The Twins jumped on White Sox starter John Danks early and pulled out a 4-3 win at U.S. Cellular Field on Wednesday. Twins lefthander Diamond 6-11 faltered some late but can still feel good about his outing as he snapped a five-game losing streak that went back to June 20. Over 61/3 innings Diamond gave up three runs on five hits and two walks - enough for a quality start. He entered the seventh with just one earned run but gave up a two-out two-run single to Jordan Danks and was removed from the game. The Twins counted on Diamond to stabilize their bullpen this season but he got a late start while recovering from having bone chips removed from his elbow. Once healthy Diamond didn’t pitch like the man who went 12-9 for them last season. As the losses piled up he appeared to lose his confidence and was sent to Rochester after a rough Aug. 1 start against the Royals. The Twins were able to salvage one of the three games in the series giving manager Ron Gardenhire his 997th career w...

John Danks settles in after rough start for Wsox

In a lost season, John Danks found something encouraging. Danks allowed four runs in the first two innings of the Chicago White Sox's 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday. From his perspective, though, the next five innings were more important. ''From the third inning on, that's what I hope to be from this moment on - a groundball machine that's throwing...

Twins look to avoid three-game sweep in Chicago

The Chicago White Sox have won five straight over the Minnesota Twins and will try to complete a three-game home sweep as a pair of struggling left-handed starters match up. Minnesota's Scott Diamond is 2-0 this year against the White Sox, who will counter with John Danks on Wednesday in Chicago. The Twins (64-86) took 10 of the first 13 meetings between the AL Central's...

ChiSox announcer Hawk Harrelson's calls get techno remix

I'm not even sure what to say about this. Chicago White Sox broadcaster Ken "Hawk" Harrelson is a one of a kind kind of announcer...and that's probably why he's so polarizing.  Fans of the Southsiders love the guy and his unabashed homerism.  Others, well, others have gone so far to try and "Heave the Hawk". Well, regardless how you feel, nothing...

Pelfrey trying to avoid losing three straight starts

Impressive offensive production, particularly from Alexei Ramirez, has spurred the Chicago White Sox's four-game winning streak over the Minnesota Twins. Jose Quintana would surely appreciate some help from the bats. Ramirez and the White Sox look to give Quintana some needed support as he tries to win Tuesday night for the first time since he last faced the Twins a month ago...

Minnesota enduring all types of stomach-churning losses lately

At least the shellackings are over well before the ninth inning. A night after handing the Twins their second double-digit losing margin in the span of a week, the American League Central Division's worst team gave Minnesota an unneeded reminder that the close ones hurt, too. Three well-hit balls in the ninth inning of a 4-3 defeat -- the Twins' 10th in their last 13 outings...

Minnesota Twins rookie hazing got real weird

With some MLB teams making their final road trips of the season, rookie hazing season is upon us. The Minnesota Twins used the opportunity to dress pitcher Cole De Vries up as a slutty school girl – complete with a wig, tied tank top, plaid skirt, and fishnet stockings. Talk about no mercy. De Vries was a pretty good sport about the whole thing, uploading the below picture to his...

Finally Acquired -- 1997 Donruss Signature Series Auto: Paul Konerko

I recently saw a post over at Dodger Penguin in which Matthew landed a Paul Konerko auto. I've wanted Paul's auto for some time, and had the card I was after in mind, but it always slipped my mind to make a real push towards acquiring it.I decided enough was enough and put some effort into knocking it off of my Cardboard Bucket List. For under $7 delivered this on-card beauty...

Diamond pitches into 7th of Twins' 4-3 win

Scott Diamond pitched into the seventh inning for his first win since June, and the Minnesota Twins avoided a three-game sweep by beating the Chicago White Sox 4-3 on Wednesday. Diamond (6-11) allowed three runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings to earn his first big league win since June 20 against the White Sox. Since then, he was 0-5 with a 6.20 ERA in eight starts and spent more...

Joe Mauer continues to make progress from concussion

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer provided enough encouraging signs during his workout Thursday that general manager Terry Ryan and manager Ron Gardenhire remain optimistic he will play again this season after a concussion. "I'm holding out hope, as you know, that we ultimately can get him back on the field, so we're working toward that,"...

Quintana picks up victory in 4-3 White Sox win over Twins

Jose Quintana won’t tie the all-time mark for no decisions this season. He earned the victory on Tuesday night as the White Sox defeated the Minnesota Twins 4-3 at U.S. Cellular Field. Quintana has already established an American League record with 17 no decisions and leads the majors. But his chance to tie Bert Blyleven’s all-time mark of 20 established in 1979 was wiped out...

Pelfrey struggles in Twins' 4-3 loss to White Sox

Mike Pelfrey came into Tuesday's game struggling and a team that appears to have his number kept him on a downward slope. Pelfrey (5-13) lost his third consecutive start, giving up three runs in just 4 1-3 innings as the Minnesota Twins lost 4-3 to the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Pelfrey's early struggles had to do with a poor curveball...

So this is the third and probably final article I’ve written in this vein. If you’re interested in this kind of thing, you can check out the 5 Worst Seasons with 120+ RBI and the 5 Worst Seasons with 20+ Wins. I went back to 1931, the first year that the BBWAA started voting for the MVP award. I was informed by WAR, but it was not decisive. Debate is welcomed. Honorable Mention...

Oakland A’s Homer Their Way Past Minnesota Twins 8-6

On the day Coco Crisp earned the Cat Fish Hunter Award, the team’s table-setter delivered the decisive table-clearing shot. “That was huge,” Sean Doolittle said of Crisp’s go-ahead two-run shot. “When it looked like they were maybe starting to take some of that momentum there in the eighth. For him to hit that home run took the wind out of their sails.” The left-handed...
