I was perusing the videos on mlb.com today and reliving some old glory moments when I came upon a video, posted today that discussed who two analysts thought the Twins should go after over the rest of the season and here were the picks along with my own thoughts.
Analyst #1: Jair Jurrjens
Analyst #2: Mike Pelfrey
If I had to pick on I would pick Jurrjens. 2013 has already been flushed away and while both of these
Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned. It has been 3 months and 17 days since my last post. I attribute this to 1) being busy 2) the state of the Twins having me down in the dumps and 3) laziness. However, recent trades have me excited again and wondering who's next to be moved.

Today I went to the mlb website and read some of the comments concerning Robertson's MLB debut, Revere, and Gardy's thoughts on who are All-Stars for he Twins. I also made the mistake of reading the comments and I have problems with them. 1) A large majority of the comments were simply dissing Gardy. I understand being frustrated but in my opinion Gardenhire has been a solid, if unspectacular manager. The Twins have hit a rough patch in their history and Gardy is getting ripped apart. 2) Many of
So this is slightly intimidating for me. My name is David, I grew up in southern Minnesota and have been a baseball/Twins fan for a long time. I've never written a blog before and only recently have begun participating in any sort of online forum (I used to comment on the mlb.com website but that grew old).
