Twinsights: Tom Brunansky played in quickest Twins game ever in 1982

SEATTLE --Friday’s 2-0 loss to Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners took just two hours, three minutes to complete. That made it the quickest nine-inning game for the Twins since the final day of the 2010 season, when a 2-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Oct. 3 took just 2:01. Marc Rzepczynski beat Nick Blackburn with the Twins headed to the postseason for the sixth time in nine years. The 2010 Twins actually played two games even quicker than that. Roberto Hernandez beat Carl Pavano 2-0 on Sept. 10 at Cleveland in a game that took 1:57, and […] The post Twinsights: Tom Brunansky...

Twinsights: Paul Molitor weighs in on former colleague Bryan Price

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- When Paul Molitor spent the 2004 season as the hitting coach for the Seattle Mariners, the pitching coach was Bryan Price. Yes, the same Bryan Price who made national news Monday when he dropped 77 F-bombs during a session with media covering the Cincinnati Reds team Price now manages. “I didn’t listen to the audio,” Molitor said. “Bryan was an excellent pitching coach. Knowledgeable, very cerebral individual who thinks things through. Calm. Something must have really triggered for him to do that.” Over the course of 5 1/2 minutes, Price ripped into Reds beat...

Postgame Twinsights: The indestructible Kurt Suzuki just keeps ticking

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kurt Suzuki had no business making it through Monday night's game. Not after taking an Oswaldo Arcia foul smash off the top of his right foot while standing maybe 30 feet away in the on-deck circle. "On-deck circles, you’re vulnerable there when the guy swings late," Twins manager Paul Molitor said after this 7-1 loss to Kansas City. "I know it was painful, but I was hoping he’d be able to respond." As always, Suzuki responded. He didn't just take his at-bat in that second inning, he stayed in to catch the rest of the game.

Twinsights: Kennys Vargas, struggling from left side, gets a break

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Twins switch-hitter Kennys Vargas, hitting just .077 (2 for 26) against right-handers, was left out of Monday’s lineup with the Royals starting righty Edinson Volquez. Vargas, hitting .429 (6 for 14) from the right side, will see lefty Jason Vargas on Tuesday. Replacing Vargas at DH for the Twins was switch-hitter Eduardo Escobar, who was just 2 for 11 (.182) from the left side. “A lot of young players, kind of what Kennys is doing too right now, when they’re not producing, they feel like they’re hurting the team and they try that much harder,” Twins […] The...

Twinsights: Paul Molitor not expecting trouble with the Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Twins manager Paul Molitor didn’t feel the need to address his team as it prepared to play the Royals, coming off a wild three-game series with the Oakland A’s. Punctuated by five ejections on Sunday, including manager Ned Yost and two of his coaches, the Royals were bracing for possible suspensions that could be rendered during their three-game series against the Twins. “We have a really good knowledge of this team,” Molitor said. “Everybody knows what’s going on with the Royals. They’ve had, I think, at least three contentious series so far, including a...
