The Daily Target 8/17

By: Ryan Henning | August 17, 2018 Last Night: Minnesota 15, Detroit 7 – Man, the Twins killed it at the plate last night. Definitely not from the mound. Logan Forsythe is becoming a far more dependable Brian Dozier stopgap than anyone expected, going 5-5 last night, while 3/4ths of the infield collected dingers.

The Twins have a boatload of cash… where will they spend it?

By: Ryan Henning | August 13, 2018 OK, I get it. This season is extremely disappointing, the late season sell off is dispiriting, but frankly, the Twins are in really good shape moving forward. For one thing, this season isn’t nearly as bad as many of those early 2010 abominations.

By: Ryan Henning | August 12, 2018 Last Night: Twins 4, Detroit 3 – The Twins made known their first choice for closer, in the wake of the Fernando Rodney era. Trevor Hildenberger gave us all the full Rodney experience, allowing a Niko Goodrum homer, but still preserving what had been a 3 run lead.

The Daily Target 8/11

By: Ryan Henning | August 12, 2018 Last Night: Tigers 5, Twins 3 – Ervin Santana was rattled a bit early, and the Twins couldn’t overcome the deficit. Apparently, according to Santana it was all the front offices fault, though, for trading away players. A reminder, the Twins were 9 games out at the deadline, and this was before Erv came back and started botching games.
