Long weekend nets big numbers for Twins, Tigers

MINNEAPOLIS -- If ever there was a time for an off day, it's now for the Minnesota Twins. A long day Sunday in a 13-4 loss to Detroit capped what turned out to be an even longer weekend at the end of an 11-game, 10-day homestand for Minnesota. The last three days were about as jam-packed as any stretch of the schedule this year for the Twins, who played four games in three days...

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...

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.

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.

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.
