Kevin Slowey was Framed!

All the effort of some sort of horrible amalgamation of Denny Hocking, Matt Tolbert and Nick Punto. But no frosted tips. Now with puns!

  1. Monday Morning Madness - July 29, 2013

    Originally posted at Kevin Slowey was Framed!

    So, are the Twins not terrible or is this just another mirage? I've got to say, I've been going back and forth between "this team sucks" and "this team doesn't really suck" far too many times. I'm growing tired of it. It would be nice to just know, you know? Every time I see a lineup posted, I giggle and then make a sad, pathetic joke about Rochester. The starting pitching is underwhelming. However, the Twins have ...
  2. Monday Morning Madness - July 8, 2013

    The Twins dropped two of three in their series against the Blue Jays and in the process, they dropped to eleven games below .500. The Twins are on a 70-win pace, which would be a huge improvement and a giant disappointment at the same time. Prior to the season, if you had told me the Twins were going to win 70 games, I'd have laughed so hard that my pants would have fallen down. I never wore belts. After the first third of the season, ...

    Weekend Recap

    Twins' starters combined for 2 strikeouts in 17 innings against the Orioles. Yikes. Baltimore doesn't strike out a lot as a team, but my goodness, 2 strikeouts in 17 innings? The starters have to do better than that. I get the whole pitch to contact, let the defense do their thing, battle, achieve success idea, but this is too extreme for me. Strikeouts aren't everything and some pitchers can get away with low totals. However, not many can get away with it for a ...
  4. Joe Mauer Hates Pop-Ups

    Sometimes inspiration strikes in odd ways. Today, Rhett Bollinger, the Twins' MLB.com beat writer, sent out this tweet:

    Joe Mauer just popped out. Something he did only once last year in 641 plate appearances. #MNTwins

    Wait, what? I saw that come through my feed and I was immediately interested. Was it true?

    @bridman77 Yep. It's actually only once in

  5. MicroQuestion - Buster Posey = Joe Mauer 2.0?

    Yesterday, I posited that I believe that Joe Mauer is great. I stand by this, but I can see why some are frustrated with Mauer. Buster Posey, on the other hand, is seemingly working on wrapping up his first MVP award. Posey hits home runs, catches regularly and seems to be that emotional leader that many fans get behind. In his two healthy seasons, the Giants have won a World Series and are now serious contenders to win another one. So, my question is this - is Buster Posey everything fans ...

  6. MicroThoughts - Joe Mauer

    My Father-in-Law sent me a text yesterday afternoon. Here is what it said:

    "I see iron man Mauer has missed five straight. Most overpaid player in the game. Have a great weekend."

    The "have a great weekend" part was much appreciated, but the rest of the text just made me shake my head. I want to address each part of this text, as I think these are common sentiments expressed by Twins fans.

    1. Iron Man quip.

    Mauer plays ...
