    I really think it will be Mauer. Brain injuries trump stubborn.
    Plouffe maybe, no way you stick Sano at 1B yet.

    I'd like to see a way to keep Colabello and Parmelee as a platoon 1B, part-time RF (Parms), part-time DH combo. It would give us added pop off the bench. I'm not sure this can happen unless they don't keep 3 catchers or don't keep a backup OF who can play CF. This would also assume that Escobar is the lone utility IF. The chances would be better if they deal Willingham or Doumitt.

    I agree that brain injuries trump stubborn.

    Also, I have read that ESPN people say Sano's arm is too strong to hide at 1B.
    If he cannot stay at 3B they want to see him in RF.

    1)No. RF or DH for Arcia
    2)No, I Think a platoon of Calobello and Parmalee with a sprinking of Mauer or even Plouffle is a decent patchwork until someone steps ups and takes the position. I wouldn't be againist signing Morneau. He might be too expansive for TR though.
    3)Maybe. If his concussion(s) continue to be a problem
    4)Maybe. I think he can and would be a really cool story. His AAA numbers are silly. He deserves a shot.
    5)No. I think we have enough options at least for next year (another non-competing year)

    I can't see Joe ever giving up catching. He is too stubborn. When we make our move, I believe Parmelee and Colabello will be long gone. I have no problem with Justin coming back on a team friendly deal. I understand RBI's no longer have any meaning, but you still need a guy who hits the ball that causes his teammates to cross the plate. There is no metric for veteran leadership. Good blog Oldgoat_MN.
