Save The "M!"

http://www.twinsandlosses.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/30c5ebfa57730257176efea5450657cd.jpg  Originally posted on www.twinsandlosses.com @TwinsAndLosses   No, this isn’t a post about the recently demolished Metrodome (R.I.P. and screw you, Zygi), this is a post about something near and dear to my heart: The Twins’ “M” logo. I’m a huge fan of the “M” logo the Twins have used since 1987. It seems that every year past 2010, the Twins have made small steps in moving closer and closer to the fa

Vargas: Kennys Keep It Up?

[Originally posted on twinsandlosses.com]   It seems a little inappropriate to call Kennys Vargas “Little Papi”. According to Baseball Reference he is an inch taller (6’ 5”) and weights thirty-five pounds more (275) than Mr. Ortiz. One can assume that this comparison has more to do with their skills with a bat than their impressive physical stature. They may not be the fastest nor the best when it comes to flashing the leather but they do both possess an important skill, one that Jeremy Clarkson

New Hopes

"Joe Mauer. Now that's a name I've not heard in a long time..."   Joe Mauer might be the crazy, old wizard of Minnesota Twins lore at some point, but the former MVP has shown that he still has some magic left. The Minnesota Twins beat the Houston Astros 4-2 last night. Mauer returned to the line-up after missing six weeks, and went 2-4 with a walk and an RBI. Not a bad return for the 3 time Batting Champion. After the game he stated that he, "...expects his oblique soreness to continue for the r

Twins And Losses Strike Back: Trade Deadline Snaps Writing Hiatus

(Originally posted on www.twinsandlosses.com) The Twins know when to Fuld them. They know when to walk away, know when to run. The Twins made moves after they convinced themselves that they were much better off than they actually were. Colabello was red hot to start the season. Gibson was putting up impressive stats for his first month. And Joe Mauer was non-existent. Well Bello cooled off, Gibson isn't the fireballer we thought, and Mauer is still M.I.A. That's not to say the Twins don't have s

The Only Cup I Need is a Coffee Cup

While the rest of America is struggling to find a seat on the World Cup bandwagon and spouting off regurgitated soccer stats, we here at Twins And Losses have been MIA. Plain and simple, we’ve been busy with life, and we suck! So here’s a photo that hopefully brings a smile to your faces: http://www.twinsandlosses.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/1959348_10104725105941750_3375576155633379102_n.jpg Some quick notes: - Kevin Correia’s monthly ERA total has gone down drastically each month.

The Igniter vs. Big Papi

(originally posted on www.twinsandlosses.com) Awhile ago there was a debate surrounding two prominent names near and dear to every heart that beats within Twins Territory that was trying to work out which is/was the better player. A comparison of skill not only with the bat and glove but also the passion in which they play(ed) and their leadership qualities. I’m talking about Mark Rosen’s son vs. The Cannonball. Kid Sideburns vs. Pucky Smiles. Mauer vs. Puckett. But I ask you fellow fans, are we

An Unforeseen Frown For Bean Town

(Originally posted on www.twinsandlosses.com)   Something tells me that the atmosphere surrounding the Boston sports market is a little less than chipper at the moment. The Celtics missed the playoffs for the first time since the ’07-’08 season, the Bruins lost game seven of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals to their bitter rival Montreal on home ice and the Cannons are off to a 1-2 start (hey, professional lacrosse is big over there). Oh yeah, and the defending World Series champion Red Sox ar

Logan, Danny and Samuel's Debut-no

(Originally posted on twinsandlosses.com)   As the saying goes: “April showers bring May flowers.”   They also bring two rainouts at Target Field in a matter of three days. Following the rain spell the Twins frolicked their merry way to four straight losses in ways that made you want to do a rain dance in your living room. Fun stats include: a team RISP ratio of 7-40 (17.5%), a team strikeout rate of 27% and Jared Burton generously giving a 12th inning homerun to Drew Butera. April showers shou

Speedboat To a C-Note?...

http://www.twinsandlosses.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/sb2cn.jpg   (Originally posted on twinsandlosses.com)   #IfTheTwinsWereWWE (CC: Phil Mackey, Dana Wessel), Joe Mauer would be "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels. Joe has had more back and knee problems than Kurt Angle, Hulk Hogan, and The Undertaker combined. **     Alas, this post is not about Joe, nor is it an article where I tear my shirt ala Hulk Hogan when I finish writing. No, this post is to compare the 2013 Twins versus the 2014 T
