Barreiro apparently isn't too fond of the Twins offseason accomplishments. He basically said the Twins announce their new food offerings to get everybody excited and to forget about their lack of action during the offseason.

i agree...the food and beer changes are way better than the player changes.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

At least they didn't try Duensing at SP. I seem to remember Barreiro vowing to ban Twins talk for a month if Duensing was in the rotation.

I need to know Reusse's take on this, before forming my own opinion.

One thing I just realized is missing - poutine. How tough can it be to make a decent poutine?

Because JOHN, no one in America likes POUTINE that garbage in their mouths.

On a serious note, I was disappointed that the Twins chose to make Papa John their only pizza supplier in the stadium. With so many good local option -- such as Pizza Luce just outside the stadium -- it would have been nice to have one or more of those 'zas available.

Papa John's is exclusive? Um, um, I agree with Parker on that decision.

Good poutine would be amazing. Especially in the cold month of April.

Also, I'm not really a pizza eater anymore, but Papa John's is pretty bad. I agree with the idea of providing some of the good local options, like they did with the beer. The only issue that I can see is the method of cooking. The best pizza in a roughly 194,000,000 square mile radius of Minneapolis (Punch, duh) would require a wood-burning oven, and that's not going into Target Field. Far easier to truck in a bunch of frozen plastic discs and microwave them. Gross. But easy.

Good thing I don't eat pizza at baseball games! They still have the best stuff (Tony O's and Krama.....whatever the name of the guys with meat in their kraut on their awesome brats)

So, does anyone have a top-five list for Target Center food? I would put Kramarczuk's at the top of my limited personal list, along with Fulton's "Sweet Child..." brew. The Murray's Steak Sandwich was underwhelming. Other favorites?

Gotta try Tony O's Cuban. The state fair Turkey Leg was pretty good too.

I good with anything Kramarczuk's. I was surprised they brought in Sheboygan to compete. I'm not sure I can get myself to try the new guys.

Suddenly the prospect of a 30 degree opening day doesn't bother me as much...I mean, as long as there are multiple forms of mac & cheese, and various combinations of meat & bread how bad could it be?

(Though now that I'm thinking of Poutine I may need a mini protest of sorts...we could use it to pay the Canadian players!)

So, not knowing what poutine was, I had to Google it. Yuck! I hope I am not offending our Canadian friends.
