Tuesday Twins: Former Twins, future Twins, and no, Mauer will never catch again

It's Tuesday! You know what that means—links: Glen Perkins passed Twins Hall of Fame pitcher Eddie Guardado on the Twins all-time Save list last week, and gave Eddie a really special present. My friend Dana wrote the most compelling article I've ever read for the Twins re-acquiring AJ Pierzynski, yet they still haven't done it? Lame sauce. Twins reliever Ryan Pressly is on his way back to strength. Byron Buxton is hitting again—but, under water. To maintain strength. You know? Apparently, people are still talking about moving Joe Mauer back to catcher like that is...

VIDEO: Angels' Richards works out of bases-loaded jam

Talk about defying the odds. Angels starter Garrett Richards loaded the bases in the eighth with one of the game's great hitters at the plate. But Richards struck out Twins first baseman Joe Mauer to leave the bases full and come out of the inning...

Sano, Plouffe homer to back seven strong innings from Kyle Gibson, Twins beat Tigers 7-1

Twins take three of four from the Tigers, enter the break 49-40. This one looked like it would go the Twins' way from the outset, and nothing that happened subsequently ever changed the nature of the contest. Shane Greene was hit hard from the very first inning, and Kyle Gibson needed little support in keeping the Tigers under his thumb. Miguel Sano launched an 0-2 hanging breaking ball into the seats into the left-center field gap to lead off the scoring, and it could have been a lot worse if Anthony Gose hadn't made an unreal diving catch on the warning track in the gap to rob Joe Mauer...

Twins first baseman Joe Mauer says "it felt good to have something to show for" his good night -- four hits, including a home run -- at the plate Saturday.

Mauer, Twins drop Royals again

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Joe Mauer hit a two-run homer in his first four-hit game in nearly two years, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 5-3 on Saturday night. Mauer, who is 13 for 28 against Royals starter Joe Blanton, homered with Brian Dozier aboard in a three-run first. Aaron Hicks’ grounder scored Trevor Plouffe, who missed the cycle by a home run, with the other run. Plouffe’s triple scored Mauer in the fifth to extend the lead to 4-0. read more

Joe Mauer's first 4-hit game since 2013 lifts Twins over Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Since returning from a serious concussion in 2013, Joe Mauer had yet to experience a four-hit game.

Joe Mauer is far removed from what he was, and yet he's still the hitter that opposing teams are most likely to pitch around.

Joe Mauer's Weird Season

Joe Mauer is having the worst season of his career. He's also having one of the strangest years. At Inside Edge, I have made it to a co-worker's "Top 5 Bottom" list. That is, I am one of his five least favorite people in the office. Now, it's meant to be a joke - even though he may argue otherwise - because all I've done to earn my ranking is from being "a Dozier apologist." Simply put, he doesn't like Brian Dozier, but I do, and that makes me a despicable human being, I guess. Anyway, the real truth is that I'm really a Joe Mauer apologist. No matter what, I have always supported Mauer in...
