Those glorious Twins bathrobes: A gimmick worth cheering for

The Twins rallied to walk off the Tigers with two runs in the bottom of the 10th, right around the same time Cleveland was doing the same thing to the first-place White Sox. The combination moved the Twins within a half-game of the division lead. But during and after those developments, the only thing many Twins fans wanted to talk about was … bathrobes? As our La Velle E. Neal III reports, Twins third baseman Josh Donaldson gave custom robes to his teammates — some casual elegance as they enter...

Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’

LOS ANGELES — It looks like baseball’s unwritten rules are in for a rewrite. The latest flareup in the sport’s culture wars came Monday night when Fernando Tatis Jr. took a healthy cut on a 3-and-0 pitch with the bases loaded and his team leading by seven runs in the eighth inning. The San Diego Padres’ 21-year-old star hit a grand slam. The Texas Rangers took offense, throwing behind the back of the next hitter, Manny Machado, and Rangers manager Chris Woodward bemoaned the disdain for baseball...

‘The A’s Are Loaded Top To Bottom,’ Says CBS San Francisco’s Dennis O’Donnell

(KPIX) — Opening day of the abbreviated MLB season is scheduled for July 23, four months after the original opening day. The San Francisco Giants will face the Dodgers in Los Angeles. (The top half of the East Coast-West Coast doubleheader features the New York Yankees and World Series champion Washington Nationals.) The rebuilding Giants may benefit from the 60-game season. But they’ll face an uphill battle to unseat the Dodgers from atop the National League West. The Dodgers have owned the div...

New study proves absence really does make the heart grow fonder

New research, led by behavioral neuroscience assistant professor Zoe Donaldson explores what drives our mammalian instinct to create lasting bonds - and what exactly happens when we are apart from people we share those bonds with.Studying prairie voles (who fall under the 3-5% of mammals who, along with humans, are monogamous), Donaldson and her team discovered a unique set of cluster cells that light up when reunited with a mate after a period of separation. This study is just the tip of new de...

A Minny switch: Sano moves across diamond for Donaldson

For the Twins to land free agent Josh Donaldson, Miguel Sano knew what would be asked of him. Instead, Sano sent a video to Donaldson, lobbying the 2015 American League MVP to join the Twins. Understand, too, that Sano has appeared in just 31 games at first base since making his big league debut in 2015, spending the last five seasons working to improve at third.

What to make of Twins starting pitchers after they add another in Mookie Betts trade

But the Twins did what good teams do, and that's adding starting-pitching depth ad infinitum. The Twins have had an inarguably good offseason, with much of that good stemming from landing perennial MVP candidate Josh Donaldson to man the hot corner for the next half decade. Donaldson's long been a thorn in the White Sox side - a career .

Are Twins shedding 'cheap' label, becoming attractive in free agency?

When it comes to perceptions about the Twins and how they operate in free agency, there are two narratives that sometimes compete with each other and sometime seem intertwined. First, there is the idea that the Twins won't spend big. Second, there is the idea that big-time free agents don't want to sign here because they prefer larger markets and/or warmer year-round climates. There is merit to both notions, frankly. Exactly a year ago, as luck would have it, I wrote extensively about the Twins ...

Josh Donaldson vs. the Twins: Huge success and a notable dust-up with Glen Perkins

Josh Donaldson has a .395 career batting average, .487 on-base percentage and .852 slugging percentage in 191 career plate appearances against the Twins, with all three representing the highest marks for an opponent (minimum 100 PAs) in Twins history.

Josh Donaldson says decision to sign with Twins over Braves, Nationals came down to money

The Nationals made an offer to free-agent Josh Donaldson this winter but talks didn't progress much deeper than that, the third baseman told NBC Sports Washington's Tim Shovers at the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Florida, over the weekend. "I had a talk with the general manager [Mike Rizzo] and I had a conversation with Davey [Martinez] as well," Donaldson said. "Had a couple conversations with some of the teammates but nothing that was structurally or anything l...

Josh Donaldson joining Twins is best-case scenario for Cubs, Kris Bryant trade market

Donaldson has also been linked to the Rangers, Nationals and Braves - whom he played for last season - this winter, with the Twins being more of a dark horse candidate. He becomes the latest star free agent third basemen to depart from his incumbent team this offseason - Anthony Rendon left the Nationals for the Angels; Mike Moustakas left the Brewers for the Reds. For the Cubs, Donaldson's decision is the best-case scenario.

AP source: Twins, 3B Donaldson agree to $92M, 4-year deal

The Minnesota Twins and 2015 AL MVP Josh Donaldson have agreed to a $92 million, four-year contract, according to a person familiar with the deal. Donaldson, a three-time All-Star who broke in with Oakland as a catcher in 2010, averaged 37 home runs and 100 RBIs over his three full seasons with the Blue Jays from 2015-17.

Twins, Josh Donaldson have had frequent contract talks

KTSP TV's Darren Wolfson reported earlier today that the Twins and free agent third baseman Josh Donaldson have had “darn near daily dialogue.” Donaldson apparently likes the idea of hitting against AL Central pitching as opposed to that in the NL East, where he spent last season with the Braves. Last week, we learned that Donaldson has multiple four-year contract offers on the table. The Twins are among those having made the offer, along with the Braves and Nationals.

MLB Rumors: The Nationals are one of three teams to reportedly offer Josh Donaldson a $100 million contract

The third base free-agent market is all but dried up, leaving 34-year-old slugger Josh Donaldson as the last big name on the board. After a season in which he hit 37 home runs and drove in 94 runs for the Braves, Donaldson was widely considered the second-best option at third base this winter behind Anthony Rendon. When it was reported that Donaldson could end up with a four-year deal, it was difficult to determine what team would be willing to go that far for a player past his prime.
