Back in majors, it seems Colabello's troubles are behind him

MINNEAPOLIS -- Chris Colabello hopes he's recaptured the magic that made him one of baseball's best stories in April. Three games into his second stint with the Twins this year, he's on the right track. Colabello has delivered several big hits in a limited time since he was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on July 2, the same day Minnesota put first baseman Joe Mauer on the disabled...

Chris Colabello – More Cowbell, please

I haven’t been this excited for a Twins rookie since … OK so I’d be lying if I said that I expected anything like this out of Chris Colabello this season. At 30 years old and after showing zero flash as a major leaguer last year in his debut I didn’t expect him or want him to make the team’s 25 man Opening Day Roster. Through April 19th I am a fool for thinking so. Cowbell...

WATCH: Twins player homers while mom is interviewed

Chris Colabello of the Twins hit a two-run shot over the center-field wall to tie the game at 2-2 at the exact same time that his mother was being interviewed on FSN. Not only was it a fairly opportune time for Chris to launch the home run, it was also his mother’s birthday. Not too shabby of a birthday present, huh? The mother’s squeals of joy were pretty fantastic, and we...

Is Chris Colabello like, good?

I've been getting a lot of **** lately because I haven't written anything Twins related.  Honestly between the one million day games and my two completely insane children I haven't gotten to see that much.  I have seen enough to finally make a post, and why not start with American League RBI leader Chris Colabello? First off history is generally against him given that not many...

Colabello happy to continue playing in Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins first baseman Chris Colabello is fluent in three different languages. Korean is not one of them. "Not at all," said Colabello, who speaks English, Spanish and Italian. "One of these days, maybe." There was a chance Colabello would have had to pick up Korean as his third foreign language in order to continue his baseball career. After making his major league debut...

Minnesota Twins: Colabello contributes hot bat to lineup

Target Field While the Minnesota Twins still struggle to see a record above .500, designated hitter and first baseman Chris Colabello has been nothing but determined to help the team reach that goal and a possible chance at postseason. At 30 years old, Colabello was not within immediate eyesight for any Major League roster following school. Graduating from Assumption College in 2005...

Call on Chris Colabello

Typically one who preaches patience, warns of small sample sizes, and generally avoids breaking up my carefully drafted roster after just a handful of games I’m breaking the mould this week and calling on Chris Colabello of the Minnesota Twins. The 30 year old journeyman stuck with the club out of Spring Training and has made an impression in his first week of action. Last year...

Chris Colabello headlines our MLB twitter update with 6 RBI

The Fantasy Baseball stud of last night…Chris Colabello! Heard of him? If so, I know you didn’t have him in your lineup as he was only one percent owned in Yahoo! leagues hours after his Twins edged the White Sox 10-9. I’m really starting to hate Chris Colabello, whoever the hell that is. — Chris Gaines (@Schraderbrau88) April 4, 2014 Chris Colabello (@CC20rake) goes 2...

Colabello's career day powers Twins past White Sox

Chris Colabello was the International League's Most Valuable Player in 2013, and the longtime minor leaguer turned that into a trip to the majors last year. Despite the success Colabello had at Triple-A Rochester, he wasn't able to replicate it with Minnesota in his first season in the big leagues. Despite batting just .194 in 55 games with the Twins last season, Colabello earned...
