We are 28 days away but the Twins are still making some headlines leading up to it. We are in the running for former Cy Young Pitcher E Gagne. He may not be the pitcher of 2003 but the second half of last year he was a very good bullpen option for the Brewers. I would not mind seeing Gagne pitch the 7Th or 8Th inning for the Twins.
News also came out this week that the Twins have passed the halfway point in spending money that is being used to build the stadium. (Any chance they change from Target Field to Carl Pohlad Memorial Field)
The outside of the stadium should be pretty much complete by the end of 2009. And the Twins will hopefully get the key to the park on March 3rd 2010.
News also came out that the Twins are nearing a Franchise record in season ticket sales. They should hit 11,000 season tickets sold before opening day. Amazing what getting seating priority for a new stadium for ticket sales..
It is nice that even when the Twins are not on the field we still get a little bit of baseball to talk about.
