    Excellent premise, and well done. You even left shortstop open for us to argue about. Since you put a lot of weight on clubhouse presence and fighting spirit, my vote goes to Tanner of the Bad News Bears, who probably was the model for the real life AJ Pierzynski.

    Not to nitpick, but Jobu himself doesn't hit anything. He come, take fear from bats. So, hitting coach?

    I was hoping someone would mention Bang the Drum Slowly. That’s probably No. 1 on the my need-to-watch list.

    Great article - fun topic. 
     
    My one adds could be batting eighth and playing catcher Robert Dinero playing Bruce Pearson or joining the pitching staff Michael Moriarty as Henry Wiggen - both in Bang the Drum Slowly. That is an awesome baseball movie. Makes me cry every time.

    YOU LEFT OUT THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS: You attended the game with Chief, and Wallner got an RBI from the HBP! Jeez, get your act together, Mr high-falutin' blogger.

    He took a masking agent, and believing it was for the reason he suggested seems thick to me. The ONLY reason you don’t run that by the Twins staff is because you don’t want the answer.

    Thanks for making my point. "Uninformed fan" is exactly the kind of comment I was talking about in my post, and you led off with it. Well played.

    Unfortunately, while it's certainly the smallest of small sample sizes, I left Phoenix after the weekend thoroughly unimpressed with the Twins AFL contingent.
     
    None of them looked ready to contribute to the Twins any time soon, to me.

    USAFChief reacted to gunnarthor in WARNE: Twins Unequivocally Did the Right Thing at the Trade Deadline   
    The issue of selling at the deadline rides on one question - were the Twins contenders for the playoffs this year? The answer was yes. The new, smart FO didn't know that. The trades themselves look ok enough but it's not like we received anything overly great back. So we punted on a winnable season and that was only salvaged by the players who won despite the lack of resources from the FO. 
     
    I don't know much about social media but it seems quite small to attack the tweeter in question as much as you did. Perhaps there is more to it than what you published on TD but his tweet wasn't mind bending.
