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.

Twins acquire Eduardo Nunez from Yankees for Miguel Sulbaran
via Aaron Gleeman April 08, 2014 at 08:26 PM
