Byron Buxton AL MVP? Yes, I’m ready to believe

When the Twins extended Byron Buxton’s contract, it struck me as a very team-friendly deal. Although laden with incentives, it seemed that Buxton wouldn’t meet any of them because of his past struggles with injuries. For example, if he wins MVP, the Twins owe him an additional $8 million, according to MLB Trade Rumors. After... Continue Reading »

Twins look completely overmatched in series versus Dodgers

Boy, oh, boy, major league baseball teams are not created equal, are they? The big-money, big-talent Los Angeles Dodgers looked every bit the part in their short, two-game series with the Twins.

Hi, I’m Rolf Boone, Twins fan.

I became a fan of the Minnesota Twins after a friendly wager in the early 1980s. I survived Ron Davis, the meltdown in Cleveland, Phil Bradley at the Kingdome and then marveled at a rising generation of stars and two World Series wins in 1987 and 1991. Brad Radke made the 1990s bearable, while Kirby Puckett’s eye injury, exit from the game and eventual death made it almost too much to bear. The new century ushered in more talent — Joe Mauer, Johan Santana, Joe Nathan, Torii Hunter, Justin Morneau — and consecutive seasons of playoff baseball, followed by consecutive seasons of losing baseball. A winning season returned in 2015. So here we are. Go Twins.
