Twins catcher Joe Mauer went 3-for-5 with a home run in Saturday’s 4-3 win over the Nationals, but Mauer’s most impressive move of the day might have been this behind-the-back catch of a Denard Span foul tip that caromed off the backstop before Mauer deftly snagged the one-hopper behind-his-back like it was no big thing…
To get a better appreciation of Mauer’s hand-eye...
The Minnesota Twins' hometown hero provided a milestone moment, but it was up to their hottest hitter of late to cap a special day in the nation's capital for captain Joe Mauer.
Right fielder Ryan Doumit and the Twins bounced back from a couple wasted plate opportunities to single home the winning run in the 11th inning, ensuring Mauer's 100th career home run came in...
Free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore recently resumed baseball-related activities, meaning he’s nearing the point where
he’ll consider signing his next contract. When this happens – likely closer to
the All-Star break – the Minnesota Twins are one of the teams that will have
interest in Sizemore, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN.
Wolfson points out that...
Although it was unforeseen, the Minnesota Twins will get their second day off of the week Friday.
As Tropical Storm Andrea moves up the East Coast, Twins and Washington Nationals officials decided to postpone the teams' scheduled 6:05 p.m meeting until Sunday, creating a day-night doubleheader at Nationals Park. The teams will square off at 12:35 p.m. as originally slated, then...
In honor of the return of Josh Willingham to Washington for the first time since the December 2010 trade with the A's for Henry Rodriguez and Corey Brown, we present an old 2010 screencap of Josh Willingham in the ceremonial Silver Elvis wig. Willingham wore it a lot that year. Things have certainly changed around here since 2010, when a 93-loss season was considered pretty good...
Facing a lineup featuring zero familiarity with his pitching arsenal, Washington Nationals ace Jordan Zimmermann slammed the door shut on Minnesota's chances of an interleague sweep on the road.
Hard. And fast.
Zimmermann blew through a Twins batting order bereft of Joe Mauer and Josh Willingham in the first game of Sunday's split doubleheader, allowing only two hits and...

The Twins selected right handed pitcher Kohl Stewart in tonight’s draft. I know literally nothing about about him (or for that matter, any of the other prospects), so I did a Google search to find out a little about him. Let’s make some rush’s to judgment!
Um… Hold up. This was the Twins’ draft pick right, and not the Vikings? /double checks. Hmmm. Does Kohl know this?...
Manager Davey Johnson saw an immediate return on the team meeting he held with his players Saturday night “to cheer them up,” in the Washington Nationals’ (30-31) 7-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins (27-32) in the first game of a double header on Sunday.
“I’ll have [a meeting] every day if we get 14 hits and seven runs,” Johnson said.
Johnson had expressed his...
