The Twins’ first 3-game losing streak of the season is here, folks. And it was ugly.

It’s gut check time, Minnesota. And Shannon Stewart is not coming through that door. The Twins’ Mitch Garver scored the go-ahead run in the fifth inning against the New York Mets on Wednesday, only to see that 3-2 lead turn into a complete nightmare. Reliever Trevor May served up a three-run home run, terrible fielding... Continue Reading »

Twins denied sweep, but still get series win over Tribe

The Twins rallied to tie Sunday’s game at 3-3, but after reliever, Trevor May, served up a solo shot in the bottom of the seventh inning, the fight and game were lost, 4-3.

The first losing streak of the season is here

The Twins have their first losing streak of the season after they dropped the first two of four games with the Toronto Blue Jays. Why do the Twins keep scheduling AL East teams?

Another game, another Twins win over the Royals

The 2019 season already feels so different. The Twins suffered 15 walk-off losses last season, but after two wins over the Kansas City Royals, the team has shown plenty of resiliency. They took the lead in both games, then fell behind, then rallied for two wins. Meanwhile, the bullpen did not disappoint, nailing down both... Continue Reading »

Twins’ ‘opener’ produces mixed results in loss to Houston

Reliever Trevor May got the ball on Tuesday and he quickly coughed up four runs on five hits after facing eight batters. His job was done and it appeared the Twins were fast on their way to another disastrous “opener,” similar to the 18-4 beatdown they suffered at the hands of the Texas Rangers on...

‘Opener’ strategy rolls on for Twins

The Twins aren’t done exploring whether the bullpen can actually help a starting pitcher pitch deeper (more effectively?) into games after it was announced that reliever Trevor May will get the ball for Tuesday’s game at Houston. And once May has worked his way through the top and middle of the order, starting pitcher Kohl... Continue Reading »

Well, there’s always next year Twins fans

The 2018 season ended Wednesday for the Twins after they went quietly in a 2-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians. The Tribe’s Carlos Carrasco dominated Twins hitters and the Indians took two out of three games to win the series. The season, of course, isn’t over for the Twins, but for all intents and purposes...

Hang on, these Twins aren’t done just yet

A three-game sweep of the Twins at the hands of the Kansas City Royals had me predicting that the season was just about over, especially if they struggled at all on their current road trip. But that has not happened. Instead, the Twins crossed the border and crushed the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, then... Continue Reading »

Ho-hum: Twins beat Angels

The Twins beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 7-5 on Sunday, which is all fine and well as far as winning goes. The problem is that the Twins lost the first two games in the series, so they needed to win to avoid being swept. The Twins took three of four games from the... Continue Reading »

Hi, I’m Rolf Boone, Twins fan.

I became a fan of the Minnesota Twins after a friendly wager in the early 1980s. I survived Ron Davis, the meltdown in Cleveland, Phil Bradley at the Kingdome and then marveled at a rising generation of stars and two World Series wins in 1987 and 1991. Brad Radke made the 1990s bearable, while Kirby Puckett’s eye injury, exit from the game and eventual death made it almost too much to bear. The new century ushered in more talent — Joe Mauer, Johan Santana, Joe Nathan, Torii Hunter, Justin Morneau — and consecutive seasons of playoff baseball, followed by consecutive seasons of losing baseball. A winning season returned in 2015. So here we are. Go Twins.
