  1. I'm finished with this team. I've followed them loyally since 1982, when I moved to Minneapolis. And I left Minneapolis 23 years ago, but I still followed the Twins. But I'm done; it's over. This team will do nothing until ownership changes. And I'm not willing to wait. I'm going back to my roots. "Let's Go Mets!" will be my new/old mantra. I'll use Trevor May to ease the transition. I could say best of luck; but it'd be an empty gesture. Instead, I invite you to follow my lead and dump this sorry franchise.
  2. Joking? I thought you were joking. I'm dead serious. Rocco's in the wrong job. He's not a leader by any stretch of the imagination. But it's not his fault. The buck stops with the owners. Until they sell the franchise, there's no hope.
  3. The guy's got no fire, no command, no spunk!
  4. Here's a quote from Rocco: "This is not OK. We all have to know that, acknowledge that, own it and do what we need to do going forward to make sure that this doesn’t persist, because it was hard. I mean, that was a hard game to get through." Well that ought to do the trick. Thank God we didn't hire a crass guy like LaRussa, At least in our dugout, everyone feels comfortable!
  5. The problem with the Twins starts and ends at the top, with the owners. Imho, they don’t know what they’re doing. Their thinking seems so simplistic, so black and white: new is good; old is bad. They follow the latest trends and dump everything from the past, even ideas and techniques that have proven, over time, to work. Take our manager, for example. Endorsed (blessed) by Korn Ferry, he embodies all the attributes of the new modern manager as dreamed up by the new modern progressive thinkers. But this ideal, completely ignores the real human element and group dynamics of an all-male pr
  6. Please Twins, don't give him a post-MVP-season Joe Mauer type contract. The money Buxton is going to command is too much and the injury risk is too great. Either let it ride out for this year and next, or trade him next year and get something in return. We've got Celestino primed and ready to take over full-time in two years. He probably won't be as good as Buck; but the bucks saved will certainly work to make the team better.
  7. The intangibles: the heart, the soul, the smile, the heft, the Turtle! He's our mascot.
  8. I couldn't have said it better. Our manager is not a leader. He's got no fire.
  9. The MLB is contractually obligated to play the all star game in Atlanta this year. They're going to get sued.
  10. The White Sox are going to win the Central, and it won't even be close. The reason? The manager!
  11. I'm worried about the offense too. I'm also worried about our manager. He has no fire.
  12. I just read that the powers that be have decided to delay the start of AAA baseball for one month. Instead of starting in early April, they're going to start in early May. I'm wondering how this will affect AK.
