From Keith Law:
Minnesota's Kennys Vargas, who stood around first base but is awful over there, showed no ability to cover the outer half or to handle offspeed stuff inside, though he did hit a...
I had to read this twice to make sure I had it correctly. Every one of his 6 outs this season has come via a strikeout. Besides his first outing where he walked four guys in a row (all of which later...
I've just plain enjoyed watching this team more than last year. Especially when Santana was playing. More exciting in general. Most people hate September when the team is out of the running but I...

Isn't that what Kansas City did to get James Shields? They gave up their top rated minor league hitter for an "Ace" when they thought they were on the verge of returning to contention.
I would partially agree. His first step is not super quick. His feet don't look very light when he runs. Once he gets moving he's pretty fast, but it takes a bit to get up to speed. I will say, he...

I was looking up the upcoming Vanderbilt vs. Louisville college world series match-up and found this nice little video. "Louisville's Nick Burdi 'pissed' about draft." Apparently he didn't think too...

I just heard on the radio broadcast that Mitch Moreland is out for 6 months after having ankle surgery. Morales can play some 1B. What if the Twins were to flip Morales to the Rangers for a prospect?...
I just check his current stats at milb and over the last 10 games his BA was higher than his OBP. I'm guess one sacrifice and ZERO walks over 10 games. It's hard to argue with a .390 BA, 10 game...

I think I fail to recognize this thing called "hype." If they don't have it, they're worth nothing. If they got it, sell everyone else.

Kris Johnson - I don't get the hate. Left who can hit 93-94. Killing AAA. Barely got a cup of coffee with the Pirates. He's older for a prospect. So what. Stick him in the bullpen and maybe he hits...

Here's to hoping for a home sweep of the Brew Crew. Two of the losses to the rangers were one run. Too bad one of those couldn't have gone the other way. I'll just blame it on Kubel....

I went to the Red Wings box score this weekend to check May's stat line and realized that there's not a single position player on that team that I'd want playing with the Twins. The pitching staff is...

Previous 15 Games:
2-1 Red Sox
I had that stretch plus the Dodgers and Orioles before it as a defining time period. Scouting reports on guys...

Parms is currently on a 1 for 17 streak dating back to May 14th, all on the homestand. Teams already adjusting to him? Seattle looked like they were busting him in a lot, something he likes to swing...
It did not. It's a rather short little read made to allow the mainstream to laugh at the debacle that is the Twins OF right now. Is it super thorough? No. Is it effective? Basically. You could...

Deduno has followed Pelfrey in 4 of 5 starts. The one game he didn't...Deduno pitched the day prior. Why don't we just switch their roles?
03-25-2014, 04:00 PM
I guess we'll find out if he is. He's officially made the team. We must have our sites site on the K record.
Just announced that Twins informed Kubel he made the team.

That's a cool video. Mr. Perkins seems like a fun guy to have around.
Glen is a funny name without the Perkins behind it. It'd be cool it the fans could come up with a final strike of the game chant...

I was left wondering if that double that went just over his head would've been caught if anyone else was out there. Granted it was hit pretty hard, but it just ate him up. People have been very...

Dozier looked pretty good
Pinto...tough day making good contact
Arcia...same as Pinto, but from L side
Colabello was ok. Still has holes, but better looking than last year
03-23-2014, 01:21 PM
Eduardo Escobar just took over in center. I can't tell who's in left. It might be Herrmann. It's definitely not Parms. Too skinny...and right handed. Bartlett is at 3rd I believe.

I stopped using nexdef last year and just switched to using Chrome. It ran better that way. It's been working pretty well this year. I just watched the last game on my PS3, and that worked well....

8 of the 9 Phil's hits are on fastballs so far
03-23-2014, 12:38 PM
I will argue on the decision part for the first throw. It was so bad that the announcers thought they might get hit. Who knows what he was actually trying to do. Definitely trying hard to impress I...
