The temperatures continue to drop, but the Twins Hot Stove Show is just heating up.
The last week has been filled with news about the Twins acquiring starting pitching, and that will be the focal point of this week’s show, which will air Wednesday night from 7-8 p.m. CT on FM 96.3 K-TWIN, across the Twins Radio Network, and on twinsbaseball.com.
Hosts Ron Coomer and Kris Atteberry will kick off the show talking with Twins GM Terry Ryan, then new starter Ricky Nolasco joins the program. They’ll also chat with Glen Perkins to continue his “Offseason Odyssey” segment and get his thoughts on the Twins starting rotation moves.
As always we want fans to join the show’s conversation via Twitter. This week we want to hear what you think should the starting rotation should be for the Twins in 2014?
We’ll be giving away four tickets to a 2014 Twins game to one fan who tweets their Twins starting five with #TwinsHotStove.
While there are certainly new pitchers in the mix, below is the final stats for the 11 pitchers to start for the Twins in 2013. Keep the #TwinsHotStove tweets coming and listen in to see if Kris and Coom agree with your starting rotation picks.
Update: Miss the show? No problem, listen to the replay.
