  1. The Braves signed 32 year old RP Michael Tonkin, who last appeared in the majors with the Twins in 2017, to a minor league contract.
  2. The Twins announced today that Ron Gardenhire, Dan Gladden, and Cesar Tovar have been elected to the Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame and will be inducted during Hall of Fame weekend, which will take place August 20-21, 2022. https://www.mlb.com/twins/news/twins-class-of-2022-hall-of-fame
  3. I think the article is pretty spot on, but it's not necessarily an indictment on the Timberwolves. He was fine here, but they needed him to be more than that. He's a very good player on your team....if he's the 4th-most important player.
  4. Zimmer is trying to save his job. I don't fault him for not wanting to develop Mond if he feels Mannion gives the team the best chance to win.
  5. Cousins placed on COVID list. Out for Sunday's game versus Green Bay.
  6. Thielen is out the rest of the regular season after having surgery on the injured ankle.
  7. LHP Keith Garagozzo was chosen by the Twins from the NY Yankees in the 1993 Rule 5 draft. Garagozzo appeared in 7 games for the Twins in April 1994 putting up a 9.64 ERA with 3 K's and 13 BB's before being returned to the Yankees on May 4th, 1994.
  8. Bernardo Brito aka "El Pupo." Slugged 105 HR's in the Cleveland system from 1981-1987. Released and signed with the Twins. Brito hit 193 HR's while in the Twins system from 1988 thru 1995, 5 of which were at the major-league level among his 76 AB's, Released following the '95 season and spent 1 year in Japan (21 HR in 56 games).
  9. On August 29th, 1984, the upstart Minnesota Twins held a 3 game lead in the AL West division. In a bid to shore up their bench, the Twins traded a PTBNL to the Seattle Mariners for 30 year old PH/DH/1B Pat Putnam, who had a paltry .532 OPS for the Mariners. Well, Putnam's OPS in 43 AB's was almost half that for the Twins (.268!). As we all know, the Twins proceeded to lose the division to Cleveland and Jamie Quirk.
  10. FREE Anthony Slama! Had some pretty good minor league #'s, but only appeared in 7 games for the Twins over the 2010-2011 seasons.
  11. This right here. Loved Hrbek, Bruno, and Gaetti in the early 80's, but my fandom went to a whole new level after Kirby came aboard.
  12. Been a rollercoaster of a season for sure, but at 11-14 they are on pace to win 36 games. The Vegas over/under on Timberwolves wins prior to the season? 35.5 wins
  13. The Twins announced their 2022 coaching staff today, announcing the additions of Hank Conger as First Base/Catching coach and Luis Ramirez as Asst. Pitching Coach. In addition, Tommy Watkins will shift to Third Base/Outfield coach and Tony Diaz will move to Asst. Bench/Infield Coach. Manager – Rocco Baldelli Bench Coach – Jayce Tingler Assistant Bench Coach / Infield – Tony Diaz Pitching Coach – Wes Johnson Hitting Coach – David Popkins Hitting Coach – Rudy Hernandez First Base Coach / Catching – Hank Conger Third Base Coach / Outfield – Tommy Watkins Bullpen Coach – Pete Maki Assistant Pitching Coach – Luis Ramirez Quality Control Coach – Nate Dammann https://www.mlb.com/press-release/press-release-twins-add-hank-conger-to-major-league-coaching-staff
  14. Yikes, Griffen posted a video to Instagram last night saying that there were people outside his place that wanted to kill him and displayed a gun that he said Dalvin Cook helped him get. Clearly was having another mental health episode. Hope he gets the help that he needs. With Griffen out and now Tomlinson out on the Covid list, the Vikings will be extremely thin on the D-line this week.
