About Don't Feed the Greed Guy

  • Birthday 07/28/1966

Profile Information

  • Biography
    I was the guy who protested outside the Metrodome on Opening Day, 1995, the year after the infamous strike--for mor info, see the archived article & picture in the Star Tribune, April 28, 1995 "Twins homecoming: belated, emotional, victorious" by Dan Barreiro

    I love baseball as theater--comedy (Nishioka) and tragedy (Puckett). So, yeah, I've come back to the game, and love going to see The Boys of Summer play, with my two boys--ages 7 & 9. When I get frustrated with the business of baseball, now I can go in the backyard and play catch. Life is good. Paradise, according to Genesis, is still "a green, walled garden, or park."

  1. Two thoughts: 1) Drop the blackout on the MLB app for season ticket holders. 2) Partner with the St. Paul Saints on local broadcasts when schedules don't conflict. Good conversation.
  2. My first in-person game occurred on July 28th, 1975 at the Met. My Dad took me to my first game on my 9th birthday. The Twins won 9-8. The Royals and Twins combined for 30 hits. Kansas City tied the game in the top of the 8th, but the home town boys walked them off in the bottom of the 9th. I was hooked. BTW, Harmon Killebrew went 2-for-4, for the Kansas City Royals.
  3. Hopefully this will be the epitome of a trade where both sides win. As a professional who works regularly with clients suffering from mental illness, I like the "soul" of this trade. As said above, I'll be cheering for the Marlins and the Twins as this plays out.
  4. I'll buy a Saints ticket to watch him pitch.
  5. Three advantages this year: 1) Ober focused on off-season strength conditioning that will hopefully pay off over the balance of this season. He worked on his slider and change-up, bolstering command and control. 2) Kenta Maeda's impending promotion will likely create a six-man rotation, per Rocco Baldelli. 3) His pitch counts have ranged from the 70's to the 90's over his previous five starts. It's a little early to say that the Twins will cruise to a playoff berth due to a soft schedule, given that they can't seem to beat Detroit at Target Field. But it would be nice to see Ober healthy if the Twins need him in October.
  6. A little something I posted on The Athletic: How about Joe Ryan starting the season 5-0 in his first five starts? First time since 1979, Jerry Koosman. Koosman was born in Appleton, MN. He graduated from high school in Morris, MN and went on to win two games in the World Series for the 1969 Amazing Mets. Here's a great note from his Wikipedia page: "Koosman was discovered by the son of a Shea Stadium usher, John Lucchese, who caught Koosman when he pitched in the United States Army at Fort Bliss, Texas. The Mets offered Koosman a contract after his discharge from the military. Koosman was about to be cut from the Mets in 1966, when Joe McDonald, the assistant farm director, requested Koosman be retained at least until his first payday, as he owed the Mets money they had wired him after his car broke down en route to spring training." Koosman was traded from the Mets to the Twins for Jesse Orosco! Orosco would go on to pitch in the big leagues for 24 years before retiring in 2003 at age 46, after appearing in eight games for the Minnesota Twins. Still with me? Koosman won 20 games for the Twins in 1979. How many wins will Joe Ryan collect in 2023? Note: No one has won 20 games since Cole and Verlander did it in 2019.
  7. The Twins won this trade on the field, off the field, in the papers, and in the clubhouse.
  8. Pitchers - MIN IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA López, P 5.1 2 0 0 3 8 0 0.00
  9. Lots of swinging strikes, and Lopez is regularly hitting 96 mph on the gun.
  10. One inning down, three to go before Rocco comes out for the ball...
  11. Grienke's 2023 Spring training? 7.02 ERA in 5 starts. Let that trend continue, please.
