Twins Continue Impressive Win Streak

After handing the undefeated Kansas City Royals their first two losses of the season, it seemed like the Minnesota Twins came back down to earth against the Cleveland Indians and reigning Cy Young award winner Corey Kluber. Then the sixth inning happened. Kluber was perfect through five innings before Oswaldo Arcia led off the inning with a simple base hit, then Cleveland would proceed...

C-Cap Recap: Perfection to Dejection

If ever a baseball game were capable of halting and reversing an entire city’s blossoming springtime enthusiasm—sending every new leaf burrowing right back into its bud and every twittering songbird fleeing for Florida—it would be tonight’s 3-2 Indians loss to the Minnesota Twins. Hyperbole? Maybe. But it’s 12:24 on a Friday night, and much like how Britt McHenry feels...

Either way, it’s an opportunity to prove how smart you are to strangers and friends. Who doesn...

Oswaldo Arcia and the Relentless 3-0 Hack

Last week, I wrote a post in which I drew a comparison between Oswaldo Arcia and phenom George Springer. All things considered, the two are far from similar players, but this was strictly an offensive comparison. Even then, it wasn’t perfect, but it was something! Springer and Arcia had the two worst in-zone contact rates […]

Oswaldo Arcia, 2015 Fantasy Sleeper

"I'm glad I'm getting some company." Easy there, Brett Lawrie. Oswaldo Arcia is only up to post-post-hype status. Still has a long way until he has nine posts before his hype. "Are you sure he didn't have post-op surgery?" No, Lawrie, now run along and into a wall. Arcia you later! Thanks, pun punch and your floating fruit!

Player Profile #175: Oswaldo Arcia | OF | MIN

In 788 PA across 200 games, Oswaldo Arcia has 34 HR, 100 RBI, and — wait for it — 244 strikeouts. The power is undeniable, but at about 1.25 punchouts per game, Arcia is far from a finished product. And with identical 31.0% strikeout rates in both of his major league seasons, progress seems to have been slow. But that cursory analysis is unfair to Arcia. He was just 23 years...

Where’s Oswaldo?

If you've been scouring all your picture books for a proper fantasy hitter in the final week, look no further. Oswaldo Arcia was 3-for-4 with his 19th home run and two RBI last night. Arcia has a nice little six-game hitting streak, with four homers in that stretch. To be fair, however, he's also sat four games in that span with a tweaked muscle in his upper back. Injury concerns...

Another losing season for Twins, but some glimpses of hope

MINNEAPOLIS -- With four more losses, the Minnesota Twins will be losers of 90 games for the fourth straight season. It's been a fall from grace for a team that won the American League Central division six times in a nine-year span. Yet while 2014 has been another lost season in the Twin Cities, this year's 90-plus losses have a different feel than what took place from 2011-13. The...
