Memorial Day 2011, our PhD Committee is back in beautiful Minneapolis but what a difference a year makes.  The Twins are struggling and in last place. Ed interviews Stew Thornley about Harmon Killebrew.  Frank Ceresi shares his thoughts on MLB veteran Hank Gowdy and and our PhD Committee debates whether playoff expansion is wise.  Then we pack up for the Motor City.  Next week, it’s time to ponder whether the Tigers can catch those Indians?

This week is Twins’ week with our podcast featuring the Minnesota Twins being released on Friday, May 27th.  On May 17th, Twins slugger Harmon Killebrew passed away.  During our podcast Ed Kasputis, Creative Director of Baseball PhD will be interviewing baseball researcher, Stew Thornley about the legacy of Harmon Killebrew.

“I saw Harmon Killebrew play in the first Major League game that I ever attended,” said Ed Kasputis.  “In my opinion, Killebrew was the greatest right handed hitter of my youth.  While he was only 5’11” he played like a giant.”

His Nickname was “Killer”
