  1. Fire Gardy and Rick Anderson to start. Let Mauer go out gracefully with an "injury" so we can move the logjam at first base. It's time for some new voices in the clubhouse.
  2. There is other back and forth about inflation, but isn't $150 today not that far away from when they were around $100 in the past? Again, the stadium was built to allow them to play in this arena.
  3. Could someone explain how this is the same or different than Joe Mauer 2009? Player developed in your system, great performance, off and on, then especially on in a high leverage year. Reasons to believe revenue would go up in the future. We know now Mauer never played up to that contract, but it was the right thing to do at that time. Tell me why I'm right or wrong. Not trying to be controversial.
  4. This probably belongs in the "Morneau in the booth thread", but that combined unwieldy broadcast crew was terrible.
  5. Thanks for the comments from everyone. I did figure it out after my post, but I always like to view things from the outsider's perspective, and I was more patient than most would be in "looking for" good content. Hoping the new format is an open door to new people and not a circle jerk among the regulars. I'm saying this as someone that mods another forum, and we struggle with the same thing.
  6. I like to think I am only slightly below average in intelligence, but I'm finding it hard to find the game threads and thread to piss and moan about this terrible team after the game. Do I have to go to the Front Page to do the latter? Where are game threads? I know some of this has changed over time but I haven't been here often enough to follow each change. For what it's worth I suspect there might be others that don't stick here because those are the more interesting threads.
  7. I assume this is where someone says when the weather warms up the ball will start flying again. Two things happen. Sano gets better The Yankees start hitting more home runs than everyone else.
  8. Honestly I don't think this was policy in 2019. I know for a fact we still had to take stuff out of our pockets, and I'm pretty sure I'd remember if my wife had to manage not taking even an average sized purse. I thought the NFL was allowing clear bags under a certain size, that wasn't tiny? Or did that change, too?
  9. Thankfully we went before gates opened and were warned by a friendly security guy in advance that this year there are no bags of any kind except tiny purses. Tiny tiny purses. This in theory is to speed up lines and eliminate the need to look at bags. Anyway, even as a STH that gets all of the messaging, this came as news to us. So don't get burned having to make a trip back to your car if you go to a game.
  10. This is spot on. I've been a full STH since 2008, yet I was thrown into the browser battle with all of the 20 game people at 10 a.m. on a Thursday or whatever it was. I was able to be in the system at that time, but I still lost the fight against my web browser. It's absolutely ridiculous that I've paid the Twins over $9,300/yr for over ten years and I still have to play games like this. They don't make much distinction between levels of STH, and that is just flat out bad business. They should have given us at least a day or two of right of first refusal on an offering, and then turned whatever was left over to the rest of the STH and general public.
  11. Considering how much effort the Twins put into trying to get people to come to games and buy tickets, they have no clue how to manage season ticket holder customer service. They are all focused on sales over service.
  12. I missed out on OD tickets by about 5 minutes. I was extremely pissed by that time. How they would sell tickets to "STH" and then to the public without a risk free experience to full STH is absolutely beyond belief for me. What a terrible way to reward your most loyal "customers". I did get a variety of tickets for other games, but they were spread around, as opposed to the Club Level where my regular seats are. On the upside I'm spending less for the less reliable weather games, so there's that.
  13. I can share that the season ticket holder presale was a terrible experienced. It crashed on me for the first 30 minutes until I switched over to Microsoft Edge.
  14. Since this thread has been quiet for four days...an interesting counter narrative was built in today's letters to the editor. I didn't realize it until it was pointed out, but every single story of adulation and picture with a sports figure has been with or from a male athlete or colleague.
