Hi folks, my name is Chris Dall, and I’m a producer on MPR’s Midmorning program. We don’t really talk a lot of baseball on the show, so I’m excited to have an outlet for the topic that occupies most of my thoughts when I’m not working, sleeping, or spending time with my family. I’ll start by noting that I will be merely trying lighten the load for Mr. Zingler, who’s doing a terrific job and giving us some great inside access to Twins players and the organization. I can only hope to add as much information and insight as he has. And as a non-native Minnesotan, I’ve only become a Twins follower within the past few years, so I’m still in the process of familiarizing myself with the team. Truth be told, I’m a lifelong New York Mets fan, and the Metropolitans will always be first in my heart. And whereas I have little ability to be objective when it comes to the Mets, I think I’ll be able to analyze the Twins with a more journalistic eye. So I’ll be writing about the Twins, but also about the league in general. I’m not a stat head, and I have no idea what the formula is for runs created, but I will be making a concerted effort to learn more about the Jamesian method as the season progresses. I’m looking forward to spending some time in the bleachers.
