Harmonic Convergence: Bat-Girl and TFIM

At 11:00AM today, I wrote the following paragraph:

"I miss Bat-Girl's blog. She'd have had lots of fun with the Twins' prosaic off-season acquisitions, Craig Monroe and Delmon Young. She'd have had a fitting farewell for Jason 'Yawn' Bartlett. The current crop of Twins bloggers cannot come close to matching Bat-Girl's zaniness* or poignancy."

Just before posting it, I checked Bat-Girl's long-defunct blog and found out that, as of a few days ago, Bat-Girl's back! Sort of! Not the regular blog, but a guest shot on MN Gameday. On November 29, she did a Lego re-enactment of Delmon Young's first day as a Twin. Today, she has a fantasy text message exchange between Theo Epstein and Twins new GM Bill Smith. You owe it to yourself to check it out here.

This off-season just took a turn for the better! (Even though the Mitchell report is being released today.)

* The folks over at Alright, Hamilton! came close this week with an illustrated post declaring that Craig Monroe will be the 2008 MVP. Nicely done, boys.

Ah, Batgirl! There were many times when she was absolutely the best thing about the Minnesota Twins.
