Twins Continue Adequate Streak, Run Rays 6-2

Eddie Rosario, Miguel Sano dongs highlight victory. When you're tasked with recapping a Twins game, and the only sporting events within your grasp are the Rio Olympics opening ceremonies and a trash Brewers/Diamondbacks game, you compensate by intensely scanning the ESPN crawl and watching Maija's Twitter feed. On that note, here is my story about Minnesota's 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Ervin Santana continued a run of strong, trade-baiting starts, striking out 8 Tampamen in 6.1 innings of work. SOMEBODY PLEASE GIVE US TWO GOOD PROSPECTS FOR ERVIN SANTANA WE DON'T ASK FOR...

Twins, Blue Jays Discussing Ervin Santana Trade

Several pitchers could be coming back to the Twins if the deal is finalized. According to Jon Morosi, the Twins and Blue Jays are having talks centered around starting pitcher Ervin Santana. After a rough start to the season, Santana has a 3.66 ERA overall in 20 starts while averaging roughly six innings per start. Though his strikeout rate is down (a below-average 17.2 percent), he’s excelled at getting weak contact and staving off home runs, which have been an issue at times during his career. As for who could come back to the Twins, it’s currently unknown but Mike Berardino has...

Braves 2, Twins 0: RISP-ed

It was a quick and boring ballgame tonight at Target Field. Ervin Santana went all 9 innings for the Twins, in what would be a tough-luck loss for the righty. Braves 3B Adonis Garcia homered to left in the 2nd. In the 3rd, an AJ Pierzynksi double followed by a Eric Aybar single would set the Braves up for their second run. Jace Peterson grounded into a double play, which is never what you want to do. Luckily for him, in this instance it allowed a run to score anyway and he got a nice RBI to put on the back of his baseball card. Santana didn't make much for mistakes afterwords, but the...
