• Twins vs Indians, 07-27-2012, 7:10pm

    The Twins received an off-day and a return trip to Target Field after a humiliating three-game series where Minnesota was outscored 26-10. The Twins will try to put that road trip behind them and get back on track against the Indians and Josh Tomlin. This is the last full series before the trade deadline so keep an eye on the Twins possible trade chips... Let's hope they all string together a good series.

    On the good news front, the Star-Tribune has reported that it's likely Trevor Plouffe will return to action today after suffered a bruised thumb on the road trip. After the showing in Chicago, his bat will be a welcome addition in the Minnesota lineup.

    What do you expect from the Twins over the weekend? How will they fare against the Indians in Target Field? Join the Twins Daily discussion below and tell us about it!

      I would think Diamond is one of the ones who Gardenhire would let stretch out to 110-115. After 110 I would pull him and don't worry about it. His left arm in the next couple years is potentially more valuable than any special accomplishment. And by the time it gets to that decision, it should only be using one bullpen arm, maybe two and that isn't the worst thing with yesterday's off day.

      Listening to Dick, Bert, Coomer and friends it's hard to understand how this team with all these great players can be in last place.

      And in typical twins fashion, they will lose the next two and waste all their runs tonight....can they put up 20 though?

      That's kind of turning into an understatement at this point.

      When it comes to the Twins this year, not much is an understatement

      This is one of the most effective outings I have seen a Twins starting pitcher make in a long time.
