No swag for you!

My, my, my… Much has happened since my last posting.
Santana throws a gem against the A’s and the Twins win two out of three from Oakland. All this despite scoring only five runs in Oak-town…

Santana threw another gem agains the White Sox and the Twins won three on the South Side! Matt LeCroy led the offense in a couple of the games… Kyle Loshe actually won for the first time in seven starts!!!

Could the offense have finally woken up? Did somebody take over as clubhouse leader? Could we be making a run at the division and or AL wild card??? Could Kyle “the friendly” Loshe be starting to earn his undeserved raise??? Can Matt LeCroy hit higher than his weight? Can the infield finally hit the ball OUT of the infield?

What the **** is going on here? I stopped wearing Twins’ swag after the August 13 loss at Oakland. Could it be the team’s turn around is somehow being helped by my wearing shirts other than those associated with the Twins???

Whatever it is, I’m not complaining. I won’t wear Twins’ swag until further notice even though I have two new pieces on the way from and an authentic Santana alternate away jersey on the way from the Twins (DAP to Patrick Klinger).

Before I get too **** excited about anything, let me see what happens when we face the Mariners at the Dome.



Hi D.C., recommend dusting off your swag … the Twins are on a tear! Six in a row after last night’s (Friday, 8/20) win. This is such a streaky team, it’s hard to guess what to expect next. I think the Twinkies are in a good position to make a Wild Card run, though. They’ve gained a lot of ground over the past week. Go Twins!

I want to make it to the World Series. I want to cut a strip of grass during the World Series to promote yard safety awareness.

I present to you Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) – a yard safety super hero. About a year ago, I had a lawn mower accident that resulted in the partial amputation of my left foot. Consequently, I have been an advocate and promoter of yard safety, with the goal to prevent these outdoor power equipment accidents from happening to other people.

Furthermore, I have been a renaissance yardman, utilizing various art forms to communicate my safety message. I have approached Major League Baseball about the possibility of dedicating one day of the MLB season as Yard Safety Awareness Day. Each, there are about 400,000 individuals who experience lawn mower and garden-tool-related accidents, often times resulting in severe and life-altering outcomes. Since baseball is America’s pastime and often played on natural turf, I ask for your assistance and consideration to facilitate this humanitarian idea.
