Arby's needs a new ad agency.

Bo Dietl was bad enough... Munchatation Situation for a punch line. And now... The joke is the adult male voice on a grandma and child.

So far, for the Oakland series, the Twins have more 1-2-3 innings than total baserunners.

I would be willing to trade Buxton and Sano to the As for 5 years of Billy Beane and his most trusted staff and scouts.

Yes, to get a higher draft slot.

What really annoys me is they keep switching strategies. Big A in logo, small a in logo. Three different slogans in a year. Pick something and try to develop it. Sheesh.

I don't know about the scouts but Billy Beane hit about .220 for the Twins... Plus you got to factor in... He's much older now.

But the question is, is he tall enough to play small forward...

They keep changing focus groups which is like changing small sample sizes.

I may be totally wrong, but it seems to me that the As do a much better job developing players, especially pitchers, and that Beane is a very savvy trader.
