I love Brad Radke.
Joe Sheehan: The Missing Link
Congratulations, Mr. Simms. You are the fattest boy in camp.
"which is sort of like selecting a lineup regular on the basis of penmanship, witty banter, or who's the better juggler"
We finally know why Jason Tyner managed to DH so many games for the Twins.
"Elsewhere in that shed, Brian Sabean continues to pound screws into bricks with a garden rake."
I shouldn't have read this article at work. People are wondering why I just fell out of my chair.
"pair of the most feared sluggers of their day"
Will people "forget" this for 15 years and then "remember" it when the players in question are on their last chance for the Hall of Fame?
It's in Orlando Cabrera's contract that his team can't offer him arbitration if he's a Type A free agent.
Players I'm surprised are still around: Lew Ford, Mark Bellhorn, Damian Moss, Vance Wilson, Matt Kinney, Shingo Takatsu, Alex Cintron.
Didn't Ehren Wassermann receive a little hype two years ago?
Tim Raines Jr.: What happens first, Sr. makes the hall or Jr. retires?
Dee Brown is a good AAA hire (same with Val Pascucci). Lots of Dee Browns out there in sports. Can't say the same about Val Pascucci.
Isn't Brian Mazone the poor guy who got called up by the Phillies to make his major league debut, only to have the game rained out? Still hasn't played in the bigs.
I saw Jesse Orosco Jr. and figured it was the original. He'd only be 52.
I remember when Twins fans got excited about Terry Tiffee. When you cheer for an organization that is all about sacrificing offense for defense, grit, and doing the little things, it's no surprise when fans get their hopes up. Like with Ruben Sierra.
I also appreciate having George Lopez shoved down my throat.
Between the mystique of the Yankees, the intangibles of Derek Jeter, and the little things the Twins do, I think the announcers will make me throw up at least a dozen times during the series, and that's not including the fact that Chip seems to be watching a different game at times and Darling's voice is horrible.
The Twins did end up going with a 12 man pitching staff, and dropping Buscher. I know that 12 is going overboard, especially in the series that requires only 3 starters, but Buscher wasn't going to help anyway, and there weren't any other choices.
Unfortunately for the Twins, all the shortstop defense in the world won't make a difference if every pitch gets hit 400 feet.
Where is Toby Gardenhire? His bloodlines must give him that special gritty quality that some people can appreciate. I mean, if his father says that what he likes in infielders is bunting and running around and catching the ball since it\'s fun to watch, then Toby should be listed, correct? If Ron sets the guidelines for what an infielder should be, then his son must be the prime example.
Interesting interview. I liked reading his perspective on stats in hockey as well as the comparisons between baseball and hockey. Of course, it certainly doesn\'t hurt that he played for the Gophers.
Then when the writers mess up the awards they get to use their own mistakes as \"evidence\" why a player does or doesn\'t belong in the hall of fame.
