2012 Trade Value: Should the Twins Have Anyone in the Top 50?

Dave Cameron at Fangraphs is counting down his top 50 trade values across all of MLB. In 2011, not a single Minnesota Twin mad the list. Does anyone have a chance this year?

What Can the Twins Expect This Year in the Field?

Last year, according to UZR, the Twins defense ended up right at league average. In 2012, only three of last year's opening day position players are expected to start on Friday, so what can we...

What Should We Expect From the Twins Bullpen in 2012?

Game 153: Seattle Mariners (64-89) at Minnesota Twins (59-93)

Angels 5, Twins 1: Ervin Santana Follows up No-Hitter with Complete Game

Denard Span's return to the Twins lineup was welcome, but Brian Duensing giving up two home runs and five runs was not.

Game 109: Twins at Angels

As far as I'm concerned, the most important part of tonight's game is Denard Span's return to the lineup. Thank you, Bill Smith, for not trading Span for a reliever...I suspect we'll be happy we...
