Offseason Handbook Updates: Cover and Guest Authors
Above, you're seeing the official front cover to the Twins Daily Offseason Handbook 2019, designed by Twins Daily's talented Brock Beauchamp. This visual reflects the larger realities weighing on the club this offseason – a few players took steps forward in 2018 to solidify themselves as building blocks, but many more endured tumultuous years, fading their shine and casting doubt on their future.
It's a challenging landscape for the front office to navigate, with weighty decisions left and right. You'll get a firsthand look at them as you dive into the Handbook, which lays out the roster makeup, organizational depth, arbitration scenarios, free agent options, trade targets and more.
To help you on your way, we've enlisted several brilliant writers – each with unique expertise and perspective regarding the Twins – to provide guidance, analysis, and context as you explore this offseason of uncertainty.
We are proud to announce the 2019 Offseason Handbook will feature stories from the following guest authors (in addition to the core Twins Daily team of John Bonnes, Tom Froemming, Parker Hageman, Seth Stohs and myself):
- Mike Berardino, Twins beat writer for Pioneer Press (2013-18)
- Rhett Bollinger, Twins beat writer for MLB.com
- Aaron Gleeman, editor-in-chief at BaseballProspectus.com
- Phil Miller, Twins beat writer for Star Tribune
- RandBall's Stu, contributor at TwinkieTown.com
- Patrick Reusse, longtime columnist for Star Tribune
Given the spirit of this product, I have no earthly idea why not.
The Offseason Handbook is all about letting readers put together their own dream teams, so why not recruit an All-Star lineup of scribes we love and respect to be part of the fun?
The end result is, I can promise, one you will love. There has never been more high-quality content packed into the Handbook. I'm so friggin' proud of this thing, and so grateful to all the talented writers who blessed it with their skills.
Preorder yours now for $10+ and you'll get it next Tuesday, on the first day of the World Series, before it becomes publicly available. Got any questions? Read our FAQ.
