  1. Wow Josh Roenicke

    by , 04-06-2013 at 11:48 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    It was another fun Minnesota Twins game to watch!! You had everything from both teams, and it just so happens the big blunder was made on the opposing team. I am not going to make this long by any means as we all watched the game, but I did want to point out some observations that I am a bit worrisome about, and some observations that I am excited about.

    1. Josh Roenicke was fricken awesome!! He was in control every batter for 3 innings. He looked like he was a machine, same ...
  2. Refreshing- Random Thoughts after series 1

    by , 04-05-2013 at 04:26 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    Last year, based on the 2011 season, I was looking at the preview to 2012.


    I couldn't help but look at how tough the schedule was, but we got to open against the Orioles, which I thought we could compete against. 0-3 NOOOOOOO, now we play the next 18 games against teams that are better than us, and it went into a tailspin after the first 21 games. This year after one series ...

    This has been an exciting part of the year every year I can remember. I have always loved playing baseball, watching baseball. I remember every year growing up in Babbitt, when the NCAA tournament was going, opening weekend of baseball, and the Masters told me that I could go out and play some catch, and hit some golf balls. I would say it has been about 20 years of this that I could probably remember. This year is a unique year because now I have ...
  4. Instead of Being Negative, lets look at the positive for the Minnesota Twins 2013

    by , 02-07-2013 at 11:18 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    I haven't had much time to go through the forums and blogs as much as I like to with the new baby on board, I do get a chance on my smartphone during my lunch every day to read TwinsDaily, and I read the Star Tribune. I have to say right now there isn't much good going on in "loserville". As quoted from most of the KFAN guys, which I can't blame right now, nothing is going right. Wild can't get things together, the Gophers are showing who they really are, the Timberwolves aren't fun ...
  5. Reflecting on 2012, Looking forward to 2013

    by , 12-28-2012 at 07:57 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    The year has come and gone, and like every year it went by very fast. For me anyway it went by really fast because I got to bring in a new person to the world. I wanted to share the best and the worst of the year mostly in a sports perspective.

    I just got SI the magazine today in the mail and they had the moments of the year in sports. A lot of the year in sports had something to do with the Olympics. I don't understand why I have never really gotten into the Olympics, but I ...
  6. Terry Ryan priorities.

    by , 12-02-2012 at 09:39 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    I was eating lunch yesterday, my good friend sends me a text saying, " There is a Yankee fan at my poker table blabbing that the Yanks are trying hard to trade for Mauer. Any word on the Twins side?" (me) "small word on sox, but not yanks, I would love for the yanks to take that $23 million off the books, and get a few players" (buddy) I would think dumping that contract would be priority. If you get useful players as well, its all gravy. (me) I looked at all available for ...

    I had a Thanksgiving Baby, Lucille Wynn Irwin!! I am a super excited father right now, just went back to my first day of work, and finally the Minnesota Twins make a move. We have all seen that after Upton signed with the Braves the Twins had to find a way to trade Span for option 2. We all know now that Span was definitely gone this year, I am glad we were able to get a lot of upside in a deal for Span. My biggest issue with this was that we are ...
  8. Minnesota Twins Handbook

    by , 11-09-2012 at 12:21 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    First off I want to thank John, Nick, Seth, and Parker, and Aaron for making the Twins Handbook, putting good time and effort into it, and making it affordable for a good read about our favorite baseball team. I wanted to comment on a few things in the book, and give my opinion on some others.

    Second off, if you haven't read the Handbook, read it. If you are a sabremetrics person or want ideas or thoughts on thinking outside the box read the "The Book" playing the percentages ...
  9. Minnesota deer hunting opener, 'thoughts in the stand', 'upcoming Twins baseball'

    by , 11-05-2012 at 12:01 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    Minnesota Deer Hunting opener obviously comes once a year. I have hunted pretty much since I was able to, around 12 years old, and it is almost a holiday in northern Minnesota. I have gone up to the Cotton/Toivola area now for the last 5 years, and I am amazed at the amount of orange you see out there for the 2 days. First off, I think a lot of people are like me, as it is a reason to get out of town, or get away with your friends. I hunt with 3 of my great friends and I look forward to getting ...
  10. Yep looking to 2013 already.

    by , 09-17-2012 at 01:51 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    I am a very frustrated Twins fan right now. I am looking at what could be a complete overhaul, or a spending spree for 2013. I am not sure what to root for. As of this second you have to look at what the Twins could throw on the mound next opening day roster.

    De Vries?
    Duensing? (Please no)
    Blackburn? (Please no)

    So lets look at diving into free agency this off season, ...
  11. T.K, Morneau, looking forward to 2013, How can you not root for the Orioles

    by , 09-10-2012 at 10:00 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    First off, I finally got a chance to watch T.K.'s speech after retiring his number. I have to say I haven't seen a more nervous person give a speech. I thought when Hrbek said that a lot of his number being up there has a lot do with the number standing next to me was pretty cool. I thought T.K. had a decent speech, I would have liked to hear a few more stories. I thought Morneaus enthusiasm about the entire thing made me really want to keep him around, he is one guy who I think appreciates ...
  12. Terry Ryans crafty move!!! Looking forward to the rest of the 2012 season!

    by , 08-06-2012 at 12:15 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    Early on Sunday morning in the midst of the Minnesota Twins trying to sweep the high and mighty Boston Red Sox, the Sox were trying to get the starting 3B for the Twins. When Terry Ryan heard about this he was trying to assess his worth. Ryan had him pegged for about a 6 pack of long sox for his players. The Sox called Terry Ryan and Sox offered the Twins a tub of eye paint. Terry Ryan knew that Valencia would be a perfect fit for the arrogant Red Sox, and it totally made sense that the Red ...
  13. Liriano deal, Gardy, Valencia

    by , 07-29-2012 at 10:41 PM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    The Liriano deal is done. When I heard this deal, and the timing of the deal I was quite surprised. First, why are we trading top tier potential pitching to the AL Central? Why are we trading before his next scheduled start? Are you sure there isn't going to be a better deal out there?
    I can't answer these questions but I can speculate. My speculation is that Liriano is hiding an injury, didn't want to take the chance at him putting a stinker out there vs the Indians and lose all ...
  14. 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw

    by , 07-24-2012 at 12:07 AM ("And we'll see ya' ... tomorrow night.")
    So baseball is the main sport going on right now. Unfortunately our Minnesota Twins conversations are pretty much surrounding the trade deadline which is unfortunate. As I watched the Twins at Sox game I was also recording the 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw. I quit watching the Twins game when the Twins got another first guy on base being down 7-2 and failing to do anything with it. I switched it to the recording of the 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw that started in 1993 when I was 13 ...
