Improved outfield defense a major reason for Twins' turnaround

Two big reasons for the Minnesota Twins' turnaround from 90-game losers to a team with a winning record heading into July have been the improvements of the starting pitching and the defense. The pitching, which has hit a few bumps as of late, is far improved from the last several years when Minnesota's rotation ranked near the bottom of the majors in combined ERA. The defense has...

Jason Vargas Takes Line Drive to Groin, Manager Delivers All-Time Quote

It doesn’t happen very often, but pitchers must be prepared for a line drive to come screaming back at them. Jason Vargas, who started Monday night’s outing for the Kansas City Royals, took a hard-hit ball from Minnesota Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks where the sun doesn’t shine. Although Vargas recovered to record an out, it certainly looked like a painful one, to say the...

On Second Thought, the Red Sox Will Probably Win the World Series

This is life as a Red Sox fan. One day, they’re bums and has-beens, the next, they’re world beaters. All I know is that on Sunday, I witnessed one of the saddest Sox games since Lee Smith made his Fenway debut and promptly coughed up a long ball to the first batter he faced. It was a loss of staggering proportions, enough to prompt Red Sox ownership to make “official statements”...

Watch: Twins' Hicks reaches base after Pirates pitcher kicks ball away

Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks got his seventh hit in as many games Tuesday, but it came in a very strange way. Hicks chopped the ball a few feet down the first base line and Pirates reliever Jared Hughes ran to field it, but failed miserably when he accidentally kicked the ball, sending it flying into foul territory. While it was an embarrassing moment for Hughes, it could have been...

Twins playing good baseball despite misfortunes

The Minnesota Twins are over .500 and woke up this morning tied with the Tampa Bay Rays for the second wild card spot in the American League. Think about that for a second.  Who thought that would be possible this year?  Nobody.  And the sample size isn’t that small either. With 27 games under their belt, they are exactly one sixth of the way through their 2015 MLB schedule...

Time for Twins to Stop Making Safe Roster Moves

The season is still very young but the Minnesota Twins have had a roller coaster season so far. Between starting 1-6 and then going 8-6 in their next 14 games, there has been a difference of night and day when the Twins take the field. There is a good team that is both talented and exciting and another team that gets crushed by a large amount of both mental and physical errors....

Minnesota Twins: Time for a change in center field

Coming into the season, a big question facing the Minnesota Twins was who is going to start in center field?

Twins Messed Up on Aaron Hicks (Again)

Aaron Hicks was the Opening Day starter in center field for the Minnesota Twins in 2013 and his Major League career has been nothing short of a disaster since then as he is just a .201 career hitter. Minnesota messed up in their handling of Hicks, who made his Major League debut despite no Triple-A experience. The Boston Red Sox made the exact same mistake with Jackie Bradley Jr...

Twins Roster Preview - Hitter guys

With the depressing but not terribly surprising news that the Twins sent all the interesting young people back down to the minors and kept a bunch of lame-o veterans on the big league roster, I suppose it's time to turn my thoughts to baseball.  Also, there's a 75% chance I hate the college basketball national champion (actually probably more like 98%) so I'm going to ignore that...
