  1. Talk to Contact, Ep 93: TC Bear and his T-shirt Gun

    This week on the podcast Paul learns about ground rule triples, and strangely enough, if does not include TC Bear going on a rampage with his T-shirt gun (but we'd pay good money to see that happen). The Twins offense has struggled to score runs recently (what's new?) and Joe Mauer is still working his way back from injury. The scholarship program is over in Minnesota (again) as Matt Guerrier was DFA'd to make room for roster worthy Ryan Pressly.

  3. Jared Burton, the case for dismissal.

    It seems that anytime I start reading a thread about the Twins pitching, somehow I end up ranting about Jared Burton. There also seems to be a never ending stream of Jared Burton supporters. I don't understand this. I've decided to take a look a the numbers, and see what I can find.

    Jared Burton started out the year with a couple of clunkers and ended April with an ERA of 9.00, hitters had a .286/.419/.543 line agaisnt him, good for a wOBA of .317. Ouch! He surrended 3 home runs, and ...

    Two days prior to his release La Velle E. Neal III, affectionaly known as LEN3 to serious Twins fans, reached out to then bullpen coach Rick Stelmaszek for some information about Sidney Ponson's current pitching problems.

  9. A Lament: Jarod Burton

    A Lament

    By Percy Bysshe Shelley 1792–1822
    Retold by Paul Pleiss

    O world! O life! O time!
    On whose last steps Jarod Burton doth climb,
    Trembling at that where he had stood 66ft 6in before;
    When will return the glory of your prime?

    Out of the day and night
    A joy has taken flight;
    Fresh spring, and summer, and winter hoar,
    Move my faint heart with grief, but with ...
