      In fact, Seth, my assumption that Beresford HAD to be one of them kept me in mess-up land for a few pages!

I think he is exactly the guy to keep around if anything involving Florimon, Dozier, and Rosario doesn't work out.
      He was strongly considered. In previous years, I only noted NINE, but this year I bumped it up to 11. I wouldn't be at all shocked if Beresford is added. I'd be happy for him. I'd be completely fine with it.

      I just have a very hard time believing that the Twins aren't going to protect Wimmers, given where he was drafted, and the potential there if healthy.

      And personally I would trade Doumit for some pitcher, so in that case Rohlfing would make sense as an add. Otherwise, I don't see it happening.

      I appreciate that you called me a Non-Winner rather than just a loser. Ha!

      And, I agree!

      So no Salcedo.

      Good god, has his name been mentioned in this thread? I cannot think of who on earth else it could be.

      Are Richardson or Reynaldo Rodriguez involved here?

      I would hope not. I cannot imagine anyone else over Beresford.

      I had to stop half way through and make some popcorn.
