We are going down the last week of February, so I am hoping action has started by then. I think it should...

The ST schedule is out.

I did this once about 2-3 years ago, but it was during the offseason and well, it's been a long time ago... Let's get to know each other a little bit... Who are the Twins Daily readers and contributors. Obviously don't tell any more than you want to... here are some questions to consider answering, with my answers:

 

1.) Where are you from? I'm from Perham, MN, home of the Yellowjackets. Currently live in Warroad, MN, Hockeytown USA... Been here for 21 years, and don't feel like you need to get any more specific than you'd like.

2.) Age Range? (I'm in my 40s, lower half, easily.)

3.) What brought you to Twins Daily? (I was at SethSpeaks.net, and me and the rest of the TD guys consolidated to create this fun-filled place)

4.) Highest level of baseball/softball played? (two years at college, Concordia in Moorhead)

5.) Favorite Twins Player, and favorite underappreciated Twins player, and if you want, favorite current Twins player? (I mean, Kirby Puckett, of course... Underrated... Matt Lawton... and current, well, probably most enjoy watching Eddie Rosario though having had the opportunity to meet so many of the players, there are a lot of very good people in the organization.)

6.) Favorite non-Twins Daily site/authors?

7.) Favorite Twitter follows?

8.) Other interests outside of baseball. 

9.) Favorite part of Twins Daily... forums, blogs, articles, topics... wahtever you like.

10.) Tell us what we can do better. What features or other topics would you like to see in-season or out of season?

11.) Have you been to any of the Twins Daily "events?"

Born in Bismarck, ND and have lived here almost my entire life. Love the cool climate as I really do not like the heat. I am 36 years old. Do not remember how I came across Twins Daily for the first time. I think it was around the time the Twins site took their message board down. I played baseball into my mid teens. I loved the hot corner at third. Loved to swing that bat and was a decent fielder, too! Favorite player was obviously number 34: Kirby Puckett! Got to see him play at the Dome in 1993 against our bitter rival in those days: the Oakland A's when I was 10 years old! Most underrated Twins player would be Shane Mack. The Mack Attack was a great hitter for a few years there. Favorite current player would probably be Luis Arraez. He will be a great one, I believe!

Thank you for the kind welcome, everyone - this looks like a great landing place after 18 years at "Twins Territory" (now "247 Sports").I was a moderator over there, but they unceremoniously removed the Twins message board, leaving a few dedicated members wondering 'wtf?'.

 

I'd like you to welcome "insagt" who I've encouraged to join here, as it looks like a passionate and good group of people. 

 

About me: 

 


1.) Where are you from? I'm from Bloomington (Minnesota), not too far from the old Met, where I enjoyed many, many games as a child.

2.) Age Range?Well, the above should give you a hint (not that it matters).

3.) What brought you to Twins Daily? (As indicated above, out of necessity, as our board was removed). 

4.) Highest level of baseball/softball played? (I've played two years JuCo and played for many years in an adult baseball league). 

5.) Favorite Twins Player, and favorite underappreciated Twins player, and if you want, favorite current Twins player? (I have a son named "Kirby" which should tell you something.I have a daughter named "Molly" which should also indicate another favorite.Two cats:One named "Jack" and the other "Morris".My fav pitcher was Blyleven and Tony Oliva was my favorite player in the 70's.MOST UNDERRATED PLAYER AND STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITES:Eduardo Escobar...

 

That's all for now, but thanks again for the warm reception!
