  • These Blonde Twins Were At The Twins Game Last Night  (Video)

    These Blonde Twins Were At The Twins Game Last Night (Video)

    Talk about a coincidence! During last night’s game between the New York Yankees and the Minnesota Twins in the Bronx, YES Network cameras caught these two identical twins sitting in the first row with their matching outfits.  That seemed to be the prefect time for Michael Kay to promote the network’s broadcast for today’s game […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/15/11 — Jim Thome

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/15/11 — Jim Thome

    When Alex Rodriguez was approaching the 600th home run of his career, a feat he reached on August 4, 2010, everyone in America took notice.  Media outlets across the country followed the story and it seemed as though every American sports fan was following A-Rod’s pursuit of the historic milestone.  The Minnesota Twins’ Jim Thome […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/4/11 — Brian Duensing

    If I told you that one of the starting pitchers from yesterday’s game between the Minnesota Twins and the Tampa Bay Rays struck out seven batters and allowed only six hits during a complete-game shutout victory, you would probably assume we were talking about Rays starter David Price.  However, Price would allow four earned runs […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/23/11 — Tim Lincecum

    Thus far the 2011 MLB season has been a disappointment for Tim Lincecum by his standards.  He entered last night’s game against the surging Minnesota Twins with a 5-6 record and a 3.39 ERA, which is very un-Lincecum-like, but he improved upon both of those stats with a Lincecum-like performance. The two-time Cy Young Award […]

    5 MLB Teams Whose Seasons Are Already Over

    Baseball is a game that moves slowly and deliberately throughout the season. I mean, when you have 162 games to play, there really isn’t any other way to move. When you’re in the top spot, it affords you the ability to relax and tweak your style should any serious threats emerge. If you’re in the […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/12/11 — Francisco Liriano

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/12/11 — Francisco Liriano

    Francisco Liriano managed to come away with his fourth victory during yesterday’s start against the Texas Rangers, but it was what he failed to come away with that had most people talking following the game. Keeping the Texas Rangers’ bats quiet has not been an easy task for pitchers around the American League lately, but […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/15/11 — Jose Bautista

    Playing north of the 49th parallel, the Toronto Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista rarely gets the recognition he deserves.  Last season he led the majors in home runs with a total of 54.  This season he appears to be well on his way to earning the home run title once again, and his performance yesterday afternoon […]

  • Twins’ Alexi Casilla Sees Hail For The First Time (Video)

    Twins’ Alexi Casilla Sees Hail For The First Time (Video)

    Being a member of the Minnesota Twins throughout his five-year Major League Baseball career, second baseman Alexi Casilla hasn’t had to deal with many rain delays, as the Twins have spent most of those seasons playing within the weather-friendly (or at least we thought) confines of the Metrodome. And as far as hail storm delays […]

  • Francisco Liriano Throws A No-Hitter (Video)

    Francisco Liriano Throws A No-Hitter (Video)

    By no means was it the prettiest no-hitter we have ever seen.  In fact, it may have been one of the ugliest we have witnessed in a while, as the Minnesota Twins’ Francisco Liriano allowed zero hits, but dished out a total of six walks and just two strikeouts against the Chicago White Sox batters.  […]

  • Watch Carl Pavano Go Ape Sh*t On A Garbage Can (Video)

    Watch Carl Pavano Go Ape Sh*t On A Garbage Can (Video)

    Minnesota Twins’ starting pitcher Carl Pavano was beaten up by the Kansas City Royals yesterday afternoon to the tune of 12 hits and six earned runs over 5 1/3 innings.  In fact, the only thing to get beaten up worse than Pavano on this day was the garbage can that was forced to bear the […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/16/10 – Minnesota Twins

    The Minnesota Twins came to Chicago to play a series with the White Sox with a 6-game lead in the AL Central. If the White Sox swept or won 2 of 3, their would still be a race going on in that division. Instead, the Twins came in and absolutely buried the White Sox and […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 8/17/10 — Jim Thome

    What may have looked like a normal divisional series between the White Sox and Twins before the season started has become the series to save the White Sox season, or destroy it.  When the Twins came to town on Tuesday, they were holding a 2 game lead over the Sox in the AL Central.  After smoking […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/15/10 – Kevin Slowey

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/15/10 – Kevin Slowey

    Had it not been for an elbow injury sustained earlier in the month, Minnesota Twins’ pitcher Kevin Slowey may have very well been the sixth hurler this season to record a no-hitter (or seventh, if you wish to include Armando Galarraga’s should-be perfect game).  Unfortunately it was not meant to be.  Slowey finished the seventh […]
