What happened to the Twins? Seth S. 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: 2010 New ballpark! Yay! It’s…er… HUGE! I CAN HAZ $184 MILLIONS!?!? IN EXCHANGE I’LL STOP HITTING HRs! Ouch! Who turned out the lights?!? DOH! DAMN THOSE DAMN YANKEES… AGAIN!!! 2011 Never fear! Tsuyoshi Nishioka is here! And then… his leg is broken. Thanks for nothing, Nick Swisher! Damn you, damn Yankees!!! And the rest of the Twins 2011 clubhouse… barely breathin’. 2012 Y U NO MOVE IN FENCES!?!? AGGH!!! When will Justin’s ouchy-head be fixed? I need help, dammit! Aaaaand this guy… Nope, not even the healthy return of Morneau could make the pain of the above image go away. In fact, 2012 sorta seems like a good time to reset everyt...

The first of the two ended the top of the sixth inning as Florimon chased down a ground ball deep...

2012 has been good to Twins' Morneau

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...

Twins retire number of former manager Kelly

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&...

Pavano hoping to pitch in 2013

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 been diagnosed...
