Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Friday, folks. If you are a frequent visitor of Puckett’s Pond, you know that it means that today is the day for the Weekend Web Gems. I know you’ve been waiting like kids on Christmas for this day…

So I’m gonna make you wait….

…. Longer ….

Okay, here’s the Web Gems! Enjoy!

Yesterday was the Rule 5 Draft. To find out what happened with the Twins click on over to Twinkie Town, they broke it down.

Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press has a piece on Byron Buxton and you know you want to read about the future of the franchise.

Our Brad Swanson on Kevin Slowey Was Framed! breaks down what he thinks is going to happen with the Twins starting rotation.

Baseball Outsider reflects upon baseball’s banning of home plate collisions. It’s fun to reminisce and look back, especially at the Twins moments at home.

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Ron Coomer is the front runner for the Chicago Cubs radio gig. Robert Feder says it’s a done-deal and Coomer is going to Chi-town.

I made up a game show, kinda. I called it ‘Would You Rather?!’ and you should make your voice be heard on our poll. Would you rather the Twins sign Bronson Arroyo or Mike Pelfrey.

I was looking up some Garth Brooks information and I discovered that the punk band ‘Me First and the Gimmies Gimmies’ did a country cover album… Listen and be amazed.
