Twinsights: All-star pressure got to Joe Mauer, manager says

BALTIMORE -- Now it can be told. For the first time Friday, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire shared his theory that Joe Mauer’s alarmingly slow first half was due to the pressure he felt in trying to make the first all-star game played in his hometown in a generation. “There’s no doubt he was pressing before the all-star game,” Gardenhire said. “It’s the first time in my career as a manager here that I’ve seen Joe Mauer really want something bad, and that was to play in that all-star game. I really think that played a part in it. I don’t think [...] The post Twinsights: All-star...

Twins, Tigers split double-header: Minnesota wins big in game one, not enough pitching in game two

Minnesota and Detroit split a double-header. Game OneTwins 12, Tigers 4 @TwinkieTown Your baseball team is mean — Bless You Boys (@blessyouboys) August 23, 2014 After scoring 20 runs on Friday night, I half expected the Twins to combine for seven runs all day on Saturday. I was wrong. Minnesota threw down a six-run second in game one, catapulting them to a 12-run performance that smothered the Tigers. Joe Mauer opened the scoring with a single to score Brian Dozier in the first, but the second is where it went to hell in a hand basket for Detroit. Jordan Schafer tripled to empty the...
