Tough error for Trevor. Probably makes up for a few "hits".

Fantastic. Based on what I saw yesterday, I have the Gophs in the National Title game, but I'm not yet prepared to say how much they'll beat Alabama by. I need to see them play Western Illinois before I'll go out on a limb.


As much as I like the Gophers, I see the heat may have got to you......either that or senility.

I know, right?

Actually, I considered not taking the job. I'm reluctant to join any group that would accept me as a member.

Did you pass that line to Groucho in the '30s?

I am on a personal mission to lengthen this game thread. Is Brian Dozier the Twins MVP if Mauer doesn't return this year?

BTW, I hope Dozier gets some RBI and overtakes Morneau for the team lead. Not sure if that will happen.

Thank you sir, but you are making multiple assumptions here, sans any evidence, I'm afraid.

Just curious ... was there a need for more mods, or replacing someone who is no longer interested in it? (I have no idea who all are mods anyway. It wouldn't really matter if I did, though, I'd still be my misbehavin' self.)

Does anyone want to see Clete Thomas play for the Twins in 2014? Doug Bernier? Wilkin Ramirez?

I always wanted to be Peggy Lipton. I thought that was a cool job.

The site owners felt there was a need for more moderation. Specifically, in the game threads. More specifically, more moderation of the female posters who habitually hang out in game threads. There was a thought that the current staff couldn't handle the workload those poster(s) generated.

Almost put 'Dave's man crush' in the lineup and then though, eh, some may not get that.

After watching the stuff that Albers is succeeding with, there has to be a very fine line between success and failure in major league baseball.

How are they so unbearable? I mean ... they can't be worse than New York or Boston fans (of any sport).
