Correia: Getting ahead the key

Twins starting pitcher Kevin Correia says getting ahead in the count helped him limit the Royals to two runs over six innings.

Royals 6, Twins 3: Correia pitches a solid start, but the Twins end up falling apart

Kevin Correia only gave up two earned runs, which should be enough for a team to win—except if your team is the [gosh] [darn] mother [happy] Twins. Danny Santana started off tonight's game great for the Twins with a lead-off home-run. The Twins extended their early lead to 2-0 in the top of the third, thanks in part to a air-mailed throw by Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas. Unfortunately, for the Twins, it was largely downhill from there. Even though many Twins fans will probably treat him as the whipping boy, Twins starter Kevin Correia pitched six innings tonight and gave up only...

Twins trade rumors: Suzuki, Willingham, Correia, Duensing, Fien

This afternoon's daily wrap courtesy of opinions from around the interwebs. I'll keep flipping back and forth between the content dashboard and Twitter in between sentences, but as of right now the Twins have yet to make a follow-up trade to the Kendrys Morales to Seattle maneuver. Here's what some of the best and brightest have for you today. LEN III had a nice overnight update, including how the front office will function this week as it handles the trade deadline and a road trip simultaneously. He outlines the situations of Kurt Suzuki, Josh Willingham, and Kevin Correia, but he also...

Correia Lit Up As White Sox Thump Twins, 9-5

Correia Lit Up As White Sox Thump Twins, 9-5

They look like sellers. If you were five minutes late tuning in to Friday's game, you missed Kevin Correia putting the Twins in an immediate hole, surrendering a majestic, 3-run dong to Chicago's Jose Abreu.  It was a hole the Twins were never able to crawl out of, as the White Sox cruised to a 9-5 victory. With both their long relievers (Samuel Deduno and Anthony Swarzak) unavailable, Minnesota needed Correia to be effective, or failing that, at least pitch for 6-7 innings.  He was able to do neither, getting pasted to the tune of seven runs and 10 hits over the course of four...

Postgame: White Sox 9, Twins 5

Kevin Correia didn't give the Twins the strong start they needed to help an overtaxed bullpen, and a strong finish by the offense didn't provide much comfort.

Wednesday (Itching for a look at May, Meyer) edition: Wha' Happened?

This is a make-or-break home stand for the Twins. The players have said it. Management has said it. Logically, everyone knows it. Though the odds were stacked against Minnesota at the All-Star break, they came out of it with a 44-50 record, 6.5 games back in the Wild Card race. A big home stand — say, 8-2 — would have squared their record at .500 and gave at least the glimmer of meaningful games in August. But their starting pitching, as it has done every year starting in 2011, failed them. First it was the regulars (Kyle Gibson, Phil Hughes and Kevin Correia) blowing up in a three-game...

Twins 9, Rockies 3: Correia continues to roll as offense explodes

Kevin Correia destroys your expectations and eats them for dinner. Going into Saturday's game, we knew that Carlos Gonzalez had a pretty dangerous history against Kevin Correia. Plus, humidify those baseballs all you want, Coors Field is still an extreme hitter's ballpark. So, sure, you might be forgiven for being a bit concerned at seeing Correia take the hill. As it turns out, Correia did what he's been doing through what is now seven consecutive starts: forcing batters into making poor contact and getting a little help from his defense. Highlights are full of balls bouncing up the...

Going streaking with Kevin Correia

Going streaking with Kevin Correia

Guess which Twins pitcher has been the best lately. Yep. Kevin Correia. Last April, Kevin Correia put us all on our heels by streaking through April. In five starts he compiled a 2.23 ERA in 36.1 innings and generally, was as good as anyone could dream him to be. And it was fantastic, because Correia is actually a really easy guy to cheer for. He went the rest of 2013 with a 4.65 ERA, which is closer to what we expected him to give us heading into the season. Nevertheless he was consistent and certainly not terrible, so we knew that 2014 would be an interesting season for Correia. ...

Twins shut out by Iwakuma, Mariners

Kevin Correia couldn't have teed up a pitch any better than if he had a tee.

Thursday (Kevin Correia has been as advertised) edition: Wha' Happened?

It was fashionable before the 2013 season to rip the Twins for signing starting pitcher Kevin Correia. He wasn’t quite a journeyman, having pitched for three teams since making his debut in 2003, but he was a classic low-upside, pitch-to-contact guy. There was nothing special about any of his previous seasons. For two years and a relatively modest $10 million total, the Twins were banking on getting a rotation filler: a guy who would take the ball every fifth day and grind his way through six innings. How you view that kind of pitcher likely shaped how you felt about the signing. A rotation...
