  1. Just so long as no one starts shortselling Royce Lewis, i'm fine. And if anyone does, i will be watching so as to get in on the next gamestop situation. (as nicknames, go perhaps that would be more appropriate for a closer, but i could live with it)
  2. Even after all these years, i would have a hard time picking David Ortiz over Matthew LeCroy. And as there isn't yet one of these articles about Big Pappi, it would seem Mr. Stu concurs? Any thanks for writing, and pass me some of that xmas possum!
  3. Maybe we should have traded for Naughtius Maximus instead?
  4. An i dotting coach? A t crossing coach? And the peas and cues minding coach has an essential role. But then... who coaches the coaches? Levity aside, welcome aboard, luis and hank!
  5. Hurray for exceeding expectations by the slimmest possible margin!
  6. Remind me... when was your day? But yeah! An impressive 50 ways to leave your lover kinda post. (not that anyone counts in base 11 these days, nor was the rhyming there) Perhaps a game thread intro in the works? I myself wouldn't sign Simmons for $5m because i don't run a major league baseball team, And if i did, i'd probably get in trouble due to the lockout. All that said, i don't think i'd mind if the Twins did once the new CBA is reached. While not chump change, $5m is a more trade-able amount should replacement(s) grow into the role, and hopefully his career demonstrates its conservation of kinetic energy.. And reading the posts of flustered TD posters would merely be a silver lining.
  7. Well, lost last 3 games, but they are still better than normal...
  8. I'd settle for a pitcher better than other team's batters...
  9. I have been in a parade like that. Fortunately we were just ahead of the stalled vehicle, and traveled the parade route not realizing no one was behind us the entire time. The route circled back to the parking lot at the start of the parade, and the upside is there was no crazy traffic to deal with as we left!
  10. And 105 minutes until the CBA expires. Any last hour requests?
  11. August is easier to answer, seeing as we know more about our triple A prospects than we do the free agents we end up signing...
  12. I am a little unclear how this works as well. Apparently somehow there is a loophole that allows them to be moved off the 40 man roster without being passed through waivers which is only available at this time of year?
  13. I don't get likes on face book. Can you explain them to me? And has Roxy spent time with multiple organizations? Or is Roxy a one home dog?
  14. I think the Berrios trade did 2 things for the negotiation. It solidified the "no really, if an offer from another team is good enough, it will happen" stance, which at least will give pause to a "holding out for more just because you can" stance. But it also made the "sign to a big extension" budgeting easier. You can give Buxton a little more without having to factor in as much of Berrios deserves that too, and now he will expect it. Anyway, i don't think anything will happen until the CBA stuff resolves itself. Best get set for hibernation...
  15. Just to clarify... Are those $130 million american $ or canada $? Kudos to Berrios! And if the Twins are a silly team, i will still root for 'em!
  16. I don't suppose there is a sports equivalent to stock options? Offer him a slice of the Twins pie at the end of the day. I wonder if any other team would match something like that?
  17. Wasn't it some sort of mutual option? Maybe Colome chose to leave... Then all would be right with the Twins, wouldn't it?
  18. Do they open the books for reservations that far in advance? One time someone told me to get reservations when they started taking them a year away from a wedding in a popular tourist place, i waited 6 months until the national park service opened their campsite reservations. I think i was the only one attending that wedding sleeping in a tent... Wonder if there is good camping near Cooper's town...
