Twins Blog: TwinsFest 2014

With the old digs coming down, Twinsfest needed to make the move this year to their cozy confines on the other side of downtown. The crowds were limited each day, allowing fans to go places inside Target Field where most fans have never gone before.

Twins Blog: Twins Bloggin’ 2013

In an effort to make every single baseball game matter in my life, I joined three fantasy baseball leagues this season. My allegiance will and always will remain with the Minnesota Twins but sometimes the Twins aren’t playing and other teams are. Being a Fantasy Baseball Manager is my favorite, least paying part-time job ever.

Twins Blog: Deflecting Attention

Francisco Liriano was traded to the White Sox. Let’s hope Denard Span doesn’t go to Cleveland or KC. All signs point that he won’t but who knew Delmon Young would be a Tiger?

Twins Blog: Draft Day

Someone asked the question tonight, “why do we care about the draft?” That came after I sent out the Twins press release as “breaking news” about the Twins taking outfielder Byron Buxton as the 2nd pick in the MLB draft Monday night.

Twins Blog: TC’s New Ride

There was no finer pre-game sight than a bear zooming around on a four-wheeler on the floor of the Metrodome. But TC needed something that was as environmentally conscience as Target Field yet still fun to ride.

Twins Blog: The Music of the MLB

My heart sank when I saw and heard about THE John Williams composing music for the Boston BoSux and Fenway Park’s 100th Anniversary. It felt wrong.

MLB wanted to do something different this year with the season opener. It was a game to be played hours in the future against the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics while exposing MLB Baseball to new fans a half a world away.

Everyone knows this is the month of madness for sports fans. This is when we spend hours sitting in front of our computers, TV’s and guidebooks. This month determines how the next half-year plays out…in fantasyland.

Twins Blog: The Finale

The 2011 Twins season felt like a rekindled summer relationship gone south. You want it all to end by midsummer but you hold on until the fall just so you can go to their cabin one more time.
