Devereaux's Achievements

  1. And if you're really serious at beating the cold, swing at the first pitch in the Caribbean Winter Leagues!
  2. I feel for you for your impending loss. I wore my "Santana/Nathan 2004" long sleeve from the Batgirl site until long after the neck hung down to my chest.
  3. My daughter - two of my three daughters - has a Yankees fan boyfriend who is very gently giving me business via text. I wrote that I always keep my expectations low because I have lived through many seasons. It's true, and it helps, but then I started to think: Yankees fans don't necessarily have to understand this phenomenon.
  4. Bad postseason baseball is better than no postseason baseball. Got me to hang out with my nursing home dad two days in a row.
  5. I saw a Gladden jersey at the park last night which was cool. But I don't think I'd trade it for my Florimon 25 shersey.
  6. Same. Out of the mean streets. Played 150 games a year - in center field. Loved to be in the batter's box. Batted first, then third. Told people to "get on my back." Came through in clutch situations. Brought fans to the Metrodome. Not an obvious stud early, Puckett worked in a factory and made his path through junior college. Always spoke of the value of hard work, and of realizing his fortune to make a living playing a game. Made Minnesota his home. I am old enough to remember watching Harmon in the on-deck circle and being thrilled to see him at the plate. But no one in any sport will ever compare to Kirby for me. My Mount Rushmore has Killebrew, Oliva, Puckett and probably Hrbek or Hunter.
  7. How was Miguel Sano ever a superstar? And how is this line anything but self-exposing baloney? "The age issue hasn’t been brought up in recent years and that’s probably a good thing for Twins Territory." Do you still think he's going to be deported as a terrorist?
  8. Eddie Rosario, since Dozier left. Team MVP, he exemplifies the young talented outfield defense, the aggressive batting line up, the predominately Caribbean-born roster. He plays with a desire and panache that is spreading.
  9. Very conspiratorial. Which of the drugs of abuse do you think it was then? Was he mixing weed and PCP? What's the rumor? http://mlb.mlb.com/pa/pdf/prohibited-substances.pdf
  10. Are you inferring Rosario lied to the Star Tribune? http://www.startribune.com/twins-prospect-rosario-has-nothing-to-do-but-wait/257268071/
  11. Maybe... Are you inferring Rosario lied to the Star Tribune? http://www.startribune.com/twins-prospect-rosario-has-nothing-to-do-but-wait/257268071/ Source: Article: Longest Tenured Minnesota Twins - 2019
  12. Rosario's "drug of abuse" is now legal for medicinal use in Minnesota (and Arizona, where he was tested) and for recreational purposes in 10 states.
  13. Thanks for the shout out, John. Didn't see that coming. Have enjoyed your work from waaay back. Win Twins!
