  1. Tough Night in New Britain

    [Originally published with a couple pictures at Twins Fan From Afar]

    It was a beautiful evening for outdoor baseball in central Connecticut -- the kind of night where you might come wearing a t-shirt, but had better pack a hooded sweatshirt for when the sun disappears behind the bleachers. The Rock Cats began a homestand tonight, and it was "Anti-Diet Night" at New Britain Stadium. For $12, or $14 if you wanted the good tickets, you could get all-you-can eat hot dogs, hamburgers, ...
  2. Rock Cats Lose 2-1, Streak Halted at 6, and Where is Wimmers??

    [Originally published at Twins Fan From Afar]

    The New Britain Rock Cats lost a close game this afternoon, 2-1, to the Portland Sea Dogs. This was a pitcher's duel, to be sure. Starter Steve Hirschfeld pitched 7 strong innings for the Rock Cats, striking out 7 and walking none, to lower his ERA to 1.06. He surrendered just three hits. Blake Martin struck out 2 in a scoreless 8th. Luis Perdomo blew the save after allowing two walks and a double in the 9th, and then lost the game when, ...

  3. I'm Glad the Twins Aren't Paying for an Ace Right Now, and a Rock Cats Report

    With no Scott Baker in the fold, and with an
    ineffective Francisco Liriano, the future of the Twins'
    rotation is dubious, at best

  5. Rock Cats Push Winning Streak to 5

    [Originally published at Twins Fan From Afar]

    The New Britain Rock Cats defeated the Portland Sea Dogs tonight 10-5. Despite the lopsided score, this game actually took 11 innings to produce a winner. The sides were knotted at 5 runs until the Rock Cats exploded for 5 runs in the 11th inning, and then shut down the Sea Dogs in the home half to secure the victory.



    For all the runs tonight, New Britain only accumulated 9 hits (they also walked 5 times). Big producers ...

  7. New Britain's Winning Streak Continues

    [Originally published at Twins Fan From Afar]

    I think 4 games in a row constitutes a winning streak. If that's not the case, well too bad! The final score today was 3-0 New Britain, and the Rock Cats, in the midst of their first road trip, are now 8-3. The Sunday Rock Cats-Fisher Cats matinee at New Hampshire was essentially a pitcher's duel for much of the game. New Britain starter Lucas French tossed 7 scoreless innings (92 pitches) for the Rock Cats, allowing only 2 hits, and walking

  12. Silver Lining on the Scott Baker News

    Will this man-child ever throw for the Twins again?
    There's no good news report today, as it was just announced that our best righty, Scott Baker, will miss the entire season ...
  13. Scott Baker Press Conference Coming Up

    This doesn't sound good. I'll hope for the best, but it's tough to imagine a press conference with Terry Ryan sitting next to Baker, and Baker saying "I'm 100% ready for action!"
