MIN 5, KC 4: Bats Rally, Bullpen Protects 1-Run Lead

With this lineup, you can never count out the Twins. They fell behind 4-1 tonight, but rallied back to tie the game in the fifth and took the lead in the sixth.

MIN 2, KC 0: Gibson Shines on Night Honoring Mauer, Prince

It was a special night for Joe Mauer and for the memory of Prince, as both Minnesota legends were honored before a sellout crowd at Target Field. But it sure was also a very special night for Kyle Gibson, as he was dealing, and hopefully regained some momentum in the season.

Here's Why You Don't Need to Freak Out Over the Twins Trading Prospects

Now that Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel have finally signed, the Twins will have to trade away prospects if they want to improve the pitching staff. It’s going to be OK, because prospect hoarding isn’t really allowed anyway. If the Twins don’t thin out the herd a bit, they may lose valuable pieces and get nothing in return.

All Mauer All The Time (and Prince)

The Twins are about an hour away from starting a three-game intradivision series with the Kansas City Royals. However, thanks to a huge lead in the division, let's be honest, this weekend is about Joe Mauer. And a bit about Prince.

MIN 10, SEA 5: Another Double-Digit Scoring Effort, Another Bullpen Scare

The Twins reached 10 runs yet again on Thursday afternoon, and they ended up needing nearly every one of them. Despite holding a 10-1 lead entering the eighth inning, things ended up getting much too interesting, though the Twins still managed to win 10-5.

Potential Twins Bullpen Target: Greg Holland, RHP, Diamondbacks

Continuing down the path of searching out relief help for the Minnesota Twins, a host of closers and high-leverage arms can all be explored. The latest target is a guy who once tormented the hometown nine from the opposing bullpen. No longer the fireballer from the Kansas City Royals pen, he's still a serviceable arm that's carved out a pretty solid career.
