Twinsights: Family a key factor in Josh Willingham’s baseball future

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Ask Josh Willingham if he has decided whether to play beyond this season, and the Twins slugger gives a thoughtful pause. “I could play five more years or two,” Willingham, 35, said recently. “I don’t know. Obviously the family thing is a big part. We have three kids. They enjoy being around the clubhouse too.” This is the family trip for the Twins, which means Willingham and wife Ginger have their three young boys, ages 2 through 7, in tow. The Willingham clan has been more visible this year in the Twins clubhouse as the veteran left fielder closes out a th......

Twins trade rumors: Suzuki, Willingham, Correia, Duensing, Fien

This afternoon's daily wrap courtesy of opinions from around the interwebs. I'll keep flipping back and forth between the content dashboard and Twitter in between sentences, but as of right now the Twins have yet to make a follow-up trade to the Kendrys Morales to Seattle maneuver. Here's what some of the best and brightest have for you today. LEN III had a nice overnight update, including how the front office will function this week as it handles the trade deadline and a road trip simultaneously. He outlines the situations of Kurt Suzuki, Josh Willingham, and Kevin Correia, but he also...

Monday Twins trade rumors: Josh Willingham, Kurt Suzuki

Let's jump right into the speculation pool on a Monday morning, shall we? Yankees interested in Josh Willingham The Yankees may actually prefer Willingham to Marlon Byrd or Alex Rios, perhaps partly because of Willingham's reasonable $7 million salary and status as a free agent after the season... It's not just Willingham that the Bombers are checking out, but as Heyman points out there are a couple of things working in his favor. Hammer is hitting .219/.361/.421 in 57 games, including ten home runs. Why it makes sense At a surprising 54-50, the Yankees are just four games behind the...

Twins at the MLB Trade Deadline: who replaces the departed?

Twins at the MLB Trade Deadline: who replaces the departed?

The Twins haven't traded anyone yet. But if/when they do, who will the team call up to take their place(s)? Nothing has moved in terms of the Twins and the rumor mill, one week in advance of the MLB trade deadline. Josh Willingham, Kevin Correia, Kurt Suzuki, and Kendrys Morales are all still on the team, and we haven't seen their names attached to anything other than guesswork. But if Minnesota does move one of their trade chips, who could the team call upon to replace the dearly departed? Trade candidate: Kurt SuzukiCall up candidates: Chris Herrmann, Josmil Pinto I think it's easy to...

Recap: Willingham Plays Hero As The Twin End A 3 Game Skid

Josh Willingham 8th inning home run saves the Twins and Minnesota picks up their first victory of the 2nd half. After being swept by the Rays to open the second half of the season, Minnesota defeated the Cleveland Indians by the hammer of Josh. It was Casey Fien coughing up the lead in top of the 8th inning when pinch-hitting Michael Brantley laced a one-out double. Nick Swisher would ground out moving Brantley to 3rd, and Roberto Perez drove in Brantley tying the game. It was then  int the bottom of the 8th, when Josh Willingham's launched one into the left field bleachers and retook the...

Willingham's homer powers Twins past Cleveland Indians, 4-3

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Cleveland Indians were mounting another comeback, and the bullpen was holding strong. Just one off-target slider was the end of that, when Josh Willingham's tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning sent the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory Monday night. Kurt Suzuki had a two-run double among his three hits, Trevor Plouffe hit an RBI double and the Twins beat the Indians at home for the first time in more than 11 months.

Twins Trade Rumors: Willingham a fit for Reds, Royals, Mariners?

Jim Bowden thinks the Reds, Royals, and Mariners are good fits for Josh Willingham, and even throws out who the Twins could get in return from all three teams. Jesse takes a closer look. The Twins are unlikely to get much closer to .500 by July 31, which means they're going to be in the clear position of "seller" at the trade deadline. That's not much of a surprise, nor is it a surprise that Josh Willingham is one of the team's best trade assets. He's an expiring contract of a mid-30s veteran who has been productive in spite of his batting average. Former baseball General Manager and...
