    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

    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)

    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 […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 6/16/10 – Scott Baker

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/16/10 – Scott Baker

    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. The Twins welcomed the Colorado Rockies to town for some interleague play and the new stadium was packed to capacity. The fans didn’t […]

    Your Pork Chop On A Stick Is Not Safe Around Yankee Fans

    After 27 years of calling the Metrodome their home, the Minnesota Twins had undergone a makeover heading into the 2010 MLB season.  Not only do they have themselves a new ballpark, the outdoor confines of the Target Center, but they also have a new ballpark menu. One of the featured new additions to that menu […]

    Denard Span Hits His Own Mom With A Foul Ball (Video)

    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 […]

    New Twins Commercial Features Joe Mauer in Bubble Wrap (Video)

    The Minnesota Twins are finally leaving what is arguably the worst stadium in Major League Baseball, the Metrodome, for a brand new field.  The new state-of-the-art facility will be known as Target Field and will finally allow the Twins to play on a field that doesn’t feel like a giant landfill. To commemorate this new […]

    Twins Fan Gives Metrodome A Final Farewell

    Total Pro sports – When the 2009 MLB season began, we gave you the first ever streaker at the New York Mets’ new Citi Field.  It is only appropriate than now we give you the last ever fan to run onto the field during a Minnesota Twins baseball game at the Metrodome. The Twins played […]
