I’m fairly happy with our ownership, but some of the others are pretty shitty.
Minnesota Twins: Jim Pohlad, a Minneapolis banker, hasn’t had much time to prove himself after inheriting the franchise from his late father, Carl—who was infamous for volunteering to kill off the team in exchange for $150 million from Major League Baseball. That is, until Hennepin County ponied up $350 million for a new stadium. In 2012, the Pohlad clan doled out $644,000 to political causes and candidates, almost all of it to Democrats.
Josh Willingham now has the most homers in baseball since July 29 of last season: JOSH WILLINGHAM 45 Curtis Granderson 42 Ryan Braun 41 Josh Hamilton 41 Jose Bautista 39 Albert Pujols 38 During that year-plus span, Willingham has played 161 total games, hitting .260/.365/.555 with 45 homers, 33 doubles, 82 walks, and 129 RBIs. Mercy.
