Preview: Twins at Orioles

Trying to build on their best offensive showing of the season, the Minnesota Twins' chances at returning to .500 should improve with Tommy Milone on the mound. Milone looks to continue his success against the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night in this series between AL wild-card contenders. Minnesota (60-61) has lost 21 of its past 31 games -- 13 of 16 on the road -- but got this...

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...

Minnesota Twins bounce back with walk-off win

Late inning fireworks from the Twins’ lineup led to their sixth walk-off win of the season. Last night’s comeback, walk-off win over the Texas Rangers was certainly a sight for sore eyes for many Minnesota Twins fans. After a 1-6 road trip last week, the Twins went form sole possession of the second AL wild card spot to four games back from being in the post season. They currently...

Is Eduardo Escobar, like, good?

I was hoping the Twins would do something at the trade deadline, and they did.  I was hoping they'd get bullpen help, and they did.  So I suppose I'm happy with what they did.  They couldn't really have done much more without gutting the future, and considering their performance since the trade deadline it looks like an every better decision to mostly stand pat.  I was hoping...
