I like on Jeopardy when they get to pop culture questions and the contestants are totally baffled. If we ever have an NHL season, the Stars look… scary. Speaking of, the Wild’s single game tickets will go on sale soon. I would hold off on that investment for a while Robin Van Persie moved from Arsenal to Manchester United, and Piers Morgan melted down. SCOREBOARD
Chicago 9, New York 6 – AL Central team wins in New York.
Minnesota 7, Oakland 2 – The Twins drop Nick Blackburn, then win.

Twins outright RHP Nick Blackburn to Triple-A

The Minnesota Twins have outrighted struggling right-hander Nick Blackburn to Triple-A Rochester. The team will make a corresponding move to fill Blackburns spot on the 25-man roster prior to Tuesdays game in Oakland. Minnesota also outrighted infielder Tsuyoshi Nishioka, who is currently playing for Rochester. The moves mean that both Blackburn and Nishioka are no longer on the...

Nick Blackburn Sent Back Down to Minors

Minnesota Twins’ starting pitcher Nick Blackburn will be making his second trip down to Triple-A Rochester after struggling yet again at the Major League level.  Blackburn has not won a start since being sent down to the minors and boasts a record of 0-4 in six starts since then.

The Twins will replace him on the 25-man roster on Tuesday. Blackburn was scheduled to take the mound on Wednesday against the A's. After a decent performance over his first two major...

This DOES make sense

The Twins made a roster move that was all together rational and easy to understand today. In fact, if there was a problem with the maneuver it was that it wasn’t done sooner. Nick Blackburn and Tsuyoshi Nishioka were outrighted off of the 40 man roster. First it should be noted that there was a reason this move was done now aside from the obvious “they haven’t been very good...

Twins recall RHP Hendriks to start Wednesday

After outrighting Nick Blackburn to Triple-A on Monday, the Minnesota Twins filled his spot in the starting rotation Tuesday, recalling right-hander Liam Hendriks from Rochester. The 23-year-old Australian has dominated Triple-A this season, going 9-3 with a 2.20 ERA in 16 starts and 106 13 innings for the Red Wings. But Hendriks struggled in the big leagues this season.
