    I was thinking more along the lines of Schroedinger's Cat. If the cat's alive to read the box scores in the morning paper, we find out whether Santana's a SS or not. If the cat's dead, there's just no knowing.

    Morneau, despite his hot start, is actually dragging the team down in this regard --only a .987 OPS at Coors! (Still a respectable .879 on the road so far, though -- which is basically his career mark pre-concussion...)

    I might buy a lottery ticket based on all of this.....I think the Twins are actually part of an international spy ring, or aliens are controlling them to send us messages. What could the code base be that relies on the numbers 8, 3, 3, and 1?

    I don't really know how to interpret this one...there's a little bit of good but probably more bad in this anomaly. Only one A.L. batter hitting over .260 has a higher OBP than slugging percentage, and it's Joe Mauer.

    On the morning of May 18th, Brian Dozier is tied for 3rd in the AL with 11 home runs.

    He's tied with David Ortiz and Jose Bautista, btw.

    My fun fact: This is the latest in a season the Twins have been over .500 since....the last time they were over .500 later in the season.

    (DId I do it right?)

    So offense aside, how is the trade situation shaping up? Recent Mauer glove gaffes aside...

    Hah, here's a good one.

    Aaron Hicks' OPS+ of 74 is higher than Denard Span at 71 and Ben Revere at 61.

    On the Hicks vs Span vs Revere front, Hicks Bbref dWAR (-0.4) is sandwiched between Revere (-0.5) and Span (-0.3).

    There are currently 9 Twins with 100 or more PAs. Joe Mauer has a higher OPS than 3of them: Hicks, Kubel, and the now departed Colabello.
