A Kansas City Royals Announcer Had A Rough Time With Instant Replay

I’m not much of a Kansas City Royals fan or a Minnesota Twins fan, so I’m not quite sure who the announcers were for this game. Therefore, I’m just going to refer to the announcer as “Announcer.” Regardless, Announcer and the MLB umpires who were in charge of yesterday’s game between the Royals and the Twins had a rough time with instant replay.

From boom to bust: Twins' offense fizzles day after eruption

MINNEAPOLIS -- Apparently the Minnesota Twins didn't save any runs after the offense exploded for 10 of them one day earlier. There were no runs to be had for Minnesota's offense as the Twins were blanked 4-0 by Kansas City on Wednesday. The Royals held Minnesota to just four hits, all singles, to take two out of three games in the series at Target Field. The hope was that...

Royals look to bounce back from Tuesday's onslaught

After breaking out with a big effort at the plate, the Minnesota Twins could have a difficult time building on the performance without a key member of their lineup. Red-hot Joe Mauer is uncertain to play as the Twins seek their sixth win in seven home games Wednesday while also trying to deal the Kansas City Royals their first road series loss since late May.

Twins offense fails to capitalize on chances in loss to Royals

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins manager Ron Gardenhire let out a deep sigh moments before addressing the media following Monday's 6-1 loss to Kansas City. It was one of those nights for Gardenhire and Minnesota. "We had chances," the skipper said. The Twins did indeed have plenty of chances to score in Monday's series opener but didn't capitalize on them. Minnesota finished...

Andrew Miller’s Rough Series Vs. Twins Not A Major Concern For Red Sox

Andrew Miller continues to throw the ball well for the Boston Red Sox. The only thing the left-handed reliever has to show for it this week is two losses to the Minnesota Twins. Miller, who surrendered a walk-off home run to Chris Parmelee in Tuesday’s series opener at Target Field, suffered another crushing loss in Thursday’s series finale. Aaron Hicks, who entered the game...

Walk this way: Parmelee hits confidence-building game-winning homer

MINNEAPOLIS -- Chris Parmelee has had a bit of a tumultuous career with the Twins. His tenure in Minnesota was exemplified by the way his 2014 season started. Fighting for a roster spot out in spring training, Parmelee instead cleared waivers and began the year in Triple-A Rochester. A hot month of April earned him a call-up to the Twins for another shot in the majors. Given what...

Trade Winds Blow Through Twins Ears

I was on Facebook talking to a pretty rabid Twins (anti-twins management) group talking about the usual problems, when I saw one of the members talk about “what if Oswaldo Arcia or Aaron Hicks flame out … then what?” Being a Pirates fan I knew Pittsburgh was about to shop OF Jose Tabata, who would be a huge upgrade for Minnesota. I started to think what would make sense, and...

  Well, the Twins did it. I don’t have anything against Ryan Doumit, but there was no way he had a spot on the team any more. The team is looking to go with Josmil Pinto at catcher, and have a young option to back him up in Chris Herrmann, or a veteran like Eric Fryer. They have no shortage in incredibly slow corner outfielders either, from Chris Parmelee to Chris Colabello to...
