    Hit this one and you can name it.....
    I will one day successfully sneak onto the Sportive Podcast, and have nothing intelligent to say or add to the conversation.

    Anyone else think that the Twins are doing it with mirrors so far? I mean other than runs scored and OBP, there really isn't much to indicate this team is a .500 team.

    Why is Dozier trying to bunt for a hit?

    If you're curious, PFlo's last HR batting RH came in the minors in 2012. He hit just one RH HR that year. He's never hit one at the Major League-level.

    Longoria playing back and refusing to play in.

    I think pretty much everyone here on TD is certain the walks and runs that come with them, will tail off at some point. The differences come at when.

    There's been a few things go wrong in the early going too. 2 starting outfielders on the DL, slow starts by Mauer, Pelfrey, Nolasco, Hughes... Even Hicks and Florimon have been worse than expected. If everyone stays healthy and a few of those guys start producing, then what?

    Hopefully Nolasco can settle in for a couple more innings to at least complete 6.

    Let's hope the starting pitching doesn't get even worse.

    I'm not convinced that Mauer is going to get right. I think he is suffering from post concussion and his reaction times are not what they were.

    Early returns on claiming Fuld = favorable.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Even if all it does is get Hicks to hit home runs- great pickup!
