Friday Links-N-Thinks

For the last week I have felt like I was in the midst of a let-down after the fun and excitement at TwinsFest last weekend. The Twins are pushed up to their self imposed $100 million payroll so there hasn't been much action in the free agent market for the club. It seems the team will head to spring training with their current roster of players and hope to get the most out of the pitchers and position players on the 40-man roster.

Fans of collecting baseball cards were excited by the release of Series 1 of 2012 Topps Baseball Cards in the middle of the week. There are rookie cards of Joe Benson, Liam Lendriks, and Chris Parmelee. Fans can also pull a Tsuyoshi Nishioka special variant card with him and Drew Butera messing around on the bench, an appropriate location for these two players.
Here are some of the stories I enjoyed from the last week from across the world of baseball.
My Weekly Rundown:
Video of the Week: In honor of Groundhogs Day and the infamous movie staring Bill Murray, the question was asked about what sporting event you would love to live over and over again. There are some great moments in Twins history from Game 163 in 2009 to their first World Series win in 1987. For me I would have loved to be present at Game 6 of the 1991 World Series for the heroics that took place by Kirby Puckett. It's a moment that Twins fans would love to live over and over again.
