Another losing season for Twins, but some glimpses of hope

MINNEAPOLIS -- With four more losses, the Minnesota Twins will be losers of 90 games for the fourth straight season. It's been a fall from grace for a team that won the American League Central division six times in a nine-year span. Yet while 2014 has been another lost season in the Twin Cities, this year's 90-plus losses have a different feel than what took place from 2011...

Sometimes, there’s nobody to blame

The abrupt end to the Twins successful decade came in 2011. In the offseason between 2010 and 2011, they had one incredible misstep, trading JJ Hardy and replacing him with Tsuyoshi Nishioka. As bad as this was, it wasn’t the only reason the Twins started their slide to irrelevance. Justin Morneau, Joe Mauer, Denard Span, Scott Baker and Nishioka (who never had a chance to get...

Doubleheader unkind to Twins again

Glen Perkins was on the mound for the first time since Sept. 4 and the Minnesota Twins were looking for some relief after playing doubleheaders in two of the past three days. Instead, Minnesota left with another deflating sweep. Perkins was faced with the heart of the Chicago White Sox order, which came through again as Chicago swept a doubleheader Saturday with a 7-6 win in the...

How Friday’s rainout could cost Phil Hughes $500,000

Friday’s rainout at U.S. Cellular Field gave the Twins a chance to push back left-hander Tommy Milone’s scheduled start at least two days as he recovers from a sore neck in addition to a tired pitching shoulder. Milone, who had been scheduled to work Saturday, will now start Monday at the earliest, at home against Detroit. That will give him nearly two full weeks between starts...

The Twins can take some good things away from season

Brian Dozier – Photo Credit – Keith Allison Another year, and yet another fifth place finish in the AL Central for the Minnesota Twins. The once proud franchise is heading towards their third last-place finish in the past four years and it is a far cry from the team that made the postseason six times during a nine-year span from 2002-10′. The problem is, they have not been...

End of season post-mortem: Minnesota Twins

The Twins are probably going to end 2014 with their best record since 2010, but given that they’re coming off three-straight 96-loss seasons, that’s not exactly a consolation. This once proud franchise has fallen onto rough times, and their 2014 season could be their most disappointing year considering the additions the club made in the offseason. Preseason Prediction: The...

With a traditional doubleheader taking place Thursday in Cleveland, the Minnesota Twins were hoping that starting pitcher Kyle Gibson could go deep in the first game of the day. Three innings into the opener, it was clear that wasn't happening. Gibson had one of his roughest outings of the season Thursday at Progressive Field, allowing seven runs on seven hits in just three innings...

An idea that should have been brought up sooner

Otherwise move Mauer off first and commit to Pinto and Vargas at first and DH. That is also acceptable. — Brandon Warne (@Brandon_Warne) September 10, 2014 I am linking to Brandon Warne’s tweet here to acknowledge the fact that I didn’t come up with this idea either. I think it’s tremendous though, and fully endorse it. The Twins should probably begin their turn around sooner...

Sunday Notes: Nathan & Perkins, McHugh, Norris Debut, Rowdy Tellez, Giants’ Arroyo

Joe Nathan and Glen Perkins agree that closers could earn more multiple-inning saves and throw more overall innings. But they don’t necessarily feel they should, and they certainly don’t see it happening. Once upon a time, it wasn’t all that uncommon for a team’s top bullpen arm to log a lot of action. Notable examples […]

A.J. Achter: An Underdog in the Twin Cities

A.J. Achter made it. He wasn’t supposed to make it. The 26-year-old right-hander lasted until the 46th round of the 2010 draft and was offered bupkis for a signing bonus. Now he’s stepping onto the big stage. The Minnesota Twins called up Achter from Triple-A Rochester when the calender flipped on Sunday night. Achter enrolled […]
