Game Recaps on Twins Daily?
Something I would love to see on this site is a section where we could go to read a detailed recap on every game played by a Twins affiliate, and some stories/profiles on Twins minor leaguers. I know this stuff is available and scattered elsewhere, but I'd love to see Twins Daily as a one-stop shop. Thoughts guys?

I'll let Seth reply, because I know he's thought about this a lot more than I have.
I will say this - just about anything like that is possible if it is a team effort. That is, if we organized members outside of Seth, Nick, Parker and I to bring that kind of information together consistently. That's really what we're trying to establish here: a community that can organize and do amazing things without it all being controlled centrally.

Great question! I certainly plan on writing game updates and highlights from all Twins minor league games. Most likely, it'll be in one blog each night. I hope to also do player stories throughout the season as well. I love following the Twins minor league system and hope to bring that full to this site as well.

I can do Beloit on a daily basis, get to most of the home games as well as 40% of road games, also take a lot of pictures at the games. Photos can be seen in my signature, also posted a blog post that I would be doing that for this year.

Right on, righty8383....I will be proposing a Beloit trip as well. The Snappers are going to be stacked.

Boer-(if he is moved to starter)
Kepler- by June
Javier Baez- this is a reach
Great Lakes Loons
Dwight Smith JR
Mikie Mahtook- if he has a hot start I don’t expect him to be in BG for long
West Michigan-Similar to the Brewers farm system, really have only 1 or 2 potential Blue Chip prospects to develop.

Thanks for the offer. I have my son sold on a trip to Beloit when the Twins are out of town in may. I have a feeling some of those prospects will get a promotion before the summer is over, so it is best to catch them early in the season.

Thank you for shating all that JT. I was thinking a Sunday Monday. My days off are Monday and Tuesday so this way I would only have to use one vacation day(Sunday). The 3rd and 4th look good. I was also thinking the 10th and 11th. I noticed they play the Wisconsing Timber Rattlers in Appleton which is an even shorter drive away from the Twin Cities.

I just signed up for the Twins Train trip to Quad Cities and Beloit (June 1-3)... It's one Snappers game in the cool Quad Cities Stadium and one game in Beloit. Should be fun to experience. Check out the trip here: http://www.twins-train.com/. Hopefully we can get a bunch of Twins Daily folks on the Twins Train!

Minor League Reports
Having daily updates of all of the minor league teams would be great. I always went to Seth's site first during the season looking for updates. If there was nothing there, I would have to go to each of the minor league team's websites and find the box score. Any and all minor league coverage will be appreciated.
