Sponsored by Ticket King It hasn't been that long since Twins fans touted the Twins/White Sox rivalry as one of baseball?s best. No, it was never in the same category as Yankees/Red Sox, but there was a most definitely a rivalry. In fact, it got ugly at times. Consider from 2001 through 2010, the White Sox or Twins won the AL Central title nine times. They finished in first and second in the divis

A fan/writer in the stands at Veteran?s Memorial Stadium in Cedar Rapids was watching a group of six or seven Kernels players working in the batting cage on bunting for hits.

via Twins Daily July 21, 2014 at 11:05 AM

Does MLB offer their teams refunds for entire series? Can an MLB team get a "do over" on the first series out of a break?

via Twins Daily July 20, 2014 at 11:05 AM

The Twins lost on Saturday to David Price and the Rays by a score of 5-1. The positive for the Twins was that they were able to turn five double plays in the game. In other words, it could have been worse. They will try today to avoid the sweep. Trevor May returned to the mound for the Red Wings after missing almost a month. JO Berrios made his second start for New Britain and was tremendous. A

The Twins lost their first game after the All-Star game to the Tampa Bay Rays. On Saturday, Phil Hughes will take on David Price in the second game of the series.

Deal or No Deal: Considering Contract Extensions
via Twins Daily July 18, 2014 at 11:05 AM

As the Twins put the All-Star Game behind them and gear up for the final 68 games on the schedule, they face much uncertainty. They're only six games below .500 -- a marked improvement from recent years -- and although they trail the Tigers by 10.5 games in the Central, they are within seven games of a wild-card spot. While it's nice to be in a spot where contention is a feasible scenario, w
