Since Friday, I have posted two blog entries. The first was about Kyle Gibsonís complete game, one-hit shutout. The second was highlighted by the no-hitter of Dan Osterbrock. The two Twins minor league pitchers were the two guests on last nightís SethSpeaks.net Weekly Minnesota Twins podcast. The show was so much fun. Talking to those pitchers about what was going through their minds, what pitches were working, how the defense was playing behind them and much more. It was fun asking Osterbrock when he realized he had a perfect game, what went through his mind when he lost it and how he responded. It was also fun to talk about what the pitchersí goals are for the remainder of the season. In the first part of the show, we discussed all of the Twins minor league scores and highlights. I also answered questions on the Twins, from Wilson Ramos to Anthony Slama, Jesse Crain, Pat Neshek and more. It was a really good show. There was a good presence in the chat room, and it was a lot of fun. Hopefully you can listen to it. If you have never listened to a podcast, take some time to listen to this one for all the information you normally read here, and much more. Get to know a couple more Twins prosects.
On Monday at 3:00, I will be on Fox9.comís, Sports on Demand. Iím sure we will be talking about primarily Twins subjects, but possibly much more as well. So again, if you have a chance, you can watch that live online at myfox9.com, or later on the Sports on Demand page.
Finally, John Sickels of Minor League Ball asked me to write an article for him on some Twins Prospects that are under the radar. So, I did. Thank you to John for posting it, and to MLB Trade Rumors for linking to it. †
And finally, if you happen to get to one of the Twins/Tigers games this week at Target Field, be sure to pick up your copy of the scorecard. I wrote the Twins half of the Dugout Splinters for this series, so check that. Also, TwinsCentric wrote a big chunk of the Twins Yearbook. I got a copy and it is very cool to see that. Finally, the next TwinsCentric Viewing Party is on May 15th at Majors in Bloomington.
