When he’s not listening to police scanners, chatting with tipsters or directing news crews, he’s watching and talking about the Minnesota Twins.
Peter began contributing to the WCCO.COM’s Twinsblog during the 2007 season. He won an Upper Midwest Regional Emmy for his editing work on the blog’s videos in 2009.

Some idiots are rooting for #100. They’re either nuts or Royals fans.
Star Wars was the first movie I saw.
The Minnesota Twins were the guardians of peace and justice in the Central Division before the dark times … before the 2011 season.
A year ago this wasn’t possible, but now you can get into Target Field for peanuts.
My girlfriend and I are on a mini vacation from our regular lives and working on a baseball reconnaissance mission.
Monday was Jim Thome Day. Now it’s turning into Jim Thome week and rightly so.
