Back on Sunday I was attempting to gear up for some more NFL playoff action when this entered my Twitter feed.
Just read @RandBallsStu's Nick Punto Oral History to @JocMogs14, so now she's one of the cool kids. GET MONEY!— Brendan K. (@elbrendano) January 4, 2015
This led me down a Twinkie Town rabbit hole that included finding my favorite TT article of all time, Jon Marthaler's Minnesota welcome to current MLB.com Twins writer Rhett Bollinger. That then caused me to reminisce about the late* Marthaler and I eventually rediscovered these two articles, a pair of pieces explaining the Twins with Venn diagrams.
* Note: Jon is not actually dead.
Even though I try to focus more on analytical pieces here at TT, I'm suffering from a bit of cabin fever and chose to reconnect with my roots when I first started blogging in 2009 where I tried to blend analysis with satire. There were some successes, there were some failures, but overall I felt I did a solid job. Hell, I caught Jesse's eye so I couldn't have been that bad.
Anyway, I would like to
treat punish you with some Venn diagrams I dreamed up over the past couple days. Save your gift receipts as satisfaction is totally not guaranteed.
