    Congratulations on the Scott Diamond outing!

    How much more of this do we have to go thru until somebody is held accountable? Every other team can hit it out of Target Field except us. Very Frustrating.

    I’m disappointed by the cameo by Aaron’s mom…John, you should have gotten her to tell at least one embarrassing Aaron story, driving his car, etc. Missed opportunity.

    Second point, Aaron, your point about the Twins lacking a plan for handling the young players (reacting to weeks/days of performance, accelerating some while going excruciatingly slow with others) was EXCELLENT…one of your best points in years of excellent points.

    Finally, John, what happened to the “Aaaaaaaand, welcome!”. Lackluster, and that was becoming a “thing.”. Since the radio gig is fairly new, you need to make sure those sorts of quirks (like Aaron talking about a lack of a car/having people drive him) should become solid memes.

    Anyway, good work, and congratulations on your deserved success. I continue to believe that you should be sending your resume to the Twins on a regular basis, as you have makings of an excellent Twins GM, Aaron.
