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...

Tigers 6, Twins 5: Woes continue into May

The calendar turning over wasn't enough for the Twins to pull out a win today. Today's game was a battle to the death between Ricky Nolasco and Mike Pelfrey; neither pitcher did well. The Twins got to Pelf early, scoring 2 runs in the first. Both runs came after 2 outs when it looked like Pelfrey would have a quick inning. We've read this book before. Park and Arcia delivered the RBIs, Mauer and Sano the runs, Twins 2-0. Not to be outdone, Ricky Nolasco gave up a run of his own in the 2nd on a sac fly, but limited the damage to just 1. In the 5th Anthony Gose tripled with 2 outs, and Jose...

Ricky Nolasco: Quiet Hero

Despite the struggles from multiple parts of the Twins, Ricky Nolasco has quietly been a solid performer this season. This season certainly has been a frustrating one for Twins players and fans alike. We knew there would be plenty of strikeouts, but not this many. The bullpen was going to be a bit rough around the edges, but blowing this many leads? Amongst it all, though, has been an unlikely positive contributor this season: Ricky Nolasco. Through four starts, he's averaged just under 7 innings per start, he has a stellar 3.25 ERA, and he even helped in other ways by eating up 7 1/3...
