Links 6/5

I had a half written out piece on the Twins' offensive inconsistency, their awful isolated slugging percentage (which is currently lower than the iso. in both 2005 and 2006), but after spending all day reading the great stuff on the web today, I've decided to put it on the back burner for now (don't worry, I'll be revisiting it later) and just provide links today.

And now, after building them up, here are the links:

  • Frequent Batgirl and Section 220 commenter Jim Crikket checks in with a report from Kevin Slowey's debut.
  • So how did Slowey's debut fare in comparison with Twins' Aces from the past (and present)?
  • Ubelmann from Twinkietown looked at Slowey's career projections and found that those fans who are missing Brad Radke are going to really like the kid.
  • Reason #1 why being a paid blogger is worse than doing it for free--you aren't a target for Fire Joe Morgan.
  • Joe Christensen complements his feature on Tony Olivia with even more stories on his blog.
  • Erik Lis on hitting a home run off the highest paid pitcher ever to suffer a groin injury.
  • If you saw the Fresno St. pitcher take a line drive off of his head in the game against the Gophers Sunday night, I'm sure you'll agree with the Bleacher Boys. I'm sure Pat Neshak does.
  • John Sickel held a five round mock draft at his site in preparation for Thursday's draft. Don't forget--they're televising it for the first time this year on ESPN2.
  • What if ESPN had been around the entire century?
  • Wondering how the Twins' current prospects are faring? Seth and Roger both have up their Minor League reports for May.
  • We're gonna win Twins! We're gonna score!
  • Only a few more days until the Side Burned One returns...and he's anxious to be back.
  • No wonder Joe Vavra's such a good hitting coach.
  • And finally, in case you haven't seen it, Bobby Cox' successor.
