TWINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Minnesota Twins fall to David Price in his Toronto debut

David Price took the mound this afternoon for the first time in a Toronto Blue Jays uniform, and it unfortunately came against the Minnesota Twins. Some players have trouble adjusting to their new team after being traded, but that certainly was not an issue for Price in his Toronto debut. He has already faced the Twins twice this year, allowing only two runs in 16 innings and earning...

Target Field loving meaningful August baseball

The sputtering Minnesota Twins offense was in desperate need of a spark after getting one-hit by Taijuan Walker on Friday. After scoring just one run in the first eight innings Saturday, that spark finally came; but not without help from Seattle Mariners’ manager Lloyd McClendon. McClendon made the questionable decision to intentionally walk Eddie Rosario, who represented the game’s...

Hughes on verge of rare turnaround

Phil Hughes can do something Thursday night that hasn't been done in 10 years. Hughes was 0-4 in April, but has a chance to win his 10th game when the Minnesota Twins host the Seattle Mariners. No pitcher has been 0-4 (or worse) and then reached 10 wins by the end of July since Barry Zito did it in 2005 with the Oakland A's. Zito was also 0-4 in April that season and just happened...

Mauer continuing career trend of heating up in July

Is it the official start of summer? An appreciation of fireworks? Smelling hot dogs, hamburgers and brats on the grill? Whatever it is, Joe Mauer certainly has liked the month of July over his career and that trend has continued in 2015. With two days left in the month, Mauer is batting .314. This should really come as no surprise as Mauer has hit over .300 in July since 2007. In...

The One Glairing Issue with Kyle Gibson

The Minnesota Twins took Kyle Gibson in the first round of the 2009 Draft and he quickly became one of the better pitching prospects in baseball. Now through 61 career starts in just his second full Major League season, the 27-year old hurler is 23-24 with a 4.42 ERA. He’s gotten noticeably better each year.

Series Preview: Angels vs. Twins vs. Annoyed

I’m already annoyed at this series. I’m annoyed that the Twins are good and I honestly have no idea how they are good. No team that has prominently featured Mike Pelfrey, Tommy Milone and Ricky Nolasco in their rotaiton should be any good. I’m annoyed that Torii Hunter is on the Twins, which is going to lead to a whole new round of Angels fans on Twitter bemoaning the Halos...

Minnesota Twins’ Paul Molitor is the first half’s frontrunner for manager of the year

It’ll never work out. Those four words rolled off the tongues of critics following the Minnesota Twins’ hiring of Paul Molitor as manager in November 2014. Why would it? Fans from the Twin Cities had a front row seat as they watched an annual playoff contender disintegrate into the doormat of the American League.
