The Twins Historically Bad Rotation (Again)

The Minnesota Twins rotation was historically bad in 2013. Their starting pitchers authored a 5.26 ERA and a 12.4 percent strikeout rate at a time when the major league average strikeout rate for a starting pitcher was just a shade under 19 percent. Relative to the major league average, it was the worst strikeout rate ever. In the offseason, the Twins overhauled their rotation...

Offensive Explosion Gets Tribe One Step Closer

After a trying day that included yanking Chris Perez from the closer’s role that he’s held for the past three and a half seasons, the Indians really needed a no-doubter type win where they could give some key bullpen guys the night off. They got just that as the Indians bats exploded on lefty Pedro Hernandez and posted seven runs in the first two innings. The lead eventually...

Series Preview: Indians at Twins 9/26-29

We're finally at the end of another long season and the Indians are making things interesting by competing for a Wild Card position that possibly won't be decided until the final game of the season. After completely decimating the White Sox (and breaking Hawk Harrelson's heart in the process), the Indians will play another lowly Central Division foe in Minnesota. The...

Hernandez shelled in Twins' loss to A's

Minnesota pitcher Pedro Hernandez got off to a rough start when he gave up three hits in the first inning. It didn't get any easier after that for the Twins lefty. Hernandez allowed six runs and eight hits in just two innings, matching his shortest outing of the season in Minnesota's 9-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Saturday. ''Hernandez basically centered...

A’s Pull Closer to A.L. West Title with 9-1 Win Over Twins

After a downpour that caused the original 1:05 p.m. start time to be pushed back to 3:05, the A’s came out and battered the Minnesota Twins en route to a 9-1 win, pulling themselves one game closer to a second straight American League West title. It took Jarrod Parker 18 pitches (15 of them to the first two batters) to get through the first, stranding a one-out Brian Dozier infield...

2013 Fantasy Baseball Daily Fix: September 21st 2013

  Today I’m playing the $2 Moon-Shot challenge, the Daily Dollar AND the $1 Triple-Up! The Rays bested the Orioles in an incredible 18 innings by the score of 5-4. Both bullpens were exhausted therefore both of the starting pitchers in tomorrow’s game will likely be able to go the distance. Additionally, both teams will probably be using some bench players; of course, not too...

MLB Game Picks - Monday: September 9, 2013

How bad is the Game of the Day feature this year when a team breaks an eight-game losing streak just to foil it? Pretty bad.

There are eleven games on the schedule and some of them have great impact...

Hernandez puts in six effective innings before Twins win over Astros in 12th

Ron Gardenhire was a little worried about the Twins’ past two games in Houston. Long reliever Anthony Swarzak threw a season-high 70 pitches Monday meaning the Twins’ long reliever and early-inning bailout artist was unavailable — “and we’ve got a couple of kids going” the manager said. Pedro Hernandez didn’t pitch like a kid though. Making his first major league start...
