  1. Knock on wood. Perhaps with your head.

    Booo! We don't need this kind of jinxing! Boooooooo! Hisssss!

    ;)
  2. The Twins and Ryan aren't interested in signing...

    The Twins and Ryan aren't interested in signing 3-5 year deals with pitchers because (IMO) (a) though they have money now, they want to make sure they have the funds to sign guys like Buxton, Sano,...
  3. I think we should wait to see what roles these...

    I think we should wait to see what roles these guys play before getting mad. If Fryer is just a third catcher in case of injuries and Martis is only on the squad to eat innings in case of a 18-2...
  4. Wilkin

    This is minor but it seems odd to me that they have Wilkin down in the GCL for a rehab start. He's recovering from a concussion but you put him in a league of young guys with lots of power but little...

    Excellent defensively

    Can we finally be done with the misguided notion that Drew Butera is an excellent defensive catcher? Seth is a really smart guy who repeatedly says this as fact when all of the empirical evidence...

    If Morneau had yanked a single to right on it, no one would be complaining. Baseball is a sport where failing 2/3 of the time makes you a great player. Lighten up sasquatches. :-)
  7. This is pretty strong language from someone who...

    This is pretty strong language from someone who wouldn't get the bat off their shoulder on that pitch. You're acting like before they swing every time, MLB players know exactly where the pitch is...

    Ummm, Google Translate says that El Pupo means "Longfin". Not sure why that isn't included.
  9. Hrm . . . .

    I realize that it's a pop culture reference to a song but I find it humorous that on the day Twins Daily emphasizes its comment policy about refraining from insulting other members, the lead...
  10. Yeah, you defiitely shouldn't use that word.

    Yeah, you defiitely shouldn't use that word.
  11. Well this is where the author's criticism of not...

    Well this is where the author's criticism of not taking into account who is up (and up after that) comes into play. Though Joe Mauer doesn't hit a lot of homeruns, I think most Twins fans would love...

    Double bleh. A bleh in their faces.

    Neither OBP or Batting Average take into consideration the number of bases the player earned. OBP just says how many times a person gets on base, with a triple counting the same as a single. Same...

    This article would be helped by (A) breaking down how switch hitters did as righties and as lefties (B) taking OBP into consideration and (C) taking plate appearances into consideration. Chili Davis...

    Agreed. Using statistics arbitrarily and without context is a favorite tactic of many fellow purveyors of this site who like to rant. Well done sir, well done.

    Also, pitchers expect to keep...

    Though this is all very interesting, perhaps you shouldn't quit your day job.

    Hicks didn't suddenly change his batting habits when he went to the majors. He didn't change his swing or start...
  17. Naysaying

    Not to be a naysayer but if you leave a guy in AAA all year you still don't know who he is long-term until he faces major league pitching. You also can have a guy struggle in the majors the entire...
  18. Proof

    I don't think that this is what the original guy was saying but that stat doesn't endorse the fact that a player is hurt by moving back and forth between AAA and the majors. The player could've...

    Faulty Logic

    There's a clear logical fallacy to your point here. Having fewer strikeouts and walks does not mean that the Twins will have more home runs or even are any more likely to give up home runs. Those...

    hrm

    You realize that when you say "in pinstripes" everyone thinks you're referring to the Yankees right?
  21. No

    But that's the thing, it wouldn't be that game deciding it. What decided it was the hundreds of games played earlier. Just because it's the last game doesn't mean that that game decides it. No...

    you're wrong

    Since September 2010 the Twins have been the 2nd worst team in the AL. The Mariners are 112 and 167 for a .401 winning clip and the Twins are 117 and 159 for a .423 clip. You may call that...

    This has been proven to be false. He burned himself while ironing but wasn't wearing the shirt.

    Tough my cousin did do that. Amazing moment in family history.

    Japan

    I was Backpacking by myself in japan in 2008. If you haven't been to japan, it can be a very isolating place to be alone. No one talks to you in public, no one even overtly looks at other people....

    Doesn't mean it hasn't been covered a million times by Twins bloggers on this site and elsewhere. Nothing new is there - we get it, you all disagree. Stop beating the dead horse.
