Vazquez has terrible game, Twins lose 3-2 in extras to M’s

Twins catcher Christian Vazquez wasn’t entirely at fault for the club’s 3-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Friday, but he certainly played a large role in it due to a number of fielding goofs. He couldn’t field a ball cleanly from the outfield that allowed a run to score (and if he had the... Continue Reading »

Twins blast Bucs with 7-run 10th, halt losing streak

The losing streak is over and now a new streak, the winning kind, is potentially at hand because the Twins head home to play three games against the lowly Colorado Rockies, followed by four more versus the somewhat improved Oakland A’s.

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.
