Healthy Perkins, impressive Fien leading strong Twins bullpen

A healthy Glen Perkins is a dominant Glen Perkins. The two time All-Star closer struggled in the second half of last season, posting a 4.84 ERA after the break before shutting himself down in mid-September with a forearm injury. Now healthy, Perkins is a perfect five-for-five in save appearances and is looking better than ever.  He has struck out eight batters while surrendering...

A Hunter’s Quest For Fire, and the Top 100 Hitters, Week 4

Never once did I think I would be writing about a creeper older than I am, and yet here I am, talking about Torii Hunter. Being the ageless wonder (or is it the wonder of agelessness, I'm not really sure), he still suits up every day and goes out and plays. I was racking my brain for some kind of analogy for the creeper and I found my inspiration from the Paleolithic 80's flick Quest...

Twins Go Outside of AL Central Looking for Consistency

The Minnesota Twins had an interesting schedule to start the 2015 season when they opened with 15 straight games against fellow AL Central opponents, allowing them to really gauge where they stand. Despite this, not much was learned as the team has struggled to stay consistent. The Twins have played some bad baseball over the first few weeks of the 2015 season and they’ve also...

A Sample Size Of What The Twins Might Be in 2015

Photo Credit: Keith Allison They say you can get an accurate read on well a team is after 30 games. Let’s cut that in half and let the judging begin after 15 on the Minnesota Twins. First we look at just straight forward results. All the Twins games have been against division foes. The AL Central was considered the toughest division in baseball by many entering the 2015 season...

Super Smart Torii Hunter Tried to Steal Home With the Bases Loaded and Two Out

Torii Hunter, known for having awesome opinions, tried to turn back the clock Wednesday night, and attempted a straight steal of home on the Royals’ Jeremy Guthrie. Now, Hunter is a 39-year-old veteran, so obviously if there’s a savvy player out there who knows when to take a calculated risk, it’s him, right? NOPE! As you can see in the GIF below, Hunter was thrown out rather...

Minnesota Twins: Time for a change in center field

Coming into the season, a big question facing the Minnesota Twins was who is going to start in center field? New manager Paul Molitor decided on Jordan Schafer to take the starting spot and Shane Robinson to get playing time as well. That left Aaron Hicks and Eddie Rosario to be sent down to AAA to play for the Rochester Red Wings. In the Twins’ 14 games thus far, Schafer has started...

May Has His Day With Tribe; Twins 7, Indians 2

Did the Tribe Win Last Night? No! The Twins made the most of a three-run second inning, putting T.J. House in a major hole and Torii Hunter put the exclamation mark on a 7-2 victory with a three-run homer in the sixth inning, sending the Tribe to a series loss. Minnesota took control of the game early and used it to coast to an easy victory. The Tribe’s poor defense again reared...

Minnesota Twins: No need to panic over Hughes’ slow start

It may not be the results you want, but at least you know what you are going to get out of Phil Hughes in April.

The starting pitcher was charged with all four runs, as he also gave up his fourth home run of the year. In now 31 career starts...

Twins players rocking business casual look for scoreboard photos (pics)

Baseball players traditionally are adorned in their team’s uniform for the photographs displayed on in-arena scoreboards during their at-bats. The Minnesota Twins flipped that tradition on its head by having the ballplayers rock a look that is much more befitting a business casual style spotted in virtually every office in the country. Evidence of the...Read More The post Twins...

Twins' Dozier changes music to gain more 'street cred'

Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier received enough grief from his friends back home that he has decided to go away from the country music he loves for his walk-up music, instead opting to completely reverse course and go with an entirely kind of jam. Last season, Dozier used Justin Moore’s “Small Town USA” for...Read More The post Twins’ Brian Dozier changes walk...

Twins rookie wears stirrups so legally blind mom can see him

  Minnesota Twins rookie J.R. Graham might look like he’s paying homage to baseball’s past, but there’s a lot more to it than that.   Graham was able to crack the Twins’ opening day roster, and he probably pleased some baseball purists when he was seen wearing stirrups. However, Graham’s throwback look actually is a way to help his mother find him on the field...

Baseball Player Wears Specific Socks So Blind Mom Can See Him

Grab your tissues folks, it’s about to be one of “those” stories. According to CBS Sports, Minnesota Twins rookie pitcher J.R. Graham stood out from the rest of the team when he wore stirrup socks, while other members of the team went with traditional garb. This wasn’t because he was rebelling against the dress code, or even has superstitions. Graham’s mother is legally...

WATCH: Kevin Garnett throws out first pitch at Twins game

If Kevin Garnett is looking for something to do when his basketball career ends, he might have a future in baseball. The former Boston Celtics big man returned to the Timberwolves at this season’s NBA trade deadline, and his homecoming in Minnesota has been a special one.

Sunday Notes: Fien’s Twitchy Feeling, Baldelli’s New Gig, Pollock the Scout, more

Casey Fien has found his niche. Primarily fastball-curveball when he broke in with the Tigers, in 2009, the Twins reliever has since added a cutter and learned how to pitch. As he told me a few weeks ago, “Now I know what I can get away with and what I can’t.” Last summer, Fien didn’t […]

Torii Hunter rips umpire Joe West over questionable call

The Major League Baseball season is just a couple of days old, and we’ve already got our first tiff involving Joe West. The longtime umpire has seen his share of confrontation over the years, and he’s off to a great start in 2015. First, there was his too-cool-for-school ejection of A.J. Pierzynski in spring training. Now, on Opening Day, West found himself in the middle of...

The Twins need Mike Pelfrey to step up

Mike Pelfrey, welcome to the Minnesota Twins starting rotation…again. On Friday, Major League Baseball handed Twins’ starter Ervin Santana an 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs, thus opening a spot in the rotation for Pelfrey. While losing a strong No. 2 starter in Santana is a pretty big punch-to-the-gut for a team right on the brink of turning the corner...

Twins Roster Preview - Hitter guys

With the depressing but not terribly surprising news that the Twins sent all the interesting young people back down to the minors and kept a bunch of lame-o veterans on the big league roster, I suppose it's time to turn my thoughts to baseball.  Also, there's a 75% chance I hate the college basketball national champion (actually probably more like 98%) so I'm going to ignore that...
