Well, I think it's safe to say that Carlos Silva won't be winning the Cy Young award this year, either. With a 2-1 score going into the sixth inning, it looked as if the Twins were heading into yet another close loss, and another tough break for Mr. Silva, who would be having a good year were it not ...

From now through the dog-days of August, we will tell ourselves that the Twins are only x games out of first place, a mere x and a half out of the wild card spot, and remember that just last year we were almost a dozen games out before we went and took the crown.

Stewart's 32 now, and last year he dropped 60 points apiece from his on-base (.380-.323) and slugging (.447-.388) percenta ... More >>
And why the AL Central won't be so kind in '05 The tragedy of the weekend for the Twinkies was the prospect of losing Carlos Silva for half, or maybe all, of the season. That's since been reviewed, and the injury to his right (pushoff) knee has been deemed less serious, but it's still a bad sign: ... More >>
Silva's one thing; how's Morneau going to hold up after his beaning? It's a little too early to fire up warning flares, but the Twins in week one didn't exactly look like the world-beaters that pre-season surveys made them out to be. The obvious item of concern is Carlos Silva's knee injury. Silva w ... More >>
