Twins' false positive COVID test makes for stressful day

At least for a while, postponing Thursday's Twins game and even the weekend series in Anaheim could not be ruled out. But after a morning of uncertainty, the result was determined to be a false positive.

Twins 4, Red Sox 3: Take back the ninth

The sweet, sweet pose of victory. | Photo by Hannah Foslien/ The bullpen giveth away, the bats taketh back. The story had been like every other, the Twins taking an early lead only to hand it back to their opponent in the late innings. Then it wasn’t. After the bullpen gave back a 3-0 lead in the eighth, Max Kepler brought home Luis Arraez with a bloop single in the bottom of the ninth, Minnesota’s first final-frame run of the season, to give the Twins a 4-3 walk-off win over the Red Sox. Much has been said during the Twins’ losing streak about their inability to...

Game 13: Red Sox at Twins

Pictured above: the Twins during their last five games. | Photo by Hannah Foslien/ Minnesota looks to halt their slide. It may be 13 that is considered unlucky, but it’s the first 12 games of the Twins’ season that have felt unfortunately Minnesotan. Now on a five-game losing streak and at the bottom of the AL Central, the Twins will attempt to regain their collective balance and light up a sluggish offense that has scored just five runs in the first three games of their series against the Red Sox. Unfortunately, not only has Boston been cumulatively hot, the...

Wait. What? Did the Twins know this when they signed Simmons?

Photo by Brace Hemmelgarn/Minnesota Twins/ I have written this and submitted it prior to yesterday’s doubleheader. Many of us might radically change our perceptions about this team (probably irrationally given that it’s only mid-April) one way or the other, depending on whether the Twins win or lose today’s games, and our opinions/worries probably won’t change so much, if they split. I’m not worried, are you worried? Actually, I’m a little worried. The Red Sox seem to be a pretty good team, so losing to them is not the end of the end. Having said that, the...

Not much is going ideally for the entire Twins team right now, but Miguel Sano's at-bats have become frustrating to watch as his strikeouts pile up.

Red Sox 7, Twins 1: The ugly stretch continues

The Red Sox are red hot. The Twins are not. | Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports Suddenly, the wheels are falling off It’s official. The Minnesota Twins, the home-run-record-shattering Bomba Squad from 2019, is no longer with us. The Twins’ anemic offense during the shortened 2020 season was apparently not an aberration. No Jonathan Schoop. No CJ Cron. No offense. Okay. That’s admittedly dramatic, but still. The Twins have scored five runs over the past three games/23 innings of baseball. The pitching had been solid, until I apparently jinxed Jose Berrios and Tyler...
