside free agents - it was tough to spin the return of Pelfrey as a net positive. Factor in the notion that the Twins bid against themselves and effectively overpaid Pelfrey with a 2 year, $11 million contract and the sour taste from Twins fan's was understandable.

From an outside perspective,
