Hmmm, so you clicked this post expecting Tawny, but you find TJ. That is sure to start your Monday off on the wrong foot. Some coworker probably screwed something up and is about to dump the problem on your lap, so you have that to look forward too. Anyway, Tawny’s internet is doing its best imitation of a missing person, so I guess some of you are stuck with me. The rest of you were smarter, and quit reading after the first sentence. Anyway, the bad jokes disappear after this, in favor of good links.
This whatever period of time in Twinkietowndom:
- Matt wrote a good thing, analyzing the frequency of scoring runs with two outs
- Is Max Kepler a good center fielder? Click here to find out!
- Did you know that sometimes even the bad teams win? Great fanpost here!
The things that other people wrote about the Twins. If you care about any of those other sites. I don’t really, but your mileage may vary.
- The latest “hitting machine” for the Twins is a rookie that is starting to attract attention on a bigger stage... of course we already knew about Luis Arreaz.
- Jose Berrios has been slumping, but Wes Johnson has helped tweak the starter’s mechanics, and believes that Berrios is “Close” (Athletic, $$$)
- In the history of Player nicknames on jerseys, the Twins actually pop up, as rookie pitcher Paul Thormodsgard wore “Thor” on his jersey on 1977. That is the perfect name for a Minnesota athlete.
And if you really want to read about things that aren’t the Twins, but who would?
- Baseball players work a strange work schedule, and apparently never know what day it is. Makes sense, if you’ve ever worked third shift, you probably know the feeling.
- It wasn’t just fans who hated the “Players Weekend” Jerseys, as teams around baseball complained, rebelled, and made their distaste clear.
- The Twins’ relief corp had some fun with it though
- Whether or not you stopped by the State Fair for your annual oil change (stole that joke from a dude who tried to sell me a kitchen gadget at a fair, btw,) you might have some interest in which of the new food products were best, and which were worst. Here is a compilation of the reviews on all the new options upon which to gorge yourself.
