Minnesota Twins: Miguel Sano is the first baseman Twins fans deserve

Minnesota Twins fans are a rather mercurial bunch. One minute, they’re in love with the players and the team, cheering as loudly as they can, supporting the team all season. The next minute, they’re ready to burn it all down, trade everyone, fire the whole front office, and have Jim Pohlad’s head on a stake.

Cleveland 12, Twins 3: A full squad implosion

Cleveland 12, Twins 3: A full squad implosion

The Clevelands had fun in this one. | Jordan Johnson-USA TODAY Sports This was an ugly one If you glanced at the score and saw that it was 12 to 3 and you saw an ‘L’ next to Griffin Jax’s name, you probably assumed that the poor rookie was shelled. While wasn’t exactly sharp once he reached the second time through the lineup, Jax was far from the Twins’ biggest issue on this night. He was just one of several. Jax faced only one batter above minimum through the first three innings. A pair of doubles plated the first run of the game for Cleveland in the fourth....

Game 147: Spider Guardians at Twins

Game 147: Spider Guardians at Twins

Photo by David Berding/ Any zoologists out there? Is there such a thing as a Spider Guardian? First Pitch: 6:40 pm CDT TV: Bally Sports North Radio: WCCO 830 / The Wolf 102.9 FM / TIBN / Audacy The 70-73 Spider Guardians are still in town, looking to finish the series strong after yesterday’s 7-inning doubleheader split. To do so, they’ll enlist righty Cal Quantrill, who in my opinion is one of the league’s more under-the-radar Star Wars names. They can’t all be Akil Baddoo, but I think I will convince a couple people this evening that Cal Quantrill belongs in...

Minnesota Twins: Top 5 Switch-Hitters in Twins History

Jorge Polanco is in the midst of one of the best seasons by a Minnesota Twins switch-hitter ever. His 30 homers this season are the best in team history by a switch-hitter and his 4.2 fWAR leads the team.

Minnesota Twins: Luis Arraez has proven that he belongs

The Minnesota Twins have had a disappointing season overall, but there have been a few bright spots. One has been the play of Jorge Polanco, who is having a banner season. Another has been the hitting of Luis Arraez.

Arraez and Sanó offer stark contrasts and a refresher lesson in relative value

Arraez and Sanó offer stark contrasts and a refresher lesson in relative value

Photo by Brace Hemmelgarn/Minnesota Twins/ They go about it in opposite ways, but create about the same level of offensive production Yesterday, Zach had an article here where he conducted a blind statistical comparison of Max Kepler and Miguel Sanó. Zach pointed out the two players have eerily similar batting lines over the past two seasons even though they are perceived quite differently by the fan base. When Zach’s post went up, I was most of the way through a similar thought exercise involving Sanó and a different comparable Twin — Luis Arraez. Where Kepler...

Twins 6, Cleveland 3: Back on target

Twins 6, Cleveland 3: Back on target

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports The Twins earned a split of today’s doubleheader. After losing game 1 of today’s doubleheader the Twins tasked Charlie Barnes with the start tonight. He pitched 3 scoreless innings and one not-so-scoreless inning. That inning was the 3rd, where Cleveland notched 4 hits against Barnes, 2 of them being doubles to score the game’s first 3 runs. Amed Rosario, Jose Ramirez, and Franmil Reyes each contributed an RBI and things weren’t looking great for the Twins. Surprisingly the Twins came roaring back in the 4th inning. Jorge...
