The Ultimate 2021 Twins Road Trip

The Ultimate 2021 Twins Road Trip

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports Visiting the Farm With the announcement of minor league realignment this winter, the major Twins affiliates (A, AA, AAA) all happen to be right in the center of the nation. Inspired by this new development, I decided to put my road trip enthusiasm into planning a (hypothetical) (currently) organizational road trip for this season. The mission statement: Attend one home game for each affiliate as well as the big league squad in the least number of days possible. Right off the bat, I eliminated the months of April, May, and June from...

Diamondbacks 5, Reds 3: Rojas rocks

Diamondbacks 5, Reds 3: Rojas rocks

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports Josh Rojas homered twice, and accounted for all five Arizona runs. Record: 3-3. Five-inning record: 3-3. Arizona won their third straight spring game, and largely have local boy Josh Rojas to thank for victory in Goodyear. The West Phoenix native hit a two-run shot in the third, and went one better in the next inning, blasting a three-run homer. Not bad for your leadoff guy to have five RBI by the end of the fourth inning. It probably helped that Pavin Smith went 3-for-3 out of the #9 hole tonight, in front of Rojas. But a lot of D-backs...

2021 South Side Sox Prospect Vote: Round 31

Andrew Perez, left, leapfrogged friend and teammate Bennett Sousa, to claim the final spot in our Top 30. | @BennettSousa/Twitter Who is the 31st-best prospect in the White Sox system? If you’re unsure of what this is, read our Top Prospect Vote primer. Voting was heated, but it was a (delayed, compared to last year) big push for Andrew Perez that saw him leapfrog fellow LHRP Bennett Sousa, winning with 30% (21 of 70 votes). Apparently, SSS experts know a little more than Sox brass? Sousa is in big-league camp, Perez is not. Perez actually fell from his lofty No. 23...

All-Time Marlins Countdown: Chapter 139b

All-Time Marlins Countdown: Chapter 139b

Photo by Elsa/ Miguel Rojas has quietly become the whole package since joining the Marlins for the 2015 season. Miguel Rojas quietly put up an .888 OPS in 2020. The solid number reflected Rojas’ team-second 1.7 bWAR in only 40 games. At that rate, Rojas would easily place number one on our all-time countdown if he had been creating that output through his entire career with the Marlins. As it stands, he’s number 28 on the list, with 7.4 bWAR through his first six seasons with the team. Players are listed in ascending bWAR value divided by PA/BF. The final 128...
