Links of the Day 4/27/06

by Intern Snarky

Twin's fans have been getting some love from former players. Jacque Jones has had a rough transition from the Minnesota nice fans to the people of Chicago- they're booing poor Jacque. He's so sad he can barely swing at terrible pitches. Dougie Mientkiewicz misses it here too.

Forbes released their yearly evaluations of baseball team values (thanks Maury Brown). The Twins' value has increased by 21% since last year, thanks to the Yankees and their mountains of money. Maybe Carl's not so poor after all? If we keep this growth up we will be worth as much as Carl Pohlad in 14 years. It'll only take 69 years for the Twins value to surpasse the national debt. This requires the rock-solid assumption that neither the national debt nor Pohlads' wealth will grow. In 69 years, all we have to do is sell the Twins to China and we'll have this whole debt thing taken care of. No worries mate.

Former Twin and Gopher Dave Winfield was counted among the first for theNCAA baseball hall of fame.

Did you know that the Royals have bloggers?! Hard to believe. I didn't even know they had fans.
After visiting their websites, I don't think I'll ever complain about the Twins again.

Also, if you haven't seen this, you should- Tony Batista is showing his technique for converting the Japanese.
