You've already written off Ian Stewart?

Funny you mention Stewart. He was in a Rockies highlight from a few years back and I noticed that he held his hands differently on the bat. Not the bat is more...across...his fingers than his fingers around the bat. The highlight showed he was more around the bat. Maybe that is confusing:

In the old highlight his fingers were perpendicular to the bat whereas now his bat is more diagonal across his fingers. It seems like this grip would cost him bat speed and bat control.

I've always kinda had a soft spot for the Twins... because of the TC on their hats, really.

Few reasons I'm tuning in tonight:

1) Never heard of PJ Walters. That means he sucks, right?
2) Aren't the Twins supposed to suck too?
3) Trevor Plouffe is on my fantasy team.
4) Target Field.
5) Soriano is going to homer tonight. (calling it.)
6) It helps me procrastinate packing.
