Twins say goodbye, prepare to face Liriano

MINNEAPOLIS The inevitable came on Saturday night, just hours after recent Twins call-up Samuel Deduno's seven-inning, two-hit night. It came as the Twins have gained more and more confidence in their young pitchers over recent weeks, but that didn't make it any more of a decision the team wanted to make. It came as the Twins strung together two nights with double-digit...

Twins stand pat as trade deadline passes

MINNEAPOLIS Denard Span was sweating it. The Twins center fielder read Twitter and saw his name mentioned in trade rumors, and received texts from family and friends about it.But 3 p.m. rolled around Tuesday, and Span wasn't dealt.

Twins trade Liriano to rival White Sox

MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Twins traded pitcher Francisco Liriano to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, acquiring shortstop Eduardo Escobar and left-handed pitcher Pedro Hernandez, who will both be assigned to Triple-A Rochester. Liriano has played his entire big-league career with the Twins, dating back to 2003 when the team acquired him from the San Francisco Giants. He's...

Liriano may not be only Twin dealt at deadline

GM Terry Ryan pulled the trigger Saturday on the trade everyone saw coming, moving LHP Francisco Liriano to the Chicago White Sox for infielder Eduardo Escobar and LHP Pedro Hernandez. That doesn't mean he's done dealing. Teams have until 3 p.m. CDT Tuesday to trade players without sending them through waivers. Ryan called the run-up "my most important time of the...

2014 All-Star game location still undecided

MINNEAPOLIS Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig was at Target Field on Tuesday to speak at a luncheon for the 20th anniversary of the RBI World Series, which will be hosted by the Minnesota Twins. Inevitably, Selig was asked about the MLB All-Star Game in 2014. Selig has yet to announce where that year's All-Star Game will be hosted, but many indications are that Target...

Duensing takes Liriano's spot vs. Cleveland

The Cleveland Indians continue to fall off pace in the AL Central amid a frustrating series against the Minnesota Twins. On the bright side, they won't have to face Francisco Liriano in the finale of the three-game series Sunday when they try to avoid a sweep. Liriano was scheduled to pitch before the Twins dealt him to Chicago late Saturday night for shortstop Eduardo Escobar...

Can White Sox cure Liriano's inconsistency?

With their playoff chances looking ever brighter and a roster full of young, inexperienced players, the White Sox are up for the challenge. Now, Francisco Liriano must turn their challenge into his opportunity. When the White Sox traded for Liriano on Saturday, they knew they weren't getting a polished starter guaranteed to win them a chunk of games down the stretch. They were...

Minnesota Twins trade Francisco Liriano to White Sox

Kenny Williams made another puzzling move when he dealt infielder Eduardo Escobar and left-hander Pedro Hernandez to to the Twins for starter Francisco Liriano. The White Sox have long been questioned for the depth of their farm system and now he has made two deals surrendering five prospects. What’s more, I’m not exactly sure how he has gotten better. Liriano presumably...
