FOX Sports North Midweek Stock Report for Sept. 2

Every Wednesday, FOX Sports North takes a look at which athletes' stock is trending up and whose is trending down. In other words, whose stock is making a meteoric rise, like one's caloric intake after eating a bucket of State Fair cookies, and whose is plummeting -- like your patience-level, after enduring a summer of Minnesota road construction.  With that in mind, let's "take...

Being Bold: A look back at Minnesota Twins predictions

You can’t predict baseball; but at least I tried. Before the season began, I revealed five bold predictions for the 2015 Minnesota Twins season. For the most part, they’re not coming true due to the team’s surprising success. With just one month left in the regular season, I though it would be a good time to look back on April’s predictions and see how they all played out...

Twins Tickets See Outstanding Value Throughout September As Club Continues Improbable Postseason Push

Despite being one of the biggest underdogs in the American League leading up to Opening Day, the Minnesota Twins have been one of the league’s best surprises in 2015, and heading into the final month of the campaign, find themselves just 1.5 games back of the second Wild Card postseason spot. Though they went just 14-14 over the entire month of August, things were looking gloomy...

Minnesota Twins: the main reason Joe Mauer has been disappointing

St. Paul native and life long member of the Minnesota Twins, Joe Mauer has began to hit a dramatic demise in his career. Back at the end of the 2009 season, when he won the AL MVP after having a career high in batting average, RBIs, home runs, runs, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage, it seemed that Mauer was on his way to being a first ballot Hall of Famer. Now, after...

Momentum, Mauer keys for Twins vs. Rays

Perhaps Minnesota's sweep over Baltimore will be a good omen for the Twins. Against Tampa Bay, they'll take whatever they can get. The Twins four-game sweep of the Orioles marked just the 12th time in franchise history (since 1961) that they swept a four-game series on the road. In addition, it was just the third time Minnesota had a four-game road sweep of a team which entered the...

In defense of Matt Wieters

Matt Wieters, the Baltimore Orioles three-time All-Star catcher, has been catching quite a bit of flak recently. Wieters, of course, was supposed to be “Joe Mauer with power” after the Orioles took him fifth overall in 2007. The switch-hitter has never really lived up to that hype, although his offensive future does look more powerful than Mauer’s. At this point in his career...

Video: Watch what happens when you “ruin” a no-hitter

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber threw a complete masterpiece on Sunday afternoon, not allowing his first hit until the seventh inning when Minnesota Twins first baseman Joe Mauer lined a two-out, one-two fastball to left field. The belt-high pitch was slapped the opposite way, dropping in front of Indians left fielder Michael Brantley. The ball was well hit by a quality...

Twins, Indians can make mark with home-run streak oddity

If you like the long ball then keep your eyes on the Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians this weekend. There has been a home run hit by both teams in all six matchups between the two this season. Since divisional play began in 1969, only three other division rivalries have started a season with a longer such streak. In case you are wondering, here's who has hit the home runs for...

Mauer continuing career trend of heating up in July

Is it the official start of summer? An appreciation of fireworks? Smelling hot dogs, hamburgers and brats on the grill? Whatever it is, Joe Mauer certainly has liked the month of July over his career and that trend has continued in 2015. With two days left in the month, Mauer is batting .314. This should really come as no surprise as Mauer has hit over .300 in July since 2007. In...

Twins look to start new chapter vs. Angels

Playing the Los Angeles Angels has not exactly been like heaven for the Minnesota Twins recently. Last year, the Angels won all seven matchups and averaged 7.71 runs per game, which is the highest output vs. any opponent in the majors since 2014 (minimum five games). Not to pour salt on the wound, but since July 1, the Angels are tops in Majors League Baseball with a 6.29 average...

Joe Mauer’s Megadeal Still Remains the Right Move for Minnesota Twins

Joe Mauer might be the most unappreciated franchise player in the history of baseball, with many of his own fans constantly complaining about his contract, questioning his ability to stay on the field, and often times booing him when he steps to the plate during a cold slump. But if given the opportunity again, the Minnesota Twins would probably sign Mauer to his current megadeal...

Minnesota Twins: A Culture of Confidence

It is the bottom of the 8th inning. There are two outs. You are trailing by 6 runs. Where is your head at? Do you give in and call it a day? This was the situation for the Minnesota Twins in their home game against the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. It is safe to say the situation was looking pretty bleak. Starting pitcher Ervin Santana, whom the Twins were hoping to help...

Manny Machado and Chris Davis hit consecutive homers off Casey Fien in the eighth for the Orioles, but Glen Perkins got his 28th save in 28 attempts with a perfect ninth. Tommy...
