    Doesn't have to be a relief pitcher (or even with the Twins or Rochester or New Britain). If you remember, Perkins was a failed starter and a...

    If Suzuki has decided to test the market, I don't think keeping him will make it more likely he will sign with the Twins. He will be looking for the...
