Twins, under new manager Paul Molitor seem to be assembling a great bench staff, including the hire as pitching coach of Neil Allen of TB Rays, and who helped guide the Rays' great arms.  They also are on the way to signing a Korean pitcher.  Their previous Asian signing bombed.

325. I do not really begrudge the players making the money: better them than Fox, Blockbuster Pizza or whoever owns the team, et al. But it would be cool if someone like this said "Thanks for the vote of confidence, and trust me, you're on the hook for the full amount, but I now pledge the last quarter of a billion to fight hunger" or whatever. Because holy shit that would still leave him with 75 million to get by on. And set a good precedent that people can support.

Jose Canseco's reattached finger falls off during poker tournament

 By Mark Townsend 15 hours ago
The saga of Jose Canseco's finger — yes, the finger he recently shot off and had surgically reattached — has apparently taken another equally tragic and squeamish turn.

While participating in a poker tournament on Thursday night, Canseco claims the finger just fell off, and he has the witnesses to back him up. He even says one person was taking video when it happened.

Here are the bizarre details, as only Canseco himself can tell them.

Dam I was playing in a poker tournament last night and something crazy happened to my finger that I shot off and they put back on.
— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014

I knew something crazy was going to happen with this dam finger cause it felt like it was falling off.
— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014

Ok well I might as well tell you .I was playing in a poker tournament last night and my finger fell off .someone took a video of it.
— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014

My finger should have been amputated from the beginning. It was very loose with no bone to connect it.it was also smelling really bad.
— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014

This guy called my agent and sold him the video.of my finger falling off .it looks kinda funny.lol
— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014

Dammm I thought the guy was funny meaning kidding just saw the video .OMG
— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014

Canseco was attempting to clean his gun on Oct. 28 when it accidentally fired and took his finger off in the process. He was hoping to keep the finger, obviously, but if we're to believe what we're reading he's experienced a setback that will be difficult to overturn.

For the record, we have not seen the video, nor has it been released anywhere to our knowledge. At this point, we're more than happy to take Canseco at his word while awaiting the next chapter in the curious story of his detached digit.

Totally predictable as the safe choice for a team with three years of 90+ losses. Personally, I think the Twins should have chosen a Latino (not simply a bi-lingual Spanish-speaker), as there are lots of young, very talented players coming up, especially from the D.R. and Venezuela, who will need mentoring.  Hopefully Molitor will choose a Latino for one of his coaches. 

Twins and new manager Paul Molitor announced that Rudy Hernandez has been hired to the coaching staff. Great guy.  Great hire.

 That's the second player they've lost that way recently.  Back in 2007 I drove to St Louis to see my first game in their new digs and had to just turn around and come back when the game was canceled.  A reliever named Josh Hancock they had at the time had done himself in in a similar manner early that morning.

The withdrawal really started to set in last night.It got so bad I cleaned the kitchen.

The good thing is I only have to take my recycling bin out to the curb about twice a month,beer bottles add up at an accelerated rate during the season,especially when there are day games followed by night games,followed by West Coast night games.

Matt Williams was an easy choice, no doubt.  That Bochy has been over-looked is an issue for me too.

In other news, Alfonso Soriano, a favorite player of mine to watch, has retired.  Twins had a chance to sign him a dozen years ago or so.  One of a long list of mistakes from their "much lauded front office".   They passed on Vlad G. too, back when he was still in Montreal and could been signed for a couple years at least for relatively modest money.

 
As a Nats fan I think Bochy should have got it and I don't even like him because he did something once( I forget what) that affected my Fantasy team.Bastid.

 John Madden used to get asked who the MOY should be. He said flatly that it's whoever wins the World Series/Super Bowl, no discussion. It's the only yardstick there is. With that in mind, and given the fact that Bochy has won the Series 3 times and each of those seasons, his teams were nothing close to 100%, never considered the favorite by a long shot. He should have won it twice, at least. The wild card cobs it up a little, considering the award is based on regular season results, right?

Don't forget Jack Morris' 1-0, ten inning, 126 pitch, shutout win in game seven, 1991 series, Twins over A-Braves.  Perhaps the "best" World Series game seven ever. It had to be great to outshine the fantastic game six, same series.

Morris went on to break Twins fans' hearts by declaring for free agency four days later. He went to Toronto.   But hey, MN nice and all that.  Morris is now a good, and getting better, analyst on the Twins broadcast team.
