After yesterday's commanding 6-1 victory over the Texas Rangers, our beleaguered Minnesota Twins have won three straight series, and are 9-3 thus far in June. This after taking only three series in the first two full months, and two of them were against a pair of the weakest-hitting clubs i ... More >>
Jesus, there's not much to say about that game, is there? 7-0, the Jays running rampant over the beleaguered Scott Baker. These things happen. If we were in a tight pennant race (division race... whatever), this day might be chalked up to luck--both the Tigers and Indians lost, and Kansas C ... More >>
So the Minnesota Twins lost their third game in a row to the division leading Detroit Tigers. What now? 9 games out at this point, pretty much the same as last year.

The first half of the 2006 baseball is behind us, and while it hasn't exactly been a winning season per se for our dear Twinks (in any other division it might have been), it certainly has been one hell of an interesting ride.
The Twins (finally) discover the youth movement
As crazy as it sounds, for the last few years I've felt like the Twins have the potential to be better than the Yankees, at least in head-to-head competition.
Snapshots of a long-shot season to come
THE LINEUP Shannon Stewart, LF: Like his new teammate Rondell White, he's a pretty good player on the downhill side of a career marked by extraordinary physical wear and tear. Stewart's 32 now, and last year he dropped 60 points apiece from his on-base (.380-.323) and slugging (.447-.388) percenta ... More >>
