    1. Apparently there are at least a handful of Twins players who agree with me that this whole thing is pretty silly.

    2. The thing is, we don't. We can come up with great stuff, like "Country Breakfast," "The Ignitor," "Spaceman," "Toy Cannon," "Captain Video," "Human Rain Delay," "Oil Can," "Sweet Music," "The Penguin," "Wrench," "Chicken Man," and even "Larry."

      It's just that the popular conventions in place for the last fifteen years are tired and unimaginative.

  1. If these first two games are any indication, the Premier League is going to be absolutely bonkers this season

  2. Royce Lewis was promoted to Cedar Rapids. It seems to me that the current administration is more willing to make in-season promotions than the prior administration was.

    1. The record is 40, done by the Rangers in 2014. 31 pitchers ties the Twins for 16th. Three other teams had 31 last year: Dodgers, Marlins, and Rangers. The Mariners have used 35 so far this year. Four teams used 32 last year and one team, the Braves, used 35 last year.

      I would classify it as slightly unusual at this point. It's clear around 30 is becoming common.
