    Sports mascots are often gifted with extraordinary “abilities” that we humans can only dream of.  But usually those same “abilities” are also pretty useless, like doing the Macarena during the 7th inning stretch, or getting into fights with Barney the Purple Dinosaur. However, at a recent spring training game between the Minnesota Twins and the […]

    During the off-season, Major League Baseball instituted new rules and technology that would allow managers to challenge an expanded number of calls on the field through the use of video replay.  This new rule made it’s debut today, and during a Grapefruit League battle between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Minnesota Twins, Jays manager […]

    We rarely see any noteworthy kiss cam moments that aren’t staged anymore. As soon as teams realized they could get a little viral publicity by orchestrating unique or shocking kiss cam moments, pretty much everything has been fake. However, there are a few exceptions, and the hilarious kiss cam moment we saw last night during the Twins-Indians […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/20/2013 — Justin Morneau

    Beating the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers has not been an easy feat to accomplish for most MLB teams this season, but last night the Twins’ Justin Morneau did just that pretty much all by himself. The 32-year-old first baseman from Canada stepped to the plate five times on Tuesday and he came away with four […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/6/2013 — Andrew Albers

    After climbing through the ranks of the Minnesota Twins farm system and doing enough to impress the team’s management, Andrew Albers was finally given the opportunity to start his first career Major League Baseball game at the age of 27 last night.  And despite taking on one of the hottest teams in baseball in the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/23/2013 — Chris Herrmann

    It always feels good to award the “Stat Line of the Night” to some guy that barely anyone has ever heard of, and today just so happens to be another one of those instances, as we award the honor to Minnesota Twins third-string catcher Chris Herrmann. That’s right.  Herrmann plays behind both Joe Mauer and […]

    Samuel Deduno Was a Man Possessed on the Mound Last Night (Video)

    Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Samuel Deduno may be looking for a way to give his curveball some additional bite, and it appears as though he found it during last night’s victory over the Los Angeles Angels. With one out, a runner on third and the Twinkies leading 4-2, Deduno was one strike away from retiring […]

    Twins Ball Boy Makes Great Leaping Catch (Video)

    If you’re a ball boy for a Major League Baseball team, this is the kind of thing you dream about—making leaping catches, saving people from imminent danger, making highlight reels, and maybe getting some insanely hot chick’s digits. Well, during yesterday’s Twins-White Sox game at Target Field in Minneapolis, that dream came true for one […]

    Joe Mauer, a.k.a. Mr. Twin, Is Having Twins!

    We already knew that Joe Mauer was Mr. Minnesota. The guy played baseball, basketball, and football for Cretin-Derham Hall High School in Saint Paul and became the first person ever to be selected as USA Today’s High School Player of the year in two sports—football in 2000, baseball in 2001. But of course, he turned […]

    Twins Fan Caught Taking A Whiff Of Her Armpit (GIF)

    There are a few things that spectators at a baseball game should be concerned about.   Avoiding any errant bats and balls that make their way into the stands is usually one of those things.  The smell of their own armpits on a hot summer night, on the other hand, is rarely on that list of […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/22/12 — Ryan Doumit

    Wins haven’t been easy to come by for the Minnesota Twins this season, as their 39-55 record heading into Sunday was good enough for last place in the American League.  Taking on the second-worst team in the American League, the Kansas City Royals, the Twins had the opportunity to bring themselves one game closer to […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/16/12 — Denard Span

    The Minnesota Twins entered last night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles having lost five in a row.  During that five game stretch, they had managed to score a total of 16 runs.  On Monday night, they needed only one game to surpass that total, as the Twins’ offense exploded for a 19 runs during their […]
