Every Monday of the baseball season I have to check the ESPN mlb website by noon. why might you ask? Too see the power rankings and where the twins rank in compassion with rest of MLB. Here is the link for this week's rankings http://espn.go.com/mlb/powerrankings
Now, I am sure there are more rankings out there that are more accurate and fair to teams that are not covered in the Eastern Sports Programming Network.(the Twins are near the bottom) But one of the reasons I like these rankings is the comment section on the right column of the table. Most of the time , if I am not mistaken, there is a comment by Twins Daily's own Nick Nelson. He usaully provides a great sentence that accurately describes the week that the Twins had. Then ESPN lets Nick post the Twins daily link after his comment. This is link is part of the reason I found this website.
However for some reason, this week NICK didnt provide the comment. Instead ESPN.com did.!!!!
They wrote some silly thing about Scott Diamond.
So my questions for you all are..
What is ESPN's connection with Twins daily?
Why is there some weeks they provide the week and sometimes they do not?
Maybe Nick could elaberate..but a curious fan wants to know.
Also the term power rankings makes me think about this classic YouTube Clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRuNxHqwazs
