Most of the wise and trusted Twins blogs have noted that while the team's current offense, to put it politely, sucks harder than a Super Powered Hoover. Yet, they say, help is on the way from the prospect ranks--even if many of them are currently injured.

Since returning from the disabled list, Joe Mauer has been quietly reassembling himself, like a hitting terminator emerging from the blazing hell fires of suckitude, back into the consistent--if robotic--man we all know and respect.

What The Twins' World Needs Now

Posted by PeanutsFromHeaven , 29 July 2014 · 589 views

The trade deadline is looming over the heads of Twins fans right now. Like a honed knife's edge, like a hunter's net, like a disapproving parent at the doorway of a kegger thrown by their independent child: it's looming.

Joe Mauer, Michael Bradley and the Problem with Artistic Athletes

Posted by PeanutsFromHeaven , 29 June 2014 · 59 views

So I've been more or less completely consumed with the World Cup this month. Watching every match I can, reading interviews, reports, reviewing highlights, and writing like a maniac . But I still think of baseball (and can prove it with stuff on another blog ), perhaps never more clearly than when I was watching a World Cup match with some friends last Th...

Posted by PeanutsFromHeaven , 24 June 2014 · 39 views

Should you be inclined to see this post with some pictures of my ugly mug posing with the cards check out my main blog page. Otherwise...WORDS AHOY!

I finally did it. I told myself I ought to. I explained all the ways why. I made sure that I actually could do it, and then I did it.
