After getting my daily dose of TD, I headed to the sports section of the Strib. That got me thinking, who in the heck has been writing Sid's column?
Oswaldo Aria is one of my favorite Twins. When he came back up from his wrist injury, he brought energy, enthusiasm, and attitude along with his power stroke. Sadly, he has regressed big time in the month of June.
