Player options be damned! This team needs to head north with the 25 best players, PERIOD. I like the pieces they have assembled, but options cloud the one spot that needs to be the best players. Bullpen. If guys who are out of options outperform the guys with options, bring 'em north. If the cast-offs, re-hab projects and/or young kids outperform the no option guys, bring them and risk exposing the rest. If they are that bad nobody will claim them. And if a team does, they become their headache.
A lot of if's re: the Twins this year, but it's Spring Training and I am positive, they will be better than last year. This fan is getting excited:cool:, though I think Morneau is done.
