One of your best! I listen/fall asleep to your shtick every week. Gleeman's suggestion that Jonathan's new walk-up song should be "Shoop" by Salt-n-Pepa was outstanding.

Mind you, "Shoop" came off of Salt-n-Pepa's 4th comeback album and was certified gold. Hopefully Schoop can scoop up a little comeback love too.

On other note: If Schoop chooses "Shoop" maybe he could switch to "Push It" in bunting situations...

And, the video: Shoop https://g.co/kgs/Y5PiaQ

Well that was an epic ending...

I feel like you guys were arguing two different things, but those two things are close enough to each other that you guys couldn't quite distinguish between them

 

a) John was arguing that Ownership isn't putting it's best foot forward (Rays being the prime example). And that counts as "not trying"

b.) Aaron was arguing that team management (GM, CBO, etc) was still actively trying to win as many games as possible given the restrictions from above. And that does count as trying.

 

The Rays GM (or whatever his title is) clearly wants to win as many games as possible, but is forced to do some things that hinder that. Whereas the M's and Diamondbacks GMs are actively making their team worse (albeit for a long-term reason)

I loved it.This off season is boring and discouraging so far.Big deal - we got Schoop - does he increase our wins by 1 or 2 next year?So are we trying to win?No we are waiting for Buxton and Sano - try taking on how long they should wait and what they need to see in some segment.

But more important thanks for not deleting your debate - argument.I loved it.I was waiting for Aaron to walk off.The frustration was really fun because frustration is so basic to being a Twins fan. 

It's a good thing the TD moderators weren't around to hear all of that bickering.
