Game like any other, trying so hard just to play,
But one day after another, never sent into the fray.
Knowing you’re on the team, but on the bench incessantly
Makes you feel like a zero, a somber depressant gloomy.

We want to ball,
Swing the bat and hear the call.
But one man at the...

Phillies 3, Twins 0: A whole lot of nothing

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

It was a tight pitching duel until the 9th, when the Phillies struck for 3 runs to seal the win.

Simeon Woods Richardson and Zack Wheeler traded zeroes for the first 6 innings, with Wheeler continuing his shutout through 7 innings. The Twins had some chances to score while Wheeler was out there, but never capitalized on them.

Meanwhile, Woods Richardson pitched a great game, going 6 innings and just allowing 3 hits and a walk while striking out 5.

Passan: Money Issues Continue to Hinder Twins in Trade Talks

We are officially one week away from the MLB trade deadline, on July 30. The Minnesota Twins should be near the top of the list of buyers. They are within sniffing distance of the 1st place Cleveland Guardians and squarely in the AL Wildcard drivers seat.

Twins Trade Deadline Primer, Part 1: Starting Pitchers

With the trade deadline a week away, the Twins currently sit in playoff position and still have a good chance to catch the Cleveland Guardians for the division with an easier schedule and plenty of head-to-head matchups to make up ground. In any normal season, that would make them clear buyers, but Pohlad’s unwillingness to spend money on the team could hurt Derek Falvey’s deadline strategy.

To be fair, for all of Falvey’s strengths as a GM,...

Twins 7, Phillies 2: You Ever Drunk Bailey(s) From a Shoe?

Tonight’s game started with ominous signs in Minneapolis. Thunderstorms delayed the start of the game and an early Philadelphia home run spelled disaster for Bailey Ober against a star-studded lineup. Luckily, the night was young; the game went on and Ober turned in one of his best starts this season.

Injury Won’t Stop Carlos Correa From Performing His Duties as Twins Assistant GM

The Minnesota Twins kind of need a win or two vs the Philadelphia Phillies over the next few days and they will have to do it without their All-Star captain, Carlos Correa, who is currently in a walking boot and on the injured list with plantar fasciitis.

The Twins face the best team in baseball at probably the worst time for them.

The Minnesota Twins are back in action tonight against the team with the best record in baseball, the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies are a stacked team, top to bottom, full of All-Stars and career-best performances on both sides of the ball.

Offensively, they’re lead by all-around superstar Bryce Harper, who made a full-time transition to first base this season, rewarding...

The Past Week on Twinkie Town:

After a busy first-half of the week with the MLB Draft and All-Star Weekend, the Twins were promptly swept by the Brewers in a two-game series, putting them at 54-44. This record now puts them in a tie with the Royals for second place, and now 5.0 games behind the Guardians. The Twins still have the No. 2 wild card spot and are still 3.5 games behind Yankees for the first...

Brewers 8, Twins 7: At Least Nobody Saw That One

The Twins lost, but there was a lot of other stuff going on so I don’t think this one even counts.

The bad news is that the Twins lost. The good news is that there was a lot of other stuff going on, so if a Twins game ends in a loss and there’s no one to see it, did it really happen?

To start, one Joseph Patrick Mauer was being inducted to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown today, which is a highlight for any Twins fan and Minnesotans as a whole....

I’m at Target Field for this one!

First Pitch: 12:05 PM CT TV: Roku via MLB App Radio: TIBN Know Thine Enemy: Brew Crew Ball

I already told my best Twins/Brewers tale earlier this summer. But I do have one more Miller Park story I recalled from the depths of my memory banks:

In June of 2010, my brothers, aunt, and I hit the road towards Milwaukee.

Proof

For the first of two contests, we sat directly behind home plate in Miller’s middle deck and it was one of the best vantage points...
