Mets360 MLB Project: My week as Twins GM

Lately you’ve probably seen a couple of articles talking about a group project we’ve been doing, where we got to be the GM of a team and do a simulated offseason.  I was lucky/cursed enough to get the Minnesota Twins to be my team. You see, while the Twins have struggled and their payroll has declined over the past few seasons, they have the best farm system in all of baseball...

Links of the Day 10/25/14

Rough day around the Minnesota sports world, especially for college football fans. Tom Izzo wants to pump you up (or he has started doing drugs) Here’s some fictional NFL slogans.  Baseball fielding statistics are weird. Mike Napoli, the best fielding first baseman in the AL! Also, the only top 3 player for the Twins was Trevor Plouffe. Take THAT narrative! SCOREBOARD Football...

Top 20 3rd Basemen for 2014 Fantasy Baseball

Third base was far from an epic fail like something JayWrong would have a GIF for. There were a good ten 3rd basemen and another handful that could’ve covered your corner infidel slot. The problem is after the top twelve, the 3rd basemen fall off the map like a 12th century explorer. Here’s you, “Hey, I’m gonna go to India heading west.” You’re whistling, everything...

Twins' Plouffe: I ran two red lights to say goodbye to Ron Gardenhire

The Minnesota Twins parted ways with long-time manager Ron Gardenhire on Monday, and it wasn't your typical dismissal. There was the team press release, which avoided the word "fired." There was Gardenhire showing up at the press conference announcing his own departure, reinforcing that it was a mutual decision and saying he still plans to root for the team. There was...

Minnesota Twins Phil Hughes’ Record-Setting Season

2014 has been another rough year for the Minnesota Twins, who will miss the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season. Still, there were some bright spots. Brian Dozier emerged as a solid all-around player, Trevor Plouffe had a nice season, and Danny Santana hit .319/.355/.477 in 97 games at the shortstop position. But, the most impressive year of all was had by Phil Hughes, who...

Plouffe was consistent on offense, greatly improved on defense in 2014

Before a broken forearm ended his season Wednesday with four games to play, Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe was asked to give himself a letter grade for the year he had in 2014. "A B minus. I think I did OK," said Plouffe, who just completed his fifth big-league season with Minnesota. "I think that there's a lot of room for improvement on both sides of the ball...

The Minnesota Twins have had a rough season, winners of just 67 games entering Wednesday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Plouffe delivers, Twins post another narrow win

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Trevor Plouffe of old might have let his 10th inning error eat at him. His two strikeouts? Those might have lingered, too. But the 2014 edition of Plouffe has been more consistent at the plate and has separated missed plays in the field from his at-bats. Such was the case Friday against Cleveland when Plouffe delivered a walk-off single to lift the Twins to a 5...

Boxscore Breakdown #140: Not making it look easy – Angels 7, Twins 6

Another win for the Angels, but they once again made it look much harder than it had to be. Not to complain too much since they did win and did expand their lead in the AL West, but it sure would be nice to see them have a few nice, comfortable wins against these weak teams. With 22 games left, they are running out of time to convince us they are firing on all cylinders headed into...

Twins notch milestone homer despite setback

There weren't many bright spots in the Twins' 9-1 loss Friday to Baltimore. In fact, arguably the only bright spot was a solo home run by Minnesota third baseman Trevor Plouffe to get the Twins on the scoreboard in the top of the seventh inning. Plouffe's 11th homer of the year was relatively meaningless in the grand scheme of Friday's game, but it was an historic...
