Silva

Lavelle E. Neal II writes a good piece on the issue of Carlos Silva.

There are times when pitchers just plain lose their mental edge and never get it back. I think that is what has happened to Silva. Don't feel sorry for him, he has a guaranteed $4.5 million contract for this year. He should be set for life whether or not he gets his edge back.

Twins blogs

In addition to the Star Tribune's excellent coverage of the Twins, I have been reading some of the weblogs that have popped up in the past few months.

Howard Sinker used to cover the Twins for the Tribune, and has now moved on to academics, but he has returned as a fan to register his commentary.

Joe Christenson is a good writer who covers the national baseball scene for the Trib.
