Royals 7, Twins 4: Almost Kinda Won, Then Lost

Kansas City struck early with a 2-run HR off the bat of Salvador Perez, and proceeded to pile on over the next few innings. Ervin Santana couldn't keep the Royals off the basepaths, giving up 6 runs before being pulled in the 4th. The Twins did manage to score 4 of their own thanks to some Royal's Fielding™ miscues and good days at the plate by Oswaldo Arcia and Eduardo Escobar, coming within two runs of tying the game in the 5th. The Royals would score again in the 6th because they hate our happiness. In the bottom of the 9th, an Escobar double, followed by back-to-back walks for Brian...

Series Preview: Twins at Tigers

Could the Twins win back to back series? Is this allowed? The Tigers(16-21) aren't doing so hot. Actually, they're doing slightly worse than the Twins in their last 13 games. They've only won 2 of their last 13 games (in which we've won an outstanding 3). When we met earlier this year the Tigers swept us, though. They're entering a lighter part of their schedule where they face us, the Rays and the Phillies. The Tigers need to win most of these games to get back into the playoff conversation. Who's hot: Juan Centeno: 6-10, 2 2B, HR Victor Martinez: 13-25 (.520) Who's not: Oswaldo Arcia:...

Sox Blast Twins, 10-4

The Twins fall 13 games below .500, but I guess they got in a dumb fight or something. Ricky Nolasco got rocked early, the Twins middle-inning comeback fell short, and the AL-best White Sox cruised to another victory in a 10-4 beatdown of your Minnesota Twins. After 24 hours of roster upheaval, it was fair to wonder how the team would respond.  The answer: About the same as they've been responding to everything, but they got in a fight, too. To their credit, the Twins did not give up after being in a hole right away again.  Trailing 5-1, Oswaldo Arcia stroked a majestic dong and Miguel...

Twins getting bang for their buck with Byung Ho Park

Many scratched their heads when Terry Ryan signed Korean first baseman Byung Ho Park last fall, but check out who looks smart now. Baseball fans and writers were a bit surprised last November when it came out that the Twins had won the bid to exclusively negotiate a deal with Korean slugger Byung Ho Park. After all, Park was a power-hitting first baseman and the Twins already had Joe Mauer at first, Miguel Sano as the designated hitter, and Trevor Plouffe playing third (not to mention big boppers Oswaldo Arcia and Kennys Vargas, who were also first base/DH candidates). Fast-forward to...

Tuesday Twins: Oswaldo Arcia is terrorizing Twins first base coach Butch Davis

The links are here: Apparently, Oswaldo Arcia has made it his hobby to beat up first base coach Butch Davis. Trevor Plouffe has been reinstated off the DL and Jorge Polanco optioned to AAA. John Ryan Murphy had some choice words for the ump that got him thrown out of the game yesterday... hey, wait a second. What? Somehow, the Twins bullpen actually ranks fourth in the American League in strikeouts per nine innings. Joe Mauer's magic sunglasses seem to be working. Someone over at Rant Sports is convinced the Twins have to trade Byron Buxton now before he loses all...
