Small sample sizes are back to tell you why Nick Gordon is the best utility man to ever exist.

June Recap

Largely due to a few late-game bullpen collapses, the Twins had their first losing month of the season. At 13-15, there were some promising moments (winning series against the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays) and some painful ones (getting swept by the Tigers to start the month, Emilio Pagán against the Cleveland Guardians). They lost...

3 Up, 3 Down: Midseason Musings

Reasons for optimism vs. harbingers of doom

After Jorge Polanco & Jose Miranda tag-teamed the walk-off win over the Orioles this past Saturday, the Twins found themselves halfway home on the 2022 season. With a 45-36 record, they have been just good/exciting enough to get fans’ hopes up, while always just inconsistent/maddening enough to wonder if it will all matter in early fall.

Here are three midseason musings from each camp....

The Twins Made A Previously Unseen Play In MLB History

The Minnesota Twins made a little history on Monday night against the Chicago White Sox, when the latter decided that it would not be necessary to tag up on a flyout.

Byron Buxton and His Fragile Past

A look back at Byron’s injuries, will they continue?

As we wrap our heads around the atrocity that was the final two games of that Twins vs. Guardians series, and the more encouraging series win against Baltimore, we mustn’t forget a very important piece of history during that series. Something many of us have been waiting for, for years. No one more so than the man who did it. Byron Buxton, for the first time in his career, has hit 20 home runs...

Twins 6, White Sox 3 (10 innings): The offense finally comes through

Luis Arraez can hit a little bit. | Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

A fun Fourth of July finish

For nine innings, the script of this game seemed all too familiar.

It was low scoring like so many have been this season. There was a short, yet effective start by a Twins starting pitcher. And the Twins bullpen allowed the opposing team to tie the game.

But then, the 10th inning happened.

In the first two innings of the game, the Twins had five baserunners. None of them scored, however, and the...

Thinking About Bullpen Blowup Risk

What’s the probability a Twins reliever will wreck a game? Should the starters work deeper instead?

You don’t need me to tell you that the Twins’ bullpen failures have been an “energetic” topic of discussion in recent weeks. Much internet ink has been spilled on this site, and many others, detailing the team’s bullpen woes and suggesting ideas for how to fix them.

Meltdown after meltdown after meltdown. What a mess.

Orioles 3, Twins 1: No walkoff magic today

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

The Twins were unable to get the big hits that defined the first two games of this series, and have to settle for a series win against Baltimore.

The first 4 innings of this game went by without a run on the board, and early on, Tyler Wells and Devin Smeltzer were matching each other with strong starts. Smeltzer was aided by some tremendous outfield defense, with Gilberto Celestino launching a dart from center field to nab Anthony Santander at the...
