Hey everyone, I have an episode of Rhino and Compass Radio coming this afternoon at 3pm. Link here.

MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota starter Nick Blackburn ended last year in the minor leagues, and it appears doubtful that he'll start the 2013 season in the majors.
The team announced Monday that Blackburn will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right wrist Wednesday at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. The surgery means that Blackburn will be in a cast for six weeks, which means he will...
The Minnesota Twins starting rotation has been a work in progress all

Steinbach...

I think the question leads to unfair conclusions that this off-season has been entirely about Ryan and his decision...
MINNEAPOLIS Sure, it might be the heart of hockey season in the State of Hockey, especially with the NHL starting back up this week. But for Ron Gardenhire and the Minnesota Twins, this week also indicates a step closer to baseball season.
On Monday, Gardenhire and other Twins players and coaches began the annual Winter Caravan, a lead-up to TwinsFest later this month at the Metrodome...
