    Yay! for baseball, Boo! for blog-ending. Have a most excellent nine months, and enjoy the Metrodome AC while you still have the chance. Next summer will be sunburn-tastic, I’m thinking.

    By the way, please tell your roommate that the profile on him in the PiPress was the most adorable thing ever created by man or God. And pester him to start a blog, please.


    I have the picture of you and me from Twinsfest for you! I want to see if you could autograph it. Do you know if Glen and Jesse put theirs in their locker? It was so cool seeing you and I’m glad that you remembered me!
    Your Friend,
    Joey Brown

    Hey Kevin,
    thanks for all of the fun posts and actually reading, paying attention to, and responding to the comments. I’m looking forward to baseball season and then having this blog come back and the fun updates from you.


    So sad to be ending the blog. It was fun reading. Wish I had stumbled upon it a little sooner. Definately see you in Chicago this summer. Best of luck for a great season.

    I, too, am sorry to see the blogging end. It was fun to read. I am looking forward to seeing you pitch again this year.

    I just thought of something: if nobody else leaves a comment here this off-season, I’ll be the person who was the first and last to comment on this blog (this off-season). That would be fairly cool. It seemed so long ago that you, Kevin were wondering if anyone would read your first entry this off-season…

    Hey Kevin,

    I know I’m kind of late on the draw here, and I’m not sure if you’ll ever get this, but just like to mention that I’m from Upper Saint Clair, and play baseball on the freshman team. I’ve been a big fan of yours for a while, and have been following you from back home on the computer. I just discovered your blog, but it seems I’m a bit late. Hope you do well this season. Thanks, and hope to talk to you in 9 months.

    -Evan, USCHS


    Okay, scratch that, I guess I should say congrats on the RBI’s (plural) against the Marlins! Wow! I would say that I think you’re playing for the wrong league, you should be in the National League, but then you couldn’t play for the Twins and that would be no good – Nice game!


    Hey Kevin,
    It was really great to meet and talk with you at McCabe’s pub on St. Patty’s! ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoyed the blog and can’t wait for the season!

    I realize that you probably won’t even see this post since it’s supposed to be an off-season blog and all… But today I watched your spring training start against the St. Louis Cardinals on TV. And to see you strike out Albert Pujols TWICE (once in a bases loaded jam) was just a thrill to watch. As a Twins fan and a Kevin Slowey fan, I can sincerely say that I am proud of you. With that start I have made my decision as to who my favorite Twins Starting pitcher is, and without a doubt, it is you, K-Slow.

    I look foreword to seeing you attack the strike zone for many years to come at the Dome and Target Field. (Hopefully in a Twins uniform the whole time)

    Have a great season, Kevin. I look foreword to seeing your blog up and running again in November.


    kevin keep up the pitching im a cubs fan tell the team that they better do better than the sox i hate the sox!!!

    Good luck on the rest of your year. Yours truly Jeff Laufenberg


    Hi! I can’t wait to see your blog up again. I am new on here, and have read ur blogs. I think they are great! I was at the 16 inning game and too bad they lost. I hope your hand feels better soon. I am a twins fan and a forever Slowey fan ๐Ÿ™‚ happy fourth of july and can’t wait to read ur blog come november. have a great season. ๐Ÿ™‚


    ps i made sure that i would have a twins #59 slowey jersey ๐Ÿ™‚ i wouldn’t have any other one (:


    Hey Kevin-I am excited for you to come back to the blog, but in the mean time I look forward to you comin back to play!
    Also, congrats on a great season so far! You are hands down my favorite Twin and even though you won’t see this until the end of the season, I am wishing you the best of luck ๐Ÿ™‚
    Sportin your number at the dome ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope to hear from you when you’re back!


    Hey Kevin,

    I would have loved to email you about this to hear your thoughts, but could not find any other venue through which to reach you. I feel a little more than awkward just leaving this as a comment, but I just really wanted to thank you for sharing your faith with those of us at the Jars of Clay concert after the game the other day. I just finished grad school and am about to take my first real school psychology job and move to Duluth, and am feeling a little shaky about all those changes, but that Bible verse you shared was exactly what I needed to hear at that moment. I keep mulling it over in my mind and am comforted. It is just so amazing to me when serendipitously we experience things like that. I love seeing God at work behind the scenes like that, tugging on our hearts! Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you. For me, it truly was a God moment.

    Take care, Kevin, and good luck with the rest of the season. See you at Twins Fest again next year!


    So I heard today that you may have to have surgery on your wrist… If that is true, I wish you all the best & a speedy full recovery. I was only able to see you pitch one game this season. It was at Wrigley. One of the best games I’ve been to. Great batting by the way! Take care. I hope you will still be at Major’s this Thursday…


    Hey Kevin, I just want to add that Im keepin you in my prayers for a healthy recovery. We all miss ya at the dome! Also, will you be at twins fest again next season?
    Take care,


    Hi Kevin!! So awesome to see you tonight. Thanks for taking the time to talk so indepth with my daughter. She really enjoyed it. She will deffinately be letting you know about her Beagle! I think you topped the list for favorite players. Stalking you through out the night;) Thanks again.

    Hey Kevin,
    I hope you got my get well card that I slipped to Blackburn (he promised he?d send it your way) and that all is going well with your recovery. Best Wishes!


    Kevin Slowey- It is so good to see you out there doing what you love to do. I just heard that you will be getting surgery soon (if not already). I will be praying for your recovery. I haven’t seen your family in a while at church, but you are always in my thoughts! Keep reading that favorite book of yours and keep it close to your heart. Blessings to you and your family. -April Miller (Kits)


    Kevin, I hope that you have been recovering well, and that God is granting you complete recovery!
    Congrats on being part of the most amazing baseball team! ๐Ÿ™‚


    Hi Mr. Slowey,
    My daughter is in love with you and plans on marrying you! She wants to know which days you’ll be at twinsfest this year, figures you’d better meet so you can start the process. If you know the days, could you post them here, please? Thanks, Monte
    PS Jessica’s 22 years old, 5’10, 120 lbs and gorgeous-now you’ll know her when you see her. If you weren’t such a good pitcher, I wouldn’t be giving my blessing, Ha!
