    Well, you're both right as far as I'm concerned. The weather conditions are what they are and the Twins have to play in them. But also the season - with additional rounds of playoffs - has gotten...

    I'm not sure what is more depressing, the Twins or all our comments about the Twins. I think I'm going to take a break ... already.

    Great, great column, Seth. It is so good to step back for a moment. Thanks.

    I am totally invested in being a bystander ... of professional baseball (the Twins in particular) and this strikes me...

    The stat that I find most irritating is the number of saves that a closer has. It would be common sense to quantify one's ability not by the sheer number of saves but by the percentage of saves won....

    There are a lot of nasty things about getting old but having memories that fewer and fewer people have can be a good thing. I am 56 and I have much feeling for the way baseball used to be, especially...

    As far as reunions go, I think Scott Baker has a big upside and would been the wiser signing. He think he may surprise and give Seattle a solid year. Guerrier, on the other hand, seems past his...

    Wouldn't Jeff Baker be an inexpensive right-handed platoon DH for the Twins? He hits LHP great and as we know Kubel does not. Please discuss amongst yourselves.

    I like your optimism. Nothing wrong with optimism now and then.

    I am glad to read that Knoblauch is back in the mind's of Twins fans. I did some research on his rapid decline as a baseball player and it seemed linked to his father's dementia. After the game he...

    What you say is true, but I don't root for Exxon or Mobile or the Yankees, I grit my teeth, hope to hell all their holes are dry, and go on with my life.

    But fan voting for the all-star game is a travesty. a) The bigger market teams have more voters, 2) There is no limit to the number of times a fan can vote, III) Players and coaches are smarter...

    Excellent point.

    I believe about 2/3 of all starting pitchers right handed. Suzuki is a right handed batter, as is Pinto. In 2013 Pinto hit great against righties in a small sample, but Suzuki over the last three...

    Thrylos reminds us of the infamous decision to dump Hardy after 2010 because Gardy wanted the team to be faster and then summarily plugged in the woeful Nishioka into the SS spot.

    I agree with Oldgoat

    Buck seems to be just below average defender (dwar slightly minus and throws out runners in the last three years at league average but over his career is 3% below league average).

    *Perhaps Twins...

    I never understood why Twins fans booed AJ in the first place. He didn't demand to leave like C. Knoblauch, for instance, he was traded away. The booers just seemed uninformed to me.

    130 games is far too few. That would mean they play in only 80% of the games. Mauer and Morneau need to each play in 150+ games for The Twins to have a chance. Will that happen? How the hell...
