Seth and Jeremy are back on Tuesday night for their regularly scheduled Hangout at 9pm. Our goal is always to cover everything you need to know in 90 minutes. But we want you to know more and we tend to run over. So come early or late and enjoy all the baseball talk.We're into August - and though the trade deadline has passed - there is still the waiver trade period to contend with. It's unlikely the Twins make any moves soon, but this roster is likely to continue to change.

We'll cover the majors and minors and the activity of the past seven days.

The links for tonight's show are available here: Our event page and our video page.

Join us then, but first, ask us questions that you'd like answered. What else would you like to hear covered?

1) With the highest BA in the FSL last year being .289 (with anyone above 125 games) - How does that reflect on the difficuties hitters have in the FSL and how some numbers may be skued?

 

Does leading your team in HRs by 12 and RBI by 23 deserve a promotion?  ABW

*Have you ever heard of a player accomplishing that type of lead over teammates and not recieving a promotion? In the history of the Twins minor leagues?  In the history of baseball? When does a dog get a bone?

Who are your AFL picks (7) and why?

 

Consider Puerto Rico releases Vargas and Rosario to play.  Does this change your picks?

Now that the minor league seasons are winding down maybe it's time to start re-assessing prospect status.  

 

Name 2 or 3 guys who started the season as legit major league prospects but because of sub-par play this year are in danger of losing that status.

 

Conversely, name a couple guys that started  the season off the radar but have vaulted themselves into consideration to surface with the big league club someday.
