  1. I'm really disappointed to see no journalists worked the phrase "slapping massive dongs" into their write-ups about the Derby. Feels like a real missed opportunity, perhaps even cowardice IMO.

      Maybe ALL of the journalists did and their editors ruined it for everyone?

      @Brock BeauchampWe can't have any fun anymore, can we?

  2. I've rarely felt strongly about specific draft picks in any sport, even less so about baseball. Too much that we as fans just don't know about these kids to have a real opinion about them.

  3. Still spamming status updates for funsies.

  7. Jacob deGrom's ERA+ is now at (LOL) 772.

      It's absolutely amazing what he's done.

      @Seth Stohs His FIP is now at 0.87. I knew it was theoretically possible for a starter to have a FIP under under 1.00 but I never thought I'd see it happen.

  8. Jacob deGrom has started ten games. He has allowed four runs. He has driven in five runs. His ERA+ is… 689. Dude, seriously.

      I generally lean away from letting pitchers win MVPs, with a few notable exceptions. If deGrom keeps this up, 2021 will be one of those exceptions. He's on pace for roughly ten win season, which is crazyland for a pitcher who only plays once every five games.

      I wish deGrom were on my team

      He’ll be lucky to qualify for an ERA title at this rate, let alone an MVP. But yes, the numbers are cartoonish.

  9. So, yeah, the Yankees tonight.

    Yikes.

      Someone is featuring this matchup as the two most disappointing teams in MLB. So far, I think it is true. The pessimist in me sees the Bronx Bombers reawakening this week. The optimist says it is time for the worm to turn.

  10. I think it's time to accept that it's extremely unlikely this team will be even .500 when the deadline forces a decision.

  11. Kirilloff straight into the MN lineup tonight? Didn’t see that coming, thought he’d get reps for SPS.

      He played for the Saints the past two nights, and homered in both games.

      Ah, okay.

      How’d I miss that?

      Must just be busy with other stuff... Ha! 

  12. Miguel Sano’s wRC+ now at 107, which is closing in on league average first baseman territory. 

  13. In today's "baseball narratives are weird and often wrong", Miguel Sano's 2021 K% is now the lowest he's ever had in his career (by 0.1.% but THAT'S STILL THE LOWEST).

      And after Wednesday's game, it's not the lowest anymore. :)

      Although it's still probably the lowest relative to the rising league K%.

  14. Nice blog entry on the Pressly deal today!

      Agreed. I think this can be a fun series!! Thanks for writing it. Always fun looking back! 

  15. Heading to my first Twins game in nearly two years and I couldn't be less excited to watch this team right now.

      I'm just going to get REALLY drunk so I black out by the third inning. That way I'll leave the game thinking the Twins won 4-1.

      Glad you got to see a win.

      The win was nice but the game was still not very good, unfortunately. This team just feels so lifeless. 

  16. This team sure is fun to watch, amirite?

  17. In what inning will the Twins offense stop scoring runs tonight, the second or third?

  18. Going to start cleaning up the ads displaying *everywhere* on page, hopefully can get that resolved today.

  19. Excited to see the site gets its first regular load test during tonight's game...

  20. Here's a dated meme for your wall, Parker.
