Target Field renovations for 2018 unveiled

2018-01-19T16:01:51-05:00

Say goodbye to the Metropolitan Club, and hello to the new Bat & Barrel. The Twins quietly announced plans last fall to renovate parts of Target Field over the offseason. It was so quietly announced you probably didn’t even hear about it, but I did. They said they were going to change the Metropolitan Club and concourses in right field, but other than that, not much detail was given. Being the keen investigative journalist that I am, I went down to Target Field back on October 31st to see if I could figure out what was going on. What I found was... Maija Varda Maija Varda ...some kind of renovation involving the Metropolitan Club and the Right Field concourse indeed going on. However, the mystery is now over!

We’re excited to unveil massive enhancements to our right field corner for all fans in 2018. https://t.co/5o7C0nGPT2 pic.twitter.com/uhajIuS0QE— Minnesota Twins (@Twins) January 19, 2018 MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred wants to do something about the pace of play and he’s reportedly considering doing it whether the MLBPA and owners agree or not.

He streams himself playing the video games and you can watch him online.

So put that in your pipe and smoke it. We already knew this, but Justin Morneau is officially retiring. News came out last week that Morneau was joining the Twins front office, but for some reason many outlets did not think that meant he was officially retiring because it didn’t explicitly say that he was officially retiring? But yes, Morneau is officially retiring. The press conference will be held Wednesday at 3:00 pm CT. The Pirates traded Andrew McCutchen to the Giants yesterday and it’s sad. Nick Nelson over at Twins Daily wrote a little retrospective on Joe Nathan and Fernando Rodney in one of the greatest Twins games ever (you know the one). [...]
