End of season post-mortem: Minnesota Twins

The Twins are probably going to end 2014 with their best record since 2010, but given that they’re coming off three-straight 96-loss seasons, that’s not exactly a consolation. This once proud franchise has fallen onto rough times, and their 2014 season could be their most disappointing year considering the additions the club made in the offseason.

WATCH: Nelson Cruz crush major league-leading 35th home run

It’s been nothing short of an MVP-type season for Orioles’ Nelson Cruz, and the former Rangers slugger showed that he deserved the AL MVP with a massive home run against the Minnesota Twins. With the game scoreless in the bottom of the 3rd, Cruz rocketed a Ricky Nolasco slider that hung too high over the left field wall to put the O’s up 1-0. Aside from Cruz’s 35th home run...

Hot-hitting Twins limited by dismal starting pitching

The Twins' 12-8 loss Sunday to Baltimore was a microcosm of how Minnesota's month of August went: plenty of offense, not nearly enough pitching. On a day when the Twins scored eight runs and finished with 15 hits, it should have been enough for the pitching staff to earn the win, or at least hang in the game. But right-hander Ricky Nolasco served up eight runs in five-plus...

Royals need to take advantage of final series with last-place Minny

Having lost back-to-back games for the first time in nearly a month, the Kansas City Royals will try to keep that skid brief by continuing their success against the Minnesota Twins.

Gomes goes for more against Nolasco

Ricky Nolasco's return to the mound last week didn't give the Minnesota Twins any more confidence in what he can do. The same can be said about his first two outings against the Cleveland Indians as he served up homers to Yan Gomes in both. Gomes was the hitting star in the opener of this three-game set and will try to add to Nolasco's misery Wednesday night at Target...

What will the Twins rotation look like next season?

The Twins, at 11 games out of first place, are at a point where they can safely begin thinking of next year. I do believe that it’s important to continue to show strides this year. As many complaints as they have had, they haven’t hit their late season swoon yet, and they have a very good chance at 70 wins this season. It would show the players on the roster that there is hope...

Nolasco's return spoiled by 'one bad inning'

MINNEAPOLIS -- At first, it seemed more than a month of recuperation had done Ricky Nolasco some good. Then a familiar face displayed a sliver of his 2012 self. Former Twins outfielder Josh Willingham, back at Target Field for the first time since being traded Monday to Kansas City, provided the game-turning swing in a 6-5 Royals victory that nudged the American League Central Division...
