New York Yankees 11, Minnesota Twins 3: Bronx Bomb

We are shocked — shocked! — by this outcome. Before rectalysing what went wrong in this game, let’s remember the good times, shall we? Top of the third, 0-0, one out. Kennys Vargas gets an infield hit. Jason Castro singles, and speedster Kennys takes third. Brian Dozier walks. Then Joe Mauer comes up. We’ll turn now to our ace gamethread reporter, McLoser Asshat, Jr.: TRAAAAAPPPP Joe lines to left, foul ball ... bad memories Pretty good AB, Joe Full count, baby Severino at 100 MPH COME ON JOE (this from myjah) Fourth catcher trip to the mound this AB This is the longest at-bat ever...

Blue Jays 4, Twins 3: Bartolo and the gang can’t bang out another win.

After an early lead, Twins fall to Jays 4-3 The Twins hit the scoreboard first, but the Jays fought back to take the lead and Game 2 of the series 4-3. Bartolo Colon pitched pretty sexy through the first four innings, then he pitched like your average middle-aged guy with a silly nickname. Joe Mauer drove the first run on a sac fly in the 3rd. Catcher Chris Giminez did the same in the 4th making it 2-0 Twins. The Jays finally got on the board in the 5th on a Kevin Pillar solo homer, and again in the 6th with Josh Donaldson being the man to take Colon deep this time. Meanwhile, Brian...

Minnesota Twins 3, San Diego Padres 1: Rosario dongs 10th-inning win

Minnesota Twins 3, San Diego Padres 1: Rosario dongs 10th-inning win

Eddie Rosario saves the day, and Minnesota stays in the #2 wildcard spot. You knew that after yesterday’s 16-0 whomping of the Padres, Minnesota would scuffle to score tonight. It makes no sense, statistically; teams don’t use up all their offense in a big win and have nothing left over for the next game. That’s illogical & irrational. But you knew it would happen, nonetheless. For this is baseball, where the Weird is King. Perhaps the awareness only came to you after Joe Mauer got caught stealing in the first inning (it was a hit-and-run, but still: really, Molitor?) Or when the...

The resurgence of Joe Mauer

The resurgence of Joe Mauer

You may not have noticed that while he’s still not back to who he was at his peak, Joe Mauer appears to have finally rebounded from his struggles over the past couple years. In this season of unexpected twists and turns, one has quietly flown under the radar and that’s Joe Mauer. Especially since his concussion and subsequent move to 1st base, it’s become in vogue to rip on him and his $23 million per year contract, though that really started happening the moment we all realized he wasn’t hitting more than a dozen home runs in a season again. After all, prior to his concussion,...

Jake Odorizzi flirts with no-hitter as Rays beat Twins (w/video)

ST. PETERSBURG One thing we think we know after the Rays' 2-1 win over the Twins on Tuesday is that had Joe Mauer's seventh-inning ground ball not hit second base and taken too high of a bounce for Adeiny Hechavarria to make the play, Jake Odorrizzi's no-hitter would have remained intact
