This offseason, the Minnesota Twins had a decision to make when it came to the future of their Double-A affiliate. After partnering with the New Britain Rock Cats for years, the two organizations had met a crossroads. Eventually both deciding to go their own way, the Twins found themselves a new Double-A home in Tennessee with the Chattanooga Lookouts. Formerly an affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Lookouts look to play host to some of the biggest names in the Twins organization in 2015.
