For those on a low budget, I have found that one can normally find a lower price on the ESPN Mag subscription than on Insider.

You do realize that Colabello is only 6 months younger than Joe Mauer, don't you? He might be a semi-useful player right now, but generally when we talk prospect we're talking about someone with...
Vargas continues to recover from the slow start.
The Angels did MLB a big favor by coming back to win that game, because that protest would have been upheld, and they would have had to replay the game from that point. I was shocked an umpire at...

Let's go ahead and side-track it. Radke also had an awesome TV commercial early in his career. Old SEGA TV Commercial with Brad Radke "World Series baseball" by Lawrence Bridges - YouTube

They didn't win it all, but they were special. I became a Twins fan around 1972, so I experienced '72-'86 and '93-'99. Those '04-06 teams were fun to watch, especially when Santana and Liriano were...

They were the two best players on a contending team. Both won MVP awards (although I didn't think Morneau should have.) They are the kind of players that good teams build around.
Now he has. 4-4 with 2 doubles tonight.
Vargas got off to a slow start. After 11 games, he had an ugly .188/.250/.375/.625 line. On April 17th, after 3 straight 0-4 games, he wasn't in the starting lineup for the first time this year. He...

It sounds like the Twins won the trade just by the damage Liriano did to the White Sox. Anything positive Escobar and Hernandez do will just add to that.

Not a McCarver fan, but that quote is awesome.

I think the critics said it was a worse signing than the Marquis one. The contracts (1 yr/$3M vs. 2/$10M) were the main factors. Correia doesn't have to pitch worse than Marquis to make it a worse...

"We get one of these after each Correia start..."
I hope we keep the tradition up for the rest of this year and all of the next. When KC collects his Cy Young award(s) I will be the happiest...

I'll take Kennys Vargas if he's still available

Maybe I just can't relate, because I still clearly remember and still complain about the weather at a scheduled double-header in 1975.
I'm sure it says more about me than about those who won't...
We couldn't have nearly as much fun with that.
If we can get someone to take Mauer and Doumit off our hands we can clear some room for him. I guess that would make Butera his back-up, but with an offensive force like that, who needs a back-up?
It's also especially true of lower-priced starting pitchers.
I keep forgetting about that darned 2nd year. If I keep that up, maybe the rest of the world (including Correia and the...

I did like the Twin Domes concept with a shared roof between two stadiums (which wasn't seriously considered), but I liked what we ended up with better until this April.

Here is where I see the communication breakdown. You are trying to compare the defense of guys who have been through the culling process. Is defense at the catcher position important? Obviously,...

Something doesn't add up with that. If that were true, then it would cost $640M just to finish .500. ($8M x 81). I also don't think there is a true linear cost for wins, even if you have an...

They aren't real double-headers if you have to leave the stadium and pay again. Then again, the whole concept of double-headers has been ruined for me by the two that I have been to:
July 27, 1978...
I think it's happening again.

Too bad. Confidence can be fixed with a couple of base hits. Inability to make contact it a bit tougher and is frequently incurable.
