Twins 8, Angels 7: Hanging in there

Ultimately, we won I didn’t totally jinx Jake Odorizzi today, although his scoreless streak did end at 22 innings. In the third inning, Tommy La Stella hit a big fly ball to right field, to put the Halos on the board and break Odorizzi’s nice little streak. The Twins had already scored two runs though, in the bottom of the second, when Ehire Adrianza (who has been really good against Cahill) hit a double that plated both Jonathan Schoop and C.J. Cron. Byron Buxton provided some cushion to his pitcher in the fifth with his second dinger of the season, which also brought Jason Castro...

Series Preview: Tigers vs. Twins

We’re only a month into the season, but the Twins look like they are for real. Heading into this season, many saw the Minnesota Twins as potential challengers to the Cleveland Indians atop the AL Central. The Tribe did not do much to improve their team during the offseason, while the Twins aggressively made moves to shore up a club that finished a distant second, at 78-84 in 2018. In came C.J. Cron, Nelson Cruz, Marwin Gonzalez, Martin Perez, Jonathan Schoop, and Blake Parker to help support a young nucleus, one that the Twins front office hoped would take a step forward and bring the...

Twins 6, Astros 2: A well-rounded, dominant win

Martin Perez pitched eight shutout innings and Jonathan Schoop hit a triple-decker. That was a fun one, folks. The Twins jumped out to a relatively early lead and watched their starter throw eight shutout innings while the offense added on a few more runs. But, first things first: is Martin Perez ... good? Yours truly could not have been the only Twins fan who was baffled at a) the Twins’ signing of Perez in the offseason and b) the amount of money they paid Perez and his 4.63 career ERA. Apparently, the adjustments that pitching coach Wes Johnson and the Twins staff have made to...
