Re: Opponent Recruiting

The 6-8 number seems high to me. I see no reason to have about half the team be non-Minnesotans. I also share the unpopular opinion that having the team primarily made up of MN kids is more important than winning a few extra games. I'm not so sure your opinion is that unpopular. I understand the un...

Re: Opponent Recruiting

Hammy is spot on with this one. The team is always gonna be majority of MN kids, if it takes a potulny or irmen to come in and help push the squad over the top I have zero issues. I just feel like an all-MN team (everyone else be damned) is an outdated way of going about things. Having someone on th...

Man I hate losing to the Brewers and those dumb sconnys worse than any other team. I really hope the NL adopts the DH, Not saying it made a difference this weekend but I think it gives NL teams an advantage more than AL teams get when NL is forced to DH in AL parks.
