Obsessed with: Minnesota Twins, fantasy baseball, late night Food Network shows, snooty/overpriced meals, becoming a beer snob, poker, trying to watch every television show Netflix has to offer, spending as much time as I can outside when it's between 40 and 70 degrees.

Twins 'Pen Is Dominant, Cheap & Not Going Anywhere

While trading Glen Perkins would unquestionably be an unpopular decision, the Twins could get a king's ransom in exchange based on what teams have been willing to surrender for other relievers.

The Other Twins All-Star

23

Joe Mauer and Glen Perkins both (deservedly) made the American League All-Star team this season, but there's another All-Star who's giving plenty of reason to be excited.

The Tough Signs in Thursday's Draft

We know quite a bit about the names at the top of the draft, but here are some names that could slip due to signability and injuries.

Is Promoting Kyle Gibson Worth It?

18

The Twins could potentially save more than $10M in the long run by waiting three to four more weeks to call up Kyle Gibson. Should they throw that out to give him a few extra starts when they're...

Twins Bullpen Defying Home Run Odds

9

The Twins' bullpen has helped keep them in enough games to maintain a .500 record through the month of April, but they need to do a better job of keeping the ball on the ground to continue that...

When is it Time to Worry About Brian Dozier?

61

Brian Dozier's mimicry of Drew Butera's offensive game dates back to last May at this point... when should worry start to sink in?

Twins (Maybe/Sorta/Possibly) Interested In Harang?

30

Twins Acquire Guy You've Probably Never Heard Of

Do the Twins Have Any Extension Candidates?

39

ESPN's top prospect guru and former Blue Jays front office official Keith Law says only the Cardinals have a more complete farm system in terms of impact and depth than the Twins do.

Twins Want Saunders on One-Year Deal

35

The Twins like Joe Saunders but appear unwilling to give the lefty more than one guaranteed year. At this point in the offseason, that's the correct approach.

36

Since there's not any actual Twins news, here's some speculation and musing that likely will be rendered irrelevant in the near future. Happy offseason!

81

There's going to be an open competition for the Twins' center field job come Spring Training, and it sounds like Ron Gardenhire is hoping Aaron Hicks' days in the Minor Leagues are done.

37

A look at two very different types of gambles the Twins can make to improve their middle infield in 2013 and beyond.

27
