Which Team Should I Root For?

This little gem was designed by a gentleman – Paul Caputo – for a graphic design website.  It’s been passed around baseball circles quite a bit lately so I wonder if we didn’t manage to overwhelm the poor site. He meant it as a sample design document.  However, I think you will all agree that his genius is readily apparent, not to mention a fantastic sense of humor.  Even if you have seen it already, it was so good that I just had to share just in case.  If you are having trouble reading the tiny print – click on the picture to enlarge it!  It’s definitely worth it!  My thanks to Tinger for passing it along to me!

GameChat – ST – Twins @ Rays, 12:05 pm, MLB.tv & am1500

I really have to say that I’m so spoiled being here in the Twin Cities… I get to watch most of my yearly baseball on TV.  For all of you who live with your baseball on the radio all the time? I feel for you.  I don’t HATE it but I gotta say that I feel so.. disenfranchised by listening to the game but not being able to really see what’s going on to form my own opinion.  It does make me cautious about coming to ANY conclusions with confidence.  I just feel like I need to see it with my own eyes.  Considering that there are only 5 games being televised this spring (does anyone else think that this is less than last year?)

At any rate, we’ll see it when we see it and until then, I’m glad for the radio.

Another win for the Twins feels pretty good!  Blackburn looked great out there in his second start so I’m feeling pretty good about the progress of our returning starters – except for Liriano and it’s just too early to make any solid conclusions yet.  Of course, I’m a positive person by nature so I think 3 hitless innings and 2 K’s is solid enough for me right now.  It was fun to hear Parmelee go long even if he got all KO’s in his other AB’s.  All in all, days like today make me look forward to the season even more.
