    Opening day. No Beatles?

  • Michael Mrozak

    Like Adam S, I was expecting the Beatles this morning. Doesn’t feel like Opening Day without “Here Comes the Sun”.

      Thirded. The podcast is nice and all, but Aaron’s a great writer. It’s either telling of how non-existent the interest is in this 2014 team or how much higher of a priority the audible medium has gotten over the writing for Aaron. Both probably. Both completely understandable.

    Where’s the tradition gleeman!

  • Dave

    My bad.

    I’m sure it’s a sign of the times, but I, too, was expecting the same of what had me coming back for years: a Twins related write up. I’m sure it doesn’t show as there are probably always new followers, but since the beginning of last season, I’ve found myself coming back here less and less, just because I know there won’t be what built this site: a Twins related write up. The write ups have been replaced by podcast and links (though those were always there), spaced out, and a lot of the material is recycled (same lines over and over). Maybe harsh and critical, but it’s sad to see my reading days here phasing out.
