  • Twins Hangouts, June 3: Episode 27

    Don't forget, a special Hangout will happen on Thursday at 6pm to cover the draft.

    It's Tuesday again, so be sure to join Seth and Jeremy at 9 pm for another Hangout. We'll be joined live by Eric Pleiss of Talk2Contact fame. Feel free to ask him lots of questions (like, why the perma-sweater?)

    As far as baseball goes, we'll be talking about the Yankees series, the Brewers series, the minor leagues (as always) and some very impressive pitching lines from the last week.

    There's been some exciting transaction news in the last 24 hours and last, but probably most importantly, the upcoming MLB Draft.

    (The time that is listed is the actual time, so if you want to here the #AskERolf segment, go to the 25 minutes mark.)
    9:00 - Yes, I inadvertently stole the GatG intro. John will take me over his knee on Thursday night.
    9:00 - Joined by Talk2Contact's Eric Pleiss - we covered his life, basically, facial hair and what the heck does "Rolf" mean?
    9:15 - Seth took over the conversation and made it more baseball related. We got the history of Talk2Contact.
    9:25 - #AskERolf
    9:30 - Upcoming plans for ERolf, and then ERolf and Seth talk Twins Baseball.

    10:13 - Buying Eduardo Escobar? Is he the everyday shortstop? Short-term? Long-term?

    10:22 - Twins take 2 of 3 from the Yankees behind three stellar pitching performances.
    10:26 - Willingham and Arcia are back... much to the appreciation of those that like the Twins to score runs.

      There's talk of New Britain moving to Hartford and the Twins recently made a switch from Beloit to Cedar Rapids, but is there a chance that a MiLB team comes to Minnesota, and that team gets affiliated with the Twins?

      "The draft is a crapshoot." A direct quote from a pseudo-famous Twins fan who wears an impressive mustache. The Twins have been linked heavily to Nick Gordon, and it seems that the top 5 guys go in vary orders. Can you imagine a situation where any one of Godon, Kolek, Jackson, Rodon, and Beede are available and the Twins pass for someone else? Is there anyone, aside from Nola who the Twins would be willing to take ahead of the front 5 guys?

      Does E Rolf go by Rolf in real life?

      Is it more correct to boo Aaron Hicks or Joe Mauer?

      Will "rolf dawg" ever have children? if so, what will he name them? Thor? Erik von Liefson? Other strong viking names?

      Would you consider naming your childen after Minnesota Twins greats from yesteryear?

      I was a fan of Kubel for years, but now wonder why he is still with the Twins. I looked at the 40 man roster to find an alternative, and might have answered my own question! IMO, there are no realistic options. Are they trying to make a trade for an OF (Jay?), or just waiting for Fuld to return?

      It happens. John owns us. So if he's got a problem, he'll just pull the plug on our show. #whoops
