Twins: Joe Mauer's days off

Joe Mauer was given a day off. And not a day off after a night game, or a day off after getting hit in the head by a pitch. He was given a day off after an off day.

Tuesday Twins: Miguel Sano is the unofficial clubhouse bouncer now

Tuesday Twins: Miguel Sano is the unofficial clubhouse bouncer now

Welcome to Tuesday! Here are your links: Travis Sawchik of FanGraphs has a really, really great interview with Byron Buxton and you just have to read it. Buxton talks about anxiousness at the plate and what he’s doing to overcome it. Also, Miguel Sano does a funny. Speaking of Miguel Sano, Fangraphs also has a piece on him murdering baseballs. Our friends at Bless You Boys recently did a round up of the AL Central Division, and boy are they kind to Joe Mauer. They are also baffled by the Twins being in first place, of course. Did you know minor leaguers use a different baseball than big...

Twins 7, White Sox 6: Twins win despite Twins

Twins 7, White Sox 6: Twins win despite Twins

Twins show there is no such thing as “too many runs.” So things started out well, as Twins games sometimes do. Then, well, threads came loose, as Twins games often do. Derek Holland struck out Brian Dozier to start the game. He then walked the next batter and seemed to get frustrated when what he thought was a strike was called ball four, walking Miguel Sano. The Twins jumped all over him. Joe Mauer batted in Robbie Grossman from third. Then with two on, Eduardo Escobar hit a bomb over the left center field wall to make the score 4-0 Twins. In the 2nd, Dozier hit a solo Doze Bomb and...

Brandon Kintzler is an unprecedented closer

Brandon Kintzler is an unprecedented closer

And also maybe not a very good closer All the headlines from Friday night’s 4-3 come-from-behind win over Boston focused on Joe Mauer, and rightfully so, after the Twins’ first baseman and local boy smacked his first-career walk-off home run. But if the game had ended differently — if, say, the Red Sox had rallied in the top of the 10th to seal the comeback win — all that ink would have been directed at the Twin who got the team in that mess in the first place: Brandon Kintzler. Kintzler entered in the ninth with a 3-1 lead, an opportunity to secure his eighth save in eight...
