Time for Twins to promote Pinto

Josmil Pinto entered Spring Training as the favorite to be named the Minnesota Twins backup catcher but multiple injuries and a strong showing from Chris Herrmann forced the team to have Pinto begin the year in Triple-A. It’s time for the Twins to revisit that decision and promote Pinto to the Major League roster. Herrmann has been almost an automatic out in his occasional appearances...

Twins Roster Preview - Hitter guys

With the depressing but not terribly surprising news that the Twins sent all the interesting young people back down to the minors and kept a bunch of lame-o veterans on the big league roster, I suppose it's time to turn my thoughts to baseball.  Also, there's a 75% chance I hate the college basketball national champion (actually probably more like 98%) so I'm going to ignore that...

Deep Impact: Dynasty League Warm Bodies

On Razzball Radio last week, where you finally got to see my perfectly circumferenced face, that looks like almost any chubby latino catcher that you can think of (to name a couple: Ramon Castro, Josmil Pinto), I got into my win-now approach. I traded high impact prospects (Gregory Polanco and Anthony Rendon) for a more immediate influence, (Robinson Cano). I often wind up with...

Twins' Pinto showing off power, patience at plate

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have hit 11 home runs in 11 games at Target Field this year. The two longest blasts came off the bat of young Josmil Pinto.

Twins Tuesday: Minnesota taking advantage of Pinto's bat

MINNEAPOLIS -- When Josmil Pinto debuted as a September call-up last season, he tore the cover off the ball. The young Twins catcher batted .342 with four homers and 12 RBI in a small, 21-game sample size. Tuesday's game against Toronto marks Pinto's ninth game of the 2014 season, as he's split time between designated hitter and backing up catcher Kurt Suzuki. It's still early, but...
