Judge hits 45th HR, Gregorius passes Jeter

I have talked to or texted with a lot of the Puerto Rican players in MLB, and a lot of them have not heard from their families regarding the impact of Hurricane Maria. This morning, Hurricane Maria became the first category 4 hurricane to make landfall in Puerto Rico since the 1920's. After the direct hit, most of the island is without power and communication is very limited.

Can the Twins hold off the Angels?

The Yankees are all but locked into a wild-card spot, while the Twins have a significant advantage over the Angels despite losing four of five. The Rangers' two-game win streak is probably too little, too late, while losing streaks by the Mariners (four games) and Royals (three) have just about sunk them.

Mauer showing signs of his old self

For the first nine years of his career, Joe Mauer was one of the most complete hitters in baseball, taking home the 2009 AL MVP award. Since a concussion ended his 2013 season, he has fallen to merely solid. But this season has been a resurgence for Mauer, as he is hitting .306 with an .810 OPS.

Buxton blossoming into all-around star?

Byron Buxton is finally rounding into the player the Twins dreamt he would be when they made him the second overall pick of the 2012 draft. In addition to his contributions on defense, Buxton is one of nine players with an OPS above 1.000 since July 4 and ranks as the second-best baserunner in the majors per Fangraphs' all-encompassing baserunning stat.

Twins O-K not generating strikeouts

Minnesota pitchers haven't had the swing-and-miss stuff that generally defines postseason-caliber staffs. Yet, we're halfway through September and the Twins are still on the inside of the playoff bubble.
