Minnesota Twins: time to accept their fate

The 2015 Minnesota Twins have finally descended into the team we all thought they were going to be this year, losers. They just ended a seven game road trip with a 1-6 record, and their record has fallen to below .500 for the first time since early May, as it currently stands at 55-56. Just a week ago, they were in position to win a wild card spot, but after getting swept by the...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Twins vs. Annoyed

I’m already annoyed at this series. I’m annoyed that the Twins are good and I honestly have no idea how they are good. No team that has prominently featured Mike Pelfrey, Tommy Milone and Ricky Nolasco in their rotaiton should be any good. I’m annoyed that Torii Hunter is on the Twins, which is going to lead to a whole new round of Angels fans on Twitter bemoaning the Halos...

Twins' pitching woes return in loss to Reds

Using relievers becomes tricky enough in interleague play when the potential need for a pinch hitter arises. A short outing by the starting pitcher doesn't make things any easier. For the second time in four games, the Minnesota Twins' bullpen was forced into action plenty early in a National League park. Twins starter Mike Pelfrey lasted two-plus innings Monday -- his shortest start...

Split the difference: Mike Pelfrey's revival due to revamped splitter grip

There have been a few surprises on this year's Minnesota Twins team. Right-hander Mike Pelfrey has been among the biggest. One pitch is largely responsible for Pelfrey's revival, too. It was during spring training this year when Pelfrey -- who missed most of last season with an injury -- talked with new bullpen coach Eddie Guardado about a particular pitch. Pelfrey knew that Guardado...

Watch Mike Pelfrey ward off sunflower seeds during dugout interview with stylish hat

Mike Pelfrey is a cagey veteran when it comes to dugout interviews. He showed us this much during Friday's Twins-Cubs game, when his teammates attempted to foil his in-game interview with the 'ole sunflower seed prank. But Pelfrey, however, came prepared. As the seeds began to fall, the right-hander politely stopped the interview and pulled out of his pocket a beekeeper hat, which...

Preview: Twins at Rangers

The Minnesota Twins' lone win in the last seven games came with Mike Pelfrey on the mound. Mired in their longest skid of the season, the Twins will look to him for yet another strong performance Saturday against the Texas Rangers.

Mike Pelfrey has been everything the Twins wanted

The Minnesota Twins are somehow eight games over .500 and just one game back of the first-place Kansas City Royals in the tough American League Central. Their offense has been unbelievably clutch and their pitching has exceeded expectations. Much of that has to do with a man named Mike Pelfrey. As soon as the Minnesota Twins announced Pelfrey would take suspended Ervin Santana...

Mike Pelfrey Looking to Continue 2015 Success

Mike Pelfrey was 5-16 with a 5.56 ERA after two years in a Minnesota Twins uniform, but his third season in the Twin Cities is off to a convincingly better start.
