These are reasonably amusing:

I think the Mauer one is better than the Hunter one.

Actually I thought just the opposite. The look on the kid's face after Hunter smacks the pinata made me laugh out loud. :-D

minnesota twins: our player budget is low, but you should see the salaries of our marketing guys!!!

they've had good commercials for a while... my friend's favorite was always the radio commercial about christian guzman: "na na na na na na na na na na.... na na na na ana na na na na na .... christian guzman... he's so fast he makes the six million dollar man noise when he runs. minnesota twins: get to know 'em!"

i prefer the hunter ad if no for other reason that althogh parody is funny, it's still at the end of the day, unoriginal. and the mauer ad ripped off two commercials: joe greene (obviously) and johnny damon (dhl) from last season. funny, but not inspired.

It could have been a LOT worse. I'm talking Mary Kate and Ashley kind of worse. But then again, they can't give their players enough, how could they pay those two?

That will be one sore pinata tomorrow. :-D

Both were funny, and nice to see some of that. ;-D


Down here in Texas, we get the "Come see the fireworks at Ameriquest field" while highlights of homers are being hit and fireworks are being shot off. We need a new marketing campaign down here. This one is old.

They've got some good ones out again this season. The Joe Nathan, Johan Santana carpool one is hilarious IMO... :-b

The Twins have some really creative people in the marketing department. Their ads I think are actually a reason that the interest in the Twins has improved over the past few years. That, and the fact that team doesn't lose 100 games a season anymore. :-D
