After reading Rosterman's articles about where they are now players, I was inspired to create this article about the minors and some of it's history. I think this stuff is pretty fascinating and at times I geek out about learning about it. Would I have shamelessly "re-appropriated" much of this material from elsewhere if the league wasn't in a self-induced coma? Possibly not, but either way I still love to share things I find out and learn about the greatest game on the face of the earth.
The Other Guys on the Team:
I am seriously getting irked and bored with the inflated views that Byron Buxton is the All Universe Player that will propel the Twins up. Oh, let's not forget his batting average is in free fall and though it will absolutely rise, he is not the news or star of the Twins.
We field a team of seemingly invisible players. Polanco, Urshela, Arraez, Garlick, Gordon, Ryan etc., etc., etc.
These are the guys that are winning the games for the Twins. These are the guys that make paltry salaries compared to our AUP. These are the guys that grind it out almost daily, until Professor Baldelli decides to make his frequent moves.
So this is my small little tribute to the real stars of the Twins 2022. The guys that really make this team special. GO TWINS!
Wow.....glad to see the Twins win last night. But, I must admit that when Perez comes in I forget all about how much our manager bothers me and wonder when Perez will stop giving me the shivers!
He needs to read one of those books on how to simplify things.
