- From the former Twins' department: Looks like one of the most beloved recent Twins' players is set to join a division foe when his playing days are over. And another (albeit less loved) former Twins had his championship ring stolen.
- Luke Hughes was injured slightly in the semi-finals of the Australian Baseball League, and Twins tell him to take a seat in the finals. Meanwhile, after the Super Bowl Luke tweeted that shoulder is feeling better and should be fine for spring, while yesterday Joe Christensen reports that he is coming to MN for a shoulder exam.
- A former Twins' player is now a local Hall of Famer in two sports. And it is not Dave Winfield.
- If you were watching the Super Bowl Sunday, you probably missed Fransisco Liriano's last start in the Winter Leagues
- Looks like Ben Revere enjoyed his presence to the Twins' Caravan so much, that now he is participating in another caravan
- Twins' player tweet of the week is this one by Twins' IF/OF prospect Reggie Williams. Hope he survived the encounter.
- If you are computer inclined and interested in a database with all baseball batting and pitching stats back since 1871, you should not miss this
The parting shot today is in honor of the Twins' manager Ron Gardenhire: if not anointing the opening day pitcher and the starting outfield for the season before a single Spring Training pitch has been thrown, Twins' manager Ron Garderhire revealed his opening day lineup yesterday at Mason City, IA. Here is additional coverage of Gardy's visit to Mason City, IA. Interestingly enough (maybe only to me,) Mason City, was the host of a Baseball team (the Bats) that played in the same league (Great Central League) with the latest incarnation of the Minneapolis Millers. That league lasted only one year, 1994.
