  1. In fact, here’s photographic proof!
  2. The Honorable Mention is my favorite. There was nothing like being on that field. Digging into the batter's box to take a swing at a pitch thrown by my dad. To (yes it's cliche as heck, but you have to do it) go into the corn to see what's "on the other side." It's an experience every baseball fan should do if they have the opportunity. PS: I live in Chicago. Wrigley is trash.
  3. Alright. I’ll be brave. After 12 innings, a regular season game should end in a tie. Draws work just fine in soccer, and with bullpens taxed as much as they are, there has to be an end point to a game. I’d suggest some gimmick like a home run derby (ala hockey’s shootout) but again, someone’s throwing and someone is swinging, escalating the potential for injury.
  4. I have no interest in any of these teams, but solely from an entertainment standpoint, LA vs Houston II would be interesting. Joe Kelly vs Everyone. Otherwise I just want it over as soon as possible so the Handbook can be released!
  5. That was a fun video to watch. Hammer was huge in the late 80’s/early 90’s.
  6. No doubt this season has been a complete disaster, and has, at least to me, squandered an opportunity to capitalize on a team with Cruz and Berrios, whom would still be here if things weren't so bad. However, I hesitate to call for the front office to be let go. The team spun in oblivion for years, minus the aberration years here and there, and we were all clamoring for a modern front office that took analytics seriously. It was acknowledged that once that happened, there’d be some growing pains. Then 2019 happened. And we all felt something special was happening. Quicker than planned. 2020 was a weird year for everyone, and still the Twins looked to be on track. This year is more than a step back, but to scrap all of it now would set the franchise back even further. Falvey and Levine brought the team from where they were to what we got in 2019/2020. It’s my opinion that they deserve a chance to right the ship. As far as evaluating the minor leagues, the complete system sat still in 2020 and underwent a complete overhaul in 2021. I don’t think evaluating the Twins minor league prospects is going to be clear for a while. Again, that’s just me.
  7. I have a Mauer shirt that's at least 12 years old. I'll never let it go.......
  8. All of this excitement and confidence, while foreign, adds to the intrigue of this season. The downside is there would be a bigger letdown if things don't go as we all hope they will, but it's the risk that we all take as fans of the team. It's a good feeling to be in this position, as opposed to the same old "We hope to be competitive and not be totally embarrassed by July" mentality that permeated Spring Trainings for far too long! I for one am looking forward to this ride, and hoping it doesn't come to a stop until late October! Go Twins!
  9. Life long Chicagoan here. I live on the North (Cub) side of town so I have no issues with fans unless I attend a game at Sox Park (too lazy to list all the aliases). Twins Daily and Gleeman and the Geek make me feel like a part of Twins Territory even here in "enemy Territory"
  10. I'm not against a reformatting of the playoff structure, but this seems to me to be a way to try and appease the young, uninterested former fans who need some flashy, reality show type gimmick to be interested. I agree with the concept that the loser of the WC game is not a playoff team, but never liked the one game idea. It should at least be a best of 3. If you want to have a 6 team playoff structure, then teams 1-2 get a bye, teams 4-6 play a 3 game series and then you have the 2 rounds like we have now. Just spitballing while the 7th graders work in groups on a project........
  11. My hope is that Graterol becomes a force in the LA bullpen and leads them to the World Series, where he then gives up a championship winning homer to Josh Donaldson. Also, I hope the winning pitcher in that game is Kenta Maeda. Oh what the heck....I hope all of the players going to Boston are busts and that the Red Sox finish behind Baltimore! (i'm not salty at all)
