Can't wait until Loria fires him after 2 seasons and has 3 managers on his payroll in 2015.

When Redmond was with the Twins, he was Nick Punto before Nick Punto was Nick Punto. Killed the Sox. He's supposed to be quite the character -- advocated taking naked batting practice to bust out of a slump.

I remember a game here at the Cell where Thome's backswing nicked him on the head and he was bleeding out of his head, stopped the game for a while.

"I give you five minutes when we get there. Anything happens in that five minutes and I'm yours. No matter what. Anything a minute on either side of that and you're on your own. I don't sit in while you're running it down. I don't carry a gun. I drive."

He also owned Beuhrle if I'm not mistaken. Now he'll be his manager. I wonder if he has any insight as to why he was able to light him up.

I was at that game. Because Mauer was the DH, the Twins' pitcher had to bat in the game (the incident took place in the First Inning, so we're talking 8 innings without a DH).

Since it was 2007, the Twins had no trouble beating the Sox that day despite not having a DH.

This is why I never advocated having AJ be the DH except in September when there was a real Catcher (Sept. call-up) on the bench in case of an injury to Flowers. During the other parts of the season, the "emergency" backup Catcher was usually someone who last played the position in the 1990's.

‎This just in from the newswires: The Anti-Trust Division of the US Department of Justice has announced that whenever Sale take The Bump, it is unfair competition in violation of various federal and state laws. However, he is not being prosecuted because it is so ****in awesome to watch him do his craft.
