Cedar Rapids coach Tommy Watkins.

Tommy Watkins and Three amigos, Talk to Contact Ep 80


Paul is gone again, but we’re still here! While he’s gone we put pine tar all over our bodies and get ejected in the 2nd inning. You can download the new Talk to Contact (@TalkToContact) episode via iTunes or by clicking here.

The Twins won a double header against the Jays, but other than that things have been less than stellar for the team in the pas week.  We dive into some stories from the week that was, including the acquisition of Sam Fuld and what it means for Aaron Hicks, the retirement ofJason Bartlett, and what to make of Chris Colabello.

It is an exciting time to be a podcast listener because this week Cody runs an interview for the first time in the history of the podcast as we chatted with the Cedar Rapids Kernels’ Hitting Coach, Tommy Watkins.  Watkins has coached several of the current Minnesota Twins and shares some of his baseballing knowledge with us.

We also take some time to talk about the unheralded pitcher Yohan Pino who has been pitching in Minors for 10 years without a MLB appearance.  Of course, the usual – beer, baseball and the news to round out the show.

Enjoy the show.
