Twins 3, Rays 7: Twins were Out-Priced

The Rays got to Gibson early in the first inning, and despite a couple of home runs, the Twins were unable to muster much in response to David Price. Whelp. Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson entered tonight's game 3-0 with three strong starts, but not all good things can last. Trouble started early as Kyle let three runs score in the bottom of the first. Rays hitter David Dejesus added on in the third inning with a 2-run single. It looked like it was already all over for the Twins. But wait! Then there was hope. Brian Dozier led off the top of the 4th with a home run. Joe Mauer followed up...

How Do the Twins Have the Second-Best Offense in Baseball?

Wait, what? As of this morning, the Minnesota Twins have scored 98 runs in 18 games. The Rockies lead all of baseball in runs scored, with 114, but with 21 games played to Minnesota's 18 it's the Twins who are second in the league in runs per game. Team Games Runs RPG White Sox 20 109 5.45 Twins 18 98 5.44 Rockies 21 114 5.43 Angels 19 101 5.32 For those outside of Twins Territory who don't watch the team on a daily basis, seeing these results - even in a small sample size - is going to be a bit surprising.

Twinsights: Joe Mauer drops a bunt single on his 31st birthday

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Joe Mauer has 20 bunt hits in his career, but the Twins first baseman couldn’t remember the last time he’d bunted against a shift before Saturday. “To be honest with you, I have no idea,” said Mauer, who turned 31 on Saturday. “It’s probably been awhile though.” With the Twins trailing by three runs in the top of the fifth, Mauer dropped a bunt single down the third-base line against left-hander Br...

Wednesday Morning Links: Mauer, Cheaters, Pranks, Racism, and More

This awful weather this week is bringing back shades of last season. I remember working three games against the Tigers where the game time temperature was in the 40s every day. That sucked. Phil Mackey wrote about Joe Mauer and said that we should see him for the player he is, and he's pretty darn similar to Tony Gwynn, Rod Carew, Paul Molitor, and Wade Boggs. All are in the Hall of Fame. I think Mauer will be just fine. Michael Pineda pitched a game against the Red Sox with obvious pine tar on his hand, and he was not ejected, suspended, nor did the world combust because a supposed...

Charley Walters: Twins' Joe Mauer frustrated by umps' ball-strike calls

Historically, major league catchers, when batting, have tended to be beneficiaries of borderline ball-strike calls by umpires. That's because catchers spend a lot of time working closely with umpires, many times developing nice relationships.
