Sources: Your dad will not pronounce ‘Schoop’ correctly until well into 2019

“We haven’t seen a situation like this since the Krzyzewski Incident of 1986.” The Twins’ acquisition of former Oriole/Brewer second baseman Jonathan Schoop received mostly positive reviews on Thursday, with a relatively inexpensive contract ($7.5 million for one year) for a spot that needed filling, and the hope that he’ll return to his 2017 form. The reaction was more subdued at your childhood home, as sources are saying your dad, Jeff, will butcher Schoop’s last name well into the 2019 MLB season. “Pa loves the Twins, but he’s terrible with names,” said Julie, your...

Thursday Twins: Get ready for the Winter Meetings

Could the Twins win the AL Central in 2019? Some folks think so, but there is a lot to be done in the mean time. MLB’s Cut4 is already one of my favorite baseball-related corners of the internet, but they really hit this one out of the park. They believe the Twins will win the AL Central in 2019. This is partly due to the crumbling of Cleveland’s empire, but largely because they see a couple young Twins as potential break-out candidates. I hope it comes to pass, but what do you think? In order to get to that division crown, the Twins will definitely need to add some pieces. Seth Stohs...
