Bottom Of The Order Makes Its Last Stand

While most Minnesota Twins cynics think it’s unlikely the team will make a move prior to Friday’s non-waiver trade deadline, the players at the bottom of the Twins’ order had its final push in a "bizarro world" type of Twins win Wednesday against the Chicago White Sox. While the heart of the Twins order –…

The End Of Favre Drama? Doubtful.

I’m happy to say that this blog hasn’t acknowledged the Brett Favre saga for quite some time. But with news Tuesday that Favre won’t be coming out of retirement to join the Minnesota Vikings, there’s actually some substance to talk about. It’s really been a long time since the Favre rumors started. The Minnesota Twins…

Royals To Try To Convert Shortstop Into Pitcher

The Kansas City Royals are trying to make lemonade out of lemons a pitcher out of a shortstop. Light-hitting shortstop Tony Pena Jr. will try his luck as a pitcher, according to the Kansas City Star.

Critical Time For Twins Franchise

The Minnesota Twins’ current slump – having lost four in a row and six of their last seven – could be really costly for reasons going beyond this season.

Pro football leagues have tried to compete with the NFL. Most would be considered failures. The league made news earlier this week when former Buffalo Bills quarterback J.P. Losman…

Twins Manage To Bounce Back

I’m still in shock from Monday’s game, but it’s worth noting the Minnesota Twins did pick up a victory Tuesday night in 10 innings against the Oakland A’s. It’s hard not to still dwell on Monday’s loss, though. It was just so crazy. First, the Twins managed to score 13 runs in a game. The…

Wolves Get Richardson … And So Much More

I’ve been away for the last few days at my high school reunion. It’s an odd feeling to see a group of people that you haven’t seen for 10 years, many of which you probably won’t see again for another 10 years. You don’t really get that anywhere else in life. Anyway, much has happened…

Twins Draft Pick Videos

I haven’t really acknowledged the Major League Baseball entry draft that happened last month, largely because it was while I was on vacation. Here’s a couple videos of the Minnesota Twins’ first two picks I found on YouTube: First round pick: RHP Kyle Gibson, Missouri Supplemental pick: LHP Matthew Bashore, Indiana
