He's not invited.


Did anyone else get a non-invitation?

Mine came in the mail last week.

I didn't know Hallmark made them.

I have had an awful day. Thanks for #5. It helped. I will read #1-4 later.


Glunn my friend... You gotta stop having awful days. You deserve good ones with puppies and dancing girls.

Can someone erase this post. It's like I took a hit of Nitrous and blurted out the first thing that came to my mind, although that is not what happened. I don't know what happened?


Nope... It needs to stay.

Here's why: Its the first time in the history of Twinsdaily that those combination of words have been used in a single sentence.

Is it just me, or have the Twins been reluctant to steal this year? I think they are going to struggle to score runs the rest of the year, but in Dozier, Santana, Nunez, Fuld, and Escobar they have decent to excellent speed......

The Twins now have 50 SB on the season, right about at league average.

I'm going to need some independent verification of that. That sounds like something likely to have been said by several posters that come to mind, including at least 1 owner and a couple mods.

Underrated good move by the Twins: keeping Arcia exclusively in right. He looks more comfortable there and he's got a really good arm.

If by "comfortable" you mean "crawling on all fours across a bed of broken glass, Die Hard style" then I concur 100%

I'll leave that up to the geniuses. I am busy counting my marbles.


Hope you can check back in for 2015 spring training...

... because of high marble count, not low counting rate, it should go without saying.

I know it wasn't his day to pitch, but I wish the Twins would have thrown Kris Johnson tonight. The M's look vulnerable to left handed pitching.

Arcia has been the biggest disappointment of the year to this point, IMO. Really hoped for more, both on offense and defense.

edit: he does have a good arm though

I would too. He's younger than Plouffe, Florimon, and Dozier. More importantly, he can hit a little bit. I'd put him at SS, at least til this supposed lousy defender shows himself.

I agree. He has tremendous potential, but I question his make-up.....
