Tonight, starting at 8:00 central time, I will be hosting a special two-hour SethSpeaks.net Weekly Minnesota Twins podcast. In those two hours, we will have somewhere between 10 and 12 guests to discuss what happened in 2010, a little on the offseason, and projecting 2011.
One person who will be traveling and unable to participate in the show tonight is Twins pitcher Jeff Manship, but he did want to participate. He gave me his two most memorable moments of 2010:
“My most memorable experience from last year was the night we won the Central Division. We had just finished our game and everyone was in the clubhouse watching the A’s White Sox game. Going into the 9th the A’s had a good sized lead and Craig Breslow was pitching so a lot of guys knew him from the previous year and were yelling words of encouragement at the TV. Also a lot of champagne bottles had their wire removed from over the cork and a couple bottles popped early before the game was done so everyone was yelling. When the A’s finally won everyone went nuts. It’s been great being a part of two celebrations now, and I don’t even have one full season under my belt.
Another great moment for me personally was my first call-up of the year. It’s always fun having the manager call you into his office to give you the news you’re going up. I was able to experience that five different times last season. I’m guessing I set a record for most calls ups in a season.”
It was definitely an interesting year for Manship and the Twins. And thankfully, it was another great year for Twins fans, full of wins and talking points!
Following the podcast, I will post a look-back at 2010. When you review it on a month-by-month basis, it is a lot of fun. It was an exciting year for the Twins and for Twins fans.
So, be sure to check out the podcast tonight. Several of your favorite bloggers and media members will be on the show, and I’m working to confirm a few Twins and Twins minor league players as well.
