    Escobar and Fuld on 1st and 2nd. Speed on the bases, bottom of the ninth. When is the last time the Twins pulled off a double steal?

    Yep. Easy score on a conventional slide. Catcher is not standing in the base line. He's got one foot at/near the plate and is standing off to the side. The runner simply wanted to put a hit on the...

    Tom Brunansky Job Security?

    The Twins just set a single season record for strikeouts with 1,127, eclipsing the record of 1,121 set by the woeful 1997 club. The Twins are 25th in MLB in runs scored and 26th in BA. They are on a...

    Went to the full list at the link provided and was agreeing with almost everything until I got to Best Manager. #1 Jim Leyland? and Joe Maddon of the Rays isn't even on the list. This is so wrong.

    A starter that throws 92 mph is nothing to be proud of. I would call it a copper lining.

    He had a good sinker in his first couple of starts.

    That's all I've got for positives.

    Honestly, I don't see what all the hullabaloo is about. He throws 92 mph (mostly) and sometimes hits...

    That is quite a disparity. If you dig a little deeper he is failing within the AL Central.

    At Cleveland he's .200 (4 for 20)
    At Kansas City he's .250 (6 for...

    Can't get your link to work in either Firefox or IE10.
