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&...
Darin Mastroianni, the Minnesota Twins' fourth outfielder, has worked with trainer Perry Castellano on a regimen to keep himself ready for defense even when he isn't playing. On Tuesday in Chicago, that meant a series of long tosses to the center field wall at U.S. Cellular Field, where the Twins were playing the White Sox. Castellano would toss the ball over the fence...
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.

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.
