Did you guys anticipate this level of success when you created TD?

Maybe eventually, but nothing like this, and not this fast.

This site is the best thing ever! I update it about 50 times throughout the day to read forums and updated entries. You guys do an incredible job and it keeps my inner baseball nerd in check. Keep up the great work! You guys deserve some great respect from the Twins community

I think the Twins have some of the best Bloggers in all of sports.

A big huge congrats....... and also a thank you to the whole team that made it and makes it happen. Do you have a way to tell how many actual users are using the site each month? Just curious. I would be interesting to know, too. (Smcginnity, no matter how many times he makes a hit during the month ..... he would only count as one user.)

As much as I'd love to make an elitist snarky post... I just can't bring myself to do it. You all much be pretty proud of your product and rightfully so. I mean, there is no question that my contribution is a large part of the success, but we'll just dismiss that right now and focus on TD.

Congratulations! But not only for the 1,000,000 but for the reason behind it. If you want to know anything about any Twin or twin prospect, no matter where he plays, this is the site. Also, each of you bring something different and complementary to each other. Different opinions, different angles, different info. I cannot help but highlight 2 aspects that I always follow (by no means this is putting down the rest of the site, but these are my favorites): Minor league reports, and Parker Hageman articles

It took close to a year to finally get me to post a comment. I have never before felt like I had something worthwhile to add, but I can't help it. Like the many commenters I've read who've made this same post, I will probably start posting a ton. Kudos! Well deserved.

I only have time to visit once a day (exceptions made on the day my adopt-a-prospect Brett Lee pitches)--but I love this site--spend lots of time here--even though 1200 miles from Target Field--this site makes me feel I am there with all the Twins news I can ever want.

So congrats on the million mark--may 10 million come soon...

> I don't pretend to know everyone's motivations for visiting Twins Daily

I'll offer that for me, it's because I know where to come when news about the team is happening, and because of the sense of community. And not necessarily in that order.
