The Winter Meetings are at its midpoint. As usual, there have been more rumors than transactions. It does appear that the league's decision to push forward many of the offseason dates has created much more discussions about players than in many years in the past. Despite the lack of Twins transactions, there are plenty of Twins topics to discuss. At 10:00 tonight (through Thursday night), Seth will be hosting a nightly Twins Winter Meetings podcast with guests to discuss what we are hearing and where we go from there. Tonight is his weekly SethSpeaks.net Weekly Minnesota Twins podcast, so it will be one full hour tonight. Tonight, the guests will include JJ Stankevitz, the White Sox blogger for Examiner.com, and Aaron Gleeman of Aaron's Baseball Blog, Hardball Talk and many other gigs. You can listen to the show live at 10:00, or listen to the podcast later, by clicking here.
(Note - On Sunday night, we started the Winter Meetings podcasts with guests Jim Crikket of Knuckleballs and John Bonnes of TwinsCentric and The Twins Geek. On Monday night, TwinCentric's Nick Nelson of Nick's Twins Blog was the guest. On Wednesday night, the guest will be 1500espn's Phil Mackey, live from the Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. By the way, if you would like to listen to the most recent SethSpeaks.net Weekly Minnesota Twins podcast, with guest Danny Valencia, click here.)
The Twins have tried to stay under the radar, as they typically do, through the Winter Meetings so far. However, they have a lot of balls up in the air right now. Tonight we will discuss many Twins topics including the following potential cycles of events:
Add to all of those decisions, the Rule 5 draft will take place at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, and that all of the Twins front office will have meetings throughout the week. There are a lot of things up in the air right now, but as a few of them gain some resolution, the Twins will fill in quickly.
But again, at 10:00 tonight, be sure to join the Twins Winter Meetings podcast for an hour of Twins-related talk.
