Twins 6, Yankees 1: Eat some juicy LOBster, Yankee fans

Twins 6, Yankees 1: Eat some juicy LOBster, Yankee fans

For the first time in Target Field, Minnesota takes a series against New York. In the second inning of THIS GAME YOU MISSED BECAUSE YOU FORGOT THE SERIES PREVIEW, two hits and a walk loaded the bases for Yankee 3B Ronald Torreyes. Pitching coach Neil Allen visited the mound, said “don’t suck,” Jose Berrios said “OK,” and got Torreyes to weakly ground out. Score: Yankees 0, Twins 0. In the second inning of this game NOW YOU’RE SORRY YOU MISSED, Max Kepler flew out, Chris Gimenez singled, Ehire Adrianza doubled, and Jorge Polanco flew out, leaving it all up to lifetime Yankee fan...

Minnesota Twins 2017 midterm grades

Minnesota Twins 2017 midterm grades

Since it’s the All-Star Break, let’s take a look at how the team has performed so far. The All-Star break is the unofficial “halftime” of the MLB season, so let’s take a look at the surprising Minnesota Twins team, and see how they rate so far. 1B: A- Players: Joe Mauer, 66 games; Kennys Vargas, 22 games; Miguel Sano, 6 games; Chris Gimenez 5 games. Joe Mauer has played gold-glove caliber defense, and been hitting well for the last few months. Kennys Vargas has been an acceptable defensive replacement when he has been with the team. The problem is the lack of a real back-up...

Red Sox 4, Twins 1. Twins offense stagnant

Red Sox 4, Twins 1. Twins offense stagnant

Twins can’t buy a bunt...or runs The Red Sox got to Twins starter Jose Berrios early tonight with Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia leading off with two singles to start the bottom of the first. Betts would come in to score on a double play ball and Mitch Moreland followed with a solo home run shot to give the Sox an early 2-0 lead. The Twins cut the lead in half in the 3rd on a solo home run by catcher Chris Gimenez. From there on the Twins offense came up short against Chris Sale and the Red Sox bullpen with the only real scoring opportunity coming in the 6th with 2 runners on and nobody...

Twins 5, Indians 0: 13 Walk-Off Thoughts on Trevor Bauer, a rough second inning, BABIP regression

Here are 13 Walk-Off Thoughts after the Indians’ 5-0 loss to the Minnesota Twins Friday night. 1. Trevor Bauer has been searching for answers all season. He’s now 6-6 this season with a 5.53 ERA. He’s been striking out batters at a career-best rate and is among baseball’s leaders with a 10.29 K/9 rate, which is seventh in the game. But he’s still not putting together a stretch like he did in the middle of last season, when he simplified things while working with catcher Chris Gimenez. 2. On Friday night, it was a location issue. Bauer began finding the middle of the plate—as...

That was fast: Dillon Gee joins Twins

That was fast: Dillon Gee joins Twins

The veteran pitcher signed a minor-league deal on Tuesday. The Twins capped a very long Thursday (5-hour rain delay, another truly wretched outing from a non-Santana/Berrios starter, another Chris Gimenez relief appearance) by making a couple roster moves. As noted by Myjah, the Twins sent down Nik Turley and placed Ehire Adrianza on the DL. After another day of churning through bullpen arms, they’re calling up two pitchers: reliever and 2014 draft pick Trevor Hildenberger (interviewed by Myjah here) and veteran free agent arm Dillon Gee. Gee, 30, has been around the block, and is pretty...

Potential Relief Help

Potential Relief Help

The bullpen has been a problem this year, but improvements could be just a phone call away. It’s no secret that the pitching staff has been a severe weakness for the Twins. The starting rotation has been mediocre behind Ervin Santana and Jose Berrios, the reliable pitchers in the bullpen is a list that contains strictly Brandon Kintzler, Tyler Duffey, and Taylor Rogers, and it seems as if Chris Gimenez takes the mound once a week. Having only five good pitchers when you need to rely on 12 or 13 is problematic when you’re at (or near) the top of your division. While plenty of Twins...
