Wolves Third Team in Proposed 'Melo Deal


Wolves give up Brewer and a 1st, receive Curry's expiring and Randolph. Deal not that close, but working in right direction.

Twins Will Remove Trees from Batters' Eye


Shadows from the trees beyond the CF wall distracted batters in 2010. The team may relocate the trees within Target Field.

Pavano Suitors Think He's Coming Back To Minnesota


According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, other teams trying to sign Carl Pavano are getting the vibe that he's headed back to the Twins. This is good news.


Offseason Blueprint for 2010-2011

My approach is to make the team more athletic, while still maintaining the power threat that the lineup has added in 2009 and 2010. Many models for the Twins’ offseason include spending gobs of...

Mariners Wanted Hicks in Return for Lee


Buster Olney reports (via Charley Walters) that the Mariners insisted on Aaron Hicks in a potential package for Cliff Lee, and the Twins would not give him up. Also, Olney believes the Twins to be front runners for Greinke's services, but only if they give up Hicks. (Insider required)

When the Twins picked up Michael Cuddyer's 2011 team option on November 8, 2009, there was a decidedly mixed response. I had not yet joined TT, but the response here was overwhelmingly positive. I...


Souhan's Offseason To-Do List: Hit-and-Miss

Ozzie Won't Like This


Lillibridge in line to buy "Halo: Reach" at midnight on the eve of the end of their season. Amazing.

Neyer's "Beane Count" Statistic


This is a stupid, made-up stat, but the Twins are fairly easily leading the league. This is staggering: the Twins have only walked 315 opposing batters. The next three teams? Philadelphia, (357), Seattle (387), and St. Louis (398). The Twins have walked 42 less hitters than the team who has surrendered the second-to-least. Unbelievable.


My Letter to Trey Kerby from Yahoo!'s Ball Don't Lie Blog

It has been pretty slow in the NBA this week, but this morning's Wolves Updates from SG included a link to an article from Yahoo!'s Ball Don't Lie blog by Trey Kerby, and his article genuinely...

Fox to start, Burnett and Delaney also on the way


Via La Velle E. Neal III. He says Morneau is likely going on the 60-day DL in order to make room for Fox, but since he's been hurt so long he could be added easily to the roster later on.


The Inaccuracy of ESPN's Rumor Central

Yesterday, ESPN's Rumor Central speculated that the Twins would spend big in the upcoming offseason. I would not guess this to be the case, unless you count retaining the team's current...

P.A.: "...Wolves and one of the game's best will be tied together..."

This is from Paul Allen at KFAN's Rube Chat: not ground-breaking but it will be favors or johnson if we keep the four. zilcho chance the select cousins. those opinions are 100 percent accurate. And...
