    I've been an occasional reader over the past 8-10 years or so. On the day you posted, I went to Sid's column and it sounded like him. I hadn't heard about anything happening to him that would necessitate a ghost writer (other than being 150 not having a coherent thought about sports since he was 100 - thanks Joe). I guess I just assumed Sid wrote the columns kind of like I used to assume a guy named Franklin W. Dixon wrote those Hardy Boys books.

    Sid has been a legend to Minnesota sports history. Sometimes I hate him some times it love him. But, I always find him interesting to listen to. Hope the old fart keeps on keepin on.

    Don't know what Bruno's advise has been, but I do know he has taken Mauer's lifetime average of .320, and turned him into a .250 hitter (I know, that's not fair).
    (Indeed.)

    A nice precis of our team.

    Most players feel they are demoted too soon, even if the fans have been calling for their demotion for some time. Most of them have a ton of confidence and have succeeded at every level. You kind of have to get that to understand that these guys get a long leash so they actually understand that they have things to work on.

    While our AAA pitching staff is really doing well it is not certain that they are all going to show up in MLB and be lights out.

    I'm sure that we can improve our team. No one, including anyone on TD or employed by the Twins, knows the best way to do that.

    Nonetheless, I join many others in being very optimistic about our future.

    Bottom line - expect some cautious moves.
    Progression does not have to mean a total roster flip.

    That, in fact, would be reactionary.
