  1. I'd be shopping Sano. I don't see a higher ceiling for him, and you can't devote a full-time DH slot to someone with those numbers. We may still be able to get another team to bite on him, but it'll be tough. I'm in the "take what you get for him and move on" camp here.
  2. I've got a bunch here from the mid 70s: https://photos.smugmug.com/1970s/1974/i-68wqHK8/1/ff71cc0d/O/1974%20Twins%20Autographs.jpg Check out Jerry Terrell for neatness. Backstory: Was with my family in Baltimore 1974 (I was 12) and the Twins were staying in our hotel. Got all of these there. Of everybody I approached, Larry Hisle was the only dick who refused to sign.
  3. If they would have hung on to some of their existing talent, we probably would't even need to be discussing our lack of action on the free agent market. We could've gotten a few more years out of JJ Hardy, and could have used Ben Revere until Buxton was ready. The talent we've let go to flourish elsewhere is astounding. I think in many cases the money would have been better spent on retention instead of free agents.
  4. Wow- after this move I have a lot more respect for Nishi. Too bad Blackburn won't man-up and do the same thing.
  5. For me it was the mammoth 490ft #596: http://minnesota.twins.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?c_id=mlb&content_id=21906408&vkey=news_mlb&ymd=20110717 I was at the game with my 8 year old son, and he just lit up when that happened. It's something I'll always remember.
  6. Agree completely with "mike wants wins". It's not fair to the team to keep folks like Nishi and Butera on a big league roster. I'm hopeful that they're going to continue to keep making the right decisions this year by dropping Butera. Sad to say it, but I think it's time to encourage Morneau to retire as well. It's a damn shame it's come to this, but again, it's really not fair to the team to keep him on the big league roster.
