    If we are going to be bad this year can we at least have fun?

    I might have to get a lobotomy because I'm starting to think like a Cubs fan. I was just thinking though, if we are going to be as bad this year as it looks like we are, can we at least make it funny by bringing back Lew Ford or .... you name another player.

    How about getting Carlos Gomez's "excitement" back?

    A little Punto scrappiness, grit, hustle, and determination wouldn't hurt either.


    Oh yeah, and slides into first.

    Yes! These are all really good!!
    I want to see Lew Ford getting ready to pinch run by sprinting back and forth in foul ball territory. Every inning.

    Dick Bremer can frequently show replays of Ben Revere rolling over himself going from 2nd to 3rd.

    I mean, more often than he already did.

    You're right, Dave going on a Vodka-fueled rage at Target Field would make for great theatre.

    Joe Niekro could teach the staff the fine art of dealing with a defective baseball that is too smooth and perfect.

    In fact, make Butera the 5th starter.

    What's the over/under on how many games into the season the Twins will be when Dick or Bert wonder why failing young pitchers like the one getting blown out for the Twins aren't taught the knuckleball as a last resort before giving up on them?

    John Gaub, Jack Hanrahan, bring up Cole DeVries and they can market all the Minnesotans on the roster. They are all one of us.

    Mike Redmond for backup catcher. He didn't want to be a manager anyway.
