Episode 140: Hot Stove and Cold Beers

7/24/2015
More
The Hot Stove League is heating up. The Twins are connected to big names like Troy Tulowitzki and Jonathan Lucroy, but the Twins would need to give up a lot of your favorite prospects to land a player of that caliber. The Twins offense has struggled, but Joe Mauer has been red hot and Trevor Plouffe launched a 3-run dinger to help the Twins take a game in LA. After the regular Twins news, we go beer and all the news from around the league. Enjoy the show!

139: The All-Star Edition

7/17/2015
More
This week's podcast features not a lot of new Twins news on account of major league baseball's All-Star break. An all-star break that saw Brian Dozier get added to the AL squad, hit a home run in his only at bat and Glen Perkins finish the game for the 2nd time in as many years. Paul and Cody discuss the current state of affairs in Minnesota, the merits of the AL's 2nd best team, and what, if any, upgrades the Twins should pursue down the stretch. Jay (and all his underscores) joins the...

Episode 138: Ervin Santana Returns and Twins Make A Billion Roster Moves

7/10/2015
More
This week we have a full team of Talk to Contacters and we drive deep into the Twins roster moves from the past week. Aaron Hicks is back, Ervin Santana is PED free, Eric Fryer is playing catcher, and something called Ryan O'Rourke is a loogy. New players! Then we chat about trade targets or moves the Twins could make (spending way too long talking about Tulo), and we do the usual players of the week and around the league. Oh, and Paul is extra arrogant about his beer this week. Of course...

Episode 137: Miguel Sano's MLB Debut

7/3/2015
More
Miguel Sano makes his MLB debut and Cody and Eric lose their minds. The Twins are struggling lately, but these dudes cannot stop talking about the possibility of postseason baseball. The young kids (Eddie Rosario, Byron Buxton, Alex Meyer, Miguel Sano) are all here, and there is help on the way (Jose Berrios, Jorge Polanco, Kohl Stewart, Lewis Thorpe) and the Twins are winning! Plus, you know, beer, baseball and the news. Thanks for hanging out!

Episode 134: Best Draft Ever Makes Up For Awful Play (Maybe)

6/12/2015
More
The Twins are just 3-7 since the calendar turned to June, and Eric and Paul are a little cranky they don't have better baseball to talk about. With all of the losing, some of the Twins' warts are starting to show, and the Twins made a flurry of roster moves involving Eddie Rosario, Jorge Polanco, Kennys Vargas, Danny Santana, Joe Stauffer and Michael Tonkin. Plus we're joined this week by Jeremy Nygaard from TwinsDaily.com and the kinda maybe sorta defunct Hangout and Talk Twins (Twins...

Can Eddie Rosario handle CF? And the Indians Preview

3/19/2015
More
This week’s Talk to Contact podcast is filled with rampant speculation. Can Eddie Rosario win the CF job this spring? How long will uber prospects Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton spend in AA? Can either Alex Meyer or Trevor May do anything to make the opening day roster? Can Danny Santana be a legitimate leadoff hitter and avoid the “sophomore slump”? All these questions answered and more. We finish the podcast with a special guest, Jason Lukeheart (@JasonLukeheart), the managing editor of...

122: I hate the White Sox Episode

3/13/2015
More
This week’s episode features a guest interview with Tom Flynn (@mighty_flynn, http://mightyflynn.tumblr.com/). Tom joins us to talk about the whirlwind offseason that took place on the South Side of Chicago and walks us through all the changes to the White Sox roster and what we can expect from them in 2015. Before getting to the White Sox, however, Eric, Paul and Jay discuss the happenings and goings on down in Fort Myers at Twins camp. Should Eduardo Escobar be the starting short-stop?...

Miguel Sano! Byron Buxton! Eddie Rosario! Baseball! LIVE BASEBALL! WELCOME BACK BASEBALL FANS!

Episode 120: Better Call Paul

2/27/2015
More
Paul is a cranky pants this week, I think he hates Spring Training. We dive into that assumption and figure out what the heck the Twins are doing for the next couple weeks. We're joined this week by Jeremy Nygaard from TwinsDaily.com to talk more about prospects, pitching, and even a little fantasy baseball. Then, as always, beer, baseball, and the news. Thanks for listening!

Episode 119 - The Do-Over Episode

2/20/2015
More
Jay and Eric take you on a long over due road trip around the last three weeks of Twins news, which includes a bunch of smart baseball folks thinking the Twins will lose 90 games again, a pretty miserable collection of teams in the American League Central, and what Spring Training is really all about. Reviewing the roster this week we dive deeper on Glen Perkins, Eddie Rosario, and Phil Hughes. And then, beer, baseball and the news. Enjoy the show.

Episode 118 - Twins National Anthem Audition

1/30/2015
More
This week we try out to sing the National Anthem at a Twins game, talk about how lame baseball nicknames are in 2015, and Paul tries to figure out what the Twins are doing with Eduardo Nunez. We go down on the pond and talk about Cameron Booser (Jay nicknames him Boose, era of lame nicknames, indeed), and we go all around the league talking beer, baseball and the news.

We're world famous, and other lies. Episode 116

1/16/2015
More
This week on the show our friend from North Dakota, Cody, is taking the week off to focus on the youth of the greater Fargo area. What a noble man he is. The rest of us forge ahead without him to discuss the news that needs discussing. E. Rolf openly laments everything and anything that the Twins can, have, or will do to make 2015 a success, all the while remaining overly optomisitc that this week's Down on the Pond player, Tyler Grimes, will one day see time with the big league ball club....

No Rolf, No Problem: 2015 New Years Resolutions

1/9/2015
More
After a week off celebrating 2014 and welcoming in 2015, the podcast crew was back together (minus a Rolf) to begin a new year of Talk to Contact radio gold. This week we make some New Year's resolutions on behalf of the Twins, to include Joe Mauer, Aaron Hicks and prayers for something (ANYTHING!) resembling a starting pitcher not named Phil Hughes. In this week's reviewing the roster segment, we take a look at the 2014 contributions of Caleb Thielbar, Ricky Nolasco and Oswaldo Arcia. We...

114: Hang out and Talk to Contact

12/24/2014
More
Phil Hughes renegotiated a contract adding three more years to his deal and keeping him in Minnesota through 2019. This was such a momentous occasion that we asked the Twins Hangouts fellas, Seth Stohs and Jeremy Nygaard, to join us. I'll warn you up front that E Rolf had his potty mouth out again, and that the beer was flowing on the podcast, so if you have children, or sensitive grandparents in the room, you may want to go elsewhere to listen. We talk about Phil's new contract, and try...

We're old and not going to write an episode description. Deal with it. Regular beer, baseball, and the news. Cody and Eric and Paul and no Jay (because of his grooming habits).
