MLB Game Picks - Wednesday: August 20, 2014

Let's recap the bad picks from last night: The Yankees are terrible and cannot do anything right. The Rays and Tigers went back and forth all night, went into extra innings with the Tigers coming out on top. The one time I actually pick Kyle Gibson, he cannot hold a five-run lead. And Kevin Correia was predictably bad like always, but Ian Kennedy and the Padres' defense...

First thing's first: Twins relinquish big lead in loss

MINNEAPOLIS -- A win seemed all but inevitable when the Minnesota Twins scored five runs before recording an out in the first inning Tuesday against Cleveland.

Joe Mauer Imposter Slugs Twins Past Astros 3-1

The Twins were able to keep the Astros offense quiet while their own offense was led by someone pretending to be Joe Mauer, because we all know Mauer doesn't hit home runs, right? This year, Kyle Gibson has either been really, really good, or he's been awful. Today was an example of the former as he allowed only one run in 7 2/3 innings as the Twins beat the Astros 3-1....

Gibson sharp, replay officials not so much as Twins win over KC

Ron Gardenhire knew there was a good chance he was going to get thrown out because of a replay challenge Tuesday. But he was astounded by the reason why. The Twins manager watched Kyle Gibson hold Kansas City to two hits over seven innings on Tuesday and collect the victory in a 2-1 decision over the Royals.

Gibson provides Twins with jolt in road win

With a sore back the culprit, Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson had to push his latest start back more than 10 days. Turns out it was worth the wait. Gibson spun a gem Tuesday in Minnesota's series opener, proving the back was no longer an issue. He allowed just two hits and struck out six Royals batters as the Twins topped Kansas City 2-1 at Kauffman Stadium. "I felt good...

Twins Thursday: Gibson likely to also miss Saturday start

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins were hopeful that Kyle Gibson's back would heal in time for him to start Saturday against Chicago.

Until Wednesday afternoon Anthony Swarzak had been used exclusive as a reliever by the Minnesota Twins.

Deduno, Twins bullpen provide bright spot in close loss to Yankees

MINNEAPOLIS -- With the New York Yankees launching their own Fourth of July fireworks in the first two innings Saturday against Kyle Gibson, it appeared as if the Twins might be in for a long day.

Gibson struggles early, but Twins avoid losing ugly

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Minnesota Twins may sometimes be down but rarely are they every truly out of a ballgame until the final inning. A disastrous game was instantly turned around. The Twins made the most of the few chances they had and although they were edged 8-6 by the Los Angeles Angels Tuesday night in Anaheim, it wasn't necessarily a bad loss. "We stay after it, we...
