Every now and then, God flexes his muscle, maybe just to remind wee little men how frail they are. The Texas Ranger and Minnesota Twins needed no instructions to immediately vacate the field. God clapped, they jumped. Enjoy.

When the Minnesota Twins used the 20th overall pick of the 2002 MLB draft on Denard Span, a lot of the draft analysts were surprised and felt the Twins had reached for him. For years, that analysis seemed to be spot on as Span continued to struggle offensively in the minors.
It's been a slow climb back from an injury-filled 2011 season for Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau, but he heads into this week's All-Star break on a bit of a high note.
After going 1-for-5 in Sunday's extra-innings loss to Texas, Morneau is now riding a 10-game hitting streak into the break. During that stretch, he has 14 hits, four RBI and a home run. The...
Minnesota's Joe Mauer was the only Twin selected to the 2012 All-Star game, and he made the American League roster as a catcher. But Mauer entered Tuesday's game in the top of the eighth inning as a first baseman.Mauer's appearance in Tuesday's 8-0 National League victory was a brief one, as he didn't enter the game until the eighth inning and had just one at...
The numbers show that Glen Perkins has been an effective pitcher since moving from the starting rotation and into the bullpen. The Minnesota Twins southpaw knows those numbers as well as anyone, and not just his won-lost record, his ERA and his WHIP. He’s also aware of his BABiP, his FIP and his WAR, as well as most anything that can found in his PITCHf/x data.

The Minnesota Twins pull into the All-Star break playing reasonably good baseball and within spitting distance of first-place Chicago in the AL Central, 11 games out with roughly half a season left. The fact that they have rallied from such a deficit in recent memory bolsters confidence of a team digging itself out of a 6-16 April. "We dug ourselves a pretty deep hole,...
After a forgettable 99-loss season in 2011, the Minnesota Twins have again stumbled in the first half of the 2012 season. After Sunday's 13-inning loss to the Texas Rangers, the Twins are now 36-49 and 11 games out of first place heading into next week's All-Star break. Through 85 games last year, Minnesota was 38-47 and eight games out of first place.
If the Twins are to...
With Francisco Liriano heating up, and so few teams branded as definitive sellers as trade-deadline season gets ready to kick into high gear, interest in the lefty figures to pique soon. Earlier today, Ken Rosenthal reported that some teams prefer Liriano as a reliever. While Liriano could work out as a reliever, acquiring him to be one seems like a circuitous route to success.
By the time Sunday's 13-inning game between the Twins and Rangers was over, Cole De Vries' impressive start was all but forgotten. Still, that doesn't take away from the outing the right-hander put together for Minnesota.In just his fifth career major league start, De Vries delivered his best outing as a Twin. The Eden Prairie, Minn., native and former Golden Gopher held...

In the top of fourth inning during Sunday’s Twins-Rangers game, Roy Oswalt was facing Ryan Doumit when a loud thunder and lightning strike sent players running off the field. The simultaneous thunder clap and lightning strike was so loud it caused for great quotes from both players and managers alike.
Rangers manager Ron Washington is up first.
“I thought I was dead,” said...
I don’t think I ever heard thunder this loud before.
The Texas Rangers were hosting the Minnesota Twins when out of nowhere a loud smack of thunder quickly sent the players running off the field. This would be a lot funnier except I would’ve reacted like the Twins player on first base who ended up on all fours.
