      The only thing I disagree with is that we were in contention until June or July. Looking forward to the handbook. It is always well done.

      Is a paypal account required? I opted not to create one and it told me "Sorry, your last action could not be repeated." I've never had this problem before with ebay or any other online shopping, so I have no idea if the transaction worked.

      Done. It's been a great piece of work the past couple of seasons, and time and effort you guys put into it is much appreciated.

      Private message me your full name and I'll take a look at the transaction logs.

      Well, they were never really in contention, but up until then they were at least within 10 games of first place, giving us some faint illusion of relevancy.

      Done! And I *really* like that cover photo. It says so, so much about everything with this organization. Joe looks for other competent players. Joe looks at empty seat. Joe proudly wears his catching gear for the last time.

      Thanks. I searched for quite some time before finding that picture, which so accurately portrays the 2013 season.

      The second option was of a player getting spiked in the nuts. Also appropriate.

      I just finished my 40 man roster projections article... I wrote about 11 players that I think the Twins could add. As I posted on Twitter, the first person to guess (in the comments below) which 11 players I think could be added will win a free copy of the Offseason GM Handbook, on me. Get your guesses in.

      Mike Pelfrey x 11.

      Now give me my free handbook, dammit.

      Note - This would be current Twins minor leaguers who could be added to the Twins 40 man roster in November... not Free Agents or anything like that.

      Eleven huh? How about Alex Meyer, James Beresford, Deibinson Romero, AJ Achter, Miguel Sano, Pat Dean, Duke Welker, Dakota Watts, Eddie Rosario, Kennys Vargas, Byron Buxton. If you're not counting Duke yet then Adrian Salcedo.

      Welker is already a 40 man roster guy, so he isn't included in the 11.
      Meyer, Sano, Rosario and Buxton do not have to be added to the 40 man roster, so they won't be.

      I have 16 guys listed, Seth. Now I just have to figure out what you think about the Kepler and Polanco situation and probably some relievers . . .

      Alright then. I bought the handbook anyway, anticipating my wrong answer.

      Well, if I don't get it, someone very soon is going to do so:

      Achter, Vargas, Beresford, D. Romero, Rohlfing, Dean, Oliveros, D. Ortiz, Wimmers, Kepler, Polanco

      I have a few more possibilities.

      Good grief, I left out one obvious guy.

      Darnell, Achter, Vargas, Beresford, D. Romero, Rohlfing, Dean, D. Ortiz, Wimmers, Kepler, Polanco.
