Why become a member?

Become a member to support the 5 Thoughts newsletter on the Minnesota Twins, written every week by me, Derek Wetmore. There is a nonzero chance that you’ll love it. Early membership support allowed me to stick with baseball during a year that was challenging for many of us.

During the 2021 offseason, I’m sticking to a publishing schedule of 2x per week, and several of our loyal members continue to push for a podcast of some kind.

How much does it cost?

I also write a free version of the column on the Twins, and a a minimum the first full column of every month gets sent to everyone who is signed up, whether with a free membership or Subscriber.

So, yes, access to a lot of the work does come for free. If you enjoy this kind of work and would like to ensure we can sustain it into the future, please consider supporting the column with a monthly subscription.

Monthly Subscription: $5/month
Annual Subscription: $48/year (20% discount)

What do I get?

In addition to all the benefits and full access to archives, comments and the very latest columns, becoming a Subscribing Member means you’re joining a community. This community shares your unbridled enthusiasm about the Twins and preference-bordering-requirement for level-headed analysis.

If you’d like to check it out, write me to ask about a free trial. I know monthly budgets are important!

Thanks for checking us out today. Looking forward to having you around here more often.
