  • Baseball Prospectus and Twins Daily teamed up and held a special event at Target Field last Friday where they interviewed GM Thad Levine. Did anyone here go? Well, if you didn’t, you can still listen to the recording here.
  • Speaking of Twins Daily, Nick Nelson wrote an interesting piece asking whether Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer are actually holding the team back.
  • The Pioneer Press sat down with Thad Levine’s better half CBO Derek Falvey and asked him about the trade deadline and whether he thinks Bartolo Colon will pitch the rest of the year, among other things.
  • Top prospect pitcher Stephen Gonsalves was promoted to Triple-A Rochester over the weekend. He’s just one step away from the majors!
  • Miguel Sano has missed three straight games, but his hand is NOT broken.
  • As you have probably heard by now, 1987 World Series Champion Don Baylor passed away yesterday. Grant Brisbee wrote a great piece about Baylor’s fascinating and unique career.
  • Even though Baylor only played 20 games with the Twins, he called it, “ the best time I ever had in the game.”
