More on the new Twins philosophy

When Derek Falvey and Thad Levine took over the Minnesota Twins two years ago, us fans were curious to see how the organization would change. Initially, the revisions were rather small. Jason Castro was signed, a catcher that excelled in pitch framing. A couple coaches were swapped out. It wasn’t much, and thus many argued that the “boy geniuses” were in over their heads and weren’t going to succeed in righting the ship. However, the vehicle has kicked into gear this offseason. With the firing of manager Paul Molitor, that has brought in Rocco Baldelli from the Tampa Bay Rays...

The Yankees’ home run strategy is perfect for the playoffs

The Yankees’ home run strategy is perfect for the playoffs

In a short series, sudden offensive explosions are more important than ever If there’s one cliché in baseball that refuses to die, it’s that the game changes come playoff time. Conventional wisdom holds that teams need to “shorten up”, put the ball in play, and grind out runs in the playoffs since the pitching is so much better. Supposedly, you can’t rely on home runs. I’m someone naturally skeptical of conventional wisdom. “This is the way we’ve always done it” is the most dangerous saying in the world. I can’t help but think, especially after watching the last three...
