Glen Perkins: My Dead Horse

Glen Perkins: My Dead Horse [size=4][font=arial][color=rgb(0,0,0)]My article last week suggesting that the Twins trade Glen Perkins (for the right offer) is one of the most read things I've written. Although there were only a handful of comments at Twins Fan From Afar, over here at TwinsDaily there are nearly 200 comments (most of them well thought out). MLBTradeRumors also linked to the article, and it ran in the Star Tribune. In other words, more than the usual 5 found this article.[/color]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)]I don't have anything to compare with for this week, so I'm going to beat the Glen Perkins horse until it's dead. Here are 7 more working titles about Perkins, all in various stages of completion. If you feel so inclined, submit your own titles and I will also consider writing about them.[/color]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)]1) "Demote Glen Perkins."[/color]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)]2) "Deport Glen Perkins."[/color]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)]3) "How Glen Perkins is Singlehandedly Keeping Byron Buxton, Miguel Sano, Trevor May and Alex Meyer in the Minors."[/color]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)]4) "Where was Glen Perkins when Dennis Martinez Hit Kirby Puckett with that Fastball in 1995? Oh That's Interesting No One Can Seem to Account for His Whereabouts."[/color]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)]5) "How Glen Perkins Almost Cost the Twins the '91 World Series: Part 1 of 47."[/color]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)]6) "Hey, Glen: Where's Your Birth Certificate? Are you Really Even `One of Us?'"[/color]
