The Minnesota Twins have some great writers covering them. “Linking around Twins Territory” is small a collection in one place for Puckett’s Pond readers.

One of the greatest things about writing about the Minnesota Twins at Puckett’s Pond is that we are no different than most of you reading us. We are fans. And like you, we are reading all the other great content that is being written about our favorite team the Twins.

Below is a collection of some of the most recent pieces being written around Twins Territory. Enjoy!

The Minnesota Twins have one more year of control of Kyle Gibson. Because of that and his sustained improvement as a starter he has become the topic of extension conversations over the course of the 2018 season. Nick Nelson at Twins Daily offers up another pitcher on the Twins roster that should maybe become the topic of extension conversations instead, Jake Odorizzi.

We are all waiting for Byron Buxton to claim his spot as Twins cornerstone player. Ted Schwerzler writes about what could be ahead for the speedy center fielder after a 2018 spent dealing with injuries. Ted also touches on what sort of connection there naturally could be between Buxton and new Twins skipper Rocco Baldelli.

Believe it or not, we are still only weeks removed from a list of players receiving non-tender designations. Owen Poindexter had some fun with the names that were on that list over at FanGraph’s and assembled a team out of them. Twins former outfielder Robbie Grossman makes the list and the team incredibly does actually look better than some real MLB rosters.

Well, this looks fun and painful all at the same time. Andrew Bryzgornia  at Twinkie Town takes a look back at all the trades of the Target Field era for the Twins. Be ready for the ghosts of J.J. Hardy, Carlos Gomez, and Matt Capps to visit your home…well at least your computer/phone screen.
