Number 4. Always number 4.


Id also like to point out that "AsburyJohn's" initials are "AJ." Coincidence? You be the judge.

Yeah... That's a good question.

Do you have an answer for that Nick?

Here are 10... Go ahead and pick one.

10. The mask was put on by Sam Deduno and all his control issues.
9. There is a 3 year old child in front of him and its a game of peek-a-boo
8. The mask comes with an ice pack and he has a toothache.
7. Pinto has pledged to wear his mask this way in protest of the like button disappearing from Twins Daily.
6. Mask and headgear was broken because of rough handling by UPS.
5. He was a victim of Incognito hazing.
4. It's AshburyJohns Fault.
3. Fans down the third base line were throwing beer bottles.
2. Nick Nelson asked for the pose as part of his new modern photo Art exhibition titled "Over Under Sideways Down".
1. The index finger on his right hand is his primary for nose picking. He just needs a place to flick.

I want to replace #3... Throwing beer bottles was meh... I thought of something better.

3. Right Eye Wink... Is the indicator.

Its not as good as #4 but an improvement over the original #3.

I heard they just released version 2 of healthcare.gov on 14 floppy disks. So congratulations on your achievement.

Just wondering, but is it a foregone conclusion that Ryan Doumit is outta here? It didn't seem like it was that long ago when he signed the extension. But signing a catcher doesn't really make sense with Doumit, Pinto, and Herrmann on the roster. I'd rather not see him here, because he'd probably take up the DH spot, which Willingham should play...

AJ is a plus Crash Davis, face it! Piss & vinegar. Rose goes on the front.

Of course Mauer is going to be dipping in behind the dish as much as possible because he'll miss it, so input from him won't be an issue. AJ bats L, compliments Pinto, and can't stop talking. Question is culture.

The Molina conjecture is a good one- w/no bat and age an issue, he should stand to be a cheap signing for a short-term deal. No risk. Twins do not have the most diverse clubhouse in MLB, and all coaching spots seem to be filled by native, monolingual English-speakers. Yet scouting has traditionally been focused on the Caribbean!

Get him in the org on the cusp of retirement, then keep him on as a coach somehow/ somewhere. This is how you develop depth & maturity at a position.
