Glen is a very bright guy with a great head on his shoulders. I am not surprised by his ability to digest this type of information and use it to his advantage. My older brother played with Glen from 8th grade through High School in a winter Dome league at the old Rice street dome, and even back then you could tell he was going to go far in baseball.

Wait didn't Slowey get the Glen Perkins treatment?
The difference of course being Perkins nutted up and became a very nice asset to the team in the pen, while Slowey sulked, got traded, and showed the Twins there massive mistake by immediately getting let go by the Rockies and sent to AAA by the Indians were he has posted a robust 5.14 ERA!

If the front office knew how to use the internet, Perkins would be on the first flight back to Rochester after reading this nonsense.

I always find it amusing when people get their undies in a bunch after a player mentions an advanced stat. And to top it off, it is then used as an excuse to bludgeon the Twins front office some more.

Bill Smith promised the Staff that the Web TV will be fixed by next Tuesday.

Interesting article. Perkins seems to spend a lot of time on the internet. I wonder if he ever reads Twins Daily.

You'd be surprised at how many players read forums. I'd be willing to bet he knows of Twins Daily, and might be an occasional lurker.

Its funny to read some of the comments here again after reading Ryan's fangraphs interview and to learn what he truly thinks about statistical analysis.
