One additional note, two game dates are available this weekend. They are 8/24 and 8/25. Please message me or post on this thread if you can help out. Thanks!

 

I'll try my hand at the thread intro on 8/25 if y'all will let a rook take a shot at it.

Sounds good! Everyone is new once.

And if we're really good, we remain rookies forever.

We laugh at gypsies, fortune tellers, and horoscopes, yet we trust baseball prospect lists.

It's this Attention To Detail that separates Twins Daily from all other sites on teh intarwebs. Quality processes lead to a quality experience!

I missed that class. I also missed the makeup class and the remedial class.

Just checking in about the post season plans.

Can i hang up my game thread cleats, and sit down and start rubbing the gunk out from between my toes?

Metaphorically speaking of course. I know the only real game thread footwear are...

Floevogs*

(fix spelling and add ad link if you feel like it)

Or do i gotta keep limber cause who knows when Mr. Bell might put me in to protect a game thread lead? Besides the shadow of course.

The last three games of the regular season are spoken for, so I will archive this thread at the close of the regular season. Thanks to all who signed up and contributed. We got the variety of perspectives that we were looking for and some really good content. 

 

It has been a fun ride this season and it's not over! There will be game threads for the playoff games linked to previews of each playoff game. I sent messages to all who introduced a game thread in the regular season and you all will be considered for introducing a playoff game thread in order by the number of introductions done this season. If I missed someone, please send me a message and I'll fill you in on the postseason assignment process and the couple of tweaks that go with the postseason.

 

Thanks again to all who have contributed in the game threads. Go Twins!
