Big lead nearly vanishes for Twins, then becomes bigger lead in huge win over Tigers

It’s not often that a 20-6 victory can be said to have been decided by one play, but the Twins might have managed it Friday night. After taking a 6-1 lead, they were ahead by only a single run in the sixth inning, and Detroit had all the momentum. An intentional walk to Miguel Cabrera put runners on first and third with one out, when Brian Dozier made what might have been a game...

Series Preview: Royals at Minnesota Twins, August 15-18

The Kansas City Royals take their show on the road to face the Minnesota Twins in a park they've had some trouble at times in the past, including the first series there this season where they were swept away during a forgettable weekend. The Royals are 6-6 against the Twins this year, and that includes that rough series, so things have stabilized against their division rival...

Amarista, Smith save Padres' win over Twins

As a rule, Bud Black doesn’t doubt his players. Yet off the bat, the Padres’ upbeat skipper wasn’t sure what sort of chance Alexi Amarista would have at catching Eduardo Escobar’s two-strike drive with the winning run standing on second base in the last of the ninth inning Wednesday afternoon. Positioning sure wasn’t on the diminutive utilityman’s side. “Off the bat...

Royals Come Back, Win 6-3

After standing pat at the trade deadline, Royals fans spent the latter half of today in a bit of a foul mood. A team with a lot of holes, and admittedly so, made absolutely no attempts to make this team better, but still has high hopes of making the playoffs. Sounds crazy, right? That’s because it is. Tonight didn’t get off to a dazzling start, but it finished as one for Yordano...

Twins' again leave too many on base in loss to Royals

Another game, another night in which Minnesota's offense struggled. For the second night in a row, the Twins went just 2 for 12 with runners in scoring position against Kansas City. And once again, it resulted in a loss, this time a 6-3 defeat at the hands of the Royals. Though Minnesota's bullpen faltered in a four-run seventh inning, the Twins' lack of timely hitting...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Real Offensive Value — Shortstops, Part II

Twins pull away late, bounce back with win against Rockies

DENVER (AP) -- Kevin Correia pitched six innings of one-run ball, Eduardo Escobar homered, and the Minnesota Twins pulled away late to beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3 on Saturday.

Twins and the Trade Deadline

We're nearly at the all-star break, which means we're a fair way past the first half of the season but everyone's required to refer to it as the first half anyway.  It's also a good time to look back on what has transpired thus far and what I hope to see in the 2nd half, mainly because that's what everyone does at the all-star break.  The most exciting part...

Joe Mauer's injury dampens mood after Twins smash Royals

Even when the Twins win, they still can’t win. It was star first baseman Joe Mauer’s fourth-inning, bases-loaded double that sparked the Twins’ biggest lead in recent memory. But while the crowd cheered Eduardo Escobar and Sam Fuld home, Mauer pulled up in pain at second base. Mauer’s injury marred an otherwise impressive 10-2 Twins’ victory over the error-prone Kansas...

The White Sox lost a walk off, and Hawk Harrelson didn’t go crazy

On Friday night in Minnesota, the Chicago White Sox fell 5-4 to the Minnesota Twins after a walk off single by Brian Dozier. In situations like this, you expect Hawk Harrelson to be his usual brooding, miserable self, but that wasn’t totally the case on Friday. Let’s take this one part at a time, shall we? First, we have Hawk’s typical depression once Dozier hits the ball...

Twins Stuff

The reason I'm not posting as much this Twins' season is not because they suck.  They are a far more interesting team this season than last and I'm actually enjoying this more than any season in a while.  The reason I'm not posting as much is some combination of laziness and apathy and alcoholism.  I'm not sure those last two seasons make all that much sense...
