I had the chance late last month to see the Dodgers play in their decrepit stadium while they took on the Florida Marlins. If I hadn't known about Matt Kemp's history with Rhianna, I wouldn't have recoginzed but one name on the team.
Now the Doyers have a chance to win a series against the Twins and I suddenly recoginze every name in the lineup. Who wouldn't? Every starter had a hit the other night.
I say the Twins take a lesson from the Dodgers and start playing like a bankrupt team. Keep a few of the good guys (Thome, Cuddyer, Kubel) and throw away the rest. Certainly we are seeing more action from the kids who keep making yo-yo trips to and from Rochester.
Since we're stuck with Joe Mauer, I say he donate some of his fat wad to the minor leaugers who deserve the money he hasn't been able to earn fairly.
