Twins’ bats wake up as Liriano falls asleep at the wheel

Tuesday night the Twins’ bats started showing signs of life, with Danny Valencia hitting a game-winning single with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. Wednesday the bats looked like they came to play again, there was only one problem, […]

With the Royals in town, could the Twins’ bats come to life?

The Twins and Royals kick off an abbreviated series tomorrow, with only two games between the clubs, before they hit the road again. Brian Duensing will take the hill facing southpaw Jeff Francis. Minnesota really needs a good outing from Duensing. […]

Cuddyer to start at second for the Twins

This week has seen a few lineup shuffles for the Twins, and Sunday has brought another one. Michael Cuddyer is in the starting lineup playing second base, where he started one game last season, and has started 47 times in […]

Nishioka out 4-6 weeks

Can this Twins team win in New York?

The Twins are kicking off a four-game set in New York tonight so I had to ask, is this the year the Twins finally get some wins at Yankee Stadium? Ron Gardenhire has a record of 4-25 managing regular season […]

Not the best start

Well, the first weekend of baseball is over and right now I am glad the Twins are getting out of Canada. The Twins didn’t exactly get off to a hot start in 2011, dropping the first two games of a […]
