Head over to Twins Centric to read an in-depth article about Jason Kubel’s lack of production early this season. Personally, I think it’s not much more than limited sample size and the season still being young. Twins head to KC after winning their the first 5 series of the season. Can they make it 6? Let’s see […]

Today, the newest Twin Orlando Hudson sticks his foot in his mouth. According to Jeff Passan, Hudson hints at racism being a key element in unsigned free agents like Jermaine Dye. “You see guys like Dye without a job.  Guy with [27 home runs and 81 RBIs] and can’t get a job. Pretty much sums […]

Three decisions I’d like to second guess. 1. Leaving Blackburn in to start the 8th after he’s shown he didn’t have his best stuff 2. Bringing in Mijares with runners on – Mijares hasn’t shown he has his stuff this year yet. Duensing, Crain, Guerrier would have been better picks. 3. Obvious one, sending Hardy. […]

Many Twins fans are excited to see if Francisco Liriano can bounce back from a horrible year last year and regain any semblance of his amazing 2006 season, so the opening game in the White Sox series had a little extra interest – especially with the Twins offense coming off a 10 run victory and […]

Another good game last night. Pavano looked like Cy-vano, and pitched out of some jams. Morneau and Hardy with the pop again. Rauch gives up a run but gets the save. Thome gets the start and gets 3 Ks – not what we’re looking for when he takes the place of Kubel in the lineup. Not too much […]

Great game all around last night. If you could duplicate a game, that would be an ideal contest to emulate. We got quality start from Blackburn, solid bullpen pitching – including a 1-2-3 9th from Rauch – and some HRs from the already impressively potent lineup. I expect to see a lot of games like this. Solid […]

It was a rough first start for Baker. As I mentioned yesterday, he had a tendency to leave the ball up. It’s pretty clear he had some nerves/excitement going in that first inning, it was pretty tough to watch. And as usual, the walks kill you. The game was a lot closer than the final […]

Twins fans have a lot to be excited for this year with the reigning AL MVP Mauer locked up for another 9 years, a brand-new amazing ballpark, additions of Thome, Hudson, and Hardy. Baseball is going to be fun to watch. Being at the first exhibition game at Target Field reaffirmed my decision to get […]

I got some great shots of Target Field from my good friend  who was able to tour Target Field today. He wanted to give me a chance to share with everyone. Check them out! Thanks Lee!

After a mediocre 2007 season at AAA, the Twins weren’t convinced that Denard Span was the man to take the reigns from Torii Hunter in center. The phrase “playing angry” has been used to describe Span’s mentality since then. And if that’s what it takes to motivate him – it seems to have worked. When […]
