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...

Revisiting Old Cardinals: Red Schoendienst

Albert Fred Schoendienst. Red. The legend. Baseball lifer. This season the Cardinals and MLB have been celebrating 70 years of Red in baseball through social media with the #LoveRed2 hashtag. Baseball fans all over have sent in well wishes via video, pictures and stories. For me it hit home when I realized that Red made his major league debut the same year my dad was born. In fact...

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...

Minnesota Twins come back in huge way

During last night’s game between the Detroit Tigers and the Minnesota Twins, things were only going right for Detroit. Until the ninth inning. In what Minnesota is calling a “Twin-credible” victory, the Twins came back from a 6-1 deficit to defeat the Tigers 8-6, capped off by a monster three-run homer from should-be-All-Star, Brian Dozier. Earlier in the game a series of...

Preview: Twins vs. Cubs

Despite back-to-back wins over the top team in baseball, the Minnesota Twins' June has been sparse compared to the first two months of the season. Wins are coming by slim margins, and that's not going to change without improved offense. More support Friday night at Target Field could be especially necessary given Phil Hughes' recent struggles and the Chicago Cubs' Kyle Hendricks...

In defense of drafting Taylor Ward

When the Angels drafted Fresno State catcher Taylor Ward with their first round pick in this year’s draft, the reaction was… less than positive. Angels going with Taylor Ward, lots of folks do a face palm. — Scott (@ScottyA_MWAH) June 9, 2015 I heard Taylor Ward earlier today and winced uncontrollably. Then the Angels chose him. Stupidest FO in baseball, hands down. ...

Watch: Twins' Joe Mauer drives in three runs on slow-rolling single

Here's something you don't see every day. During Tuesday's Twins-Pirates game, Joe Mauer was at the center of one of the stranger scoring plays we've seen in a while. With the bases loaded, Mauer smacked a slow-rolling single to left-center and this is what happened: It's not everyday you see three runs score on a ground ball single, but with two outs and a full count, the runners...

What Ever Happened To Joe Mauer?

  Six years ago, Joe Mauer was at the top of his game. He had won his first and only MVP in 2009, he was the cover athlete on not just one, but two video games, and commercial deals were coming in faster than he could appear in them. Everything seemed to be going right for the Minnesota Twins‘ catcher. Snap back to reality and the tides have certainly turned against him. Somehow...
