    Twins radio has been awful ever since they left WCCO. I remember driving in downtown Minneapolis all the time and still getting a bad signal from 1500. KTWIN isn't any better.

    It bums me out what happened with Worley. He seemed like he could settle in as a solid No. 3 or 4 starter and be a fun personality to boot. I hope he makes it through waivers as I still think he has...

    This is long overdue. He was a favorite of mine growing up and a hell of a player. I was upset when he left but I never blamed him. He was a great player on a terrible team. Who wouldn't want to...

    Hmm, you could be right. I forgot about Glynn. I hope their plan is to gradually turn over the staff with the core of Glynn, Steinbach, Brunansky, and Cuellar. I just have a really bad feeling it...

    A co-worker pointed this out to me several years ago and it has since driven me crazy. Bert will say "right there" in almost every sentence. Like "That was a good slider right there" or "He goes...
