Series preview: Twins host Indians in battle for AL Central lead
via Twinkie Town June 16, 2017 at 12:02 PM

This series could be the difference in the battle for the division. This could be the most important series the Twins play this year. With a current two game lead over the Indians in the AL Central, this series could either blow the division open, see the Twins fall behind, or something in between. We all know how bad the home record has been, and so far in 2017, the Twins are 2-4 against Cl

Twins stuff, AL Central stuff, baseball stuff, nonsense Hey, it’s Stu, from Internet. Every two years, the fam and I head out to the Wisconsin Dells for my youngest daughter’s final dance competition of the year. It’s never not a revelation for me, and America. You really haven't lived until you've seen a couple yell "DRINK IT YOU PUSSY" at each other at a swim-up bar in the Wisconsin Dell

via Twinkie Town June 15, 2017 at 03:56 PM

Jose Berrios gem and Twins long bombs rule the day. The Twins really turned tables this time and got off to a 2-run lead in the 1st when Eduardo Escobar (He’s so hot right now) hit a homer to deep left with Brian Dozier on third. Chris Gimenez hit a 3-run blast to left center field to make it 5-0 Twins. The Twins batted around in the 1st. Leading off the 2nd, Dozier got hit by a Ariel Mira

Minnesota Twins crushed the 2017 MLB draft
via Twinkie Town June 15, 2017 at 11:44 AM

In their first MLB draft as front office leaders, Derek Falvey and Thad Levine acquired an impressive amount of talent. After three days and 40 rounds, the 2017 MLB Draft has come and gone, and the dust has settled (a bit). In baseball terms—i.e. the actual value that the players we drafted have in the major leagues—we will not be able to properly judge this draft until 2027 or so. In terms

And stuff about fish and sick people too We’re Having a Buyer Sale? USA Today asks whether the Twins will be sellers or buyers this year.

Settle down about the Twins draft
via Twinkie Town June 14, 2017 at 09:38 AM

Twins 20, Mariners 7: Single stampede and Rosario rampage leads to rout
via Twinkie Town June 13, 2017 at 11:02 PM

And other alliterative devices that mean “Holy crap lots of runs woo.” Okay let’s get the bad news out of the way first. Kyle Gibson started the game and he pitched like poop. Smelly gross poop. He have up six runs in six innings on 12 hits. Even with no real sterling replacements in mind, he has to be running out of chances. Didn’t matter though! Gibson could have pitched like double poop a

via Twinkie Town June 13, 2017 at 12:26 PM

Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic in the search of fresh arms. After two consecutive bullpen implosions, the Minnesota Twins needed to do something. They did... something, here I suppose. Ryan Pressly has been recalled from Triple-A Rochester, where he pitched four scoreless innings over three appearances. Hopefully that means he has been successful at working on whatever he was as
