MIN 4, MIL 2: The Randy and Rosie Show

Randy Dobnak has been so good in 2020, he gave up one run over five innings tonight and his ERA actually went up. Eddie Rosario provided all the offense, hitting a grand slam in the third inning, as the Twins beat the Brewers 4-2.

Ranking the Twins' Current Injury Concerns

For the first time this season, Minnesota is reeling and trying to figure out someway to stop their recent losing streak. One reason for their mounting loses could be the plethora of injuries the team has already been facing. There are five players currently on the injured list, so which injuries are most concerning to the team’s success this season?

Why Harder Might Not Mean Better for José Berríos

The Twins’ ace hasn’t been one through the first quarter of this 60-game season, and that’s hurt within and between his starts. His hard stuff, in particular, is failing him.

Twins Notebook 8/10: Looking to Brew Up Another W

The Minnesota Twins couldn’t get out of Kansas City fast enough. After a strong start to the season, they’ve now lost four straight and are fresh off a sweep by the Royals. Moving on to Milwaukee, the Brewers are hovering around .500 and are expected to be in the thick of the NL Central race when the dust settles.

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.

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.

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.
