    I know... And that's exactly what I want. Is it too much to ask?

    That's a bit much to ask because the Twins already had one of those guys come up from the farm eight years ago.

    I also find it odd how unwilling teams are to trade A level guys for the more certain current MLB player. Teams in the NFL do not like to trade draft picks for known commodities either. Malcolm Gladwell wrote an article about this bias a few years ago, it is in the interwebs someplace, if you are interested.

    I know... That's why I want another one. Watching Trout run around the bases for the Angels just wants me want another one more.

    It's been Awhile... The Twins need someone to come up and blow the doors off. This organization needs it. At least I need it. It's like someone closed down my baseball crack house.

    Pig... I know exactly what you are saying about 8 years ago... I remember the feeling... Watching every moment when he was in the game... The Future was here... The Real Deal J.D. Durbin coming up in 2004 was an exciting time.

    Heh.

    I think there's a chance we'll see that guy next year in Arcia. I think the kid is going to blow up over the next eight months. He'll force the front office's hand sooner rather than later.

    Fingers Crossed... Head bowed to the Sky... His production is looking fantastic thus far. The Twins will wait out a couple of months to delay the Arb Clock... and I will be waiting his presence on the Twins lineup card.

    I hope he keeps knocking it around until that moment because I'm starting to get jazzed.

    lol... I love Autocorrect... The Consequences of it are something this world needed.

    My Mother In Law texted me asking how my Anniversary Date with my wife went.

    I replied... We had a nice Dinner and she said that I never show affection in Public so I had no choice but to "kill" her in the middle of the restaurant in front of everybody.

    When the Police arrived... I had to call for my wife to come home and show that she is indeed alive. She had to produce ID for them.

    you'd have thought the "in front of everybody" comment would have tipped her off to the mistake, but oh well...

    So that'll make Thanksgiving dinner awkward ...

    The First Text That Day from my mother in law was... "What do you have planned for your anniversary?"

    I Meant to text "I'm taking her out... Someplace nice".

    "Taking" got changed to "Eating".

    She didn't respond back to that.

    My Favorite was the Taco Shells exchange... My Mother in Law was going to make Taco's for my Family. She was at the store and texted me "give me a count on how many taco shells are left".

    I texted back... Just one... That is your Count"

    The Autocorrect changed the word "count"

    Yes... I've made the wise move and stopped texting my Mother-in-Law going forward.

    Latin players always go to to the DWL or VWL and American (CA and sometimes AU as well) players go to the AFL. edit - American players also go to the Latin American leagues.

    So Arcia isn't bound for the AFL either.

    I thought they were thinking about changing the winter leagues.

    Have you heard anything other than getting out of Venezuela because of the security concerns?

    No, I just remember the grumblings about the dissatisfaction with the winter leagues last year. Maybe it was just about Venezuela, but I thought the DWL wasn't a serious league and the Twins weren't high on it.
