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.
