In the midst of a playoff race, the Minnesota Twins don't need to be reminded just how important every win can be.

Following a dramatic victory, the Twins try to end Iwakuma's dominance against them and win their first series in three weeks Sunday. Though...

Three runs is magic number for Twins

The Minnesota Twins hope recent history won't be repeating itself when the New York Yankees invade Target Field. The Twins certainly have had their difficulties with New York over the years at home. And let's not even talk postseason, as the Yankees eliminated Minnesota in the divisional round in 2003, 2004, 2009 and 2010, the latter two being sweeps. Of course, this is a very different...

The Minnesota Twins have some strange clubhouse chemistry

The Minnesota Twins are one of the hottest teams in baseball and are currently tied for first place in the AL Central. While it's one of the more surprising stories in baseball this season, the team has credited much of their success to clubhouse chemistry. And the guy who seems to be the glue holding this team together is veteran outfielder Torii Hunter, who returned to Minnesota...

Red Sox’s Rusney Castillo Lays Out Twice To Rob Twins’ Kurt Suzuki (Video)

Minnesota Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki might have enjoyed a 3-for-4 night Tuesday had it not been for Rusney Castillo.

Here’s a look at Castillo’s first highlight-reel grab, which came with no outs in the sixth inning: The Cuban...

The Twins are over .500. The hell?

Though being one game over .500 isn't exactly blowing up the league, the Twins had extremely low expectations with a Vegas over/under of 70.5 wins, so being on pace to win something like 84 games represents a substantially better season than expected.  One can't help but wonder how they got here, and if we can expect it to last and maybe see some semi-meaningful baseball in September...

Twins Roster Preview - Hitter guys

With the depressing but not terribly surprising news that the Twins sent all the interesting young people back down to the minors and kept a bunch of lame-o veterans on the big league roster, I suppose it's time to turn my thoughts to baseball.  Also, there's a 75% chance I hate the college basketball national champion (actually probably more like 98%) so I'm going to ignore that...

Twins Youth Movement Continues At Catcher

From 2005-2013 the Minnesota Twins had the best catcher in the American League, arguably in the Major Leagues. That argument would be going against a 6x All-Star, 3x Gold Glove winner, 5x Silver Slugger, and an MVP winner Joe Mauer. Then Mauer moved to first base for health reasons, in steps Kurt Suzuki. Suzuki managed to fill the void by being voted to the All-Star game with his...

A not Optimistic Twins Discussion

Hello all.  You know what's weird?  We are sitting here, the day before the World Series starts at the end of a season where the Twins fired their manager and I haven't written one word about it.  I still love baseball.  I've still watched almost every playoff game possible.  I have a strong rooting interest in the Royals over the boring and overused Giants.  I still care about...

But Santana hit a weak ground ball to Royals first baseman Billy Butler that didn’t...
