The contract Glen Perkins has with the Minnesota Twins goes through at least 2017, so the All-Star closer wouldn’t have to think about switching teams for a while. He already has. He would never do it.
The Minnesota Twins have announced three more assistants for new manager Paul Molitor, adding pitching coach Neil Allen, bullpen coach Eddie Guardado and bench coach Joe Vavra. Allen was the pitching coach for the Tampa Bay Rays for the last four seasons. He’s the only hire for Molitor’s staff so far from outside the organization.
Growing up in Minnesota, Glen Perkins knows just how special the All-Star Game is. “This was a pipe dream a long time ago,” he said.
St. Paul Saints pitcher Mark Hamburger has, perhaps, the best name in baseball. In fact, he was in a YouTube video contest for it. “I lost to Rowdy Hardy, which I don’t really like because Rowdy’s his nickname” Hamburger said. “If I was using nicknames, my nickname is “Cheese.” So if I was “Cheese Hamburger” you know I would’ve won.”
