Where’s the other $30million they supposed spend?

Maybe they’ll “surprise” everyone and they’ll make a movie about the twins triumphic run to an American League pennent…

Or maybe some kid will wish upon a star and angels guide the team to victory.

Or maybe they’ll just lose 102 games and cut the payroll another 8-10 million next yr and feed the fans some more lines…God bless ya Terry Ryan. So glad your back in the saddle! Where’s Scott stoviahak and rich Becker when we need them?

Sounds like the Twins aren’t interested in moving him, but that would sure clear up a problem with our 40 man. My guess is that we have some fat to trim there anyway…

Theilbar? Wood? Butera?

Ramirez? Robertson?

If he’s strictly a defensive replacement/get away day starter, then it’s better to have his putrid bat on the bench not getting at bats than some of the other options we have.

Let the young guys get some regular at bats in Triple A… I guess.

His spot is seemingly there for needed players to rotate through and shuffle back and forth to the minors. I guess the Twins feel his hot streak in spring training and his loyalty to come back warrant a 30-50 AB opportunity.

I guess its good to know that after our 5 man rotation we will have 2 or 3 other options who are good enough to make our rotation but not good enough to stick around.
