Twins happy to take throwaway victory over Yankees in 11 innings

It should have been a 1-2-3 double play. That’s what a 27-foot dribbler in front of home plate with the bases loaded is supposed to turn into.

Trevor Plouffe took a mighty swing at Matt Thornton’s fastball but connected only enough to send it meekly toward the...

Tigers' fifth-inning meltdown fuels Twins win

MINNEAPOLIS -- A sense of deja vu crept in Saturday as the Minnesota Twins mounted a rally without doing much with the bats. Detroit's bullpen struggled to find the strike zone, much like Toronto's relievers did eight days earlier at Target Field.

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...
