First, we have a quick Fantasy Update* (thanks again to @velcrojared for the theme). Please let us know everyone's names (and smash that like button) because we're very confused.
Then, we forced ourselves to move onto the Twins. We take a quick look at season, have a brief overview of offseason goals, discuss next year's rotation (including some discussion of a weird pitching strategy of nibbish and DK's (hmm, maybe we'll talk about that more someday)), and then go over some hard truths about position players.
Thankfully, we discovered it's a lot more fun to talk about fun teams, so we go over our predictions (and hopes) for the playoffs. To give you an idea of how much credence you should give us, our first prediction is very wrong!
*I should note that ben's bens were actually tied for 1st place in the baseball league. The league page has him noted as both tied for 1st or in 2nd. However, you're first in our book, ben. Congratulations to the co-champions (and sorry for the omission)!
Hey gang! Well, we tried to record this in full, but schedules are complicating things (nibbish got a new puppy or something I don't know). Anyway, DK, DG, and I were able to get in some quick Wild talk as Kaprizov is now safely a member of the Wild for the next few years. We also look at other signings, the draft, and the year ahead. We go to break at the end of the episode, which hopefully means we'll pick it up again sometime soon. Enjoy!
Hey, gang! I know I say this every year, but I think the mix turned out pretty great this year. Like last year, the easiest way to consume it is to look up WGOM on your favorite podcast app (except the spotty one). I'll set up a link shortly to download the full file if that's your thing.
Anyway, here's your mix!

Well, friends, it's about that time again. Toss your nominations below.
1. The theme is "Summer". You're free to interpret that as you'd like.
2. Put your nominations in a Spoiler box.
3. You may nominate up to 3 songs. Any further nominations will be ignored.
4. Unless we get an insane amount of nominations for some reason, everyone's first choice is automatically in. The rest of the mix will be filled out with the other nominations.
Hey, gang. There's not much fun Twins talk, so Daneeka's Ghost came back to discuss the Wild before they go into the playoffs. We all know how this will end, but we wanted to keep things as bright and shiny as possible.
We unfortunately did not have the constitution to keep up the rosiness when we did actually get to the Twins, but it needed to be discussed anyway. So we did, and that was... yeah.
We did the thing again. This was recorded on Monday night. Topics include:
Is a chili bread bowl a sandwich (featuring hungry joe misusing the word "posit")?
A rundown of this years Hall of Fame ballot.
A random movie review to fill a little time (SPOILERS)
A look at the Twins 40-man roster before the deadline to protect players from the Rule 5 draft (not featuring the part of our discussion where we fumbled around trying to figure out the lower rounds of the Rule 5 draft).
