Jim Thome is Here, Top Draft-Pick Byron Buxton Signs, and Jon Rauch

Jamey Carroll, bringing that scrap (grit).

Good morning Twins fans! Some links for you to catch up on as you drink your coffee, worship King John, and/or enjoy your morning:

  • The Minnesota Twins have come to an agreement with their first round draft pick--second pick overall--Byron Buxton. So woohoo--the Twins finally have an African American center fielder... wait, what?
  • You can also follow what appears to be Byron Buxton on Twitter: @byronbuxtonTC
  • As pointed out by LEN3, Danny Valencia is batting .214 in AAA. So there is that.
  • Former Twins closer Jon Rauch did not have the best game for the Mets Sunday when he surrendered a losing homerun to Russell Martin. A multitude of 'delightful' New York City Sports Fans told him their thoughts via Twitter, which he relayed to us via re-tweeting all said hateful thoughts to his followers. Honestly--why would anyone say these things to someone they did not even know? As a born and raised Minnesotan, it is beyond me.
  • Former Minnesota Twin and everyone-favorite Jim Thome is in town for the next three days with the Phillies. Take this in Twins fans--as some Phillies beat writers are already speculating that Thome will retire after AL inter-league.
Jim Thome--you are the best, always, thank you and good luck tonight at Target Field!
