If you’re as antsy as I am for the new year of Twins baseball, there’s plenty of ways to get your fix as Spring Training starts up. Media reports are up-close and personal this year. With 1500 ESPN being the flagship of the Twins Radio Network, there’s plenty of Twins talk from 12 p.m. to around 7 p.m. every day on 1500, and it’s Twins heavy on Reusse and Mackey from 12-3. 1500ESPN.com is also a great place to go…Phil Mackey is spending his time about 2 feet from the squad. He’s posting batting practice, bullpen sessions, and press conference video. You can also follow him on Twitter (@PMac21).
StarTribune.com has also jumped into the immediate-video business. Today they posted a pretty cool video of the infielder “Good Morning America” drill. Their spring training reports are coming hot and heavy as well.
And let’s not forget the old standby…KFAN still has uber-plugged-in Lavelle E. Neal from the Strib checking in with Paul Allen and Dan Barreiro on a regular basis.
There’s lots of intriguing story lines this spring (read: Morneau, starting pitching, Mauer, Nishioka, Casilla, bullpen, Nathan) and this spring you can follow along immediately as the stories break…like never been able to before.
