We are happy to announce that Tom Froemming has agreed to become Twins Daily’s first editor. The whole community already knows Tom from his extensive Twins Daily writing which included last year’s great game recap series. We hope you’ll all congratulate him as he works with both established and new writers to keep Twins Daily’s front page the pride of Twins junkies.The decision to formally establish this role was a result of concerns we expressed in a story back on December 26th. To help ensure the long term viability of Twins Daily, we understand that we both need to formalize some of our part-time roles and to reach out to and compensate new writers. Tom will be doing both and we are planning additional announcements and activities to strengthen our community soon.

We’re thrilled Tom agreed to take on this responsibility. He’s talented, organized, creative, tireless and incredibly passionate. He’s exactly the writer for which Twins Daily was established. But he’s certainly not alone in that regard; just look at the names on our front page, our blogs and our forums. You’ll find many others who help the community thrive and would’ve made great candidates.

Maybe you’re one of them? If you would like to try writing for Twins Daily, we encourage you to set up a blog and reach out to Tom. We compensate each independent writer for all gross revenues the views from their stories generate. They will also get help editing and honing their writing, both from other writers and from the community. And of course, you get to reach the thousands of Twins fans who stop by Twins Daily each day.

We are determined to continue to grow Twins Daily and expose new voices and great writing to as many passionate Twins fans as we can reach. We think Tom will be an important part of that, and we think you will be too. I hope you’ll join us in rallying around Tom in his new role and continuing to support Twins Daily,

Gratefully,
Brock, Seth, Nick, Parker & John

Congrats!

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

And, apparently I was too slow on the click. So I'll be the second.

Absolutely outstanding! Congrats! A step in the right direction to an already fabulous site that has to be the envy of every team sports blog site out there! I, and I'm sure others, have already noticed subtle changes in the site in reaching for change to obtain that next level of progression, excitement and excellence. I can only hope to do my best to be a part of the continued growth of Twins Daily.
