Episode 22 of the Twins baseball podcast, Talk To Contact (@TalkToContact), is now available for download via iTunes or by clicking here.
Getting some ink from Twins top prospect Miguel Sano; his signature, by the way, is almost completely illegible.
Paul spent the weekend up in Minnesota attending TwinsFest, drinking beer and talking baseball. As a result, he sounds both hungover and lifeless on the podcast, but there’s still lots of great content. Apologies to the listener for the audio quality at points during the recording as Paul was using his AWESOME (sarcasm) travel laptop for recording, thus you can literally hear the computer fan whirring in the background trying to keep the computer from exploding. We are joined towards the end of the episode by Jose Bosch (@HJBosch21 from Motor City Bengals to take a look at the Detroit Tigers off-season. We also discuss Tony Oliva, Matthew Summersand a comprehensive review of TwinsFest and the cat video guy.

Cat Video Guy! Pretty sure he’ll be internet famous in no time
If you asked an 7-year old version of myself who played in the metrodome, I would reply "Kirrrrrrrbbbbbbyyyyy Pucketttttttttttttttt!!!!!!" Fast forward 20 years and now I'm writing about the Twins here on the Pond. I moved away from Minnesota almost 10 years ago and joined the US Coast Guard. My passion for the Twins has never waned and I would say that the old adage is true "absence makes the heart grow fonder." I'm currently out in grey, rainy, beautiful Seattle. If you're ever out this way shoot me a note, I'd love to meet up for a beer and talk Twins with you.
