I would encourage people to listen to last night’s SethSpeaks.net Weekly Twins Podcast. The show began with me rambling (incoherently?) on Twins topics for the first 20 minutes. So, if you want my quick thoughts on the Twins offering Jarrod Washburn a contract, or why I want a 3B or a 2B who will sign for just one year, or concerns in the bullpen and more, please listen. Next, Bill Ferris from The Detroit Tigers Weblog came on and we discussed what is going on with a Tigers team that has lost Edwin Jackson, Brandon Lyon, Placido Polanco, Curtis Granderson and Fernando Rodney. It was a very interesting discussion. Finally, Jack Steal of Fanatic Jack Talks Twins called in and we had a very good discussion. He ranted, I threw some opinions/questions back at him, and we actually ended up going about 10 minutes past the live scheduled time. In fact, be sure to listen in to his Twins Talk podcast tonight at 9:00, and I will be calling in as a guest during the show’s second half.
Soon, we will learn if Bert Blyleven becomes a Hall of Famer, or how short he was of the 75% necessary for induction. Should be interesting to see what happens. I hope he makes it. He absolutely should. But it is very important for him to get at least 70% of the vote to have a shot in future years. As I mentioned the other day, I would vote for Blyleven, Roberto Alomar, Barry Larkin, Mark McGwire and Tim Raines.
