Before that glorious moment, I’d like to take a bird’s-eye view of my most compelling non-MN baseball storylines heading into the 2023 season. Let’s go division-by-division...

That’s not to say that mediocrity is good or high expectations are bad, but it’s just the simple reality of our situation. 20-some playoff losses in a row will do that for you. There’s something to be said about the thrill of being in the thick of a playoff race when the rubber meets the road in September, no...

Max Kepler has been a spring standout for the Twins. | Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports We’re two-thirds of the way through the Grapefruit League schedule. Who has stood out at the plate for the Twins? We’re less than two weeks away from real, live, regular-season baseball. We’re also roughly two-thirds of the way through the Spring Training slate. While nobody should be drawing anything resembling a conclusion based on a couple of handfuls of Grapefruit League games, we have something of a sample size now and it’s always interesting to see who has stood out...

Rival Roundup, Vol. 40: Rounding Third

Photo by Rob Tringali/WBCI/MLB Photos via Just one more round-up before the square-up. Twins Pass is on sale, the weather has more of a “disgusting rain” vibe than “unceasing snow” vibe, and the tax deadline is coming up. All these signs point to a Minnesotan spring galloping quickly over the horizon. We’re 13 days from the season opener in Kansas City, with plenty of World Baseball Classic left on the docket to tide us over.
