THANK YOU From Twins Daily!

As Thanksgiving arrives and we reflect on all of the many things that we are thankful for, our team at Twins Daily has no shortage of gratitude.
First and foremost, we're thankful for our readers and commenters here on the site. You all have made this an amazing place to come and discuss our favorite team every day. So far this year, more than half a million unique visitors have stopped by Twins Daily, blowing away our total for the entirety of 2014. We are on track to approach 10 million page views. As long as you folks keep coming, we'll keeping working our hardest to provide the best independent baseball coverage in town.

On that note, we're also thankful to everyone who has bought a copy of our Offseason Handbook. It's a fun (though exhausting) product to put together, and the reception in terms of sales and feedback made those efforts feel worthwhile. If you haven't picked up a copy yet, it makes a great read for the long holiday weekend as the Winter Meetings approach.

We're thankful for our moderators, who maintain sanity and civility in our forums. That can be a tremendous challenge at times, but these individuals work tirelessly to ensure that the TD message boards remain a welcoming environment where fans of all stripes can feel comfortable expressing their viewpoints and exchanging ideas.

We're thankful for every last blog contribution that is submitted to the site. I've read a lot of really great stuff here this year that didn't come from any of the core writers and I've discovered a number of new voices that I thoroughly enjoy. That was always a big part of the vision when we first launched three years ago.

We're thankful this Twins team that we cover so obsessively has returned to relevance with a winning season and a clear upward trajectory. With a big wave of young talent entering the fold, and a couple of major moves already in the books here in this young offseason, there's plenty of reason for optimism that even better things are on the horizon.

We're extremely excited for everything that lies ahead this winter and into next season. It's a great time to be a Twins fan and we're grateful to be able to share the ride with all of you. Have an awesome holiday!

Gosh, I'm blushing.  All those times I was banned really meant something now ....  

 

But, more seriously, fun site and a real big thanks especially to Seth for his excellent coverage of the minor leagues.

You had me until "We're thankful for every last blog contribution that is submitted to the site." I've seen hundreds of blog posts that have been deleted (spam). But that translates into a thank you to the mods!

 

And thank YOU, Nick!...and everyone else.

 

Best site ever.

At the risk of sounding all mushy and stuff........("There's no crying in baseball. There's no crying in baseball!")......a hearty and heart-felt "Thank YOU" from myself, and all of us, for bringing this site to us and the entire Twins community. It is absolutely my favorite website on the internet, and the very first site that I check each day. (not to mention throughout the day.  LOL)  Especially during minor league season!

 

As a secondary note, a big "Thank You" to my fellow posters for all of the additions, submissions, agreements and debates. And I have to say, it seems there have been a lot of new additions recently that have brought some great, fresh voices. Thank you all for stopping by...and make sure you stick around for a while.

You're welcome twins daily. Feels good to receive affirmation. I'll continue to attempt to hijack threads, ramble aimlessly about being mad, cut down opinions like the amazon, and inject wit.

The real thanks goes everybody at Twins Daily for consistently putting up interesting and thought provoking sports writing day after day.  It's not easy and I really do appreciate it.

 

I don't post much, but that's because I'm usually sneaking on at work while the boss is out of the room.  I read just about everything and will often times double back to older articles to see if there are any new posts in the comments sections.

 

If they ever put a security camera in the room where it can get a clear shot of my screen, I'm toast.

 

Thanks again everybody!

Thank you to all of the people who work hard behind the scenes here at Twins Daily (Owner(s), Administrators, Moderators etc.) to ensure this is a fun, informative, and interactive experience for Twins fans. Your hard work does not go unnoticed and it is very much appreciated.

 

Also, thank you to all of the Twins fans who post here. There seems to be a lot of people here who are very knowledgeable about the Twins organization and the game of baseball in general. I enjoy reading about and discussing baseball / the Twins with all of you.
