It's been almost four years since I last did my own podcast. For a variety of reasons, I stopped at that time. Twins Daily was taking off. Listeners were low. We were contemplating Vikings and Wild and Wolves websites. Life. But the reality is that I really liked my podcast. It was something that I liked listening to. I liked talking about the Twins. I loved talking to players. And that's what I'm planning to do again with this podcast.

Tonight at 8:00 central time, I was joined by three members of the Minnesota Twins organization, a senior on his year's Minnesota Gophers baseball team, and MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo. We just talked baseball. It should be a lot of fun. If you're able to listen live, that would be great. If you have a football game to watch and don't want to mute the TV, you can always download it later.

You will be able to leave questions in the page's chat room, or feel free to send questions in the comments below and I will be happy to ask them for you (if they're fair questions, of course).In tonight's podcast, Get to know a little more about minor league outfielder LaMonte Wade, two-time Twins Daily minor league pitcher of the year Stephen Gonsalves, minor league pitcher Tyler Wells, and Minnesota Gophers senior second baseman Luke Pettersen.

LaMonte Wade was the Twins 9th round pick in 2015 and has quickly moved up the system. He ended 2017 in the Arizona Fall League.

Stephen Gonsalves was the Twins 4th round pick in 2013. He went to big league came in 2017 and reached AAA late in the season. He was added to the Twins 40-man roster in November and should make his Major League debut in 2018.

Tyler Wells was drafted by the Twins in 2016. The big right-hander had a quality season in Cedar Rapids and looks to jump to Ft. Myers in 2018.

Finally, Luke Pettersen is a senior on the 2018 Minnesota Golden Gophers roster. We discuss his final college season and how the Gophers might fare in the Big Ten this year.

Also, MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo talked about the Twins 2017 draft as well as another one of his projects.

In this return podcast, I was joined by the following:

8:00 - Gophers second baseman Luke Pettersen (1:35 - 12:17)
8:15 - Twins minor league outfielder LaMonte Wade (14:58 - 31:15)
8:30 - MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo (32:05 - 47:45)
8:45 - Twins minor league pitcher Stephen Gonsalves. (48:20 - 1:02:08)
8:30 - Twins minor league pitching Tyler Wells (1:03:33 - 1:24:40)

A special thanks to Travis Aune and Chad Smith who are letting me use their Minnesota Sports Weekly platform for now.

Upon the show's completion, it will be available on iTunes as well. I will provide those links as they are available.

I'm not sure what happened, whether on my end or yours, but I didn't hear the end of the Tyler Wells interview. Other than that, this was a really good show for your return to podcasting, Seth. Might be hard to measure up to going forward!

 

I do hope everyone listens all the way through so they get to hear your interview with Wells. If it sounds to people like he's a very composed and confident person, I would just say that he also carries himself that way on the mound, as well. Controlled and confident presence that you don't see a lot of in pitchers at the MWL level.

I'll have to listen to it. I was originally going to do just an hour, but then got an extra guest, so I changed it to 90 minutes about 4 minutes before the show was supposed to start. So, maybe that created some issues. I'll see what I can find out.

 

But yes, Wells is pretty impressive, isn't he? Answered each question very well. His response on Royce Lewis was exciting...

I know nothing about iTunes... I don't have an iPhone. I can't find it on my computer... but I'm told that if you search "Minnesota Sports Weekly" under podcasts on iTunes, it's there...

 

I wish I could find a link or something.

 

I guess you can also search "Seth's Twins Talk."

When thought about dabbling into podcasts, I just followed every free step on this link:

Chief or RiverBrian, but I suspect they might be too expensive and too heavily booked.

I looked on Minnesota Sports Weekly when I posted the original question. It was not there then, but it is there now.

For iPhone users, just subscribe to that podcast. I assume this will be the most consistent way going forward.

Tyler Wells has become one of my favorite prospects after that interview. He seems to have a great mindset, and the comment on Royce Lewis is great to hear too.
