November 2006


Alright, so I’ve finally decided that the schedule (or lack thereof) that I’m on for this blog does not work at all. I’m way too inconsistent and I show no reliability. Please cut me some slack, as it’s my first offseason. However, I’ve decided that from now on, I will make a post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Nothing else in between unless it’s a major signing involving the Twins. (more…)

There have been numerous articles written in the past couple days discussing Justin Morneau as MVP and Derek Jeter as first loser. I can’t tell if the following writers are Yankee fans, Jeter lovers, Twin haters, Morneau bashers, or plain confused. (more…)

The difference maker was in the third, when the Wild didn’t score any and the Predators squeaked one in to get the win. Goalie Manny Fernandez started his 13th consecutive game, tying a career high.
