About This Blog

UPDATED: 2/24/11
Nick's Twins Blog is an independent and unofficial journal featuring regular updates and analysis on the Minnesota Twins. It is operated by Nick Nelson, a 25-year-old Minneapolis resident and lifelong baseball fan. Entries on this blog discuss player performance, game strategy, team moves, prospect analysis and a wide range of other topics relating to the Twins as well as the rest of Major League Baseball.

The site launched in March of 2005 as Nick & Nick's Twins Blog, a joint venture between Nelson and fellow fan Nick Mosvick. In August of 2007, Mosvick moved to Virginia to pursue a law school degree and ceased to be a regular contributor to the site. Ultimately, this prompted a change in the blog's name, although Mosvick remains an occasional contributor. In total, this blog has published over 1,500 articles in its six-plus years of operation.

The mission of this blog is to provide a balanced look at the team without being overly positive or negative. There are blogs and media publications out there that come off as overly pessimistic, while others have the opposite problem. The goal here is to inject a healthy dose of objectivity and criticism into baseball analysis while combining that with a passion for the Twins and a desire for the team and its players to succeed.

Nick Nelson graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2008 with a Journalism degree. Aside from this blog, he has written for Rotoworld.com, BaseballDigest.com, Heater Magazine, GameDay Magazine and other publications.  You can contact him at nels2807@gmail.com
