I'm a fan of the ESPN Baseball Today podcast, so I was thrilled to hear Mark Simon mention Twins Daily by name on Friday's episode. He was digging in to his previous, and turns out wrongly-held, notion that Trevor Plouffe was the worst player in baseball. He referenced an article by Parker that broke down Plouffe's swing from the beginning of the season and now.

Here is a link to the ESPN Podcast Archive page: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/podcast/archive?id=2386164

The episode is from Friday, June 22, and the segment starts about 25 minutes in.

I thought it was cool that Simon just kind said "Twins Daily site" as if everybody should know about it.

Congrats Twins Daily and Parker!

That's great! Parker did an excellent job of breaking down Plouffe's swing in that article. Good to see him get some pub for it.

Parker's article was one of the best I have ever seen anywhere.

Parker is so cool. I've met him, you know. Nice guy. But kind of a lame drinker.

But kind of a lame drinker.

Says the guy who drank water through a month and a half of Gleeman and the Geek podcasts.

Twins Daily deserves the recognition as does Hageman - he is a very good writer. Both should get some props!

If Parker is 'a lame drinker', then what does that make me?

Simon is a great guy. I submitted an article I wrote for BYTO regarding September record and playoff success, and he emailed me back and forth a bit before talking about it for a chunk of one of the podcasts. I've emailed him on some baseball statistical oddities ever since, and he's chatted with me a few times via email about some findings. I do wish there was less Keith Law on that podcast, though.

I skip the Mark Simon podcasts and only listen to Keith Law. To each their own I suppose. Mark Simon talks like he's gleefully eating a bowl full of mashed potatoes.
