Wally Ellenson high jumped 7" 1/2", not 7'5".

Isn't it ironic how many Twins pitchers find success after leaving the Twins organization? Several no hitters, a Cy Young, and a Liriano later, we're still looking for pitching help. Could it possibly be the coaching?

No manolive, it's called the National League. I could have an ERA under 3.00 over there.

It's totally the NL, as jacksoncage said. RA Dickey was poor as a Twin, wins the Cy Young with the Mets, and now is back to being average with Toronto, back in the AL, this year. Liriano was average with Minn and White Sox, now he's 6-3 with Pirates in the NL. Jason Marquis sucked when with the Twins, and now he's 9-2 with San Diego. The AL is MUCH tougher on pitchers - it's not the coaching manolive.

A new Target Center is possible. The Twins Ballpark Tax is collecting much more than expected and $10 million a year possible, that with $100 million from the Wolves, $5 million a year in new Naming Rights deal and Convention Center Tax provides the needed $400 million. When completed in 2016 we will get NCAA Basketball championship Games every year with an economic impact of $600 million in 10 yrs. and 7,500 new jobs, 2,500 core city, so now we need Governor Dayton on board, call or e-mail. Thanks.

Besides a new Target Center the new Vikings Stadium looks like something from the 1980's when you see the just released new Atlanta Stadium designs, again Governor Dayton needs a heads up.
