Quick Update today before getting to the FB Picks. If you missed last night’s posting on a Rumor I wish could be true, click here (or slide down this page).
· First thing today, Congratulations to Grant Balfour and the Tampa Bay Rays who are on their way to the World Series after defeating the Red Sox four games to one. They will face the Phillies, starting in St. Petersburg. (Oh Wait, that is the kind of paragraph that you shouldn’t write when it is 7-0 Rays, but still only the 7th inning. Oops!)
· At Twinkie Town, we are now running a Prospect Run-Off between Deolis Guerra and Luke Hughes for the Twins #9 prospect. The vote is close, so be sure to weigh in. Later on Friday, we will start the vote for Prospect #10, or #11.
· It was a busy day for Andrew Kneeland as he also posted a Q&A with Eli Tintor.
· Check out another Twins blog, this one called Memories of the Minnesota Twins. It started out very strong with an Interview with Mike Pagliarulo about the 1991 Season. He then took a look at Kirby Puckett in 1992. The plan for that site is to provide a forum for Twins fans to share and exchange stories on the Twins (or Senators). The author is looking for people to share their stories on the site. If you’re interested, check out the site and then send an e-mail here to tell your Twins Story.
