Still making a valuable contribution to society in your retirement years, well done sir.

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

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


Gotta be, only other guy even worth mentioning would be Perk.

You're right,valuable and being a member of society are broad assumptions.

I know, right?

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


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?

Omit the "the", though.

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).
