September was the final month of the 2014 season for the Minnesota Twins, that’s a recurring theme for the Twins the past couple of years. Let’s just think positively going into the new year.
Let’s recap! Here is September of 2014 on the Pond.

Speaking of positive thinking, everyone loved the call-ups or at least knowing who those call-ups were. While 2014 call-ups did not a whole lot for the team, maybe the 2015 call-ups will actually be exciting players. If we’re lucky, maybe those exciting players will be up before September. What a time to be alive!
4. A Tale of Two Schafers
Jordan Schafer came over to the Twins in the midst of the season. Schafer was struggling with the Atlanta Braves, but was having a much better time of it with the Twins. Like those two cities, it was a tale of two seasons for the outfielder.
3. Optimism In Vargas
By September, we were all looking for things to keep us interested and positive about the Twins. We found that in the fun and power of Kennys Vargas. A little bit of it was the ‘new car’ effect with most Twins fans not before having an in-depth look at the slugger, another part of it was that he is just a total stud.
2. Pinto Problem
It’s still a problem. The Twins, and a lot of people, love Josmil Pinto, but Pinto is not exactly the best catching catcher in the world. The debate about what to do with Pinto was quite a popular debate.
1. Bye, bye New Britain
The Twins Double-A team has moved. No longer will the Twins Double-Aers be New Britain Rock Cats, but now they will be Chattanooga Lookouts. I can’t comment on anything other than the name and I might be biased with my love of Tennessee, but I think the Twins made a good move.
