    I've been thouroghly enjoying this site for about a year. I am new to forums with my only experience being newspaper comment sections like the Strib. I am struck by the stark difference between the Strib and the TD forums with the level of discourse at the Strib being unbearable it made me wonder how you have kept this site so free of crushing negativity? Are there many who have been blocked? Whatever the case I appreciate the good work!

    How do I get the auto correct feature to work? Is it something on my end, or is there somewhere on this website I can enable it? I post from my iphone.

Impressions after the Sunday game in Cleveland

by ashburyjohn on 04-06-2014 at 04:29 PM
After watching the Twins today in Cleveland, several impressions come to the forefront.

First, the pitching seems to be no better than last year, and quite possibly even worse. The starter, Nolasco, stunk it up with 5 runs in only 4 innings, and could not seem to locate his pitches to save his life. The bullpen quickly coughed up two more runs, a performance that could put a game essentially out of reach by the halfway mark.

The defense was also laughable, with somebody

Jimmy Rollins being shopped

by ashburyjohn on 12-16-2013 at 11:25 AM
MLBTR has an item stating that the Phillies would be willing to trade Jimmy Rollins. In the article, it's stated:

"Rollins, 35, struggled at the plate in 2013, batting .252/.318/.348..."

Meanwhile our resident starter pleased some fans with his progress, posting .221/.281/.330.

I don't particularly advocate trading for Rollins, as I assume the Phils want prospects the Twins won't want to part with and the Twins won't want to invest $11M a year in

Separated at birth?

I didn't know what Ricky Nolasco looked like until he signed with the Twins and the same photo kept showing up. I had a sense of deja vu but couldn't name it until today:


Road Trip for Arizona Fall League?

by ashburyjohn on 09-01-2013 at 02:15 PM

When the Twins announced their players being sent to the Arizona Fall League (AFL), John Bonnes made an off-hand comment about a Twins Daily road trip. Something of that magnitude might be a little fanciful, but I'm thinking about going and he and I agreed maybe a clearinghouse would be useful for those who plan to go, or are considering it.

The Twins players will be on the Glendale Desert Dogs. All the AFL games are in the Phoenix area. Our guys have games from

Swiftian satire must be attempted only by people actually named Jonathan

by ashburyjohn on 08-12-2013 at 12:21 AM
In response to a forum reply that I felt crossed a boundary, where the writer questioned the courage of Andrew Albers, instead of just deleting the post I decided to try a bit of "see how you like it". Since it stirred up some controversy, I am posting here the private message I later sent:

Brock and I were both basically reacting to one sentence:

Albers could have at least had the balls to fight for it if he really wanted it.
