Denard Span joins Kevin Millar and Chris Rose to talk cracking bats, the Miami Heat, his unimpressive basketball skills, his BFF Ben Revere, Joe Mauer’s shampoo commercials, and lots more.
He does not want Matt Capps to take off his shirt, FYI.

Talk about your managerial experience! That’s Tom Kelly, Jim Leyland and Tony La Russa all hanging out at Target Field during BP, and yes, they’re talking about golf!

1973 Tony Oliva Trading Card by Topps
On April 6, 1973, the Minnesota Twins’ Tony Oliva smacked a first-inning, two-run round-tripper off the Oakland Athletics’ Catfish Hunter to become the first designated hitter to hit a home run. Yes, children, there was a time when the DH was unknown and American League pitchers ventured regularly into the batter’s box…
BTW: Please learn how to spell our state’s name, Mr. Topps!

Jim Thome as genuine as they come

ballcapbet:

600! Congrats, Big Jim.

This article by Tim Kurkjian came through at ESPN.com a few short moments after Jim Thome smacked his 600th career home run—a milestone that has been reached only seven times before in the history of the game.

BIG JIM

He is the world’s nicest man,” said Twins closer Joe Nathan. “He’s one of those guys that the hype is so great before you meet him, then he lives up to the hype, and more. When you see him from across the field, you think, ‘He can’t be that nice,’ but he is. He is so genuine. There are other players that will be forgotten when they leave, but he will not be. We will be talking about him for years to come. To me, he’s like [Hall of Famer] Harmon Killebrew. They are one in the same. When you meet both of those guys for the first time, you think, ‘Wow, this is someone that I will be wanting to talk to on a daily basis.’”
