  1. My only quibble is April. I think Colome blowing the save in game 1 sums up the entire month very well.
  2. I think this is quite right. And anyone who thinks the pitch counts aren't mandated by ownership is kidding her/himself. Pitch counts amount to insanely big savings for owners, period. That's why they're enforced by Rocco and literally every single other manager in MLB.
  3. 1.) Where are you from? Born (1968) and raised in Bloomington Minnesota. Lived in Massachusetts for awhile (would love to return but career and family are here), and have lived with my wife in the same home in South Minneapolis for 20 years. 2.) Age Range? 52 3.) What brought you to Twins Daily? I was an enthusiastic follower of Nick Nelson's blog, and he led that crew here when he consolidated with the OG TD Krewe. 4.) Highest level of baseball/softball played? I was afraid of the ball by 6th grade. Since I have no sprint capability, poor hand-eye coordination, and a crappy arm, a growing fear of being hit by a pitch ended my "career" before I was 13. Otherwise, though, I was a solid prospect. 5.) Favorite Twins Player, and favorite underappreciated Twins player, and if you want, favorite current Twins player? Jamie Carroll. Max Kepler. 6.) Favorite non-Twins Daily site/authors? No particular author, but I'm a MLBTR junkie. I used to really enjoy Craig Calcaterra but I don't like how NBC ruined his blog so I eventually lost interest. 7.) Favorite Twitter follows? I don't Twitter. Not sure why because I'm a news junkie, but the format kind of bothers me. 8.) Other interests outside of baseball. Live music. Plus I'm a workaholic (criminal defense lawyer), so I spend a lot of time working which I greatly enjoy. 9.) Favorite part of Twins Daily... forums, blogs, articles, topics... wahtever you like. I enjoy it as an overall resource - impactful baseball reporting that doesn't take itself too seriously. 10.) Tell us what we can do better. What features or other topics would you like to see in-season or out of season? I always want more articles by the original crew (not to knock any of the other excellent contributors at all). Oh, and it bugs me that any post I make that has more than a single sentence, for whatever reason, doesn't recognize the spaces that I put between each sentence. If anyone can tell me if that's a weird setting on my computer I'd appreciate it (MacBook user, running Chrome, but I think it happens when I use my work PC as well, so...). 11.) Have you been to any of the Twins Daily "events?" I was at the first winter event on 6th and Hennepin, which was a blast. No good reason I haven't been to any others, frankly, and I always feel a little bad that I don't attend.
  4. I'm not entirely sure, having not reviewed the MLBPA contract (I'm a criminal defense lawyer, so contract law understanding is essentially confined to law school for me). I also haven't seen Gonzalez' contract or any other subsequently signed player participant's contract. But it seems to me that the contracts the players subsequently signed could be voided as they were bargained for based partially on fraudulent statistical data. Hell, Gonzalez has a career season, admits to cheating, and it seems to me the Twins should have a right to recovery. Any contract attorneys on this site able to chime in?
  5. How did that DP work? I’m watching in a bar with no sound and can’t figure out what happened there.
  6. Feels like with this and Torreyes we're still just bottom feeding. I know we only need a short term solution but still, frustrating.
  7. Given Eddie's dismal second half, I wondered if Jake Cave might get some votes from the distinguished panel. I'm a bit surprised that he did not. I think he's a shoo-in for ROY, right? Regardless, Cave was definitely the "nice surprise" of the season.
  8. Um, okay. Gene Glynn is our third base coach. And he seems to be particularly bad at it, so I cannot even begin to endorse bighat's notion that he should be interim manager.
  9. I hope they make him earn his way back up through every level. The guy could not be more lost and look less like a ballplayer than what he's shown us this season. Edit to add: here is mlbtr's take, which provides a little bit different/more context: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/06/twins-option-miguel-sano.html
  10. Well dang, Seth. Karen and I were in CR for Friday's game, too! Wish I'd have known, I'd have looked for you Regardless, surprised you didn't highlight Kirilloff's excellent night at the plate. 2 for 3 (unless one of his on-bases was based on an error - I see you have him 1 for 3) plus a HPB and BB. Solid fielding, to boot. He was really fun to watch. I'll post some pics when I've got a bit more time. Got some shots of Kirilloff and Lewis at the dish.
  11. You never did get back to letting us know how the Perkins-Surly beer turned out. Did you have a chance to try it, and if so, what did you think?
  12. I like the deadline approach Levine stated, with the caveat that I think they should lean much more towards sellers than anything else. This roster is simply not built to compete against the teams that we know are stocked, nor is it just a matter of more service time for the roster to improve.
  13. Moon Palace is about a mile from home, and a great bookstore. Anyone going tonight should get there early to shop around. If you need coffee, Peace Coffee is next store and is an excellent coffee shop. Finally, there's a little art-house movie theater next store; Trylon Microcinema. Check them out. It's fantastic, and if you're at all into film you'll want to get on their email list to see the killer film schedule they have. Regarding the Keith Law event, I'm super bummed I can't make it. My niece and nephew have a piano recital tonight that starts at the exact time. I can't tell my family I'd rather go to the Keith Law event (I would - I love my niece and nephew but I've been to all of their recitals and will go to many more!), as it's most likely a one-off opportunity. Anyway, I bought a book last night, wrote a nice little note for Keith Law, and hopefully the staff will be able to convince him to sign a copy for me tonight. I'm jealous of those of you who will make it, but have fun!!
