2012 already reminiscent of 2011 for Twins

The Twins’ Liam Hendriks will miss his scheduled start Sunday because of food poisoning.

Shades of 2011 all over again?

We don’t have the time — nor the intestinal fortitude — to recount all the bizarre ailments that sidelined various Twins players last summer. Suffice to say, this food poisoning scare brings us back. It brings us back to a time where Joe Mauer missed a huge chunk of the season with something called bilateral leg weakness (that was prior to the games Mauer missed later in the summer after he tweaked his neck … looking up at a fly ball) and Delmon Young decided to miss a game — and ultimately go on the Disabled List — because he couldn’t get loose on a chilly spring night.
