Can we look forward to less blogging and more reporting now? Leave the blogs to the former beat writers Reusse and Sinker. Give us some New York Times-like news.

Leo "the lip" Durocher was wrong, nice guys do finish first. Chicago's loss has been our gain.

Sure hope it doesn't come with a bigger buffet allowance. Listen, LEN III, from your readers and friends in the Twins community, PLEASE do something about your weight before you're no longer around to preside over the BWAA or follow the Twins. Each year, it gets worse. Seriously, take that step NOW...before it's too late. Lean, free-range meats, wild-caught fish, nuts and grains, organic dairy (if you need it), no refined carbos, moderate amounts of nuts and grains, plenty of vegetables, some temperate fruits, and whole foods in general. It's time, LEN III. It's time, buddy.
