    David HK got a reaction from bighat in COVID-19 Threatening Baseball Next   
    Sorry, there is not little to worry about. So maybe if you fall out of the range of the critical danger zones age or health-wise, you are still in contact with many other people in your daily life who aren't. This is where the greatest spread has been where I am in Hong Kong- family or business gatherings. It is far better to over-react at this critical time, than minimize the danger. It's colleagues, parents, grandparents, anyone in your social circle.  
     
    You did qualify your response, but please, there is no one who has no reason to worry, and to not be protective and proactive.

    Of course Joe was a former ASTRO!    Awesome, though it probably means we need to vacate the 87 crown as well.

    David HK reacted to saviking in Kenta Maeda Trade V2 - How The Twins Struck A Better Deal   
    Ten million dollars for Luke is a good deal considering he probably wouldn't have been a fixture in our outfield anyway. Also is another indicator of how well the trades from two years ago have paid off. It will be interesting to see who we get as the player to be named later although the odds of that player making the big leagues is probably remote. 
     
    Does everyone enjoy following our minor league box scores nightly like I do? It's really a great way to cap off the day before turning in. If some of you haven't tried it here is a good link to easily check ..

    David HK reacted to specialiststeve in Minnesota Twins: A Case for Matt Harvey?   
    I had mentioned him several different times in the low risk - high reward category. I would say if he would accept a minor league deal do it today. Am guessing most of these guys that are in his category they are looking for major league deals so it may be a while before we sign the depth guy in this type of deal.

    Hm. Young nucleus of offensive production, major rotation needs in order to compete.

    Except one team takes the risk and rolls the dice to improve, and the other doesn't.

    You know, this is the typical story. Yes, you're overpaying. Yes, you may not even get a year 4 out of the guy, maybe not even a year 3. But, you're not overpaying a guy like Ryu because you need him 4 years down the line. You're doing that overpaying because you need him NOW. THIS year.
     
    When does this team ever just bite the effing bullet? You know, the way a real contender does.

    One of the greatest OBP for a player that neds up batting 6th or 7th most days. When you figure that out please let me know.
     
    You also don't win games in the playoffs without table setters to get bigger innings going and to get to the pen earlier.

    Heh... I was watching that playoff game in '87 with the gang at Stub and Herb's in Dinkytown.  That pickoff play between Laudner and Gaetti was a dagger!  I have never found any video of that game, anywhere, as much as I'd love to see that again.

    I can't even rank all those games myself, they're all a great jog down memory lane! I went down the youtube rabbit hole for a while after that...
     
    My first Twins memory was that 65 season. I remember crying like a 6 year old when they lost that game 7. Cuz... I was a 6 yr-old, I guess...
     
    What a sweet list! Thanks for posting this!

    David HK reacted to Squirrel in The greatest games ever   
    The game we played against Cleveland in PR last year was a great game. I’d say both game 163’s were amazing, even though we lost one of them. Greatest comeback game has to be the game against Detroit a couple years ago, right before the ASG where we scored what ... 7 runs in the bottom of the 9th? What game was it ... was it against Detroit in 1987 where they picked off the runner at 3rd? Was that the game
    That clinched the AL championship, or am I blurring everything?
     
    Getting too old to remember, but what constitutes ‘greatest’?
     
    But, like you, game 7 in 1991 ... one of the greatest games ever, of any team. And, yeah, okay, I’m biased.

    David HK reacted to Longdistancetwins in Update: Carrasco stepping away from baseball for health   
    It's the same type of leukemia that got Danny Thompson in the 1970s.  At that time it was a virtual death sentence, albeit one that usually gave the patient a few years to live (Thompson managed to play baseball without interruption partly because there wasn't much that could be done for a long-term cure other than some unpleasant experimental treatments).  Now, thank God, a full cure is possible, but it may involve a really tough regimen that includes bone marrow transplants, etc.  So our hope and prayer for Cookie Carrasco is that he can be cured and still pitch.
