Welcome one, welcome all! Here are the links:

  • According to Baseball Reference, Byron Buxton is not only the best defensive center fielder in baseball, but the best defensive player at his position among all players in MLB.
  • Phil Hughes is joining the Rochester Red Wings tomorrow for a rehab assignment. They will determine how many more ribs he needs to have removed or not. Hopefully.
  • Someone over at thinks the Twins should try to trade for current Phillie pitcher Jeremy Hellickson. Thoughts?
  • Bless You Boys did another one of their Central Division Round-ups yesterday, where they still seem to persist in their belief that the Twins are not actually good. Yeah, maybe—but don’t let recency bias cloud your vision, folks. The Twins are going places in the world, and the Tigers are getting old.
  • Remember last Friday when the Twins celebrated our dearly beloved Prince at Target Field? And dedicated $10,000 to Minneapolis Public Schools for arts funding in honor of Prince? Members of Prince’s family were there too.
