Sorry that we couldn't be with you on our regular Tuesday night show, but we're happy to be back for a special Wednesday episode. It's sure to be fun-filled 60 minutes (or maybe 80 again?) that promises to cover you in everything that's happened over the last eight days.After predicting our September call-ups, we'll look at who the Twins actually did bring up as well as some other curios roster moves.

We'll also take a look in review at the minor league seasons that are finished plus the teams that are still fighting to call themselves League Champions.

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

Sometimes it is hard to argue with success and the Miracle are having that in the playoffs thus far, BUT are you surprised that Adam Brett Walker is batting 7th in the playoff line up this series?

 

He led the league in Games Played; HRs; RBI; and Total Bases.  Not to mention - he led the Miracle in Hits this season. 

 

Are you surprised by his position in the batting order (7th) or do you truly see a justifiable rationale with the season on the line?

Are you surprised that Walker had more BBs than anyone on either the AA (New Britain) and / or AAA (Rochester) rosters, not named Deibison Romero? Does that affect your evaluation of him at all moving forward?

Do you think with the way Escobar and Santana are playing that if the draft was today would the Twins still select Nick Gordon? Not sure if they liked him that well or needed him.  Would they have taken the OF bat Jackson or a starting pitcher ?

Any word on Bard and Chargois? Will they both have to go on 40 man after next year?
