  1. The Great Twins Scotch Bet

    At the start of the year my wife (aka Stinky), her father (aka Gouger) and I made a bet. The winner of this bet would win two glasses of scotch (redeemable at any time they chose), the losers would buy said scotch.

    The subject of the ...

  2. Getting the Band Back Together

    Years ago, back when there were frequent playoff berths and easy jokes to crack amid winning seasons, we debuted a segment called: Sargent Gardy's Lonely Hits Club Band. Part Beatles homage, part McLaughlin Group homage, all goofy. Few people read them...but I was amused enough to make a t-shirt in their honor. I was wearing that t-shirt yesterday when my father-in-law sent the following text message: "Morneau is gone-hope they can get him back next year."


    My wife and ...
  3. Adopt a Prospect Vol 2.5: Never Give Up, Never Surrender

    This is the final installment of our inconsistent series attempting to motivate Luis Perdomo who was today, released by the Rochester Redwings and Minnesota Twins
    Wings moves: RHP Luis Perdomo released; RHP Cole De Vries promoted from Double-A New Britain.

  4. Dog Days: It's Okay for Puppies to Lose

    Hi again humans.


    I am Sidney, and I am blogging for my humans. Why you ask? My humans are frustrated with the Twins. They lose and lose, they say. My humans even argue over how much the Twins will lose, which is kind of silly because even if one of my humans win...they will watch the Twins lose.


    When my hairy human takes me in the car (which I hate so much it makes me vomit in fury), he presses a button and we hear the voices of other people talking about ...
  5. Dog Days: You Guys are Weird

    I SEE YOU READING THIS CAT!!
    Hello again.


    I am Sidney the Dog. And I am writing the August posts for my humans. They are training to run 10 miles. They are weird.


    I have noticed that many humans are weird. If you ...
  6. Dog Days: The Ideal Offense

    Hello Humans...my name is Sidney. I am a dog. I am going to write some blog posts this month.


    My humans normally write this blog thingy about baseball and good stuff. But lately they've been all tired and stuff. They get up and run many miles while I sleep on the porch. They work on things like spreadsheets and lesson plans while I sleep on the couch. They clean up the house ...
  7. A-Rod: Baseball's A-hole Boyfriend

    Is that a match or a cup of tea?
    (sportspickle.com)
    I've always been a bit of a softie when it comes to athletes in trouble. I rooted for Nick Blackburn and Tsuyoshi Nishioka to make a comeback when they were as unpopular as they could possibly be, I defended Joe Mauer through ...
  8. Trade Talk: The New York Yankees

    Buyers or Sellers
    Remember the start of the season when all the "experts" were forecasting a fall from grace for the Yankees? [Sigh] Those were the days to be a Yankee hater. Now a team of has-beens and "who-the-hell?"s are sitting a couple games over .500 and just a hundful games out of the Wild Card race.

    And even if they weren't, the Yankees would still be buyers. They'll always be buyers

    A plague of flesh eating bacteria could decimate the ...
  9. The Nobel Prize, Steroids and You

    (This little diatribe is originally posted and possibly more clearly formatted at our other website: Peanuts from Heaven)

    In what will come as no surprise to anyone who reads my writing regularly, I don't like math. I much prefer words (hence the whole teaching English and writing-a-tonnage-of-words-for-my-own-amusement-thing), but I know that math has a valuable place in the world.


    That's why I read London based magazine The Economist (well, that and the snarky ...

  11. Wha' Happened #10 ("Best" Games)

    There's a fuller write up "recapping" the last week plus in Twins Territory at our main blog, but here are a few key samplings from each series

    Game 76
    Marlins 5 - Twins 3
    The Twins have a good deal of early success against Miami's starter in the first inning, they run into trouble against Kevin "Killthrow" Slowey, who savored the opportunity to best the team that let him go. Elsewhere "Dr. Cakeburn"Nick Blackburn, and Boof Bonser plotted their ...
  12. Beautiful Games: Why Baseball and Soccer Go Hand-in-Foot

    On Friday Mrs. Peanut and I will go to England/Scotland on vacation, this means there will be very few PFH blogs coming out (I have a few scheduled to drop in absentia), but in preparation for that and as fine example of laziness time-management, I'm using a blog from another site: The Montanan Hooligans' World Cup Center since it relates to why I love baseball. If what I write makes you even slightly curious about more soccer writing, feel free to check that out...and know that while baseball might ...

  13. Wha' Happened #9 (GAME OF THE WEEK)

    Rather than continually reposting the same stuff here as on my other website--and since these recaps are often (week[s]) late--I'm going to trim down these posts to more manageable bite size single best game write ups I've got, and trust that if you want to read more you will find it at THIS WEBSITE!

    Game 69
    Twins 7 - White Sox 5
    The Twins do not care for power hitting. It hurts the feelings of our opponents after all, and we can't have that.


    But we're ...

  14. Those Damn Yankees: Dealing with Fans

    This post (and a wealth of other goofy ones like it) is available at our independent website: Peanuts From Heaven Inc.




    Most people have a "Yankees fans stink" story.


    Back at the Metrodome, my wife and her father sat in front of three "woo-girls" from Iowa, so desperate for Derek Jeter's attention that they squealed and shouted "pretty ...
