Twin Cities Meteorologists Confused By July Sano Day

Kennys Vargas was demoted to Double-A. Shouldn't it be Double-Kenny? It's official, the Twins hate Vargas. They gave him all of about ten days to prove himself this time around. Maybe they just get off on killing Kennys. Oh, well, that's all I wanted to say in the lede. Nothing else. Just gonna pick my cuticles until I get to that "Anyway, here's what else" jazz that I always...

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...

They were just swept by the Kansas City Royals and surrendered their division lead in the process. It’s been a rough stretch for Minnesota, and it may get worse. Their record now stands at 33-26 as they head into a weekend series...
