More Perkins fun.

There are 154 relievers in the league with 25+ innings pitched.

His 1.87 FIP and 2.21 xFIP both rank 5th.

Good for Perk. He deserves it, and it's about time the Twins had more than one representative.

Much respect to the Stillwater Ponies. My wife and Glen Perkins Alma Mater.

Congrats Glen. You earned this one!

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

That was a cool move by Jim Leyland to add Glen Perkins to the All-Star Roster.
Or wait... does he just want to scout Perkins so he can trade for him?

I really can't say there were any Twins that were snubbed this year. Both well-picked players and two gems on a poor team.

Yeah, like the Twins would trade him to a division rival, let alone some team in the AL.

Both deserved it.
Not for trading Perk at all. Build your pen around him.

Congrats to these guys. Great seasons and they deserve it.
Do or do not. There is no try.
