Torii Hunter, All-Time Near-Great Centerfielder, Retires

My defining memory of Torii Hunter’s baseball career comes from the 2002 All-Star Game, when he robbed Barry Bonds of a home run. Bonds was in the middle of four straight seasons of destroying space-time, but Hunter was pretty darn good too, finishing sixth in the AL MVP race and winning his second of nine straight… »10/26/15 9:55pm10/26/15 9:55pm

After hitting a three-run home run to put the Indians up 10-1 on the Twins in the second game of Wednesday’s doubleheader, Jose Ramirez had the sheer audacity to watch his blast and flip his bat.

Twins Rip Tigers 20-6, Get A Couple Homers Off The Shortstop

Andrew Romine came in to pitch the eighth inning for the Tigers in what was then a 17-5 thumping by the Twins.

Logan Darnell of the Rochester Red Wings, a Triple-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, put the finishing touches on a no-hitter against the Durham Bulls Monday night. Darnell only pitched the last six innings of the game, though, and the man who originally started the game isn't even a member of the Red Wings anymore. »8/15/14 10:08am8/15/14 10:08am

The Twins Have Apparently Found The Real-Life Sidd Finch

One of the weirdest baseball stories of the year is about Brandon Poulson, a 24-year-old pitching prospect whom the Twins just plucked from the void for the price of $250,000. Nobody's ever heard of Poulson until now, but if the early stories about him are to be believed, he's basically the non-hoax version of Sidd… »7/30/14 10:26am7/30/14 10:26am
