Minnesota Twins Franchise History:
The Twins franchise was established as the Washington Senators in 1894 before moving to Minnesota in 1961. The franchise was one of the charter members of the American League although they had little success in the early years of the league. The Senators first started to achieve success in the 1920s and in 1924 captured their first World Series Championship. The side was one of the best during the 1920s and 1930s adding the 1925 and 1933 American League Pennants to their World Series Title. After three decades of struggle the franchise moved to Minnesota and in 1965 returned to the playoffs and claimed another American League Pennant. After reasonable success in the 1970s the Twins became contenders again the in the late 1980s winning their second World Series Championship in 1987 before adding a third in 1991. The Twins struggled during the 1990s but in the early 2000s was the dominant side in the American League Central Division winning the Division title six out of nine years.
Minnesota Twins Offensive Star: Joe Mauer
Joe Mauer was selected with the first overall pick of the 2001 MLB draft by the Minnesota Twins. Mauer was called up the majors in 2004 but his first two seasons in the league were plagued by injuries. In 2006 Mauer had his breakout season becoming the first catcher in MLB history to win the American League batting league and finish the season with the best batting average. Mauer has gone on to become a third time American League batting champion, a five-time All-Star and in 2009 was the American League MVP. In an attempt to prolong his career Mauer now shares time between catching and playing at first base which saw his record improve in 2012 after a down 2011. As long as his body can hold up Mauer will continue to be the star hitter on the Twins roster.
Minnesota Twins Defensive Star: Scott Diamond
Scott Diamond was signed by the Atlanta Braves as an undrafted free agent in 2008. Diamond failed to make a major league appearance for the Braves and was selected by the Minnesota Twins in the 2010 Rule 5 draft. Diamond started the 2012 season in the minors but was promoted early in the season and finished the year as the Twins most successful pitcher. Diamond is one of the many contenders for the Twins starting pitching role and based on his efforts last season appears the most qualified for the job.
Minnesota Twins Manager: Ron Gardenhire
Ron Gardenhire has been a member of the Minnesota Twins organization for over twenty years. Gardenhire joined the franchise as a coach in 1991 and was named manager in 2002. The Twins have experienced great success under Gardenhire winning six American League Central Division titles. Despite their regular season success the Twins have not qualified for the World Series under Gardenhire’s management. After back-to-back losing seasons Gardenhire is under pressure to return the Twins to their winning ways in 2013.
