Embracing The Big Market Philosophy

2

All this talk of trade talk has been interesting. Move Liriano. Trade Span. Dump Morneau. It seems to me like the best move is to become a buyer. Do what bigger market teams are supposed to do. SPEND THE MONEY. Why did we build this fancy new stadium to remain true to our small market sensibilities? To read more, check out the link. I just believe that the Twins would be better making a bold move, getting one of stud SPs to anchor the staff for the next few years.

The Twins Obit?

Interesting take from Grantland's Jonah Keri. He is, I think, a Twins' admirer. But, he certainly does not pull any punches in this piece. Still, his bluntness is also a bit of a scary wake-up call. We really need to do well in the draft this year.

Donald Driver's Value

It appears DD will be a member of the 2012 Packers. Many of us thought he had played his last game. But, keeping him onboard is the right move. He's a leader and mentor for the young players we are...

TT rarely keeps a player one-year too long. But in this instance, it was the right move.

Over/Under at 12

Packers over/under in season wins is set at 12. I know it's way too early, but Vegas knows the NFL season never ends. The Pack went 15-1 with an abysmal defense, which just got a huge infuse of...

Why over 12 wins is not a given, even for the Packers

+

Vegas is banking on us thinking: The Packers just went 15-1 with a putrid defense, which just got a huge infuse of talent; the over is the play, right? Not that easy - even for an Aaron Rodgers led squad.

Twinkies/Crew Preview

3

Nothing like a little home cooking against the worst team in baseball to try to jump start a winning streak!! Though, the Twinks do have a bit of momentum and their young players are performing. Going to need good performances from Yo and Greinke and need our young guys to do what are capable of doing!! This rivalry is always fun!!

Twins/Brewers Preview

+

The youth movement is in full swing for the Twinks. We actually might be seeing some results (think Diamond, Walters, and Doze). If the offense keeps clicking, could be a fun one this weekend with Milwaukee!!

Maturation of Ax Man

Guy is just a dude. No getting around it. He has dominated for the past three years and unless you are from or live in the Midwest, you likely have no idea who he is. Here's hoping he keeps it going!! Sure is fun to watch.

#KeepTheFaith

Mr. Dave St. Peter tweeted that Twins fans should just #KeepTheFaith. Is he asking too much? Isn't Twins nation entitled to some evidence that the current plan is going to be a successful one? Or even simpler, that there is a plan at all?

Borrow the Nats' strategy

There was a great article in a recent SI discussing the rise of the Washington Nationals: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1197607/index.htm?eref=mySI It seems like the...

2012 NFL Draft: Act Three

+

Overall Rounds 4 through 7 seemed to go really well. Not only did Schemin' get players that can contribute this year, but, he also added picks to next year's bounty. All in all, a pretty good finish to the 2012 NFL Draft

Trading Up Worked Out

As if his evil step-brother took over, TT traded UP three times in the draft. And all three trades seem to have landed quality players. Jerel Worthy was a great player to trade up for and Hayward...

Day 3 Review

TT did a good job of getting quality and speedy players on defense. And, TT trade-raped The Hoodie, again. Read how and more here.

Missed Opportunity

After what I thought was a very successful day one, I think Spielman missed an opportunity to move up just a few picks to make sure you got the right CB. As the draft fell, both Hayward and Johnson...

Day 2 Review

+

We review day 2 of the draft. Did Spielman miss an opportunity to get the right guy by waiting too long? Robinson has the skills, but is he the right guy for a cover-2?

Is TT still manning this draft?

Because the Packers moved up not once, but twice, in the second round to grab two players that seem to be perfect fits for what we need. I begged for this to happen yesterday and was thrilled to...

2nd Day Review

TT got away from his M.O. and traded up twice in the second round to grab two players that fill voids in the defense. Could the defense return to elite status with these picks?

Shrewd Moves

Spielman was savvy tonight. Getting multiple picks from the Browns only to move back one-spot and select the same player they would have taken was great. Then, the Vikes stuck to their guns and...

1st Day Review / 2nd Day Preview

Vikes were very shrewd in their maneuverings in Round 1. Two great selections. We review those selections and preview Friday night's action.

Was Perry the right selection?

Nick Perry undoubtedly has superior athleticism and pure talent. But, am I the only one that was hoping we selected Courtney Upshaw instead? Upshaw played OLB in a 3-4 defense in college. That...

1st Day Review / 2nd Day Preview

Nick Perry is undoubtedly a superior talent at a position of dire need. But there is some cause for concern. We explain why and preview Friday night's fun.

Statistical Proof TT is a Great Drafter

Here's a story breaking down the hit percentage of TT's drafts and rated each player. It's a thorough breakdown, and a unique take leading up to the draft.

Trading Up...

I really think there is a chance TT moves up in either the 1st or 2nd rds. With 10 picks (I think), TT has plenty of ammunition to move up. And we don't need 10 new rookies. A first round trade...

A Thousand Apologies And A Hearty Hello

Brewers did not get off to the start we all envisioned. Losing the opening home series to the hated red-birds is not fun. Yo got off to a rough start, but he typically has these type of outings at...
