  • Twins Hangouts: Tuesday, June 17

    Oh, it's going to be a good one on Tuesday night!

    Seth and Jeremy are going to be joined live by John Manuel (of Baseball America fame) and Jim Crikket/Steve Buhr (of Knuckleballs Blog fame) on the newest edition of Twins Hangouts.

    Miss an episode? Well, they're all available on our webpage and iTunes.

    There is plenty to discuss, like the draft (that's why John is coming on) and the first half of the minor-league season (Boom! Here's Steve.)

    There's also the Twins. We obviously need to cover Trevor Plouffe's injury and the recall of Pedro Florimon. But we're looking straight into the face of a pitching "situation" and I have a feeling that people aren't going to be happy about it.

    Hangout run-down:
    0:00 - We're back
    0:05 - Pino a little bit...
    0:06 - John Manuel!!!
    0:37 - Draft recap
    0:38 - Steve Buhr - TMI
    0:41 - Steve talks Kernels
    1:20 - Yohan Pino and the roster decisions
    1:35 - Perkins vs Pinto
    1:43 - Jeremy makes a great point, according to Seth
    After Jeremy's good point he forgot to updated this...
    2:03 - Jose Berrios
    2:15 - Preview the Etown/GCL rosters
    2:20 - Viewer questions

    Oh, and if you have questions... leave them below!

      I'm already nervous. Maybe I need to follow my fellow Knuckleballs blogger Eric's lead and start drinking this morning to get ready for tonight.

      I'm excited about Pino's call-up. If he falters, Meyer/May will be only a call away. And i think more than anything, this move is good for all of the pitchers in AAA who are pitching great. let the great migration begin! With that being said, a question: Will James "Just Bombs" Burton still be on the 25-man when the mid-summer classic comes to down? Who replaces him on the roster?

      Sorry I'm joining conversation late - Not sure if you discussed already?

      I'd like to know your thoughts on AB Walkers performance at the All Star Game and HR Derby? I know the derby is just like BP, but how about 3-5 against the north all stars. Are you surprised?

      What will be the fall out with 24 draftees being signed? Who will fall where?

      Tomshaw or Wheeler should get promoted before Berrios in my opinion. Agree or disagree?

      Why is it that the entire FSL fails to have any game video highlights from any games this season? No team shows any highlights. The entire All Star game festivities are word of mouth. Not one video of one hit that weekend. Can you guys explain why?

      Good stuff. Glad that you guys got Manuel to admit that the Twins did not pick best overall, but the guy they wanted in the draft....

      Yup, but that was his opinion... In the Twins minds, I think they got both the best overall and the guy they wanted.
