After a week off celebrating 2014 and welcoming in 2015, the podcast crew was back together (minus a Rolf) to begin a new year of Talk to Contact radio gold. This week we make some New Year's resolutions on behalf of the Twins, to include Joe Mauer, Aaron Hicks and prayers for something (ANYTHING!) resembling a starting pitcher not named Phil Hughes.
In this week's reviewing the roster segment, we take a look at the 2014 contributions of Caleb Thielbar, Ricky Nolasco and Oswaldo Arcia. We prognosticate on what 2015 will bring for the three and whether they will be a big part, or no part, of the 2015 Twins team.
When we go Down on the Pond we discuss the future potential of minor league short stop Engelb Vielma, who played last season with low-A Cedar Rapids. Will he become the next great Twins star, or even crack the big league roster?
And finally we spend more time than it probably deserved discussing the 2015 Hall of Fame balloting, elections and snubs.
Enjoy the show.
