A's Interested In Sam Fuld?

Minnesota Twins Talk Today, 02:32 PM
Of course you trade him and see if you can even get a C-/D+ prospect. He'll be DFAd after the season and you can pick him up then.

Wouldn't trading him for anything represent found money? I'd suggest a low A or rookie ball player for a return.

1,000,000 Reasons

Attached Image: Fotolia_16304314_S.jpg You would think that when Twins Daily hits a milestone like one million views over a month, as we did yesterday, it would cause a elation. And usually you would be right.

But this time, it was a little overwhelming. Because while I forget details about the beginnings of blogging I still vividly remember certain feelings.

I remember the emptiness of hollering into the void. I remember the elation of finding an audience. [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]I remember the backlash, the anger at cowardly throwaway attacks. The disbelief at shameful obstacles. The frustration. The hopelessness. The resignation.

For the better part of a decade, the naysayers had the louder voice. They used it to tell you that nobody will listen. That your passion is of no interest. That your voice belongs in your mothers basement.

To them I'll reply: 1,000,000.

One million times per month people want to read your thoughts. One million times per month, people want to read your research. One million times per month, people want to share your passion.

To me, that is a dream come true. To the naysayers, it is a fad or a lark or an insignificant detail. They are making the same mistake they made ten years ago: they underestimated you.

They didn't think you were passionate enough to find us, kind enough to share, civil enough to discuss, or talented enough to write. And you are all those things and there are millions of you and now we know this, can show this.

Which is a very long way of saying two words: Thank You. I don't pretend to know everyone's motivations for visiting Twins Daily, but whatever the reason, it feels like a miracle. Elation isn't enough.
