Is there a role left for Robbie Grossman in 2019?

The Minnesota Twins may not have many tough decisions when it comes to their current arbitration eligible players, but Robbie Grossman may become one. As the Minnesota Twins imploded and had an awful 2018 season based on the expectations we all had for the team. Amidst that implosion, a little something may have flown under the […] Minnesota Twins: Is there a role left for Robbie Grossman in 2019? - Puckett's Pond - Puckett's Pond - A Minnesota Twins Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and...

Monday Morning Minnesota: Everything sucks so let’s reminisce

And some other things too, I guess.

It’s been a slow news cycle on the Twins front, but as I have endeavored to stay in bed today to avoid seeing out the window and looking at snow, I dug up what I could for you fine, fine folks. Grab a Yoohoo, or whatever it is people drink in the morning, and clickity clackity some linkity lackities.

The Twins outrighted Gregorio Petit earlier in the month, in cased you missed the shocking and heartbreaking news I’m sure we all care deeply about. By...

Minnesota Twins search for next manager becoming clearer

The Minnesota Twins are on the search for a new leader to serve as manager after firing Paul Molitor and that search seems to be gaining clarity. The Minnesota Twins front office made the move to fire manager Paul Molitor that was in all reality fairly expected. Even though it was expected as Molitor was […] Minnesota Twins search for next manager becoming clearer - Puckett's Pond - Puckett's Pond - A Minnesota Twins Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

At the ballpark with the 2018 Minnesota Twins

One man’s experiences root, root, rooting for the home team during the 2018 season.

The first Twins game I attended in 2018 featured a game-time temperature of 27 degrees. One of my last trips to Target Field, in late August, almost gave me heat stroke after three and half hours in the direct 80 degree sun. Such is the way of a 20-game season ticket plan combined with Minnesota baseball.

Yeah, it’s cold

This past season, I ended up getting to 27 Twins games (25 at home, two on the...

Hensley Meulens, Joe Espada among top candidates in Twins managerial search

The front office in Minnesota is moving quickly, and has reportedly narrowed their list down to the top candidates.

Since the Twins made the somewhat surprising decision to dismiss manager Paul Molitor back on October 2nd, the team has been looking for a new manager. As of now, they have reportedly interviewed at least two internal candidates: current hitting coach James Rowson and current bench coach Derek Shelton. Based on previous coaching hires, however, we know CBO Derek Falvey and GM...

Juan Graterol moves on to Cincinnati. Also: Juan Graterol was on the Twins.

The Twins catcher gets claimed off waivers by Cincinnati.

If you’re like me, the last 6-8 weeks of the Twins season got a little gauzy. I was paying some attention, but it wasn’t like the surprise run of August-September 2017 where I was scouring game stories and box scores. With Minnesota essentially eliminated from any form or meaning, my favorite baseball team was no longer top-of-mind.

So, when I saw that the Twins lost Juan Graterol on waivers to the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, my...

Thursday Twins: New faces for next season

The Twins are seaching for a manager, but also need some new players. Meanwhile, the business of baseball keeps going.

John Shipley looked at the Twins’ offseason needs, and while he seems to think the retooling will be a bit deeper than I do, he has a very valid point — The dugout will be full of unfamiliar faces come March. Obviously one of those new faces will be the manager, and the Twins have started the process of interviewing candidates. A lot of rumors are popping up already, and...

Derek Falvey addrresses Miguel Sano's traffic incident

Twins chief baseball officer Derek Falvey addressed the traffic incident involving Miguel Sano Tuesday (subscription link via Dan Hayes of The Athletic), telling reporters that “what has been most recently reported is what we are aware of around the accident.” Sano is not facing criminal charges after inadvertently backing into a police officer with his truck, as Dominican police officials have issued a statement declaring the incident to be accidental in nature, adding that Sano has...

More changes coming to Target Field

Gate 34 is getting a makeover for the 2019 season.

It feels like every year, Target Field undergoes a mini-makeover. Without looking, I’m going to attempt to name every change the ballpark has received since opening in 2010.

Twins plan to keep Miguel Sano busy this offseason

The front office has plans in place to make sure their wayward third baseman stays on track this winter.

After accidentally hitting a police officer with his truck last weekend in the Dominican Republic, it’s safe to say Miguel Sano’s offseason hasn’t gotten off to the best start. Thankfully, however, the Twins don’t plan on just leaving Sano to his own devices all winter — they are actually making Sano’s offseason a huge priority.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, CBO Derek Falvey...

2018 Arizona Fall League kicks off for eight Twins prospects

The league also gives top prospects the chance to prove themselves for a possible big-league call up the neat season.

It's set to be an incredibly interesting offseason for the Twins, who have to replace manager Paul Molitor and have the payroll flexibility to improve a roster that took a step backward in 2018. There's plenty of uncertainty on how the front office will approach the next few months, so let's jump right into the first Twins Inbox of the 2018-19 offseason.
