  1. Is there any reason, other than we fans don't like waiting, for things to move faster? If not, then there's no need to artificially accelerate the FA market.
  2. Yay! No more Kasota Gold! Yay! No more Baby Blues! I love the cream "Twin Cities" home alternates! I think I like the standard home whites the least, but can't put my finger on what exactly I don't like about them. I wasn't a fan of the "M*" cap until I saw that it's the old Washington Senators "W" turned upside down. I appreciate that nod to the franchise's history. And the star ties them in with other MN sports franchises, as shown in pictures others have posted in previous comments.
  3. I heard there was a 38-year-old reliever we could sign for league minimum with that money instead, that would clearly help more than additional coaching and development.
  4. For those of you who obviously didn't go read the linked UniWatch article, and are complaining about the color change of the T and the button (aka squatchee), and the patterns on the left and right of the logo, here is what UniWatch said about those: So, the notable changes that are POSSIBLY part of the rebrand are the thickening of the letters, the subtler serifs on the T, the shape change of the C, and the slight spacing change (due to the shape change of the C). I would not be surprised if the T changing from white to cream IS part of the rebrand though, as the Twins do have a history of using cream. In fact, I kinda hope it is, as I've always liked the use of cream instead of white.
  5. The UniWatch article notes that all the "southwest" caps had that cream color instead of white. An interesting idea being discussed in the comments of the UniWatch article is that they may rebrand from the Minnesota Twins to the Minneapolis Twins or Twin City Twins, as not many professional teams use state names anymore, most use city names.
  6. I think people saying LA won't sign Correa because the fans hate him, are vastly underestimating the fickleness of fans. As Jerry Seinfeld says: ""Loyalty to any one sports team is pretty hard to justify, because the players are always changing, the team can move to another city. You're actually rooting for the clothes, when you get right down to it. You know what I mean? You are standing and cheering and yelling for your clothes to beat the clothes from another city. Fans will be so in love with a player, but if he goes to another team, they boo him. This is the same human being in a different shirt; they hate him now. Boo! Different shirt! Boo!" I think you can change that last part to "Fans will hate a player, but if he joins their team, they love him. This is the same human being in a different shirt; they love him now" and it still applies.
  7. Bring back the cream-colored pinstripe home jerseys! Those were my favorite.
  8. Copy/pasting my comment from the forums: I like the pitch clock, and I think in 5-10 years it will be a complete non-issue. Some of the current veterans will put up a stink, but they will slowly get used to it and/or retire. I think pitch clock infractions will become about as common as balks, just a few per year per team. Get the ball, get the sign, pitch the ball. Get the ball, get the sign, pitch the ball. Let's go! Larger bases, I don't really care one way or another. I'd be curious what the data says about whether or not it increased SB attempts and/or success rate in the minors. I feel like I did see an article about this somewhere once, but I don't remember what the conclusion was. Limited disengagements, I think this will have minimal impact as you rarely see a pitcher throw over or step off more the once or twice an at bat anyway. I dislike the shift limitations. I feel like this year we were finally starting to see some batters make the adjustment to hitting the other way, and now MLB limits shifts, so everyone can go back to being pull happy. I've said before, and I'll say again, hitting the other way doesn't mean you have to do that for the rest of your career. You just have to show the other team you're willing and capable of it, and it will no longer be worth it for them to shift you. Then, once they no longer shift you, you can start pulling to your heart's content again. And if they then starting shifting you again, you put a few the other way, and repeat they cycle.

  10. Pssh, TD is thicker than blood! (kidding, use your son)
  11. If you end up going with Fi, send me your email address and I can send you a referral link that will get us both a $20 credit.
  12. My wife and I just got new Pixel 6's with a switch to Google Fi service, using the Pixel Pass program. Paying slightly more than I was for my Verizon service, but getting similar service/coverage, plus new phone every two years, YouTube Premium, YouTube Music, and Play Pass (certain apps/games are free in the Play Store).
  13. Same, all three audio tracks are just the youtube guys in varying qualities.
