Earlier Monday, the Red Wings announced that theyíve activated RP Deolis Guerra. The Miracle also made a bullpen swap, adding RP Brandon Peterson and DL-ing closer Brian Gilbert. In case you missed it yesterday, Dalton

This is the second in a series of (somewhat) weekly installments leading up to the June 5th through 7th draft. The focus is intended to be very Twins-specific.
Weíre getting to the point of the draft season where the focus really gets scaled down to a handful of players. Teams drafting at or near the top will send out their most-trusted decision makers to get an idea of how they stack up compared to the best around the nation. The Twins are no different.
Join Seth and I tonight at 9:00 pm. If you have any questions or comments, please leave below.
Some topics on the agenda include: The fast start of Kyle Gibson, a new Trevor Plouffe, who's Sam Fuld?, and a glimpse into the future with the draft just a couple months away.
The title of today's article is based on Rihanna's "Diamonds", which I heard on KDWB today was written in less than 15 minutes. Not a coincidence, it took longer than 15 minutes to write the following report.

This is the first in a series of weekly installments leading up to the June 5th through 7th draft. The focus is intended to be very Twins-specific.
As we are all well aware, the Twins have been very active in drafting players out of their own backyard. While this includes Joe Mauer and Glen Perkins, it's also happened 10 times in the last five drafts. That is only the players drafted directly from the state and doesn't count players
