Twins 2, Red Sox 1: Mike Pelfrey out-pitches Clay Buchholz

Mike Pelfrey earns a well-fought victory. Most of us have seen Finding Nemo. If you haven't, there's a fish called Dory who's quite forgetful and her mantra is "Just keep swimming." You can hear it now, right? Right now I feel like Minnesota's mantra is "Just keep winning." A well-intentioned but perhaps over-matched character, a bit out of its depth, seeing nothing but the few inches in front of its collective face: just keep winning. Mike Pelfrey was hitting his spots and some of the movement he was getting on his pitches was astounding. When he's able to paint the corners and get good...

Postgame Twinsights: Mike Pelfrey deals, then dances

Was there any doubt which Twins player would be required to dance in the winning clubhouse after this one? "I actually danced," Twins starter Mike Pelfrey said after going seven strong innings in a 2-1 win over the Boston Red Sox. "Lot of cheers. I think they've probably cheered for everything. I can’t imagine a 6-7 white guy being that good, but I danced." Does the man from Wichita has a go-to move? "No," he said. "I just try to follow what Torri (Hunter) does. He’s got a little better rhythm than me." This was actually the second time Pelfrey was […] The post Postgame Twinsights:...

Twinsights: Disco Twins can't wait to dance again

CHICAGO -- Returning home means more than it used to for the Twins. These days, it also means having a daily opportunity to dance and carry on with the postgame disco party they hold in their clubhouse after wins. “You got some guys that like to get almost all the way naked and go in there and surround a guy,” Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey said.”It’s pretty entertaining. You can imagine us being frustrated when we lose at home and don’t get to see that. It’s pretty good. It’s fun.” The budding tradition, which was the brainchild of Twins right fielder Torii […] The post...

Postgame Twinsights: Sluggin' Mike Pelfrey, Maneuverin' Mollie

PITTSBURGH--Just before Twins manager Paul Molitor sent up Eddie Rosario to pinch hit for starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey, the veteran righty turned to his skipper with a grin. "You know I'm 2 for 2, right?" Pelfrey said. Molitor just laughed. With a 3-1 lead through six innings and a pitch count at 93, Pelfrey had done his job on the mound. He did work at the plate as well in this 4-3 win in 13 innings, despite entering the night batting .098 in 305 career plate appearances. Pelfrey reached on an infield single and a sharp hit to left, marking the […] The post Postgame Twinsights: Sluggin'...

Twins Continue to Roll, Dump Cleveland 9-3

That's 8 of 9 now. This is getting serious. A huge night from Torii Hunter keyed another offensive outburst as the Twins cruised to a 9-3 win over Cleveland.  Hunter contributed a solo dong, two doubles and 4 RBI on his way to a 4-for-4 night (plus a walk). Meanwhile, Mike Pelfrey shook off a sketchy start to pitch seven groundball-intensive innings and run his record to 3-0 and ERA to 2.62.  Twinkie Town has been unable to confirm if Pelfrey has received another contract extension through 2022. The Twins opened the scoring on a Joe Mauer single (not a homer) that drove in Hunter after...
