Episode 65: Tom Kelly’s Zubaz versus Nelson Prada

Episode 65 is out for your listening enjoyment. Happy New Year from all of the gang at Talk to Contact. We debated titling the podcast after Twins Coach Nelson Prada who wore #65 a few years ago, but anytime Tom Kelly‘s zubaz come up on conversation you are required to title said conversation after those wonderful pants.  You can download the new Talk to Contact (@TalkToContact) episode via iTunes or by clicking here.

tom-kelleyAfter a holiday hiatus the Talk to Contact podcast returns will all of the usual contributors. Up for discussion this week is Chris Colabello declining a trip to Korea, the make-up of the Twins opening day outfield, former Twins making comebacks and a rousing of debate of whether or not Kurt Suzuki will play a meaningful role for the Twins in 2014.

 We go down on the pond and take a look at the Twins 2013 4th round draft pick, Stephen Gonsalves (LHP), discuss whether a shandy should even be considered a beer and talk about moves from around the rest of the MLB, including possible landing spots for Masahiro Tanaka and the potential for the Houston Astros to contend in the AL West this coming season. All of that and more on this week’s podcast.

 Enjoy the podcast.

  1. On the one hand, I’m honored to have been Eric’s third round draft choice in the draft of Twins-related Twittererererers.

    On the other hand, there’s a part of me that recalls Grouch Marx’s famous quote, “I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member,” and it almost… almost… makes me inclined to give up my spot on Eric’s “team.”

  2. Also, just as an FYI, Nelson Prada was a minor league manager in the Twins organization for several years. Prior to last season, he had been managing the MWL affiliate Beloit Snappers. With Jake Mauer replacing him as their Class A manager with the move to Cedar Rapids, Prada moved on to the Phillies organization where he managed their Short-season Class A affiliate in Williamsport last summer.
