  • #Hangout and Talk Twins, Winter Meetings


    The Winter Meetings have come to an end and with that, so will our special edition Google Hangouts. We do have one left, though, and you can watch it here, live at 9pm.


    Wednesday night we talked about potentially adding Pelfrey and/or Arroyo and what it could mean for the starting pitching staff.

    We also discussed Josmil Pinto's shoulder, the signing of a Indy League MVP, the return of former scouts and the future of Liam Hendriks.


    You can also use the links below to find it on iTunes and on YouTube.

    Tuesday night's episode featuring John Bonnes can be seen below.
    MIKE PELFREY!!



    While the Big Pelf took up a too-large segment of our show, it was very entertaining to visibly see John Bonnes's blood pressure go up at the idea of re-signing him. John also talked about TwinsDaily's Winter Meltdown and other current endeavors (not limited to TwinsDaily's re-upping with the Cedar Rapids Kernels).

    We addressed other news of the day - such as the rumored interest in Stephen Drew - and answered random questions. So once you get by the first three minutes of confusion, you're in for a real treat!

    Guestless on a Monday.

    Seth and I spent an hour talking about today's Twins news. Well, it was like 57 minutes of talking about the Twins and four minutes of utter confusion when Jeremy's volume stopped working. We were able to reconnect the old school way - telephone - to complete our discussion and even made some room for the day's newest news: Rajai Davis to the Twins?

    Oh, just another day in the life of a Twins fan.

    Sunday edition:

    Seth and Jeremy were joined by 1500 ESPN/Eyewitness News' Doogie Wolfson as we kicked off our Winter Meetings Edition.

    When it comes to local sports, no one knows it better than Doogie. Doogie suggested the Twins might be busy this week, what positions they may be targeting as well as a few players who the team might be targeting for extensions. He also mentioned one (surprise?) name that may be available in trade talks.

    Drink it all in. Link to YouTube video or Audio-only?

      Gardy's loving it. I would too, it would keep Cletus off the roster anyway.

      Nowhere near the potential as Meyer, but they're good prospects clearly.

      Without digging too much, I'd likely have Smith in the 6-8 range and Wisler in the 9-12 range.

      Thank you , For me 2014 is probally more about getting into 70s win range, and I would love to head into 2015 Knowing we had Meyer, May, Smith ,Wisler and Gibson all pushing for spots in the Rotation.2 of them capible of being #1 type pitchers and the rest slotted for #2-3 range

      LaVelle just posted that the Twins are "in on" Garza and are willing to post for Tanaka. Interesting.

      Arizona is looking to get pitching and they have 2 SS so one could be available. Do you think the Twins could trade Gibson or any of the out of option pitchers and / or other minor leaguers for one of them.
