Kansas City Royals: Making the case, Minnesota Twins free agents

The Minnesota Twins were impressive in 2019. Some of their key pieces will be free agents in 2020 and worth consideration for the Kansas City Royals. 2019 was the first season for the Minnesota Twins with new manager Rocco Baldelli and their first season since 2004 without longtime catcher/first baseman Joe Mauer. They would exceed […] Kansas City Royals: Making the case, Minnesota Twins free agents - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - A Kansas City Royals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

What the Yankees can expect from Luis Severino in the ALCS

What the Yankees can expect from Luis Severino in the ALCS

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports The right-hander had his ups and downs against the Twins, but ended up throwing four scoreless anyway. The Yankees will enter the ALCS with three certainties in the rotation: James Paxton, Masahiro Tanaka, and Luis Severino. The latter pitched in Game Three against the Minnesota Twins and held them in check for four innings. Let’s breakdown that performance. Severino’s slider was inconsistent in his outing against the Twins. At times, it didn’t have his accustomed bite, and he left a couple of them in the heart of the zone, a situation that the Twins...

Minnesota Twins make easiest decision of offseason with Nelson Cruz

The Minnesota Twins hold a team option on Nelson Cruz for the 2020 season. Yeah…about that… When the Minnesota Twins signed Nelson Cruz to a one year deal worth $14.3 million, and a $12 million team option for 2020, it seemed like a potential bargain. Cruz had been one of the better sluggers in the […] Minnesota Twins make easiest decision of offseason with Nelson Cruz - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Minnesota Twins: Does Jake Odorizzi warrant a qualifying offer?

2019 ALDS Game Three: Time, how to watch, and online streaming info

Photo by Brace Hemmelgarn/Minnesota Twins/ Here’s what you need to know as the ALDS resumes in Minnesota The ALDS has gone near-flawlessly for the Yankees so far. The Bombers carry a commanding two-game lead into Target Field, where they have a chance to eliminate the Twins on their own field. That sounds like the club’s plan, too. When asked what he said to the team after the Game Two victory, Aaron Boone gave Randy Miller two words: “Throttle down.” The Bombers don’t plan on easing up now. They put the Twins on the ropes, and now they’re ready to deliver the knockout blow....

Minnesota Twins postseason nightmare is real

The Minnesota Twins have lost 15 straight postseason games, and their nightmare just keeps going. “Uber! Uber! Uber!” Those were the chants coming from the right-field stands at Yankee Stadium after Minnesota Twins manager Rocco Baldelli took out Uber Driver Randy Dobnak with the bases loaded.

ALDS Game One: New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins: James Paxton vs. Jose Berrios

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Here we go. It’s here! After four days of waiting, the Yankees’ playoff run will finally begin tonight. The Yankees will hope to play deep into the month and eventually add a 28th World Series title to their tally. Before any of that can happen, they have to get through the ALDS against the Twins. On paper, this will be a battle of two of the most impressive offenses in baseball. The two teams finished first and second in home runs, becoming the first and second to ever hit 300 in a season. Combined with the occasionally less than stellar pitching the...

How the Yankees can beat the Twins

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees will want to be sharp in these areas to advance to the ALCS The Yankees’ season can end in as little as three or as many as five games, and standing in their way is the Minnesota Twins. These two teams do a lot of the same things: they hit a wild amount of home runs, they’re susceptible to strikeouts, and they have power pitching. There are a few key areas of overlap then, that the Yankees have to decidedly come out on top of in order to win the series. Let’s start with the bats. The Twins and Yankees both obliterated last year’s team home...

Finale: Royals 5, Twins 4

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Thank you, Ned Yost. 2019 is mercifully over. The Royals lost 103 games. Ned Yost retired. Alex Gordon may have played his last game as a Royal. But today, the Royals put a smile on everyone’s face. They won their 162nd and final game, 5-4, over the Minnesota Twins. They did it for Ned. He went out a winner for the 746th time in his managerial career. The Twins got three in the first inning off two home runs while facing Jorge Lopez, who was among the biggest disappointments for the 2019 Royals. Lopez gave up a tiebreaking run in the fifth on another...
