Aaron Gleeman is the poster boy for Twins Blogging, and sports blogging in general. Unable to find his way into Journalism school, he established his personal blog back when "blog" was a little known term.

He has become one of the most established names in sports blogging and is currently employed by NBC Sports. He still finds time to provide some of the best Twins content around on his site, despite his many other writing gigs.

They'll pay a total of $14.225 million to Trevor Plouffe, Tommy Milone, Brian Duensing, Jordan Schafer, […]
