I should think no. I think the Target field aura got into Kubel's head and became psycho-somatic (I think this goes for other current players as well), so it doesn't surprise me that new guys who haven't been inundated with the aura of 'vast expanses' of TF don't let it affect them. Regardless, I will opine that unless you are a pull-hitting power lefty, the park is easier on righties.


I 100% agree with your Kubel theory and the fact that it has psychologically messed with the heads of a few other Twins in the power category. Willingham and Plouffe have been a delight to say the least!

Well happy birthday my friend! June 15th... cool! A former Acquaintance of mine once told me "I am a Gemini. You will never get to know us." I always thought that was humorous.

I am not sure what website it is, but it was giving the Twins a 0.0% chance of making the playoffs. Of course, with their recent resurgence, this number probably isn't right.


Yeah, there's no way that's correct. A 0.0% chance would mean that even if the Twins won the rest of their games and teams ahead of them lost the rest of their games, they still wouldn't make the playoffs. As it stands now, the Twins are only 8.5 games out of first with 102 games remaining....far from impossible.

Time to build for the playoffs. Trade Liriano Blackburn and Valencia for an above average starter.


Why be stingy? Throw in Nishioka and acquire yourself an ace.

I love those ideas, especially "St. Plouffe."
