    Gardy's Playhouse Nicknames

    7129

    I heard an interview recently where Gardy referred to Mike Pelfrey as "Pelly." While I think "Stadium Emptier" is probably a more appropriate name for Pelfrey, "Pelly" seems to be a typical...

    I know Pelfrey is a painfully slow worker on the mound but today he looked even more deliberative than usual. It was hard not to feel he as if he dreaded every pitch he had to make, hoping to clip...

    Gibson's presence wasn't going to translate to ticket sales but Sano is definitely a draw to Spring Training. ($$) I take the over.

    More of a misery team. As opposed to the Royals - who are more of a Missouri team.

    Name anyone Barry Larkin has ever dated.

    PS - If you were Jim Rice would you have prefered to NOT be a Hall-of-Famer as opposed to now being the Hall of Fame's Mendoza Line?

    1. Require TC Bear to wear pants or allow us not to. No more double standard.
    2. Allow somebody other than a Twins fan to raise the Twins territory flag. Perhaps the hamster rancher in Luverne who...

    Kind of makes you want to relive the 2013 season all over again. (The funny bits, anyway.) Thanks!
  8. Three Twins Hitters Who REALLY Liked the Dome

    While the Vikings turned out the lights on the Metrodome this weekend, it's the Twins' years that I'll remember when I think of it. While it was much-maligned, it undeniably provided the Twins with a...

    Unless the Twins have a great underground pharmaceutical lab, don't expect Sano's power to build into his late 20s. It's starting to look like after the PED ban that players' power curves don't peak...

    The Twins have an extra $25 million for 2014 thanks to the new national TV deals MLB negotiated. Since that more than covers the per annum expense of Nolasco and Hughes, you can't say the Twins are...

    Can somebody tell me what happened to Nolasco at the end of the season? He fell off a cliff at the end of September getting clobbered in three consecutive starts to the tune of 19 runs over 11...

    Only 4 times in the history of baseball has a batter had 20 or more doubles, 20 or more triples, 20 or more homeruns and 20 or more stolen bases in the same season. Surprisingly, this rare feat...

    That Mackey's piece on how to fix the Twins is now referred to as an annual article by Seth is a bit depressing.

    Very true. Kudos to the Twins batters for their sensing of when they were going to ground into one and having the good sense to strike out, instead.

    Unfortunately the Twins low rate for grounding into double plays was a consequence of their ridiculous strikeout rate rather than a mastery with the bats or their speed to first base.

    Credit the Twins for realizing that changing the manager now would be about as effective as changing drivers in a race where the other entrants have Corvettes and you have a tiny clown car with a...

    First of all, in a business scenario Gardy isn't merely an important employee, he's an executive in the company.

    Secondly, companies don't choose termination because they are too lazy or...

    For most batters the leg kick is a timing mechanism and will vary from pitcher to pitcher and pitch type to pitch type.

    Actually the GM will need to find a 1B who can outhit Mauer - not Pinto - since Pinto still ends up catching when Mauer takes another one off the noggin back there.

    The line from home plate to CF runs from south to north at Coors Field while it runs from west to east at Target Field. Not comparable from a batter's eye background, sorry.
