It was hit right at him. Decent arm though.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

The best trade of a player the MN Twins Made that never really benefited them.

Ahh... the good old days, when drinking Miller High Life, Ice Fishing, and eating Double Bacon Cheeseburgers was a ballplayer's off season workout regimen.

Somehow it seems fitting to have Kent Hrbek day on a day when a lot of beer is consumed .... maybe his mama is Irish?

Not many players have worn this number. Must be considered unlucky, or something.

It can still be the days of a fan's workout regimen.

So you are rounding into shape for the season, even as we speak, Chief?
