Featured Post: It’s Your Move Sandy

The other night Gary Cohen mentioned that the Mets currently have the highest winning percentage across their minor league affiliates in all of professional baseball. At some point the hope is it will all translate to the major league level, however, those of us who’ve studied this game for any length of time know that championship teams don’t come pre-assembled off a minor league...

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...

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...

An idea that should have been brought up sooner

Otherwise move Mauer off first and commit to Pinto and Vargas at first and DH. That is also acceptable. — Brandon Warne (@Brandon_Warne) September 10, 2014 I am linking to Brandon Warne’s tweet here to acknowledge the fact that I didn’t come up with this idea either. I think it’s tremendous though, and fully endorse it. The Twins should probably begin their turn around sooner...

WATCH: Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia Smashes 486-Foot Home Run Against White Sox

Prior to Sunday I had never heard of Minnesota Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia. Chances are I am not the only one since he's only played in 59 games this season and is hitting just .230. However, after hitting a 486-foot monster of a home run against the Chicago White Sox I bet I'm not the only one that knows his name now. Loading...

Arcia comes through as Twins end three-game skid with win over White Sox

Oswaldo Arcia decelerated into second, looked into the Twins dugout and thrust both hands in the air as if he signaled a touchdown. Well, his two-run double in the eighth inning on Saturday gave the Twins runs Nos. 6 and 7. But his gesture was more a sign of exaltation after a frustrating run of at-bats in which manager Ron Gardenhire said, “He’s trying to hit the ball 8,000...

Twins’ Oswaldo Arcia Succeeds In Destroying Bat Over His Knee (Video)

New York Mets catcher Anthony Recker and Seattle Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison, for example, both succeeded in splintering their lumber, while the likes of Bryce Harper and Carlos Gomez both failed rather miserably. Harper and Gomez should take notes from Oswaldo...
