  1. If I had my druthers, this would still be the team I want to see on the field
  2. While that has some merit in baseball, it cannot work in religion. It's a popular opinion for many but it's wrong. Jesus never took a vote with the disciples. Mohammed never had a focus group. Moses shared with the Lord the complaints of the people but it never dictated what was to be done. That was God. Where Smietana (and many) miss the mark is that the issue is education. There are many "recovering Catholics" in the world (meaning people who struggled with the Catholic church for whatever reason and left). But most people who leave the Catholic faith do so because they are poorly educated about the Faith. I think this probably applies to the denominations as well. If someone is following a church, whether it be Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, or Islam, they do it because they believe that their faith is the "True Faith" and therefore contains "The Truth". While society will change, objectively speaking "the Truth" can't change. Otherwise it wouldn't have ever been true. You can market faith but only based on the Truth. Also Happy Easter to those who celebrate! Blessed Passover to others and Blessed Ramadan as well.
  3. I’ve had friends make the argument that 98% of what a manager does is not on game day. (They would say that when I groused about Gardenhire). If there’s truth to that, I think Rocco gets a B to B+. Honestly half the critiques in the article can’t be placed on Baldelli. I’m pretty sure he wasn’t solely responsible for Shoemaker and Happ making more starts or Colombe closing without input from the front office. It wasn’t Baldellis fault that there were so many injuries. On the flip side, the fact that the Twins stayed cohesive and didn’t turn on each other when things went to crap is a testament to good management.
  4. This is the greatest idea in baseball history!! Wait… breaking the race barrier in the major leagues was better. But still, GREAT IDEA!!
  5. I’ve never once said that vaccines aren’t science or support of vacccines is mob thinking. Go back and actually read what I’ve written. I’m not going to repeat myself if you just plain don’t read
  6. Yes I do think he’s saying that. But that doesn’t negate the only other tweet he’s made on the subject. Mob thinking on any side is wrong. But you can’t say that Simmons is participating in it. I have a good friend who’s daughter just started speaking her first words. She got her vaccinations one day and he says (and I believe him) that that was the last day she said anything. That was 18 years ago and she is still non verbal. He’s anti vax and I can’t blame him one bit. Simmons says he has personal reasons to not get vaccinated. That’s enough for me. I got vaccinated and I doubt Simmons would care.
  7. The only issue that I have with his latest tweet is that he misspelled effects. He doesn’t contradict his prior post in the least. He’s making a passive aggressive smart a** statement and there are people just waiting to make a big deal out of nothing. I think if you asked him directly, he’d say “do what’s best for you and your family” Mob thinking is more infectious than COVID
  8. That’s what you claimed he said. He literally said the opposite. I was correcting you
  9. I’m not suggesting that the Twins can’t DFA anyone for any reason on or off the field. The issue I have is with groups of people who aren’t attached to a company thinking that they have the right to have someone fired. It’s happening way to frequently these days. This mob rule mentality is misplaced power. That is the first amendment argument. Mobs don’t have the right to try restrain someone else’s first amendment right.
  10. I have a hard time getting excited about pitching prospects when the Twins are clearly never going to hold on to them after they have developed. I'm tired of the Twins developing pitchers for other teams. (Yup still p***ed about Berrios)
  11. Of course he does. And I have a right to mine. Calling for the dismissal of a person because you don't like their opinion (even though their opinion has absolutely nothing to do with their job) is frightening. I'll grant you, if this was "tongue in cheek" like the articles I'm used to from Stu, I totally missed that. If someone wants to inform me that this was just satire, i'll apologize and shut up about it.
  12. It shouldn’t. But the thrust of the article disagrees with your statement. That is what I have a problem with the article.
