I know some of you may have scuffled with them a bit but the reason you're still here - and the reason Twins Daily exists, period - is because the moderators have held a steady hand this entire season.

 

While it's easy to take one of their decisions personally - trust me, as an owner, I've been chastised by them myself - realize that there is a reason that literally every other baseball forum you've been around has either been:

 

1) A hot mess

 

2) No longer exists

 

3) Probably both 1 & 2

 

The reason we're still here is because of the moderator crew, full stop.

 

And it's high time we applaud them for once instead of ridiculing them.

 

So here's to the moderator crew, we should thank them all: 

 

Ashbury

Carole Keller (SQUIRREL)

glunn

nicksaviking

Riverbrian

diehardtwinsfan

twinsnorth49

Sconnie

USAFChief

snepp

SwainZag

Hosken Bombo Disco

stringer bell

 

After this season, I think it's high time we take a moment and give them all thanks for the work they've done to make this site happen.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a skunkweed will always be a skunkweed and instantly recognizable.

The main baseball forum for the Cardinals is inundated by trolls since it is mostly not moderated.

It has fewer and fewer posters. Here a moderated baseball forum one was hoping to have at least a few hundred regulars posting. The same is happening with Facebook's baseball groups.

If it doesn't involve Fantasy or gambling maybe the number of baseball zealots is less than thought.

Is there a daily on-line sports chat in Minnesota like we have in St. Louis? For 3 or 4 hours Monday-Friday the local paper has its sports writers take questions that they select from readers on-line, mostly the Cardinals, Blues and college sports.

Our Blues GM actually follows the questions though you won't really know if he is on that day.

It's going on now. It starts at 11 a.m. some days and 1 p.m. other days.

You have 4 pro sports teams plus college.

But... aren't we thanking them now?

Big difference between mostly thankless and all thankless...

Something about loose change, i think.
