Week in Review: Hurting & Humbled

After racing to a 10-2 start, the Minnesota Twins hit a speed bump against what should've been an exploitable soft spot in the schedule. A six-game winning streak gave way to a four-game losing streak as the team is suddenly overcome by sleepy and punchless performances.

Jose Berrios, Velocity and Where Do We Go From Here

During the third inning of his Opening Day start, Jose Berrios reared back on a 3-2 pitch to Chicago’s Eloy Jimenez and fired a two-seam fastball down in the zone which Jimenez promptly spoiled, sending a foul ball back to the screen.

The score chyron flashed the velocity at the upper left-handed coroner of the broadcast: 97 MPH.

It was a very exciting development for the Twins pitcher.

The Starting Pitcher Trade Market at a Glance

The depth of the Minnesota Twins starting rotation has been tested early on. Jake Odorizzi finally made his first start on Saturday, Rich Hill and Homer Bailey each made one start before landing on the IL, and Michael Pineda is still serving his suspension. Hopefully, as they start to return, that will sure the Twins rotation back up, but if injury issues persist, the Twins may need to turn to the trade market to improve the starting rotation.

KCR 4, MIN 2: Bad Day for Berríos, Bats

The downward trend continued for the Twins Sunday in Kansas City, as the Royals scored four runs off José Berríos and the Minnesota lineup left seven men on base. The Twins have now lost four straight games, all of them at the hands of a couple of the worst teams in baseball.

Twins Notebook 8/9: The Sky is Falling!

The Twins have lost three in a row and are on the verge of being swept by the Royals. They will need their ace, Jose Berrios, to step up big time today. Let's hope the team can pick it up quickly for a win today.

KCR 9, MIN 6: Brief 2020 Debut for Odorizzi; Royals Bust It Open Against Bullpen

Jake Odorizzi lasted just three innings in his 2020 season debut. After he exited the game the Royals jumped all over the bullpen, scoring six runs in the fourth inning. The Twins’ lineup scored more than five runs for just the second time in the past 11 games, but the damage had already been done.

In Appreciation of Marwin

Marwin González had a career year in 2017 which we later found out may have been aided by… other variables. He’s struggled to replicate that performance ever since, and has become known for being a slow starter. 2020 however offers some encouraging signs in the early going.

Some fans have been fortunate enough to enjoy this multiple times, some have never experienced this in their lives and others have experienced it once but haven’t gotten to experience it again in nearly three decades or more.

Twins Notebook 8/8: The Return of Odorizzi

After a close loss on Friday, the Twins will be looking to rebound against Kansas City and get back on track before a real losing streak gets established. Fortunately, they’ll be getting a shot in the arm in the form of a 2019 All-Star making his 2020 debut.

Twins Bats Have Struggled Early

When the 2020 season started, the one thing we knew with certainty about the Minnesota Twins is that their offense would be fantastic. Just 14 games into the 60-game season, the offense has not looked great, but has it been as bad as we think?
