Talking Twins

Plenty of discussion for those of you, sitting at work, needing to listen to some good ol’ Twins talk.

  • On last night’s Weekly Minnesota Twins Podcast, we talked about several Twins topics. The highlight was a fun interview with Minnesota native, former Gophers, and Twins prospect Cole DeVries. It was fun to talk about his terrific 2011 season in New Britain, Rochester and in the Arizona Fall League. We had a frank discussion on the upcoming Rule 5 draft and much more. Also, be sure to listen to the podcast. Fanatic Jack joined for the last bit to discuss some Twins topics and made an announcement:
  • Fanatic Jack is back on BlogTalkRadio. He’ll be hosting his return show tonight at 9:00. And the announcement is that Jack and I will be hosting shows under this same account. You’ll still have the Weekly Minnesota Twins podcast ,but the link to that show will be changing. The Reason? We have gone together and signed up for BlogTalkRadio’s Premium package. What does that mean? Instead of me hosting 30 minute shows starting at 10:00, we can do 1 or 2 hour shows including at times. Frankly, the ½ hour shows this past year have been a little frustrating. If I want to have a guest or two, it’s hard to get too in-depth on topics. So, I think this is a good thing. Of course, the Premium service isn’t free, so if anyone wants to sponsor a show, just let one of us know. And, keep tuned, we hope that there will be more than two shows. During the season, Twins Minor League Weekly will be able to return to a full-hour show, and that is a good thing.
  • There is also a new Gleeman and the Geek episode in which they discuss a bunch of Twins discussions and I find myself disagreeing with the Twins Geek on pretty much everything… but that’s normal!  Ha!

Feel free to comment.

    If the Twins are entitled to a draft pick w/o offering arb to Capps, do not sign him.

    Get a different cheap closer and take the pick.

    Is there any way to find out who is on the current 38 man AAA reserve roster at Rochester?

    I assume your disagreement is with the apparent despising of Capps and the undervaluing (in my view) of Doumit? I agree with the Geek on Capps, but certainly not on Doumit. The Twins *should* add a total of 5 position players/DHs to their roster, and Doumit doesn’t make it so. In fact, he makes 4 position players added palatable to me (D-Lee and Andruw Jones or Jonny Gomes). That the Twins may add only one more position player (???–they cannot be done, right?) is the problem.

    Anyway, I am about to listen to your podcast now . . .
