Span doubles up on highlight-reel catches

MINNEAPOLIS As Major League Baseball's trade deadline looms, Denard Span doesn't know if Monday night was his last game with the Minnesota Twins. If it was, though, Span made it a memorable one. Span turned in a pair of highlight-reel catches and also had a pair of hits to help Minnesota beat the Chicago White Sox by a 7-6 final Monday at Target Field. Span's first...

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. He remained a Minnesota Twin. So, too, did the rest of his teammates, as Minnesota stood pat on the final day before baseball's non-waiver...

Ryan hangs onto Twins' coveted players

The Minnesota Twins didn't make a move at Tuesday's trade deadline, hanging onto veteran players like Denard Span and Josh Willingham once they saw they weren't going to be able to get the young pitching they wanted in return. General manager Terry Ryan said the Twins never got close to making a deal Tuesday, and by 3:02 p.m. CDT -- two minutes after the deadline -...

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...

Fare thee well, Francisco Liriano

Everybody knew Francisco Liriano was going to be traded, it was just a matter of where to and for what.  With the starting pitching market drying up after Cole Hamels resigned with the Phillies, Matt Garza got hurt, Ryan Dempster basically saying he'd only waive his no trade rights to go to the Dodgers to play with his BFF Ted Lilly, and Zack Greinke (Angels), Anibal Sanchez...

One Player The Mets Should Look At

The Mets have been reeling since the all-star break and their 2012 chances are as bleak as ever. The trade deadline is just 24 hours away and as expected, the Mets have been fairly silent. Nobody expects the team to make a huge move, which is warranted due to the team’s poor play in the past two weeks. However, one move that does make sense to me is acquiring Denard Span. Hear...

Twins Remain Delusional, Make no Moves at Trade Deadline

Aargh this is frustrating.  Once again, the Twins made no moves at the trade deadline (outside of the Liriano deal) despite being irrefutably out of playoff contention and having players other teams covet but who don't or shouldn't figure in the team's future plans - you know, the perfect combination to make a whole bunch of trades (see:  Astros, Houston).  Last season...

White Sox-Twins Preview

On and off the field, the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins have done plenty of interacting over the last week. The White Sox look to win their sixth straight against the Twins on Monday night in the opener of a three-game series at Target Field.
