    Why would any Twins fan cheer for a Yankee ever?

    Should he play nursing a hamstring injury and risk greater injury in meaningless games? I get it though. But it also leaves it on Judge to just hit some, and he is slumping anyway. Like 5 of the last 29 or something....... It also means that Judge can pass him with no further competition, right?

    I don't have a problem with that if he is hurting.  He has nothing left to prove this season
    and Miranda at 1B and Wallner at DH should be getting the remaining ABs anyways.

    Good points. That said, the above is exactly how I feel about Dior. I'd never in a million years buy a $120 tee shirt, or a $1200 pair of shoes, a $20,000 purse or a $75,000 bracelet.  Even if I won the lottery. 
    He might as well have said "If you're serious about a quality particle colliders and tandem linac accelerator systems, you have to be willing to drop big money at the Cornell Electron-positron Storage Ring". 
    I totally get the point, but it wasn't relatable. 
    And I don't HATE him for muffing this one, I hope the Twins sign him and open up the checkbook!

    So the Astros need to fire their FO? They did the exact same thing with Correa last year the Twins are doing this year. Letting him hit the market and see if he can get somebody to pay his asking price. The Braves did it with Freeman. Yankees are currently doing it with Judge. Dodgers doing it with Turner. Braves and Swanson. Red Sox and Bogaerts. Rockies with Story last year. 
    That's a bunch of "driftless teams" who win a lot of games (plus the Rockies). It's almost like this is actually a pretty normal situation that plays out 100% of seasons and it's how big free agents are ever on the market. The FO has plenty of things for us to be mad about, we don't need to exaggerate situations and act like they aren't normal to add to the pile of complaints they've already earned.
    Correa was never going to accept anything from the Twins before hitting the market again that wasn't at least 10 years 325 mil to match Seager. Should the Twins have given him that? I wouldn't, but maybe people think they should. I wouldn't go over 7 years and I'd wait for the offseason to see if he can get someone to go 10/325 or if I have a shot at 7 years 250. Not everything is just the FO being terrible at their jobs.

    The Twins received fair value from the Mauer contract.

    Nine of twelve got a reaction from bighat in "Rebranding" underway: New scoreboards and new uniforms   
    Of course I'll have to reserve comment on the new uniforms until I see them, but the one thing they had better not mess with is the TC logo. It should stay on their caps and continue to be used elsewhere. It's unique and it immediately identifies the team. There's nothing resembling it anywhere else in sports.

    Well, when you have a special ticket package that includes poor-to-average quality headwear it's going to attract a lot of people.

    These are each recognizably about one team, even if outsiders aren't necessarily in the know on what the letters stand for. 
    The generic M they had on their uniforms and caps for a while -  hated hated HATED that.  "Milwaukee?  Miami?  Montana?"
    (The worst ever, IMO, was the Expos' M.  "What the heck is elb?" )
