    This kind of makes my case for me.

    I like the alliteration, though.

    OK, but while you're completely veering past the point while clumsily employing Argumentis Extremis, why don't you go first?, TR can go second- as he probably already knows the team that drafts him in the Rule 5...., and then, someone with "clearly" more "Baseball Intelligence" can give it a shot.

    Last year, the Twins took Slama off the 40 man roster. No one claimed him. he was also eligible for the Rule 5 draft. he went undrafted. He tops out at 88 mph. Those aren't the types that get taken. He'll come to spring training with the Twins next year and we'll see what happens.

    He had elbow problems around this time last year. With a clean bill of health, it's going to be a different story.

    Haha, this is what is come too. You know you're in loserville USA when the conversation on how a AAA reliever, who has never been looked at as a prospect, who is tearing up AAA at age 50, is the topic of the town.

    *The vikings season is already over.
    *The Gophers mind as well commit mass suicide as to evade total embarrassment.
    *The T-Wolves are...the T-Wolves.
    *The Wild are in full on NHL lockout mode after spending eleventy billion dollars this offseason.
    *The Lynx still are playing while wearing clothes, call when they aren't.
    *Gophers hockey still isn't Souix Hockey

    *And the Minnesota freakin' Twins have resorted to mass conversation about ANTHONY, 39th round pick, SLAMA. God has smiled upon us with the great gift of Slama, and we hath turned our backeth on him by not giving him a shot at 7 innings of middle relief work...oh the humanity.
