Today at Twinkie Town, I posted Volume 9 of the Scenes From An Offseason.

It’s also my last regular column for Twinkie Town. After nearly seven years writing for the site, I feel like I’m out of jokes to make; it’s time to focus on other things. I can’t thank my buddy Jesse Lund enough for sticking with me through a thousand goofy columns, and for always being first in line to leave a supportive comment.

Because he is nice, Jesse put together a retrospective of many of the things I’ve written, a lot of which I’ve forgotten about. I’m ashamed to tell you how many times I laughed at myself today.

Anyway, so ends the time of Jon at Twinkie Town. Thanks for reading. It’s been great.

This week at Twinkie Town, Terry Ryan realizes just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

(Of course, in this case, Terry Ryan is a proxy for me. But it wouldn’t make sense if I wrote about me drinking at a bar.)

I actually posted an opinion rather than a joke at Twinkie Town – on Ron Gardenhire’s return as manager. I bet that threw people off.

I have grown fond of the “fake script” pieces that we call Scenes From an Offseason. This week, Ron Gardenhire learns his fate.

The joke in this week’s Twinkie Town column is that nobody wants to watch the Twins. I don’t know why I thought that was noteworthy.

I don’t know much about Rochester manager Gene Glynn. I do know that he’s traveling with the Twins for the rest of the season, which is funny to me, so I wrote something typically nonsensical about it.

Coming in to yesterday’s game against the Angels, the Twins had lost ten in a row at home. Over at Twinkie Town, I invented a few reasons for why this might be.

At Twinkie Town this week, I imagined what the Twins’ goodbye video for Justin Morneau might have sounded like. This also marks the debut of Doumitbot, which I think I should have used before.

Anyway, it makes no sense again this week, so click over, would you?

I can’t in good conscience tell you that this week’s Twinkie Town post makes any sense. If you think you’d like reading an article in which Joe Mauer’s agent pitches a sitcom based on Joe’s life, then I guess you’ll probably like this.

The Twins have made much over the years of doing things the Twins Way, which has mostly boiled down to “strikeouts bad, ground balls good.” Over at Twinkie Town, I wrote out the entire thing, mostly in the voice of former manager Tom Kelly, who seems like fun.
