Twins 4, Red Sox 2

Here is a request for help from a Twins fan out of state, looking for someone to help him acquire a couple of things at the Twins Autograph Party. If you are interested, send me an e-mail and I will put you in contact with this gentleman:

  1. Is there anyone here that is going to (or considering going to) the Twins Autograph Party on Saturday June 20?  I have an item that I would like to get autographed by Harmon Killebrew and Rod Carew, and seeing that I live in Philadelphia I am looking for someone to do the leg-work for me.  I would consider flying in for the day, but since I am out of work at the moment, I won’t even try to explain that frivolous expenditure to my wife.

    My proposal would be to find someone who would be willing to commit to going to the event, and standing in the alumni line (2:30-4:00) to (try to) get the two signatures.  In exchange I would pay the fee for the autograph card, which you could use to get your own autographs during the Current Twins session (12:30-2:00).  I would also pay your driving expenses including parking, plus a reasonable “time and effort” fee, which we will negotiate in advance.  I will send the item to you via FedEx and include a prepaid return envelope, as well.

    So, if anyone is wanting to go but not sure due to cost, maybe we could help each other out. 

    Thanks in advance for any assistance that anyone can provide.

    Seth, do you have inside information on the #22 pick? Seems like he does fit the spot, but with a supplemental pick this year could they wait until then? Personally, would like to see them pick another Crain-Baker-Slowey with that supplemental pick.

    Snappers just can’t get a win, can they? When they get good pitching the hitters go silent. Other games are out of hand by the 3rd or 4th innings. I haven’t seen Santana in their lineup the last couple games. Did he play last night? He is having a phenominal start to this season.

    I wouldn’t reach on a likely 1B who might hit for average — that is, you don’t reach above the 3rd round. If he’s not there then, too bad, so sad.
