Don't Feed the Greed? What does that mean...

Hey all,

I am a lifelong Twins fan, who tries to see the connection between faith and baseball. If others are interested, I encourage you to read: http://www.amazon.com/The-Faith-50-M.../dp/0664223052
I am not a sabermetician. I'm a preacher. I understand the saber-principles, and find these new approaches fascinating. My posts are sometimes about the numbers, but more importantly, what's the soul of the game about? Lew Ford's return to the majors, and Morneau's comeback from injury, that sort of stuff. Or, Scott Baker, signing a ball for my kid, and writing "God bless" along with his signature. What causes a player to do that?

These are the stories that intrigue me, and how labor and management interact, for the good of the game. "Don't Feed the Greed" is my moniker, taken from a sign I held outside the Metrodome, after we the fans, lost a season because of greed. I hope it never happens again. This game is precious, even holy, at times. Thanks for the conversation.

  1. Rosario, Carew and the Jump from Single A to the Majors

    Hey friends,

    I am willing to admit that it's way too early to get our hopes up regarding Eddie Rosario and his 5 for 8 outburst against AA to AAA level pitchers. Some of the heavy hitters on this site have commented that it's absurd to believe that we could hear--once again--chants of "Eddie, Eddie" as early as this spring in Minnie. I get it.

    But don't tell me it can never happen. http://www.baseball-reference.com/mi...d=carew-001rod
