Since I’m not nearly as smart or informed about these players as others are, I’ve held off on publishing my own rankings.

    But I’m going to put my rankings out there today, for two reasons. First, I’ve now had time to read and ...

  2. Who (If Anyone) Is Cooperstown Bound in 2013?

    It took me longer than usual to really study the BBWAA Baseball Hall of Fame ballot this year. I don’t know why. However, there remains a pretty interesting storyline this year with so many of the most high-profile steroid era superstars in their first year on the ballot.

  3. Why Do We Care About the Twins?

    I’ve been pretty critical of the Twins front office lately. I’m not alone in that, of course. Quite a number of fans, including many who are far more informed and better able to communicate than I, feel that the Twins have simply not done enough to improve the team this offseason.

  4. Spending the Twins' Money... or Not

    Terry Ryan has been a busy boy. We may or may not be impressed by what he's been doing, but nobody can say he took an early holiday break from the office.

  6. Winter Meetings: Time For Terry Ryan to Step Up.

    This article was originally posted at Knuckleballsblog.com.

    Baseball’s Winter Meetings get in to gear down at the Gaylord Opryland hotel in Nashville on Monday and that’s got me a bit nervous. The Twins, at least at the Major League level, are in a sorry state, having come off a 96-loss season which followed a 99-loss season. It just doesn’t get much worse than this, folks.
