You tell 'em Grams.

My Grandma called me this afternoon to ask me why the Twins are so bad.

"I see how bad they are, and I think about how hard it must be for you to watch!"

"Nah. It's not that hard to watch. I mean, it's embarrassing and awkward sometimes. But I push through."

"You love them so much. They should play better for you."

You hear THAT boys? You have officially been shamed by my grandmother. You make her sad.

If that's not enough to make you better at baseball, I don't know what is.

Off-Day Homework.

I know there are a lot of people out there who are not fond of the musical shift at Target Field this season. [Just because we all hated that stupid GB Leighton video, doesn't mean we wanted to dump ALL the local music. Sheesh.]

If you have an opinion about it, here's a good place to voice it (along with the feedback form to send to the Twins).

Or we can all just keep booing the Beiber loudly and hope they get the message that way. Maybe that will work eventually.

And if you do like the change, (ie you have ever said "I simply do not hear enough Black Eyed Peas at professional sporting events, dammit!") let them know that too. And let me know...because I do not actually believe in your existence.

Then go complain about the song you never want to hear again at the ballpark here.

How Bad Are We?

We're currently going through a little bit of a rough patch (much in the same way that the Titanic hit a small bump) right now.

It's less painful if we own the suck. It's almost empowering if we just accept and embrace it, I think.

We know that record-wise, we are the worst team in baseball right now. But just how bad are we?

Let's check the info-graphic.

And there's the silver lining. Goodbye Bandwagon-jumpers, don't let the door hit you on the way out. I hear Colorado is nice this time of year.
