    Marnie, I have listened to your post-game interviews with Twins players and I frequently feel so bad for the Spanish speaking game stars. The questions leave them with awkward moments trying to piece together a pat answer.

    If you spoke Spanish and could interpret an interesting response or have an interpreter on hand to help the players would be able to actually reflect intelligently about the game.
