  1. A well-balanced and thoughtful article, Nick. To remain so interested in this team at this point is a reflection of your dedication to the Twins and this website. I can hardly stand it, myself.
  2. And a reply from the 21st century: Noice.
  3. Slander is a heavy word. I'd edit that out if I were you. Simply criticizing a player is not slanderous. Definition of slander: "the action or crime of making a false spoken statement damaging to a person's reputation."
  4. I agree, but it seems that the players are getting a ton of criticism, and deservedly so.
  5. I have to agree. Though it was frustrating to see him drop the ball after a great catch, I don't think he could have thrown the runner out at first. He was virtually sitting down as I recall.
  6. I didn't want to, but I looked up how fast Segways go. 12.5 miles per hour. Grossman hits a frozen rope. There's no seque for that!
  7. I never heard of apple pandowdy, but I like it! Are you by any chance a traveller from the 18th century?
  8. And a day later he's injured. This man's worth is confusing beyond what I can deal with.
  9. Sano has been terrible, without a doubt, but he alone is not killing the team. There are multiple players doing that. Most, in fact.
  10. The Twins tried to cobble together a starting rotation with a shoe maker who in a matter of weeks will be a foot note in Twins history.
  11. Simmons is a trade piece you overlooked. He's here on a one-year deal, and if the Twins continue to fizzle contending teams will like to add his defensive wizardry. Not much return, but something, and a line to cross later in the summer.
  12. It's like watching a rerun of your least favorite TV show from the 1980s.
  13. Small ball all the way. Learn to be pesky. Bring back some of that piranha spirit.
  14. Dissension has to be growing between the bullpen and position players.
  15. Hindsight and all that, but Rocco sucks. Pineda threw 87 pitches, why couldn't he have pitched the 7th? Pitch count be damned, we need to win this game.
  16. Yeah, but did you see his stolen base rate in the minors? He was thrown out 30% of the time. I love it too, but ... watch out for those SSS's.
