Minnesota Memories Twins Edition

by markroehl on 11-05-2012 at 08:04 PM
Recently, my parents dropped a large box of old stuff they had been saving. This ranged from congratulations cards from when I was born, to athletic accomplishments to nearly every report card I've ever gotten (I've sorted the report cards, but I'm a little scared to go through them in detail). Two of my favorite items are ticket stubs from some of my favorite Twins games that I've had the privilege to attend.

If Jamie Moyer Were a Twin....

by markroehl on 05-08-2012 at 12:55 PM
So if Jamie Moyer played for the Twins this year, at this point he would:

Have the lowest ERA of any starter
Be 3rd on the team in K's
Be 2nd in innings pitched
Be 3rd in wins among starting pitchers (with 1)
