On this off-day for the Twins, I don’t have much to say, but I’ve read some interesting blog postings and articles lately and wanted to link to them here.
Firstly, Tim Kurkjian in ESPN Magazine has written a really nice article about Michael Cuddyer and the character he brings to the Minnesota Twins organization.
Next up, I’m not too savvy when it comes to graphs and stats, but I thought this article from the Tenth Inning Stretch blog was an interesting look at how costly Minnesota’s “small ball” game might be.
I thought Nick’s blog posting about why the Twins insist on playing Delmon Young was insightful, but perhaps a little too much ‘conspiracy theory’. It turns out Aaron Gleeman has some similar thoughts about the Carlos Gomez v Delmon Young situation.
This one provided me with a much needed laugh this morning.
Finally, I’m not sure how this one passed me by, but I’m thinking the Cincinnati mayor might be a good choice for the Twins bullpen…
