February 5 Twins Hot Stove Show

We’re down to our second to last Twins Hot Stove Show of the season, but that doesn’t mean the hot stove is simmering down.

Hosts Kris Atteberry and Ron Coomer will be broadcasting live from 7-8 p.m. CT at Target Field. Guests for tonight include Matt Guerrier, who signed a minor league contract to return to the Twins last week, and Bill Smith, who will be calling in to give an update on the Lee County Sports Complex/Hammond Stadium renovation which is nearing completion of Phase 1. Twins Closer Glen Perkins will also join the show to continue his weekly “Offseason Odyssey” segment.

As always we want fans to join the show’s conversation as well. This week we want to know who you predict will man each of the three outfield positions for the Twins on Opening Day? Tweet your answer using #TwinsHotStove and you’ll be entered for a chance to win four tickets to a 2014 Twins game.

Listen live no matter where you are in the world. In the Twin Cities, tune in on FM 96.3 K-TWIN. In other areas you can listen on your local Twins Radio Affiliate, or catch it online on twinsbaseball.com.


December 18 Twins Hot Stove Show

For one more time before the holiday break, the Twins Hot Stove Show fires up with the latest news in Twins Territory.

With the Winter Meetings now in the review mirror, hosts Ron Coomer and Kris Atteberry give their insights on what moves have been made, and what to expect moving forward in the offseason with now only 60 days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training.

Former catcher and current Bench/Catching Coach Terry Steinbach will join the show to give his take on the Twins offseason moves and closer Glen Perkins will call in to continue his “Offseason Odyssey” segment.

Every week we ask fans to join the show’s conversation via Twitter. This week’s topic is MLB Hall of Fame voting. Elections to the Hall will be announced Jan. 8, but we want Twins fans to weigh in first on who they think deserve to be enshrined in Cooperstown.  Click here to see the full list of Hall of Fame candidates.

One fan who tweets their Hall of Fame vote while using #TwinsHotStove will win four tickets to a 2014 Twins game at Target Field.

As always, catch the show live no matter where you are in the world. In the Twin Cities, listen on FM 96.3 K-TWIN. In other areas you can listen on your local Twins Radio Affiliate. Or you can listen online on our website.

Twins Holiday Week of Giving Day Two

The Twins Holiday Week of Giving rolled along today at members of the Twins Front Office volunteered with Rebuilding Together at the Minnesota Transitions Charter School (MTS) in Minneapolis.

Volunteers worked to create new closet spaces that will serve as a place for family members of students of MTS as a community clothing exchange and food shelf.

Photos of the event are below, lots of work, but lots of fun too.
