Minnesota Twins: Byron Buxton coming back to the majors

The Minnesota Twins got swept in their most recent trip to Yankee Stadium, which concluded yesterday. The Yankees have had the Twins’ number for what seems to be like a decade now, and there is no end to the dominance in sight. To make matters worse, starting center fielder Aaron Hicks pulled up after trying to beat out an infield single in the top of the sixth inning. It looked...

What the Hell are the Twins gonna do at Shortstop?

The Twins hit the back stretch of the season, somewhat limping and hovering around .500 and 2.5 games back of the second Wild Card spot.  There are two ways to look at this season.  The first is that the team overachieved and could never have sustained their early season success, but a .500ish year and semi-meaningful games with an outside shot at a surprise playoff appearance...

StaTuesday: Analyzing the Twins' wild home/road splits

Monday's gut-wrenching, 8-7 loss at New York began a 10-game road trip for the Twins that will see them also visit Baltimore and Tampa Bay. And, if recent history is any indication, this stretch will likely illustrate the Twins' overall inconsistency. Because, to this point, the 2015 Twins have been stellar at home and wretched on the road. The Twins (59-59 overall) are 38-24 at...

Aaron Hicks, Jackie Bradley Jr. starting to drift separate ways

Before the season began, I drew a comparision between two former top centerfield prospects Aaron Hicks and Jackie Bradley Jr. It wasn’t a hard comparison to make. Both players were top-100 prospects according to MLB.com and had been rushed to the Majors by their respective clubs, each skipping the Triple-A level for a spot in the Opening Day lineup back in 2013. After they both...

Minnesota Twins' Aaron Hicks makes crazy Willie Mays-like catch

It's not often you hear Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks compared to the legendary Willie Mays. But on Monday night, it was warranted. In the fourth inning of Minnesota's 4-2 win over the Baltimore Oriole, Hicks made a breathtaking catch that can only be described as "Willie Mays-like." Hicks' grab resembled the Hall of Famer's iconic catch during Game 1 of the 1954 World Series, one...

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.

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”...
