An outsiders Fantasy view of the Twins I am always looking for outsider opinions on the Twins since it is too easy to have hometown bias. All of us who root for the Twins follow them with much more emotion and fan hopefulness that allows them to rise higher in our opinions than an outsider might see them. So, I was interested in the Athletic’s fantasy baseball rankings. I know fantasy and real...

Eddie or Miguel or Byron or Max?  You choose Since the main TD articles keep talking about Eddie Rosario being traded, cut, cursed or whatever you want to call it I thought it might be instructive to do a comparison of all the six year players on the roster.

A May 2020 CNBC report said, “Under the MLB’s plan, the highest-paid players could lose about 80% of their salaries, while players making the least amount could keep up to 90% of their pay. The plan calls for play...

Bring a Glove ESPN had a gold glove preview which I enjoy because it lists the three finalists and not just the winner https://www.espn.com...ars-elite-field so we get 27 candidates to think about for each league.

Old school - sure to make a lot of you mad

Posted by mikelink45 , 23 October 2020 · 1,745 views
sacrifice, stolen base
Community Blog Post
Old school - sure to make a lot of you mad I had an idea. What if someone got a hit, stole second - maybe third and someone else got a hit and they scored?

In new school does that not count?

What if someone got a hit, someone bunted and then a single brought them home? Does that not mean that the run scores?

Do I have to wait for a HR? Should I look for a K instead of a sacrifice?

Do I have to...
