I went off on a tangent in mikelink45’s extremely well written and thought provoking post “When Baseball was King”. But started thinking about why baseball isn’t king. In my mind a significant shift happened in the late 70s and early 80s. The sport that I think was a major contributor was the NFL and not just that the NFL broadcasted it’s games to wide regional audiences scheduled to minimize overlap and put premium matchups in prime time, there was one man…

It’s Thanksgiving week and in that spirit, I’d like to ask our community, “What are you thankful for?”
I’m thankful for all of you, our Twins Daily community. You give me so much food for thought. You give me an outlet to discuss my passions, my fears, my skepticism. Our community makes Twins fandom great, and I haven’t found another one like it.
I’m thankful for our moderation and community leadership team, we get to work together to help make this site as conducive t
Have we received any updates on the 60-day IL guys? I understand the expectation is for Sano to be back sometime around the 60-day mark and that Paddack is (TJ surgery) is done for the year.
The last I heard on Maeda was there was a possibility he could be back in September. I haven't heard anything about Dobnak since he went on the 60-day and really nothing since Alcala was transferred to the 60-day.
The only thing I saw on Romero was when he was put on the list, they thought he would be ready to go after 10 days, but he got transferred to the 60-day.
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!
