URSFAO #11--TR and Neil Huntington have a conversation.

Scene: Terry Ryan is at home, playing the Legend of Zelda on a classic NES. The phone rings... Neil Huntington: Terry, it's Neil. Terry Ryan: Hello, this is General Zod. NH: What...oh. I...

Guns, Germs and SteelBall: T.R.'s epiphany from two years in the desert.

I read Ben Reiter's column on SI this morning and he mentioned that Cleveland's schedule was extremely weak towards this last week, as they face such execrable (poopy?) pitchers such as "Jared...

Buxton Top Prospect, per Fangraphs

And Sano top five, taking into account performance and likely promotions of higher ranked prospects like Profar and Taveras. Good read, and kind of heady stuff.

The Corriean Conflict Will Never Cease!

This is for all the arm-chair geo-politcal analysts out there that correctly predicted N. Korea's current saber (sp. intended) rattling as well as Kevin Correia's solid production. Feel free to...

Objectively Discussing Drew Butera's Value

I think there are two opinions of Drew Butera: 1. He is horrible and should not be on any MLB roster, anywhere, ever. 2. He's not that bad, he just shouldn't be taking up a 25 man roster spot...

How about Parmalee to the Yankees?

Disclaimer: This is just a crazy trade proposal with no substantiated or other evidence, just pure, wild speculation on my part. With the loss of Texeira for a couple of months, do you think...

Morosi on Morneau. Great Read.

Really puts some stuff in perspective. When healthy, Justin is one of the true elites in baseball.

Twelve Angry Twins--Hope For Contention In 2013

Jack Clugman passed away in 2012. It's been noted he was the last juror from the movie version of the play "Twelve Angry Men" to die. As a near 40 year old, I remember him better as crack-coroner...

Twins To Revolutionize Baseball With Catcher-less Lineup

In an effort to keep well ahead of every trend in baseball theory, the Twins have announced a radical new plan that may have the greatest impact on the game since the transition from rocks to the...

I'm not a GM, I just play one on the internet. (Or, how the Twins contend next year.)

I' ve been working on this post for a while, predating the current Twintietown debate and even Nelson's post, so please forgive the redundancy. recently read a post by Nick Nelson (kindly...

Totally Cappstastic! This is for you CPM.

It doesn't matter if I, Toby, Aaron, and Tom Verducci (along with the rest of the blogosphere) all concur that closers and saves are overrated, the fact is coming clear--the Twins scored big time...

Terry Ryan and his Evil Genius Plan to Fix the Capps/Ramos Trade

This is quite simple really. No matter how bad Capps is, he does seem to be durable. Given the rate that closers are getting hurt/suck, which Ryan apparently foresaw, Capps' trade value is...

The "Aliens" offseason blueprint.

  The recently concluded Twins season played out remarkably similar to the movie "Aliens."  Let me enumerate some of the parallels: You had a woefully inept "Lieutenant" put in charge of a...

LOTR III: Release Date Postponed Indefinitely

The first installment of the trilogy was met with guarded optimism (although there was some concern about certain casting decisions, i.e. Nishioka as a Hobbit).  Unfortunately, LOTR II was both a...

Fri. Night Minors Report--They All Won!

Just as the Twins were sinking to new depths of suckiness, and as Roger put the finishing touches on his new Friday through Thursday Minors report, all Twins affiliates managed to win, some twice....

Ultimate Prospect Smackdown--The CFers!

The Twins may not have a great track record of developing MI's*, or strikeout pitchers**, or 3Bers, or catchers not named Mauer.  But one thing they have historically done well is develop...

LOTR Part II: The Two Mauers

Things seem to be going almost exactly as J.R.R. Tolkien predicted. Our little band of heroes was severely beaten down in Moria and almost succumbed at Helm's Deep, but Gandalf's epic return has...

The Fellowship of the Nine

The Stat-Nerds have had a lot to say lately, as have the Vultures, so I figured it was time for the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Geeks to weigh in on the current plight of the Twins. And I've found the best...

Rene Part Deux

Viva la revolution!  This could be the spark that turns the tide.  I've been waiting with baited breath, and now my answer has come:  The Twins now have THREE catchers on the 40 Man Roster who...

Just Back From the Yukon; What's Up, Eh?

Twas a good baby harp seal season.  The market for furs has been hot in Belorus; and to a lesser extent Mother Russia herself.  Been out of the loop, as they say, and I need to get myself back up...

The Paradoxical Difficulty in Developing Elite IF's

Jesse put a post up on the TT top IF prospects and it got me thinking. The Twins seem to take a lot of criticism for not 'developing' elite infielders. But how easy is it to do? It seems like...

Defending Cuddyer...and Revere

If you could somehow blend the two of them into one player, this probably wouldn't be necessary.  You'd have a speedy, switch-hitting centerfielder with a rocket arm, good pop, and one hell of an...

Best. Simpson's. Ever.

The Star Trek IV Plan: The Final Frontier

I was watching a NL playoff game one day (because that's all we get on regular tv--how does Fox NOT have the AL playoffs?) and between half-innings I'd click down a half-channel and one of the...

The Homehank Redemption

I noticed that Captain Hadley is pitching for the Yankees today.  In the stat preview picture, he even has that what me shit eating grin that he had when the police showed up at the ballpark/pen...

Morosi on Mauer vs. Harper, Shapiro vs. Boras

If you haven't read every possible article on the Mauer signing yet, add this one to your list. Of course, the bottom line is still: Joe Mauer is a good guy.

What Would Lee Have Cost the Twins?

I know it's water under the bridge, but this move by the Mariners is exactly what I was hoping the Twins would do.  Well not exactly--I was hoping they would get Halladay.  If he would have...

Roy, Ramos, and RISK, Part II

I kind of got lost in a digression about Dungeons and Dragons in Part I.  I admit, my Nerd Scale does go to 11.  But that was kind of  my point--here you have a game where a bunch of jocks hit a...

On Roy, Ramos, and RISK

I, shall we say, "enjoy" the stat side of baseball.  I liked math and science in school, but ultimately got a degree in English.  I realize stats are a very real part of the game, but for me...
