I'm just leaving work now. Everything is packed... just have to drop a few things off... I'll be picking up Travis Aune of Travis Twins Talk fame in our hometown, and then driving to the cities, where I'll hopefully be meeting John and others for some dinner tonight... Then tomorrow, Travis and I will be heading to Beloit for games on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I know that the talented Jeremy Nygaard will also be in Beloit for the games on Friday and Saturday. Hopefully we can put together some good information for Twins Daily. I figured starting at thread would be good. Maybe some of you will be in Beloit this weekend. Let me know and be sure to say hi. Maybe some of you will want me to ask certain questions to certain players. Feel free to leave them here. I'll also just update the Twins Daily readers with occasional updates here, so be sure to check back from time to time!!

Really looking forward to this!

Sounds like a fantastic stalking trip. My biggest questions are if Sano passes the eye test at 3b and Rosario at 2b.

Got to the Twin Cities around 8:30 last night. Had a nice dinner with great baseball chat at Park Tavern with Brandon Warne, John Bonnes, Howard Sinker and Phil Miller. Just got about 6 hours of sleep and hope to leave Chanhassen by 7 to miss 494s traffic. Should be in Beloit by early afternoon!

Last night I thought you were dreaming when talking about an early start. Congrats.

Wow, with so much blogging talent in Beloit this weekend, maybe I should skip my regular Saturday poker tournament and buzz up there. Maybe some of that writing talent would rub off! It may also be the last/best time to catch the Twins prospects in Beloit (just in case that PDC isn't renewed). Going to have to ponder that idea.

John, the goal was to leave at 7, and we left by 6:50!! Leisurely drive over though, so that's good. Even with a few stops, we were here in less than 6 hours. Checked in to the hotel now, and will head over to the ballpark in a couple of hours for batting practice. Looking forward to the four games. HOpefully the weather holds up. It was 91 degrees here. Air conditioning is my friend!

Jim Crikket - Come on up! it'd be fun to see you again, and hang out and watch a ball game!

yeah it's been brutal hot this summer. I live in Indy and it's been a while where I've seen this many 90+ degree days and 100+ degree days.

It was really hot, but honestly, once the sun went down, it was really comfortable last night.

By the way, I'll be posting a Day 1 blog shortly. Fun ninth inning last night. And several observations from BP and such.

It was another very hot day in Beloit on Friday. Not a lot to do. Did a little shopping in the morning. Applebees is always so good. Went there for lunch and I certainly recommend that Sizzling N'allins Skillet!! As we were driving over to the ball park before batting practice, the temperature showed 102 degrees on my car! But, the bank's said "just" 95. It was really hot. The Snappers were doing a lot of work on the field, taking infield, working on situational defense. I love that stuff. All before a long round of infield. The game wasn't as dramatic as the night before, but that's because Matt Tomshaw was terrific and the bats came up big, especially in a five-run 7th. Went back to Applebees after the game with a group that included Jeremy Nygaard, AJ Pettersen, Josh Pettersen (AJ's brother) and Dallas Gallant. That was a lot of fun, watching the Olympics and telling stories. Gotta admit, when my head hit the pillow last night, I was out!!

Day 3 today... I b elieve we'll have some lunch and Jersey's and get back out to the ball park. They've played Kane County the last two nights. Now they'll be playing Wisconsin (the Brewers affiliate). It's a fireworks game tonight, which means there should be some people there... Howeer, there is also talk of thunderstorms... That would likely mean two games on Sunday!
