2030 headline? 'Twins to honor Arcia during retirement tour with Red Sox'

The news Thursday night that the Twins designated Oswaldo Arcia for assignment was met with some puzzlement among Twins fans. The basic premise is fair: is there not a place on the roster, or at least in the organization, for a just-turned-25-year-old with a .732 OPS in nearly 1,000 plate appearances? After all: 1) That 1,000 plate appearance threshold is often cited as the point at which hitters start to figure things out. 2) Though OPS isn’t the only statistical measurement worth considering, there is this: the Twins going into 2016 considered Brian Dozier and Trevor Plouffe to be...

Ricky Nolasco.  3 runs in 7 and 2/3 innings is staff Cy Young at this point. Trevor Plouffe.  RBI and a 2-out double in the 8th that keyed...

Rant by Padres executive makes Twins seem timid by comparison

Twins owner Jim Pohlad uttered the line of the year (so far) when he referred to the team’s struggles as a “total system failure.” General Manager Terry Ryan wasn’t too far behind when he concluded a couple weeks ago that, “We’re in dire straits here.” Trevor Plouffe even gets points for noting the offensively challenged Twins “haven’t gotten a hit since Moby Dick was a minnow.” So it’s not like the Twins have been timid when talking about their struggles … but they sure do seem timid by comparison when you read the comments unleashed by Padres executive chairman Ron...
