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. Lew Ford Homers for Baltimore. Is our Flakiest Former Twin in the Playoffs?

    Lew Ford homered to left center field off of C.C. Sabathia last night (9/8/12), his third home run in 55 at bats for Baltimore. Later in the game, Nick Markakis broke his thumb. He will be out for six weeks.

    So, will Lew Ford be patrolling/platooning in right field for the O's if they make the postseason? LLEEEWWW hasn't spent a lot of time in Baltimore this season, but with Markakis out, one must ask the proverbial question, 'Will Baltimore Get Mileage from Ford' on their postseason ...
