  1. I have enjoyed everyone of these posts. This issue is like a play of light on a baseball diamond's multifaceted surface.
  2. In the grand scheme of things, it will all work out. I can see the Twins trading Ursella to a desperate NL pennant contender who just lost its 3B to an injury sometime in June, for another Joe Ryan-like AAA pitcher. Then bring up Lewis to play 3B. Let's watch to see what positions Lewis plays at St Paul and we will get a better idea of what the FO has planned for Royce's immediate future.
  3. I like Rocco's style of management. Laid back, praises the players when appropriate and does not publicly throw anyone under the bus. Articulate. Good manners. Minnesota nice. Rocco has much more info upon which to base his decisions than we do. Some of this info cannot be shared out of loyalty to the particular player or the coach involved and some info cannot be shared because it would give the opposing teams information they could use against the Twins in a game. Through experiences in my life, I have come to admire the man in the arena. Theodore Roosevelt wrote: "It is not the critic who counts; it is not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. " Rocco is the leader on the field and in the clubhouse for the Minnesota Twins, my favorite team from even before the Senators moved to Minnesota. I admire his persistent efforts to help my all-time favorite sports team achieve goals which we dream about.
  4. My main takeaways are that I like to win and I hate to lose. I like hustle and I hate watching a batter jog to first base. I like a good bunt and I hate not seeing one. I like strong throwing arms at SS and at 3B. I like a good fielding first baseman and I hate errors. I like a game where the umpires are not even noticed and I hate a game where the umps are noticed. I like Minnesota nice and I hate pitches which hit Twins' hitters' hands. I like nachos with cheese and peppers and I hate pike on a stick. I like the Twins and I hate the Yankees.
