We are almost to the end of January and that means that we are just that close to Spring Training. After Spring Training, it’s the regular season! It’s almost here! Step by step, folks. We can make it.
While we wait it out and the East Coast digs out from an overblown snowstorm, we check in on the news of the day with the Minnesota Twins Web Gems. Like always, these are brought to you by the wonderful sites around the Fansided Network!
- There are things that transcend sports, one of those is the health of others’. Today in Canada it is Bell Let’s Talk Day, a day that is designed to drive awareness about mental health awareness. More on this wonderful day from our friends north of the border at Jays Journal.
- TRADE! The Baltimore Orioles have acquired outfielder Travis Snider from the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league pitcher Stephen Tarpley. More on this deal from Call To The Pen.
- Cool interview alert! Redbird Rants got to talk with St. Louis Cardinals Farm Director Gary LaRocque recently. Check out the interview right here!
- Chicks dig the long ball and Miguel Cabrera sure has hit a lot of them. Here is a collection of his best five as a member of the Detroit Tigers. Amazingly none of them are against the Minnesota Twins! Motor City Bengals has the clips of the dingers.
- The Oakland A’s have made some moves this offseason, some head scratching, but they were moves. Who will make the biggest impact on Oakland this year? Swingin’ A’s predicts who it will be.
- To the Windy City for a very minor signing, the Chicago White Sox have signed Engel Beltre. Southside Showdown has more on the addition for the Sox.
- Twins note of the day: Danny Santana was a nice surprise in 2014, but it doesn’t look like the starting shortstop job is automatically his going into 2015. It looks like Danny Boy will be in a competition.
I’m done. Have a good Wednesday, everybody.
