Ricky Nolasco to the disabled list, Twins recall Trevor May

Good thing the Twins didn't trade any of that starting pitcher depth. It looks like Ricky Nolasco's elbow has "flared up" again. His first start was something both he and the team and the fans would be willing to write off permanently, but now we're adding injury to insult. Nolasco is heading to the 15-day disabled list. In Nolasco's place comes Trevor May. May was set to start for the Red Wings tomorrow, but with the Twins in need of another arm he'll join Minnesota and probably take Nolasco's next start - which would be Monday. Tommy Milone, Mike Pelfrey, and Phil Hughes are scheduled to...

Welcome to Opening Day!

Twins baseball returns. Opening Day for your own team is always a beautiful thing. Granted, we were dealt a blow on Friday as news of the Ervin Santana suspension came down, but even then it's impossible to completely drown out the joy of baseball actually being back. We all have our questions. How long will Mike Pelfrey last? Can Torii Hunter put together one more decent campaign? How will Paul Molitor's influence play out in the wins column? When will the organization finally turn the Major League team over to the young players who will actually help this club win games in the future?...

When your team's player gets suspended for steroid use: A guide to cope

It's okay, Twins fans—and by "okay," I mean it is not okay. Not at all. You've likely heard by now that the Twins new free-agent pitching aquisition, Ervin Santana, has been suspended for 80 games for testing positive to the performance enhancing drug "Stanozolol" (that is the actual name of the drug, lol). This development essentially means Santana, the team's number-two starting pitcher, will now be replaced by the team's new number-five starting pitcher, Mike Pelfrey. I know, I know—I feel it too. It is normal to feel various stages of grief and anger at this time. It's ok. To help...

SARASOTA, Fla. --Twins general manager Terry Ryan and disgruntled right-hander Mike Pelfrey had a conversation in the wake of Pelfrey’s demotion to the bullpen on Saturday. “It was a healthy exchange,” Ryan said. “I listened and so did he. It’s one of those situations.” Asked if Pelfrey had requested a trade, Ryan would not say. “I’m not going to address that either,” he said. “I don’t want to get in too deep.  There’s no sense in getting too involved in exactly what’s taken place in a private discussion.” Was Pelfrey, who was admittedly “upset” a day earlier,...
