What to do at the trade deadline?

What to do at the trade deadline?

Despite trailing Cleveland by nearly 10 games in the AL Central, it’s not completely clear whether the Twins should buy or sell at the July 31st trade deadline. I don’t know why I’m writing - er, typing - this. As far as I’m concerned, the entire notion is completely absurd. Cleveland currently leads the AL Central by 8 1⁄2 games and after winning five games in a row, the Twins were blown out by the lowly Kansas City Royals. Granted, those five wins came against the Royals and the equally bad Baltimore Orioles, but a win is a win, right? Because of those wins and the fact that...

Slegers: Bad games hurt more in majors

Twins righthander Aaron Slegers says bad nights, like his loss to the Royals on Tuesday, are part of baseball, but they’re more painful at the major-league level.

Royals 9, Twins 4: Losing is fine too, I guess

Royals 9, Twins 4: Losing is fine too, I guess

What’s the difference at this point, really? The Royals had lost 10 in a row coming into today and the Twins were one a winning streak of half the size. So consider tonight some universal course correction. Aaron Slegers is, A: An obscenely tall man, and B: the pitcher that started for the Twins. He last 1.1 innings, which is approximately 7.2 innings less than ideal. The Royals only scored 1 in the first, a run which Brian Dozier promptly Dozier Donged into obscurity, tying the game at one. Things proceeded into the darkest timeline, however, once the game turned the page to the second...

Royals snap losing streak, beat Twins 9-4

Royals snap losing streak, beat Twins 9-4

Adalberto drives in four. The winning streak has started. The Royals even up the series in Minneapolis with a 9-4 victory, snapping a losing streak of 10. Ian Kennedy, making the return from the disabled list, struggled with base runners in his three innings of work, ultimately giving up two runs before leaving the game. The Royals got their run scoring started in the first inning, with Whit Merrifield and doubling and Salvador Perez driving him in with a single. After the Twins tied it up with a home run in the first, the Royals tacked on four runs in the second inning, three combing by...

Twins starter Aaron Slegers' short-lived success doesn't last long against Royals

Game Thread 91: Royals at Twins

Game Thread 91: Royals at Twins

Is tonight the night? Probably not. The Royals take on the Twins in the second game of a road series, looking to avoid their losing streak reaching 11 games. Starting for the Royals will be Ian Kennedy making his quick return for the disabled list. The Royals will be facing Aaron Slegers, who will making his second start of the season. Oh yeah, Escobar is back in the lineup. So a new streak officially begins. Two and counting!

Testing the Trade Waters: the Royals and Twins

Testing the Trade Waters: the Royals and Twins

It’s trade deadline season and the Mariners look like buyers, so let’s examine who might be sellers Somehow, July is already a third over and the All-Star Break is upon us, which means the trade deadline is sneaking up as well. That lends a little extra edge to tweets like these: Mariners, Braves, Diamondbacks, Phillies among teams with scouts at Target Field for #MNTwins-#Royals. As oftentimes, hard to pinpoint normal scouting duties vs. trade specific work. Certainly a number of players on both sides are available.— Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) July 10, 2018 Obviously, normal...
