Hey Van, I have a quick one for ya.'

2017 Minnesota Twins: best team in MLB this year or greatest team in MLB this year?

I'd offer you some Minnesota Moonshine, but it appears as though you've already had plenty.

 

What do you mean "this year"?  What about all time?  Such negativity.

We're shocked that Brock and the moderators let us continue this show...

 

Some decisions are beyond moderator control, so ... who's pocket are you in anyway? I smell a scandal, but it's likely you won't investigate yourself and will only deflect to the moderators ... again.

The far more important question is whether or not he's had contact with the Russians?

Eeeek ... didn't mean for my post to reflect anything that might be happening in current affairs. Was referencing van's investigative reporting on ModeratorGate. And absolutely nothing else.

 

The similarities were purely coincidental.

 

 

And if you can't see, I'm wearing a halo of innocence as I typed that.

Hey Van! Glad you're back and on the air ethernet. Anyway, I notice our crack mod, ChiTownTwinsFan is wearing a halo of innocence when it comes to whether or not her remark had anything to do with current events.

 

Considering ChiTown is in Chicago, home of the Daley's, is it really plausible she's not aware of the political implication of her remarks?

 

And, what is it with Santana? By all  accounts, he should be asking if "you want fries with that" yet he lingers with the Twins. Why?

I think the new whine line thread needs to get its feet on the ground a bit before you throw out something like this.

I think the easy answer to this is that he can do many things in the kitchen; flip burgers, man the fryer, take orders, work a drive-thru, etc but does them all about a nearly worst in the biz level.

So Van...tough question for you early in the show. Who's going to cover more of the outfield at Target Field this season?  Byron Buxton or Billy Joel?

 

This is a true toss-up question! Our hard-core analytics person (the Intern) says it's going to be Buxton.... But we only believe in HAWT taeks here.... So Billy Joel it is!

people are saying that everything in the gift shop at the scorching hot lounge is made in china. any truth to the rumor?

 

Mickey! Welcome back to the show! These rumors are ALTERNATIVE facts... All of our merchandise is made personally by North. We need to give our friendly neighbors in Canada a bone every once in a while!

Follow up question; who has more #1 hits?  Buxton batting leadoff or Billy Joel's catalog?

Dinger, you can't even HANDLE how good the Twins are going to be this year! Are you a BELIEVER? If you're not, get out of our SCORCHING HOT Lounge.

I would be happy to provide my tax returns, but I'm currently being audited.... Soooo.... 

How about those Twins?!

 

EDIT: Any past scandals should be blamed on snepp!

Joe Mauer.

 

Woah.... This is a HAWT taek where I needed to grab oven mitts before typing. Joe Mauer is a male, who used to be a catcher, and now wears sunglasses. That's all the info we have so far!
