Aaron and John talk about Justin Morneau's latest injury, Brian Dozier's arrival, swapping Clete Thomas for Erik Komatsu, giving Scott Diamond a chance in place of Liam Hendriks, their new PickPointz game, Ron Gardenhire's job security, bad news for Danny Valencia and Alexi Casilla, answering questions submitted by listeners via Twitter, and the latest from the minor leagues with special guest Seth Stohs.

Besides the TwinsCentric writers you (occasionally?) enjoy here, Twins Daily provides lots of opportunity for other independent Twins writers to showcase their talents.

Jim Crikket looks to Iowa and the latest series that top prospect Miguel Sano just had. If you're willing to look further in the distance (and much further away), Jnygaard looks at Puerto Rican prospects that the Twins might target in the amateur draft. Finally, if you're looking for hope in the unlikeliest of places, how about in Luis Perdomo's beard?
