Tuesday Twins: Manny Ramirez’s new team gives him unlimited sushi

Hola! Here are the links: Manny Ramirez is currently playing in Japan for the independent league Kochi Island Fighting Dogs, and they are apparently contractually obligated to provide the 44 year-old with unlimited free sushi. Seriously. How are we going to beat that? Unlimited wild rice soup? Unlimited walleye tacos? Unlimited cheese curds imported from Wisconsin? In case you missed it, Ervin Santana officially decided to leave Twins camp and join the Dominican Republic in the WBC. He’ll start for them tonight in San Diego. Nick Nelson of Twins Daily has a great piece about ByungHo...

What will the Twins be missing with Trevor May out?

What will the Twins be missing with Trevor May out?

Though he’d been a reliever, the loss of Trevor May for the upcoming season will probably hurt the starting rotation the most. On July 1, 2015, Twins righty Trevor May took the hill against the Reds at Great American Ballpark for his 24th career start. It was May’s last start before Ervin Santana was to be activated after serving his half-season ban for getting caught “accidentally” taking PEDs. Entering the season, human pitching machine Mike Pelfrey looked to be the odd-man-out of the Twins’ starting rotation. But Santana’s suspension gave Pelfrey an opportunity to start, and...

Twins 10, Colombia 7: Ervin Santana okay as offense plays piranha ball

If you get a bunch of singles with just a couple extra-base hits sprinkled in, you can score a lot of runs. The Twins had some passable pitching today and a lot of hits from the little guys, which led to this blowout win over team Colombia. Ervin Santana hadn’t given up a single run yet coming into this game, but all good things must come to an end. After cruising through two scoreless innings, Santana gave up a lead-off double and subsequent RBI single in the top of the third inning. He gave up a solo-home run the following inning as well. Still, two runs over four innings isn’t that...

Twins 6, Blue Jays 2: Miguel Sano doesn’t strike out, smacks long dinger

Twins 6, Blue Jays 2: Miguel Sano doesn’t strike out, smacks long dinger

Pretty much everything went pretty well for the Twins today except for some defensive errors. The Twins clobbered the Blue Jays today, for once with a little help from young slugger Miguel Sano. Sano—who had struck out in seven of his ten at-bats before today’s game—didn’t strike out one today, and hit the snot out of a ball that sailed well over the left field hence for a two-run home run. Max Kepler also had a good day, going 2-for-3 with a double. Ervin Santana started the game and had a solid outing, despite the fact he almost loaded the bases in the first inning. Ultimately, he...

Twins 9, Marlins 6: ByungHo Park homers again

Twins 9, Marlins 6: ByungHo Park homers again

Ervin Santana had a strong first outing and Korean slugger launched his second bomb in three games this spring. ByungHo Park remained red hot in today’s contest between the Twins and Marlins, which was not broadcast on TV or radio. The aforementioned Korean slugger launched a two-run dong in the bottom of the 1st inning on a 96 mph pitch from Jose Urena. It was especially encouraging considering Park made it a big point over the off-season to shorten his swing in an effort to help him catch up to MLB pitching. Of course, in Park’s next at bat, old friend Caleb Thielbar, now a Marlin,...
