Happy afternoon. Nothing better than college football. Well, I guess wat until tomorrow.
A very scary incident from from the Tulane-Tulsa game, where safety Devon Walker had to be resuscitated and given a tracheotomy on the field.
Hey good news! The Twins aren’t raising ticket prices!\
Who will have the first pick in 2013?
Kansas City 7, Chicago 5 – If they could just play the White Sox and Tigers, they would be in the playoffs.
Cleveland 7, Minnesota 6 – The Twins were not helped by their bullpen. Alex Burnett was bad.
Minnesota 44, New Hampshire 7 – UNLV is better than New Hampshire, apparently.

MINNEAPOLIS Carl Pavano's 2012 season is finished. There's a chance that the right-hander's career with the Minnesota Twins may be over, too.If it were up to the 36-year-old Pavano, though, he would love to come back to Minnesota next season after his current contract expires at the end of this year. Yet at the same time, Pavano knows it's not solely his decision...
MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau hit two homers in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Indians, including the walk-off game winner in the bottom of the ninth inning.
In the grand scheme of things, the home runs weren't the important part.
What mattered most, at least in a big-picture sense, was that Morneau was on the field and producing in September...
Chris Colabello’s run from being last season’s Independent Player of the Year (Baseball America) to setting a new team record for runs batted in during his first affiliated season to earning runner-up honors as the Eastern League’s Most Valuable Player is little short of miraculous. It also has given the 28-year-old first baseman a full plate of baseball for this fall and...
MINNEAPOLIS The list of names kept rolling. Former players. Former teammates. Retired numbers. Every one of them holds a place in the hearts of Twins fans, but for one evening, it wasn't about them. It could have been monotonous, this name after name after name, long walk after long walk across the same stretch of outfield that current players cover so quickly. But it wasn&...
Righty Carl Pavano knows that eventually his body will betray him. It happens to every athlete, and
Pavano is more aware of it than ever because he turns 37 on Jan. 8. He hasn't pitched in a major league
game since June 1 because of a shoulder injury. But the veteran is confident that hasn't happened yet and that he will pitch in 2013. Now that he has
Justin Morneau hit his second homer of the game in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Minnesota Twins to an 8-7 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.
With one out in the ninth, Morneau hit the first pitch from Indians reliever Vinnie Pestano (3-2) just inside the right field foul pole for his 19th homer of the season. Morneau, who has four two-homer games this season...
What happened to the Twins?
Saint Paul, MN
Ah, yes, the Minnesota Twins. What did happen to those paragons of fundamentally sound baseball? An analysis of such depth requires patience, dedication and an insatiable hunger for the truth, so I put the RSBS interns to the task and they have provided the following slide show:
New ballpark! Yay...
The Indians dropped the second game of their weekend series in Minnesota on Saturday night, falling 3-0 at Target Field. The Tribe lineup managed just four measly hits off a combination of Cole De Vries and three Twins relievers.
