Monday Morning Minnesota: Bring back the Powder Blue Unis

Are you awesome? Yes, you’re awesome today!


Hi guys! Welcome to what the cool kids call MonMorMin. And by cool kids, I mean Tawny. She couldn’t make it today. Something about being too cool for us nerds. Nevertheless, the show must go on, even if you are stuck with a far lesser talent.

So, the things and stuff that happened around Twinkie Town this weekend

Other people published things about the Twins this weekend too.

  • Cleveland dot com wants to know who has the edge in the AL Central. If you’re on this site, you probably think the Twins do. If you’re from Cleveland, you might think that other team does. The ones with the racist mascot. They can’t make a convincing case though, so lets just say Minnesota has the edge? Maybe?
  • The Bring Me The News folks crunched the numbers on how hot of a start the Twins have had. In the last quarter century, only the 2001 Twins had a hotter start. Still, this next stretch of games is going to be a real test for the Twins, starting tonight when Houston comes to town.
  • Prospect Guru Jim Callis looked at the contenders for Vlad Jr’s recently vacated title of “baseball’s top prospect” and a couple of guys in the Twins system are on the short list, despite injuries and slow starts hindering them a bit.

Oh, and there is other baseball stuff, besides just the Twins

  • As Cubs infielder Addison Russell attempts to come back from an altogether too short suspension for being a shitty human being, the Cubs are attempting to silence and control the media narratives around Russell. Be warned — comments on this topic WILL be heavily moderated.

If you’re around my age, there is a decent chance you spent way too much time playing this game, musical selection of the day

It took my wife literally less than ten seconds to ask me “why are you playing RollerCoaster Tycoon music.” I knew I married her for a reason.

The topic you can discuss or ignore, it doesn’t hurt my feelings at all when you don’t I promise... [breaks down into inconsolable sobbing]

What was your first job, and how old were you?
