Just Cody and ERolf on the pod this week as Paul and Jay are both out sick. This week we're talking Eddie Rosario and his MLB debut, the Twins actually winning a bunch of baseball games, what to make of Kyle Gibson's success despite his lake of strike outs and all those walks (Kevin Correia 2.0?!), and what's a "more worstest waste" of a 40-man roster spot, Doug Bernier or Eduardo Nunez.

Down on the Pond we talk about 2014 1st rounder Nick Gordon, make bets on how many home runs he'll hit in 2015, and talk about the player he's going to grow into (he's still only 19!).

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

This week's show features long laments about the inability of the Twins defense to play anything resembling defense. Costing the Twins somewhere in the neighborhood of one run a game, the bad defense, combined with pitchers who don't miss bats and hitters who can't get on base is a recipe for disaster. Welcome to your 2015 Minnesota Twins. Hey, at least Joe Mauer has a hockey playoff beard.
And of course, beer, baseball, and the news.

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.
