Its a good day to be a Twin's fan. Once they start playing that will change.

I want to congratulate the private sector Twins for using government state assets to bring down equipment to Ft. Myers. Last week, I was shuttling neighbors to their various doctors appts. here in God's waiting room. I see this huge tractor rig, with no trailer, with the emblems of the Minnesota Golden Gopher Football team. Beautiful rig. Great paint job. No trailer. Just the rig. We all figured he dropped his trailer at the Park, and was headed towards the beach, because of the direction he was heading. I think it is cool see the private sector giving back to the public sector.

Some of the qutores from this article offer a sad omen of what to expect this year. It's really pathetic when major league baseball players have to be taught some of the fundamentals that were mentioned in the article. I would expect a member of our middle school traveling team to understand the points that are being taught to our Minnesota Twins.

The catchers are looking everywhere for suitable pitchers! There are none on the field, must be some in the sky!

I read an online story yesterday,listing the 10 worst off season moves. Can you believe the twins topped the list and where listed twice?

"I read an online story yesterday,listing the 10 worst off season moves. Can you believe the twins topped the list and where listed twice?" I'm surprised they only made the list twice with all the garbage signings/non signings TR made.

Pohlad and Ryan need to explain how they improved the team this year by cutting payroll. Harsh reality....this team is going to stink. Those hoping for the team to contend for a division title are going to be very disappointed. Roster has quite a few minor leaguers on it.

Nobody in Twins management says it out loud, but after the last two seasons everybody knows that this season is about re-establishing the "Twins Way" of strong fundamental play at every level of the organization. It's not fun for our favorite team to be in this position and I'd like to know how things got to be so bad but that's what needs to be done.
