    I agree, Hughes is an excellent "change of scene" candidate! I do believe he'll be a different pitcher here. Some of those Yankee Stadium home runs might still become Target Field doubles, but having Buxton and Hicks in the outfield soon will also help.

    I think the key to the Twins season will be starting pitching. Yes, we've got a couple of upgrades and if Hughes can keep the ball in the park, I would have to agree that he'd be a much different pitcher. By the way, while we're talking about pitching, many people would say that pitching is anywhere from 75-90 percent of the game. Point is, keep the ball in the park and keep runs from scoring.

    Josh Johnson has signed with the Padres.

    I wish I could remember who it was, but someone here at TD took the home runs that Hughes had allowed in Yankee stadium and overlayed where they landed on top of a Target Field layout.
    Pretty much all the home runs in NY would have been home runs at TF.

    1. It was a pretty cool tool that he had gotten from Fangraphs, and
    2. If you want to see a grand improvement from Hughes you are going to have to see most of it from a reduction in his very high BABIP.

    IMHO, I think Jimenez is going to cost a fortune. Someone will throw a boatload of money at him.

    Still would prefer to see Garza and Kazmir.
