More Links, and Podcasts!

Good morning, everyone! Here is a good example of how exhausted I’ve been… last night, I hosted the Live Twins Chat here, and about 90 minutes into it, I fell asleep on the couch. I woke up and answered a couple more questions before calling it a day! So I apologize for the abbreviated blog today, but here are a couple of things for you to peruse:

Alright, that is it for today. I will be back, probably, with my final posting of the 2009 year tomorrow. Unless, of course, there is any Twins news. Please feel free to discuss here.

    I have a question. This question concerns Target Field. Assuming you have all the details on the length of the field the players will use. Target field falls into one of these category’s. A pitcher friendly park and a hitter friendly park. Now a pitcher friendly park could be good news for guys like Scott Baker, Slowey, Blackburn, Perkins that are flyball pitchers(Maybe not so with Blackburn so much but he does have his days)Now explain these terms from a pitching point of view. will this new park be a blessing for our pitchers or a curse and feel free to use weather conditions as well….

      Having been on a tour of the park, there is NO foul territory in this park. Watch out, Mauer might hit .450 in his final year in Minnesota, but that also means guys like Mitch Maier of the Royals will probably hit about .330.

      The coolest part of the park in terms of the field is in right field the seats jut out over the right field wall. When I was there the guy giving us the tour said in theory Cuddyer could catch a ball under the awning of the seats.

    I’m with you 200%. I’d love to acquire Tejeda.

    @ Mark: From memory, I heard that Target Field will have very little foul territory. The pitching staff (whoever said this specifically mentioned Scott Baker) is not getting any help because of this.

    I think it’s a given that as soon as the Twins sign Mauer to an extension that they will start shopping Morales. Do you agree, have you heard any rumors about this?

    With Ramos waiting in the wings, and what they think they will get out of him (assuming his injury isn’t anything that will hold him back long-term; I haven’t heard an update on him) it seems to make complete sense to ship Morales off somewhere.

    What are your thoughts? Am I way off base here?

    MLBTR said the Mariners are looking at Liriano. Apparently the FO is considering moving some of our excess pitchers.
