As I was throwing out papers today, I came across the reasons the Yankees were doomed to lose the first game of their series against the Twins. The notes were a mess; as I had written them late on Sunday night but my reasoning actually turned out to be pretty accurate so I thought why […]
After a lovely weekend of taking two of three from the Angels, the Yankees looked good minus Phil Hughes. Last night the Yankees opened a four game set in the Bronx against the Minnesota Twins with a 3-7 loss. It didn’t help that Carl Pavano (aka. American Idle) was on the mound for the Twins, […]
The Minnesota Twins plunged to the bottom of the AL Central in 2011 finishing with a 63-99 record, which was the second worst in baseball.

Nova popped up mid-pennant race last season for seven starts; he posted a 1-2 record, a 4.50 ERA, striking out 26, over 42 innings pitched. He walked 17 batters and allowed 21 earn runs, but Nova’s overall performance wasn’t as bad as the stats make it seem. Still, the Nova from last year would not have been named as the Yankees fourth starter.
Two-time reigning AL Central Champions; the Minnesota Twins are looking to three-peat in 2011.

It is no secret that the Yankees are in the market for another starting pitcher, which I am not opposed too but not right now. My understanding […]
