Join Seth and I tonight at 8:30 as we're joined by ESPN1500's Brandon Warne.
We'll recap the flurry of activity we've seen since last Tuesday night as well as wrap up what's been going on in the catching market over the last couple of days. I'm sure we'll also talk about starting pitching and deviate from the plan that we have.
If we have time, we'll talk about the Twins Hall of Fame ballot and maybe even MLB's ballot that was released
Tuesday night at 8:30 marks the 3rd (regular) episode of our off-season Google Hangout sessions. Seth and I are pleased to have the Pioneer Press's Mike Berardino hanging out with us.
We've got some things on the agenda. But will there be a signing to talk about? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
If you have questions, leave them in the comments below or tweet @jeremynygaard or @sethtweets with them. Mike is as plugged
Join Seth and I Tuesday night at 8:30 pm as we discuss your favorite nine.
Some things on the agenda include: The 40-man roster decisions, the news about Eddie Rosario, free agent rumors, curious moves, winter league updates and questions from viewers.
As always, we'd love to get your feedback, so leave below.

Join Seth and I tonight at 8:30 as we "hangout" and talk Twins baseball.
This is new to us too, so cut us some slack if it's not perfect. And it will be live... so that should add to the intrigue.
Just click on the link. You'll see a notice that we're starting soon. We'll pop up once we're on (and we're shooting for 8:30).

I’ve never told anyone this story…
Mostly because I just made it up...
And also because if I didn’t make it up, you still wouldn’t believe it…
I had never been more excited to attend a baseball game than I was to attend Game 1 of the 2010 American League Division Series against the Yankees. It was the first playoff game to ever happen at Target Field and my seats were great.
I remember that funny feeling – nothing like Game 163 – when things
You may have seen Cody’s update earlier today on how the Twins prospects have done while playing in Arizona so far this fall.
There are some other leagues underway in the warmer parts of the world and here’s an update on those players.
This only includes players that are under contract to the team. Expected minor-league free agents are not included. *Stats through 10/28, in order of #Impressiveness

What better time than right now is there to roll out the newest edition of the Roster and Payroll page?
After fiddling with some design changes, there really isn't a lot of options. There are still some potential changes that may be made, but for now you're gonna have to deal with it.
The first thing you see is the PROJECTED payroll. You're gonna see that word a lot because, well... everything you see is a projection. I don't really have any special insight into anything.
The page will be updated throughout the day. (There will be a break in the action later this afternoon as I head off to prepare a team of 9th graders to get our first football win of the season.)

Scott Diamond gave up a run in the top of the 1st, but the Red Wings answered back in the bottom of the inning scoring three runs. They currently

I know the picture doesn't fit, but for what might be the last time, let's give #33 another cover photo. This from a happier time.
Let's hope there is more champagne in Morneau's near future... and also that none of the corks hit him in the head.
If you want to weigh in on the trade and it's reactions. Go here.
Tonight was a very significant night for the Rochester Red Wings. It's also a big night for Josmil Pinto,
The Twins were off today. In other baseball news, it was announced that Matt Harvey of the Mets has a partially torn UCL. He's getting the dreaded "rest and recovery" treatment many Twins fans are too familiar with. It's an unfortunate development for one of the best young arms in the game today.
Eddie Rosario was named Eastern League Player of the Week after his stellar week last week.
There was also a nice write-up about a few Twins prospects on Baseball America as well
We've been dealing with dreadful pitching in the major leagues pretty much everyday since... well... 2011. Today was more of the same. In fact, Kyle Gibson was sent back to Rochester after today's outing.
There were some other minor league moves as well. A.J. Pettersen was moved from New Britain to Fort Myers along with Matthew Summers. To make room, Fort Myers sent Alex Swim back across the street.
On a positive note, those in the FSNorth viewership got to see a glimpse

The Twins remain in the 7th slot for the 2014 MLB Draft if the season ended today. It will be an interesting six weeks as only four games separate the 4th pick from the 15th pick. The Twins are currently 1.5 games ahead of the Cubs (who would pick 4th) and only 2.5 games behind Colorado (who would pick 15th).
The Red Wings announced this morning that OF Antoan Richardson would be activated and UTIL Brian Dinkelman would be placed on the DL with a quad strain.
Both last night's report as well as tonight's report will be covered down below.
As many of you know, on Friday Ryan Doumit was activated from the 7-day Concussion D.L. and Chris Colabello was optioned to Rochester to make room.
Today, Rochester announced that RP Luis Perdomo was placed on the D.L. with a right calf strain. That opens a spot for Colabello.
Also, yesterday 1B Michael Gonzales was activated by Cedar Rapids and earlier this morning MiLB.com posted

For those of you that read this regularly - and clamored for Andrew Albers to get his chance - you were probably pretty excited to see him as good as he was tonight for the Twins. Staff Ace? If a guy that doesn't hit 90 and is the definition of "pitching-to-contact" isn't exactly what the Twins are looking for in a Staff Ace, well...
Today was also a big day for current minor leaguers recognized around baseball.
Let's take a spin around the minor leagues.
