It's October 1, 2014 and the Minnesota Twins have exceeded all expectations to capture the AL Central title with a record of 91-71. Let's take a look at how this happened.
Minnesota Twins - The...

You're probably right. Even still, I hope TR/Antony have thrown out something like that out there.

If they'd take Willingham and Mastro for Brad Miller (or Kyle Seager), we should do it. Seattle has too many SS. I like Danny Santana but Miller or Seager could handle short and provide a lot of...

It's all context. You can show some attitude if you're a really good player or you play on a good team. It's like in football. Say a team is up by 21, and a DE hammers a back for a loss then...

The more I thought about this the past couple days, the more my anger over it subsided. If Sano was opposed to it in November and Dr. Andrews recommended rest, there was no way they were doing the...

Anybody else getting crappy audio? I sounds like the mic is bad, or they're talking too close. Anybody else?

They wouldn't have had to force anything. If they would have communicated the fact that they were not going to put Sano in the show without being able to make certain throws, he would have gladly had...

There's a big difference between a sore elbow and a partially torn UCL. Yeah, I'd say any 3B with a significant UCL tear should get it taken care of at or near the end of the year.
Based on the...

Raise your hand if you've played third base. I have. You have to make throws from odd angles all the time. That puts a lot of stress on your elbow. This was an issue last year. They knew about it. So...

What's invasive about fixing a partially torn ligament you're going to need healthy for the next 18 years?

Tell the agent, that's fine (you can opt not to have the surgery) if you'd rather take the chance of starting your client's service time clock in 2015 or 2016 as opposed to 2014. We'd love to have...

I'm with you. He's the godfather of baseball player's elbows, but he gives you a medical opinion and you need to make a decision based on what's best for your organization. I would have asked him to...

The Twins knew there were problems with his elbow last year. This is another example of poor mgmt on the Twins part. Even if the doc says he doesn't "require" TJ surgery because he only has a partial...
Never underestimate the power of the contract year. I'd take the over on 20 HR based on this fact alone, not to mention the fact that there is a serious lack of available power hitters coming through...

Nate Freiman pops into my mind, speaking of this topic. He has no business being on a typical MLB roster. Coming into 2013, his age 26! season, he had never played above AA. The dude is 6'8" and as...

Awesome event, thanks for doing this John, Aaron, Parker, Seth, and Brock (sorry if I left anyone out)!

Questions for the Panel:
Dave St. Peter: What is a day or week in the life of DSP like?
Scott Erickson: Which pitcher from today's game reminds him of himself?
"What's he been up to lately?"

Wow, those are amazing splits and it underscores one of the big faults to the Twins hitting philosophy. For the most part, Twins hitters seem to guess very rarely. I'd like to seem them guess a lot...
I have some pretty strong feelings on the matter.
It is obvious that Gardy and his staff must go. TR should be demoted to head of scouting or player development. Here's why this is the only...
The same! And I'm back in the homeland after a decade up north. Unfortunately the internet ate my old username/postings, but I'm all about fresh starts these days.
Good to see LNP is still at it... here's a link to a video of him sliding head first on a hit to the outfield.
