HPMLD: Jim Thome, Johan Santana, the Fort Myers Miracle

Chatter takes a holiday break. Twinkie Town doesn’t.

The Hosken Powell Memorial Link Dump doesn’t have any breaking news or hot free agent talk, but it does have Jim Thome. That’ll do.

Jim-Jam and Johan Santana both make their inaugural bow on the 2018 Hall of Fame ballot. Jimmer is probably a lock, but Johan’s path looks rocky. If Johan’s peak came with the Mets and his falloff came with the Twins, would his path be easier? (Yes. The answer is yes. Most claims of media bias are...

A Twinsgiving story

The entire Twins family has gathered for Thanksgiving Dinner, with some special guests...

The Minnesota Twins and manager Paul Molitor are sitting around a table at the Molitor residence. It's a very long table because it has to fit everyone on the 25-man roster. Well, almost everyone.

A few feet away, Alan Busenitz, Trevor Hildenberger, John Curtiss, Zach Granite, Mitch Garver, Aaron Slegers, and Gabriel Moya are all cramped around a fold-up table that is far too short and small for any of...

How the Minnesota Twins should approach long-term extensions

As the Major League Baseball offseason begins to heat up, many people talk about what teams can potentially add. The Minnesota Twins front office will certainly consider acquiring players through trades and free agency, however, it may not be their top priority. An important aspect of the Twins offseason will be exploring multi-year deals with players under team control. Players on the Twins who fall into this category include Byron Buxton, Miguel Sano, Eddie Rosario, Max Kepler, Jorge...

The Hall of Fame hypocrisy needs to end

I’m not really big on awards. When I was a kid, sure, I was pumped that Justin Morneau beat out Derek Jeter for the AL MVP in 2006 and Joe Mauer’s MVP was a huge deal as well. Regarding Johan Santana, he should have had three Cy Youngs on his mantle but only received two because the voters were more enticed by Bartolo Colon’s wins than Santana’s utter dominance in 2005.

Perhaps it was that Cy Young in ‘05 that started to change my opinion, along with Morneau’s MVP win in ‘06....

The 2017 AFL is a wrap! Here’s how the Twins prospects participating this fall did.
