  2. You know what? After reading a bunch of these replies and ideas I’m going to switch mine a bit. Assumptions: Donaldson is traded. They use that money to partially fund a more expensive shortstop. They still don't bring back Cruz. C - Jeffers (for Opening Day) 1B - Sano 2B - Polanco SS - Top 5 FA SS 3B - Arraez LF - Kirilloff CF - Buxton RF - Kepler DH - Garver (for Opening Day, various overall)
  3. State your assumptions about who is on the team and who isn't after the offseason. I'll go first: Assumptions: they bring in a shortstop. The don't bring back Cruz. C - Garver 1B - Kirilloff 2B - Polanco SS - TBD 3B - Donaldson LF - Arraez CF - Buxton RF - Kepler DH - Sano

  7. Ever wanted to have some drinks with Twins Geek at Twins game? This Wednesday night (9/1) is your chance. You can join John and other Twins Daily writers including Parker Hageman, Matthew Taylor, David Youngs and others at the Gray Duck Deck in Target Field. John will be the celebrity bartender at the Gray Duck Deck along with Lindsay Guentzel as the Twins face the Cubs. The best part is it’s easy peasey. Just get a cheap ticket to the game and swing by the Gray Duck Deck during the first 4-5 innings of the game. Say hi. Order a beer. Or a Bomba Juice. Or both. John will serve you and you can meet and greet other Twins Daily community members. Plus, it’s supposed to be a gorgeous summer night! Twins Daily's events have become the stuff of legend. This is probably our last time to gather before the Winter Meltdown, so let’s make it count. We know it’s late notice but summer ends quickly around here. Take yourself out to the ballgame and swing by to say “Hi”. View full article

  11. I haven't seen the most recent ones, but the first two HBP with Witchita, they were in the back of the leg, and he just sort of turned so they hit him. It might be that a lot of other hitters move their legs or do a little dance to avoid it?
