A Twins Present For You

That's right, it's that time of year, and I'd like to give readers a chance to win the must have Twins Christmas present. Without followers on Twitter or readers here at Off The Baggy, the Twins insight and analysis provided would fall on deaf ears. As much as I enjoy blogging and tweeting Twins information, I know that the interaction between readers is what takes it to the next level.

So, let's get into this giveaway. Each year Seth Stohs (@sethtweets) Jeremy Nygaard (@jeremynygaard), and Cody Christie (@NoDakTwinsFan) put together the most in depth and impressive look at the Twins farm system. Upon completion, it is known as the Minnesota Twins prospect handbook. Here's a description of the project from the 2015 version:

The 2015 Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook goes in-depth and provides player bios, scouting reports, statistics and much more on almost 160 Twins minor leaguers. From Abreu to Zoquiel, from Baez to Williams, learn more about some of the Future Minnesota Twins.

This year, I'd like to make sure at least two of my followers and readers get the book as well. I will purchase the copy of your choice (paperback or eBook) for two winners. What gets even better is that not only is entering simple, but it's also interactive.

I want to hear from you!

The 2016 Minnesota Twins season is set up to be one of the most exciting in recent memory. After a near playoff run a season ago, the year ahead should provide an opportunity to take that next step. This gets to your part.

Tell me what you see as the biggest storyline for the Twins in 2016. Is it that Paul Molitor's club turns the corner in the bullpen? Who's the next breakout star? Is the club a dark horse for a World Series run? Come up with your storyline for the year ahead, write a brief paragraph detailing why you believe it to be true, and provide some supporting evidence. On December 25, I'll choose two winners who will be contacted to receive their 2016 Twins Prospect Handbook.

To enter:

  • Email your 2016 Twins storyline to
  • Include your name and Twitter handle
  • Must be following @tlschwerz on Twitter
  • Entries must be received by 11:59 pm CT on December 24
I'm looking forward to what you have to say! Not only will the two winners receive Twins Prospect Handbooks, but the two best storylines will also be featured in an upcoming Off The Baggy post.

Go Twins, thanks for reading Off The Baggy, and Merry Christmas!
