Minnesota has pulled itself out of the hard freeze. We are no longer in the negative all-day long. Heck, it got above freezing yesterday, it might again today and it is projected to do it on Monday. This is a heat wave, folks!
Also a heat wave is the news across the MLB. As we get closer and closer to spring training, the news around the league just gets more and more intriguing. Let’s check out the big headlines from around the Fansided network with the Minnesota Twins Web Gems!
- The St. Louis Cardinals have a new toy in Jason Heyward, coming over from the Atlanta Braves earlier in the offseason. Word from Heyward is that he is open to an extension with the Cards. Redbird Rants has more.
- I am kind of a sucker for base stealing specialists, so this news caught my eye: Quintin Berry has re-signed with the Boston Red Sox on a minor league deal. Bosox Injection has the details on the speedy Berry.
- Arbitration news! We go to San Francisco for this as the Giants have avoided arbitration with a big cog to their outfield. Gregor Blanco has singed a two-year deal, hear it from Around The Foghorn.
- Some Minnesota Twins fans have wanted this guy, so the Twins better act fast. Reportedly, the Miami Marlins are stepping up their pursuit of Ichiro Suzuki. Marlin Maniac breaks down the potential connection.
- The neighbors to the east are looking for bullpen help and some believe that the Milwaukee Brewers’ closer from just a year ago is not the answer. Francisco Rodriguez is a no-go for Reviewing The Brew.
- Twins note of the day: Dick Bremer might have, sort of endorsed Farmers Only on Twitter this morning.
We are only 77 days away from Opening Day! We can make it, folks!
Have a marvelous Sunday.
