Recap: Willingham Plays Hero As The Twin End A 3 Game Skid

Josh Willingham 8th inning home run saves the Twins and Minnesota picks up their first victory of the 2nd half. After being swept by the Rays to open the second half of the season, Minnesota defeated the Cleveland Indians by the hammer of Josh. It was Casey Fien coughing up the lead in top of the 8th inning when pinch-hitting Michael Brantley laced a one-out double. Nick Swisher would ground out moving Brantley to 3rd, and Roberto Perez drove in Brantley tying the game. It was then  int the bottom of the 8th, when Josh Willingham's launched one into the left field bleachers and retook the...

Willingham's homer powers Twins past Cleveland Indians, 4-3

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Cleveland Indians were mounting another comeback, and the bullpen was holding strong. Just one off-target slider was the end of that, when Josh Willingham's tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning sent the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory Monday night. Kurt Suzuki had a two-run double among his three hits, Trevor Plouffe hit an RBI double and the Twins beat the Indians at home for the first time in more than 11 months.

Twins Trade Rumors: Willingham a fit for Reds, Royals, Mariners?

Jim Bowden thinks the Reds, Royals, and Mariners are good fits for Josh Willingham, and even throws out who the Twins could get in return from all three teams. Jesse takes a closer look. The Twins are unlikely to get much closer to .500 by July 31, which means they're going to be in the clear position of "seller" at the trade deadline. That's not much of a surprise, nor is it a surprise that Josh Willingham is one of the team's best trade assets. He's an expiring contract of a mid-30s veteran who has been productive in spite of his batting average. Former baseball General Manager and...

Mariners trade target: Josh Willingham

Josh Willingham makes a whole lot of sense as an upgrade in the outfield, and he shouldn't cost too much in return. The fact that the Mariners need to add some talent in the outfield is one of the worst kept secrets in all of baseball. Everyone knows they need something better than Endy Chavez and Dustin Ackley, and most people seem to assume it has to be a right-handed bat. It makes sense, after all. The Mariners don't have a lot of offensive firepower, and their lineup is super lefty-heavy. But adding any kind of upgrade in the outfield, left-handed or right-handed, would be a welcome...

Twins trade rumors: the market for Josh Willingham

Unless you're judging Josh Willinham's offensive value solely on batting average, it turns out this guy is still a pretty good hitter. Yesterday afternoon, Josh Willingham belted (which is an understatement) his eighth home run of the 2014 campaign. Eight home runs isn't a lot for early July, but keep in mind that was also just the 41st game for Willingham this season. Do the math, and in a full season he's still capable of producing 25 to 30 home runs a year. It's been a hard road for Hammer since the 35-homer campaign of 2012. Injuries bottomed out his 2013 season, and things didn't look...
Struggling Twins slugger Josh Willingham to take a 'breather'

Struggling Twins slugger Josh Willingham to take a 'breather'

Sometimes, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said before Friday's game with the visiting New York Yankees, a breather can be a good thing.

Postgame Twinsights: Slumping Josh Willingham continues his slide

Last time the Twins played the New York Yankees, Josh Willingham homered twice in the series as the visitors took two of three at Yankee Stadium. That included a leadoff homer in the ninth off fellow Alabamaian David Robertson to key a six-run uprising in the series finale on June 1. Thursday night, a slumping Willingham went 0 for 4 and struck out twice, once off Robertson in the ninth. That dropped the veteran slugger to 6 for 53 (.113) with two homers and two doubles over his past 17 games since June 13. The Twins are 6-11 in those games as the 35-year-old left fielder has struck......
