Another good night for Berrios: 7IP 3H 1ER 4K 1BB
Yesterday, 08:37 PM
In more cheerful news, the Berrios wagon train rolls on. 7IP 3H 1ER
I'd like to see Polanco get another taste in September, maybe Rosario if he hits for the next 2 months. I also expect Hicks to remain in the doghouse in September.
What are the chances of getting his brother to wear a "Bull Dozier" t-shirt while pitching to him?
Haven't heard. My guess would be optioning Thielbar
Outstanding night again for Berrios: 7 IP 1H 0 ER 9K 2BB
Kid is dealing at the moment

And he's done all that with a BABIP 80-90 pts lower than Carpenter and Cano

I thought maybe Knoblauch had come close, but now I see he never hit more than 13 HR (in a Twins uniform at least)

After today's game Dozier has 14 HR and 14 SB. Can he keep up the pace and finish out a 30-30 season? And if so, will he be the only one in MLB this year?
Gomez (12 HR, 11 SB) and Blackmon (11...
I feel like I'm flogging the Joe Mauer dead horse a bit here, but seriously, is there a health issue that needs some DL time to sort out? Back? Concussion hangover? Mauer's last 100 PA:
Joe Mauer vs LHP:
76 PA .211/.282/.211 30% K rate. Brutal.

I can see 6-8 and the rubber band still firmly in place at 29-29 by the end of this stretch.
Of 50 Major Leaguers to have played at least 40 full innings at 1B so far this season:
Miguel Cabrera ranks 2nd in BRef DWAR with 0.3
Joe Mauer ranks 45th at -0.5
Chris Colabello is 50th at...

Reason for optimism? Through a quarter of the season the Twins are within a game of the wild card. Will be interesting to see how long they can meet the front office criterion of "playing meaningful...
Bullpen use for the past 7 days:
Duensing 4.2 IP 77 pitches
Fien 3.2 IP 53 pitches
Perkins 3.0 IP 44 pitches
Tonkin 1.0 IP 30 pitches (not used since 1 May)
Swarzak 1.2 IP 37 pitches (only...
Good job Gardy has those 13 pitchers to hang out with when his late game bench in a winnable game consists of Herrmann and a gimpy Mauer. This is incompetence bordering on negligence.

Sure would be nice to have a bench to go to in these close late games
Arcia not in the Rochester line up tonight

It's utterly inexcusable that Herrmann has started 4 of the past 6 games while Parmelee rakes in AAA, particularly as he can actually catch the ball in RF unlike Herrmann and Colabello. Accept the...
World's shortest prospect adoption!
Nick's article says it all really.
Nunez adds some infield...
...and runs allowed
I know it's early, and this thread is usually Chief's domain, but I wanted to get this one in while I could:
As of today the Twins lead the AL in runs scored....

Since when did Jose Abreu turn into Barry Bonds by the way? You can't pitch to him with 2 outs?

Nice work Tonkin. He might stay up even when Duensing is back depending on how Fien's ankle is
