I stumbled into twinsonion.com by accident.

 

Should be some interesting game thread intros coming from this.

He could offer Evenson five of the Upper Deck Kent Hrbek 2013 Goodwin Champions series cards which would cost less than the price of one Bryce Harper. Hrbek isn't even wearing a tacky baseball uniform (suit and tie). If he still doesn't bite, Falvey could throw in an official Kent Hrbek Rapala fishing lure... now that would show some hometown spirit. Not too bad, eh?

This read to me like an Onion article.

I could come up with a 100 Upper Deck 1991 Scott Erickson rookie cards for him.

Wait, is he from Eden Prairie, or White Bear Lake? Or is he a huge WBL fan who lives in EP?

Wouldn't be me without a dumb typo in my first post. Fixed, thanks!

Just for a point of clarification in case a few of you missed it ... the tag line on this article reads:

 

"Twins Daily is THRILLED to welcome Randball Stu as a weekly satirical contributor."

 

Welcome, Stu!

FWIW, article tag lines are not visible in the forum view.

 

Although I think the satire is obvious enough that it shouldn't require the tag!

Yes ... I'm aware. Which is why I clarified ... and added it to this article. But I see now it was removed. It's a weird thing the way articles and article threads are and aren't linked. The comments are linked, but sometimes the content or format doesn't transfer when the article thread is generated. And any tweak I put into the article thread goes away when the original article gets edited. So ... I'll add it ... again ... to help keep up the clarification. (Or perhaps one of the admins could put that line into the body of the article so that it transfers. Not that it's really needed, but, obviously for a few it is.)

 

And I agree it's somewhat obvious ... because it's too ... 'What. The. Heck????'

Little Jake needs to have a 1909 Honus Wagner and the 1952 Mickey Mantle cards in place before he splurges on the Harper.

Personally I’m disappointed. There’s enough cynicism, sarcasm, and negativity on this site from posters without making this type of writing a feature.

Not a BYTO veteran I would guess.

I hope Harper is sitting on the sidelines during ST and is forced to sign a contract significantly less than what Washington offered him

Apparently Stu's severance package from SBN has run out already.Should've hired Falvey to manage his money.

 

But I'm glad.It's almost as good as if I somehow found that Tatooeine Luke Skywalker action figure I lost in 1980.Not sure how it would've ever gotten behind the furnace in the first place, but looking there was one of the scariest things I've ever done.

why? Because owners should keep the money?
