We're old and not going to write an episode description. Deal with it. Regular beer, baseball, and the news. Cody and Eric and Paul and no Jay (because of his grooming habits).

December 11, 2014 06:57 PM PST

This week the gang talks about Ervin Santana, the Rule Five Draft, and what the Twins rotation will look like to start the year. The guys were joined by TwinsDaily's Jeremy Nygaard to talk about who JR Graham is, and what the Twins lost in Sean Gilmartin and Matt Tomshaw (THE THING!).
The episode wraps up with beer, baseball, and the news.

Thanks for listening!

This week's show features the full fearsome foursome. With all hands on deck the gentlemen discuss the Torii Hunter signing and try to figure out if the press conference to announce the move was newsworthy in and of itself.

We also review the Twins decision to offer arbitration with all of their arbitration eligible players, and some other Twins news tidbits before we are joined by Seth Stohs (@SethTweets) from Twins Daily to discuss his upcoming book, the Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook.

Due to some technical difficulties and the time constraints of the hosts, we had to cut the show short. Be sure to tune in next week to hear us continue our reviewing the roster series when we discuss Kyle Gibson, Danny (Dan) Santana.

Thanks for listening.

This week we keep it short, under an hour, to discuss the new additions to the Twins coaching staff. It's just Jay (The master of underscores) and Paul this week, and they both started the podcast a couple of beers in trying to shake the remnants of a Thanksgiving Hangover. A little hair of the dog. Or just a good excuse to drink beers and talk baseball.

Jay and Cody chart a path through new territory as BOTH Eric and Paul sit out this week. Why? You must not have received the invite either.

While the Pleiss twins frolic around the Pacific northwest in a celebratory stupor, Cody and Jay navigate through a gauntlet of hot stove chatter, 2015 speculation, free agent courtships and all in all manage just fine without the twins.

Thanks for listening and enjoy our show.

On the one-hundred and eighth episode of Talk to Contact, the boys were joined by Nick Nelson (@NNelson9) from TwinsDaily to talk about the movement of bloggers from their mothers' basements to the mainstream in the past several years. We also talk about Paul Molitor's coaching staff, and what we think about Gene Glynn at third base and Rudy Hernandez as the assistant hitting coach.

Of course our hosts are drinking beer, and they spend the last segment on the podcast discussing Mike Trout and Clayton Kershaw winning the AL and NL MVP awards. We even wonder who would win the MLB MVP award if we had to combine things all into one.

Thanks for listening and enjoy our show.

This week the boys discuss Paul Molitor and what his hiring means for the future of the Minnesota Twins. We're also joined by Bill Parker (@Bill_TPA) to talk about the Twins' roster and some potential free agent targets to help fill in the 2015 roster.
As always, we chat about beer, baseball, and the news. I forgot to ask Bill on air what he was drinking, be he assures me it was a Laguntas Little Sumpin' Sumpin', so there's that!

Thanks for listening and enjoy the show.

For the first time ever, Cody Christie hosts and entire episode of Talk to Contact. He runs the transitions, he drives the content, and he tells all the jokes! North Dakota fans, unite!
In addition to our North Dakotan flare, we talk about the ongoing Twins manager search, what it means that no one will go to games in 2015 at Target Field, and way too much about Aaron Hicks.

Eric also has a moment of clarity talking about beer that changes his life, and of course, beer, baseball, and the news.

93 minutes of blues and baseball.

October 24, 2014 04:12 AM PDT

The Royals and the Giants are playing for baseball's biggest prize and we're all sitting around talking about Paul Molitor, Torey Lovullo and Doug Mientkiewicz and how to build a coaching staff when your new manager has never been the skipper in the big leagues. We also revisited the Twins payroll situation with half of our team back from a week long hiatus.

Down on the Pond we talked all about Eddie Rosario and the differences between what he's doing in the Arizona Fall League this autumn and what he did all year long in the Minor Leagues.

Of course we finish with beer, baseball, and the news.

65 minutes of postseason fun.

October 17, 2014 04:44 AM PDT

Darren Wolfson returns to Talk to Contact to update us on the Twins' managerial search, and he shares with us some insight on Paul Molitor and more.

Just Paul and Eric on the podcast this week, a throwback to the days before Cody and Jay joined the team, and the brothers spent time talking about the Twins payroll, their indifference to the winter free agency period, and of course, beer, baseball, and the news.

Thanks for listening!
