April Fools!

The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are tied for first place, and will be until Sunday night. No, seriously!

In other news, the Twins have decided all but one spot on their 25-man roster to begin the season. I've talked about all of the decisions plenty already, but to recap:

- Lew Ford deserves to be on a major league roster.

- Jose Offerman, most likely, does not.

- Michael Ryan is on the team almost entirely because he is left-handed and had an amazing 61 at bat stint last season.

- Grant Balfour should be the fifth starter, not Brad Thomas, but they both made the team and the Twins are going to skip the fifth guy plenty anyway, so it's not a huge deal.

- Mike Nakamura, whom the Twins sent to the minors a long time ago, is a far better pitcher than any of the guys they are thinking about keeping for the final spot on the team.

I think that about covers it.

Oh, by the way, did everyone see John "Twins Geek" Bonnes' announcement that he's moving his blog over to Congrats John!
