Took my second Target Field tour Wednesday with the “Save the Met” crew, anti-Dome diehards who failed to derail indoor baseball way back when. Thirty years later, they saw the powers-that-be re-embrace their paradigm — albeit at excessive taxpayer expense that still has founder Julian Loscalzo spitting nails.

For me, the visit was mostly personal recon for an upcoming cheap-seats season-ticket purchase. But it happened to be the day they were installing a really cool version of the classic “Twins Shaking Hands” logo in dead-center.
