    Well, just remember, Hawk exists to make all other play-by-play analysts sound good. With Gubicza running a close second.

    Blyleven has his faults, but he is not the complete homer other analysts...

    On another note, if you're a decent pitcher, would you really want to pitch for a team with a suspect defense? As of right now, the infield defense is marginal and the only known quantity in the...

    I think the market and the market will force the Twins to blow up the team and start from scratch.

    By that I mean teams are signing players to outlandish contracts while it is very evident we're...

    Jim, there is another possibility that is being ignored. There are signs the economy is sliding back into recession. I suspect Twins management is probably caught on the horns of a dilemma from a...

    Parker, I forgot to mention, thanks for the reply.

    The Twins all of a sudden seem to have some extra pieces, something I wouldn't have said earlier in the year.

    If a team is willing to trade a starting pitcher straight up for a position player, best look closely at the pitcher or the player. (There's a reason why Tampa was willing to trade Delmon for Garza) ...

    I was having fun with this until I looked over at Gameday and noticed Gardy managed his way out of a win.

    How may pitches had Diamond thrown until he was pulled?
