I use "Eddie Rosario, Glory Hog " as if it's a bad thing. Far from it.

Consider me your friendly, neighborhood baseball barber, if they still exist. I coat and lather you with Baseball Ref homer and hit charts until your head spins (if anyone cares, I'm going into the 12-step process for souls imbibing on the play index search).

Yes, I'm not sure what's more unbelievable - the fact that the Twins could score five round-trippers in the same inning , or the fact that stuff like the scene below made it past the network censors in 1966. Be that as it may, I always enjoy a lookback on the great Twins feats of yesteryear, in addition to childhood TV guilty pleasures.

It was a sunshiny, spring day like today in Minnesota in 1978 when the California Angels hitter and second baseman Bobby Grich bullrushed Twins pitcher Roger Erickson . What better time for grown men to engage in fisticuffs and flying sucker punches than when Mr. Blue Sky is shining on their labors?

It's a writer's clinic. Or, at least, one make-believe writer (that would be me) taking time out from the "Sano Show" to chat with a real writer, formerly of Bloomington, MN, on his views on some classic Twins players, good baseball books, and his disdain of Derek Jeter worship at "The Tovar Of Bloggers: A Chat With Erik Lundegaard " at Classic Minnesot...
