  1. Mets make moves to own free agency; Eduardo Escobar, Mark Canha, now Starling Marte. Geez, I guess Billy Eppler found the check book.
  2. An interesting study would be to look at game scores of individual performances in the post season. Is it hitting game scores that win the most post season games or pitching?
  3. As a ball player, what's not to like with the feast or famine approach? I hit the homer, I don't have to worry about running around the bases, having to know situations, run the risk of injury. I can just trot around the bases, hey, look at me I just gave you a souvenir of my wonderfulness, thump my heart, kiss my fingers, point to the sky, cross home plate, bump elbows and celebrate with all the guys and have a seat. If I strikeout, hey, no problem. At least I didn't hit into a double play and again, I don't have the fuss of having to run again. Back to the dugout and my bag of seeds. On defense, the other guy hits a homer and I can just stand there and marvel at its majestic trajectory and watch the fans scramble for the ball . . . very entertaining. Of course if the other guy strikes out . . . awesome. One down . . . two down, three and were outta here and I didn't have to run around chasing the baseball, risk injury or exert myself. Home run derby baby. Who needs athletes.

    Thanks

    Was reading the words of Solomon this morning, the end of Ecclesiastes Chapter 5: "Even so, I have noticed one thing, at least, is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life." So on Thanksgiving, eat, drink and be merry, enjoy those who are around you and give thanks. Thanks to everybody here for a great forum for all things Twins. You know, God foretold us about baseball in the Bible. It all starts with, " In the big inning . . . " ( you have to say it, not read it). Have a great Thanksgiving everybody.
  5. Also, preventing passed balls and wild pitches. Gotta keep those pesky baserunners from advancing.
  6. The only closer I would pick over Nathan is Mariano and his freakin' cut-fastball buzzsaw.
  7. If David Ortiz doesn't make the Hall of Fame then the Hall of Fame isn't really worth much anymore.
  8. Steven Matz to the Cardinals, 4 years $44 mil, could earn up to &48 mil.
  9. Had Vic Power on my paper route in Minneapolis when I was a kid. Mrs. Power always handled collections. I always made sure there were no rips or tears and all inserts were there. I was bummed when they moved away.
