    Hey Bobby,

    I saw your "suicide blog" the other day, and was a little surprised. I think you should keep going with your stuff. Your writing is good (unlike some who post here), and I enjoy reading your opinions.

    TwinsDaily, and blogging in general, is tough and mostly thankless. Sometimes, I get an idea for a post that I think is great, and I'll only have 70 or so people read it, and no comments (even people disagreeing with me is better than nothing at all!). Other times, I'll post something just to sort of "keep up" with the Rock Cats coverage, and I'll have 200 page views and 5 comments. It's impossible to figure it out.

    It's also tough because some people on here really, really enjoy leaving snide comments, sort of like on the Star Trib boards, which is why I no longer post there.

    Definitely keep writing. Perhaps the best thing about this website is that everyone can have a voice, even if Seth, Parker, John and Nick's voices are a little bit louder!

The Ed Wood of Baseball General Managers

by Bark's Lounge on 09-01-2013 at 12:32 AM
Okay, It may be going a bit far to compare Terry Ryan to Ed Wood. I must say, at least Ed Wood has eccentricities and a personality that makes him more interesting.

Terry Ryan is not as bad as a GM as Ed Wood is a movie director, but I think M. Night Shyamalan is a very good comparable.

M. Night Shyamalan’s movies from from 1999 to 2004 were great to acceptable – everything that he did afterward was a miserable train wreckage. From 2006-2013 he has served as a director/producer

The Setting Sun of Morneau

by Bark's Lounge on 07-19-2013 at 02:19 AM
It sure seems like the MLB media and a portion of the Twins Community thinks Justin Morneau is on his way out of Minnesota VIA trade. I will have to see it to believe it, but I have resigned myself to this scenario becoming a definite possibility.

I want to cut to the chase. Morneau certainly did not live up to his potential. 7 years ago I expected that his numbers and accomplishments would be much further along than they are now. I do not say this to be negative, I do not say this

“Dreams Do Come True”

by Bark's Lounge on 07-16-2013 at 12:38 AM
Most of the time I do not question what moves the Twins make. Long ago I learned that it would be a waste of my time to get upset about such things as they are 90% upsetting to me. I like baseball and I like the Twins, but fortunately I do not have to throw in the towel anymore - for me the towel does not exist. I just observe from the sidelines, nod my head, grin and bare it, and forge ahead.

I guess I somewhat want to be positive and wish Doug Bernier a heart felt congratulations.

Bark’s Lounge: Draft Party

by Bark's Lounge on 06-07-2013 at 12:33 AM
Tonight I went to a MLB Draft Party. I never thought I would see that happen. I guess the times they are a changin’.

I get to the party that is being hosted by a close friend, who I will call Lonny Frizzwhistle, and I enter his residence and see a mix of people that doesn’t make sense. When I am at my optimal sense of being, maybe I could have envisioned this sorted group of characters, right now, I am in a human slump, and in all reality, I was not mentally up to dealing with what

The Pedroia Factor

by Bark's Lounge on 05-22-2013 at 08:48 PM
On this site there is obviously a lot of chatter about firing Ron Gardenhire and Rick Anderson. I do not disagree with those opinions, but I have to stop short of fully supporting them.

The Twins are a mess right now and it is quite clear changes need to be made. Maybe changing out some of the starting pitchers will help a little – I cannot see how it would hurt at this junction in time.

My greatest disappointment with this club is the absence of an emotional leader,
