So now is a perfect time to take a look at some of the moves that the Twins can make this winter to put themselves right back in the playoff hunt in 2018. The obvious focus for the Twins this offseason should be the same as it has been for that past decade, GET BETTER PITCHING!

New Taylor and I Are Back On; Reviewing the Singles From “Reputation”

reputation

Once upon a time when everyday was a fairy tale, I didn’t listen to Taylor Swift music. I owned the persona of music snob asshole very convincingly and took the role even more seriously than that. New U2 bores the hell out of me (still so pissed Apple invaded my iTunes library with Songs of Innocence. So pissed).  Coldplay makes the worst music ever.  Taylor writes the same thing but plays it in different keys, mostly happy major keys where rainbows dot the skies and kittens prance happily down roads…

Gophers Men’s Basketball Ranked 15th in Preseason Polls

Gophers

Fifteenth, huh? Does this mean the Sweet Sixteen is a lock? I’m pretty sure that’s how this works. Go ahead and circle March 22nd/23rd 2018 on your calendar. If the Associated Press or Coaches Poll know what the hell they’re talking about, that’s when Gophers Men’s Basketball will end their season. You can’t be fifteenth and reach the Elite Eight. It’s simple math.

Wolves with Juan: OT Victory over the Miami Mafia

Jimmy Butler

After a sluggish start on Monday night, the Timberwolves needed bonus basketball to take down the Heat. The slow start in Miami is a staple for most NBA teams. It’s tough to beat that South Beach nightlife. As a result, there is a process to sweating out all of the related toxins acquired the prior evening. It’s science. For MN, this process lasted until halfway through the second quarter.   Timberwolves 125, Heat 122   Before I talk about Miami’s Center, a quick rant about ours. Karl Anthony Towns finished…

Finnish Hands – WARNING – Graphic Content Inside

Koivu

Three games into a nine-game home stand, the Minnesota Wild Hockey Club righted the ship after wins against the New York Fishsticks (6-4) and Pittsburgh Flightless Birds (2-1). The season isn’t over, the Stanley Cup is back on, we aren’t Loserville USA and Parise isn’t the real captain. I’ll come back to that in a second. Against the Isles, Minnesota staked out an early three goal lead in the first then traded goal for goal throughout the second and third. This game also included two shorthanded goals, including rookie Luke…

It’s Time to Stop Complaining About Juiced Baseballs

“It’s a deep fly ball, back at the wall, and it is GONE!” If you have been watching any of this year’s World Series that is a phrase you have heard Joe Buck say a lot recently, 22 times in fact, which is already a World Series record. This has helped create two of the most exciting games that have ever been played in the history of baseball. However, the underlying story of this entire World Series has been, are the baseballs juiced? Now if you follow baseball year-round, you…
