Found June 15, 2013 on High Cheez:
The Minnesota Twins have had a ho-hum, go about your business but don't rock the boat type of attitude ever since they opened Target Field.

'Everyday Eddie' touched by Twins Hall of Fame honor

If Eddie’s give name was Eduardo, he would have been in a lot of trouble. 2) Anyone can be a closer. Guardado was an abomination of a starter...
