Despite a career which has been filled with multiple injuries, Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau, entering into his final year of his contract with the Minnesota Twins, tells reporters that he is simply focuses on winning this year. Morneau has been in the majors for twn seasons and always as a member of the Twins organization. Heading into the last year of his $80 million dollar contract, the first baseman told reporters that he’s not worried about a new contract, but just trying to get the Twins back to the post-season.
Minnesota finished the year with a dismal 66-96 overall record, but he believes that this year could be different for the Twins.
Well, his comments are what you expect in spring training. Everyone is undefeated. Each team has a chance.
Morneau needs to focus on staying healthy in 2013. He underwent multiple medical procedures in the 2011 season. He did manage 134 games with the Twins last year. He seems to be aware of his injury plagued past and is conte...

Pavano told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that he feels...
When the pitchers and catchers reported, I had 5 questions for those guys. Now with the rest of the team reporting, I have a few queries for them too. Just like last time, I am going to split this into two groups. Three questions for the infielders, two for the outfielders.
Did anyone remember to bring bats? OK, we know that Justin Morneau and Trevor Plouffe have a little...
Free agent pitcher Carl Pavano suffered a freak snow shoveling incident in mid-January that forced him to have his spleen removed. And he recently revealed that the accident almost proved to be fatal."I'm just lucky to be alive," said the veteran right-hander.He reportedly spent time at three different hospitals before a doctor finally determined that a splenic embolization...
Jeeze Louise. The guy slipped on ice, fell on his shovel and put a divot into his spleen. If he hadn't gone to the E.R. when he did, the Twins would be wearing black arm-bands this year. They removed his spleen. He's lost a lot of weight. He's vowing to return. I dunno. Hard to think about Pavano, considering all the pain he brought upon the Yankiverse. Remember when...
'Sup nerds? It's been a while since I've done on of these, and the people seem to be clamoring for one, so it's time to fire up the Movie Live Blog-inator and watch some crap. I think most of the recent ones I've done have either been about a giant something, a mix of two things, or a vs. type movie, so this time I'm going to go back to my cruel mistress...

They not only were 2009 first-round draft picks, but they are all major league all-stars.
A fan recently reminded Minnesota Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson of those players because he, too, was picked in that first round. In 2009, the Twins chose Gibson with the 22nd overall pick...
