  • Twins 2014 - 2015 offseason thread

    Not a lot of news of the Twins front recently. They recently lost Esmerling Vasquez to Japan.

    Esmerling Vasquez signed a contract with the Seibu Lions of Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan.

    The 31-year-old right-hander hasn't played in the big leagues since the 2012 season and didn't pitch at all during the 2014 campaign. If he pitches well in 2015 it could open doors for a potential return to a major league bullpen the following season.

      Twins re-sign Eric Farris

      The Twins re-signed Eric Farris on Tuesday. The minor league portion of Farris’ Baseball Reference page says he is a Second Baseman, Outfielder and Shortstop while the major league page says he is a Pinch Hitter, Second Baseman and Left Fielder. Apparently, he’s quite versatile.

        Twins re-sign Doug Bernier

        Another day, another Red Wings fan favorite re-signing with the Minnesota Twins.

        Wednesday, it was good-guy infielder Doug Bernier, who inked a minor-league deal and could be back in Rochester for a third season. Tuesday, second baseman James Beresford and infielder/outfielder Eric Farris re-signed.

                Twins hire Neil Allen as new pitching coach:

                He used to pitch for the Mets back in the 1980's. Then he got traded for Keith Hernandez.
                The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

                  I have really been lax in keeping up with my old "hometown" team. I forgot Gardy and the coaching staff was gone, had no idea that Paul Molitor was going to be the manager now, nor did I see that big Bruno, Tom Brunansky, will be the hitting coach. Nice. I don't mind the Neil Allen hiring, though I would have preferred the Carl Willis option, the other finalist for the job. Also in that Star-Tribune article linked above, looks like Everyday Eddie Guardado will be the new bullpen coach. I miss Minneapolis. I gotta get back up there sometime, though it would be nice if the Twins were in town when I do. Every year they are on the road when I swing up through the north country. Still haven't seen a game at Target Field because of that bad timing.
