    Incorrect. Everyone knows Baffin Island was discovered by Mr.Canoehead.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    I thought Northern Tip was in honor of the weird haircut that Baffin had?

    Chapter 6 is clear that you NEVER use all your catchers at one time. The Doomsday Scenarios (part 4 chapter 6) are endless.

    Unfortunately, Chapter 5 had already hammered home the part about using 3 outfielders, so that took precedence.

    I've been a Twins fan for 30 years now and this is the worst lineup I can remember.

    I remember a few, featuring guys like Pete Mackanin and Rick Sofield, but not for a long time. This is pretty brutal. Hernandez gets some credit, but most pitchers would be feasting on this.

    We have a little "pick the stick" group. Apparently tonight's big winner will be whoever can avoid going in the hole.

    From August 17, 1999, a 9-3 loss against the Orioles in the midst of a 97 loss season:

    Dan Perkins was the starter and finished the game with a 7.17 ERA.



    The Orioles Jason Johnson, with a 6.47 ERA, tamed the Twins bats over 7 IP, giving up 3 earned runs.

    Upon further reflection, tongiht's lineup is definitely worse.

    And when Morneau is traded to the Pirates and Doumit is traded to the Yankees. Dozier can slot into the cleanup spot.

    I'd send a text to King Felix asking for cooperation.

    The lineup to which David Wells threw a perfect game was a dandy.
