This week on the Talk to Contact podcast we rehash the week that was in Twins territory, including Mike Pelfrey and Trevor May pitching for a job in the rotation after Ricky Nolasco returns from his rehab start in Cedar Rapids, what the hell Torii Hunter is doing attempting a straight steal of home, and our very own Jay Corn finally earns his Talk to Contact membership card.

After a musical interlude from Egon's Unicat, we're joined by Jeremy Nygaard from TwinsDaily.com to discuss a myriad of topics including Paul Molitor's bench, the Twins' payroll, and the upcoming MLB draft.

And of course, beer, baseball, and the news.

We went a little wild this week, 110 minutes wild.  We chatted about the Twins' recent struggles, reviewed our experiences from the Home Opener (including the returning of Torii Hunter), and tried to decide what is going on with Tommy Milone.
In the second half of the program we were joined by Seth Stohs from TwinsDaily.com to talk about the first week of Minor League baseball.

And of course, beer, baseball, and the news.

Episode 126: A Dumpster Fire

The Twins have not been impressive. The offense has been anemic. The pitching has been atrocious. The defense has been porous. It's been bad, bad, bad. And yet, there have still been some bright spots... well one. J.R. Graham has looked good. This week's show contains a healthy amount of doom and gloom, but it's not all bad news bears. Yes Ervina Santana has been suspended. Yes the Twins have been outscored 24-1. But it's only three games in. The Twins can still win 159 games and go on to post season glory.

In addition to lamenting the cold start of the Twins, we also take a look at the minor league rosters for each of the Twins full season affiliates and talk about beer, baseball, and news from AROUND the league.

As always, we wrap up the show with beer, baseball and the news
