    Congrats. I haven't read the Pioneer Press much in the last year as their website just doesn't do it for me. Will give them another chance.

    Mike Berardino is a first-rate, go-to Twins beat reporter. This is a win-win in putting his byline alongside the outstanding TD minor league reporters.

    This is good news. Congratulations!

    Hopefully this works out for both parties - because the Pioneer Press' sport writing largely is the weak sister as compared to the Strib's (besides Berardino) and their website absolutely, positively sucks. So your content on their can't help but improve the page...

    A. Congrats, this is very nice news.
    B. The PP website is awful, just awful.
    C. I am a fan of their Twins coverage.

    So can Nick and Seth finally move out of the basement?

    Great work fellas. Did any of you imagine how big TD has become and will continue to be when you started?! Also, as you grow will you continue to avoid the mainstream media pitfalls that you have railed against, namely pulling punches? That is my only concern while reading your continued excellent content. Thanks.

    It's a conversation we have on a regular basis. Some writers have become closer to the Twins to improve coverage, others have kept their distance to remain objective. It's a good mix, in my opinion.

    It's a pleasure to be associated in any way with a dynamic organization like this one.

    Congrats. This is a great website (even when it loads slowly which it hasn't for a while). Glad to see it grow from what it was when I came here in 2012 (based on Sinker article).

    Nice work, gentlemen! Now, see what you can do to get Bat-Girl back into baseball writing.

    Great. They so need the coverage in that paper. It can only make it better.

    Agreed, Mike and then Phil Miller over at the Strib are the two best imo.

    One of the nice things is that if you click on a link to a TD story on the PP, it takes you off the PP site directly to Twins Daily. That is a great bonus (as opposed to the TwinsCentric blog on the Strib that keeps you on their site and in their commenting format).

    Congrats, guys for a great tie-in!

    (And, not to divert from the main topic here but I find Berardino alone to be worth the entire Strib contingent. I cannot believe the sheer amount of information he imparts.)


    (Oh, but honestly the PP should consider having the TD articles open in a new tab instead of the same one. I always get a little frustrated when I click a link and can't easily get back to where I was originally.)

    Very exciting! Congrats!
    John, is PP providing any feedback/involvement/coverage here on TD?

    Exactly what we're doing is evolving. We would love to have them provide links to some of their latest stories in our forum, for instance.
