Found July 01, 2012 on 213 Miles From Shea:

The throwback barrage throughout the league continues as the Twins will become the Millers in these really nice uniforms, which you can see via Uni Watch Blog.

I really hope that Twins wear those socks up, because they look awesome.

Francisco Liriano trade rumors

Minnesota Twins pitcher Francisco Liriano is a hot name on the trade rumor mill. A quick look at his 2012 season bears a striking resemblance to his career stats. His start on July 1st against the Royals was a 4 walk, 4 run no decision. In his previous two starts he logged 13.1 innings, surrendered 2 runs and 4 walks, while striking out 11. In 2006 and 2010, Liriano was dominating...

Twins rookie De Vries leaves solid impression

MINNEAPOLIS Cole De Vries got two hours to make the Twins' decision harder. As the 26th man on Minnesota's roster per a new rule that allows teams to add a player for doubleheaders the starting pitcher knew his spot in the majors was tenuous. But after a six-inning outing in which he gave up just one run on five hits, De Vries made manager Ron Gardenhire's decision...

Mastroianni seeing more playing time

MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota's Darin Mastroianni hasn't gotten much playing time since being called up by the Twins in early May, but the speedy outfielder has now been in the starting lineup the last three games. Mastroianni started in left field for the first game of Saturday's double-header and was then starting in right field for the nightcap. One day later, Mastroianni...

Mauer snaps up fifth All-Star nod

Prior to Sunday's series finale against Kansas City, Mauer was batting .325 with a league-high on-base percentage of .416. He has driven in 36...

Twins have a trio of AL all-star candidates

MINNEAPOLIS Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was asked earlier this week who he thought his all star (or all stars) should be this year. It's a question that doesn't yield an obvious answer for Gardenhire, unlike last year, when outfielder Michael Cuddyer was the only logical choice. Cuddyer was not only Minnesota's most productive hitter in the first half of last season...

Major League balls have a short shelf-life

MINNEAPOLIS Two pitches.That was the life span of the first baseball used in Friday's game by Twins starter Brian Duensing. After a first-pitch ball, Kansas City's Alex Gordon fouled the second pitch off to the netting behind home plate. Minnesota's ball boy picked up the ball, taking it to its final resting place somewhere in the bowels of Target Field.Such is the life...

Doumit inks two-year extension to remain in Minnesota

Catcher Ryan Doumit looked like solid trade material for a rebuilding team. Instead, he and the Twins agreed Friday to a two-year, $7 million contract extension that could keep him in Minnesota through 2014. "There's no doubt in my mind we're going to right this ship, and I'm glad to know I'll be aboard when we do," Doumit said. Doumit, 31, is a switch...

Waldrop's 2012 debut an up-and-down outing

MINNEAPOLIS For Kyle Waldrop, this day should have happened months ago.The right-handed reliever seemed like a sure bet to make the Minnesota Twins' 25-man roster out of spring training. But a right elbow strain landed him on the disabled list to start the season, and his opportunity for a spot on the opening-day roster was gone.Finally, after a lengthy rehab process that began...

Francisco Liriano Is Back? And Other Starting Pitching Thoughts

Francisco Liriano is back? That’s what people keep saying. All these different fantasy baseball “guru’s” have been pumping Liriano to the point that he’s the most added starting pitcher in ESPN leagues. He had three quality starts in a row, and since returning to the starting rotation has clearly been better than he was earlier in the season, but back? I don’t think so...
