Tim Shibuya seems to be one of those guys that just gets it done no matter what role he has. Is Wimmers in the bullpen for good?

Good question about Wimmers, perhaps he is only a relief pitcher prospect and not a starter, what's wrong with that as long as he is effective at any level. Glen Perkins comes to mind just for one example.

I think with Wimmers, he'll get another shot to start at some point. I think we forget how much his arm has been through over the last two seasons. This might be the best way to bring him back.

The new official sites for the affiliates are sweet. I had no idea that was in the works. It was a nice surprise when I clicked on the box score links.

I read the box scores daily but now how does one get to the team websites on the www.milb.com website?

You can get to them from the Twins official site by selecting the pipeline/affiliate tab which brings you to the Twins milb site which has links for all the minor league affiliates' official team sites. If you click on the team icon it will take you to that site. On second review, I don't think these really are new sites, I just hadn't visited them in a while and couldn't remember all the video links or the gameday option from the last time I was there. I also included direct links in my previous post, if you can't find your way from the Twins' site.
