As I mentioned yesterday, the weather terrorists beat me, thatís for sure. Fearing the 12 to 20 inches of snow that will be hitting central Minnesota later this afternoon, I left the Twin Cities Tuesday night. And now, we just wait. Should be fun! Anyway, still busy on several fronts, so again today, here are just a bunch of links for you to read. Hopefully you enjoy them:
∑ Over the Baggy has a very interesting article called The Evolution of Delmon Young. Itís really well written and includes video to show how he altered his game over the course of the season.
∑ Nick Nelson discusses The Waiting Game. As he says, the market is truly working itself out so far this offseason and the Twins are wise to be patient. Can Twins fans be patient too?
∑ Speaking of Nick, if you want to learn a bunch more about the Twins blogger, be sure to check out Curve for a Strikeís Twins Blogger Get To Know ĎEm on featuring Nick Nelson.
∑ Fanatic Jack thinks that Orlando Cabrera is the best choice for Second Base.
∑ Be sure to continue voting in the Twinkie Town Top 50 Twins prospects. The most current is a run-off between Jeff Manship and BJ Hermsen for Prospect #18.
∑ Finally, be sure to check out and bookmark Schlepping Minnesota Sports, a relatively new blog that covers various sports. Check it out and say hi from me. †
