    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

    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 […]

    The Twins opened Target Field this year after almost 3 decades in that hefty bag known as the Metrodome. I think it’s safe to say that the Twins like their new ballpark.

    Being the good son that he is, Denard Span thought it would be a great idea go get his mom some seats next to his team’s dugout for their pre-season game yesterday afternoon against the New York Yankees.  Yes, at that point he was likely on the top of his mother’s “people I love the […]
