    Thanks for sharing. This was my first time getting to see the Kernels this year, which turns out to be quite a good one. Clinton is one of my favorite MWL parks, and I always seem to get good games...

    Adam B Walker's Home Run was a mammoth blast that hit the top of the billboard above the scoreboard at Pohlman Field. At least one blast by Sano last year that went over the entire scoreboard, but...

    I made my first roadtrip out to Fort Wayne last night. Boy is that a great ballpark, probably the best in the Midwest League (although I still love going to Clinton). It's a really big park, without...

    This is a challenge, but a good one. I try to pick off at least one or two new parks a year, but that also means its been a while since I've been to several of these.

    Is Nico Goodrum's defense as horrific all season as it has been during his games in Beloit? He made another error last night, forgetting to touch second base and then badly misfiring on the throw to...

    As was mine. Well tounge-in-cheek, mixed with lingering bitterness!

    I'm also thinking about making the drive over to CR this afternoon. Although, the forecast doesn't look good, and after watching...

    If Pohlman Field has such a great home field advantage, maybe the Twins should have never left!

    Adam Walker did manage to score the most unusual play of the game: He got 2 RBI while hitting into a...

    I've got to say Saturday and Sunday's games in Beloit were a couple of the most interesting games I've been to in a long time.

    Saturday featured a great pitching duel, and some very interesting...

    I would be shocked if Buxton is promoted before June, and I would be pretty surprised if he was promoted at all this year.

    Oswaldo Arcia is the only top position player prospect I can think of...

    After watching the replays, the problem isn't that the ball was called an infield fly, its that the umpire called it horrifically late.

    The umpire didn't signal infield fly until the shortstop...

    The Saints becoming a Twins Affiliate wouldn't be more competition, it would be less.

    Regardless of what happens, the Saints are going to be playing in St. Paul in a new ballpark. The only...

    I understand why Oakland would want to be in Beloit. I've talked to a number of player parents over the years who love the fact that you can get from Pohlman Field to MKE in about an hour, and to...

    Considering that Beloit seems to be a tad higher than Burlington in the MWL pecking order, wouldn't the Snappers ultimately get the say of the two leftover after Quad Cities?

    In other words,...

    If the Twins really want to get an affiliate in St. Paul, perhaps the target date should be 2020, not 2016.

    My understanding is that the current franchise agreements in the Midwest League are in...

    Yeah, but they also think you are a "Twin Cities Blogger" so they only care about the "facts" when its clear they're getting schooled.

    Its a sad day in Southern Wisconsin, although certainly not unexpected. Cedar Rapids has seemed like a perfect fit for the Twins, and hopefully it's a good relationship that lasts just as long as it...

    Interesting - I knew that all of Alexi's rehab games were played in Cedar Rapids, but I never knew that he'd requested them. A very classy touch on his part.

    The Cubs and Brewers are probably...

    Ignoring the same logical issues of finding and moving a current franchise, the reality is that none of those places are really big enough to be AAA markets. I believe Des Moines is already the...

    It seems to me there is minor league equivalent of a 7-year itch - its just 8- years since milb agreements only come up on even number years.

    If you go and look at the past 20-30 years of mwl...
