    If the Twins had five other starters consistantly doing the same same or better, then there'd be a question as to another start. As it is he stays, he starts.

    This is the exact question I had when I first read of Kendrys signing! It's pretty clear to me the FO hasn't written this year off yet.

    Having an actual backup CFer would be a nice change, Fuld fits the bill, so I'll be happy to see his return.

    We have an emergency catcher, he plays 1st base, no need for backup backup catcher.

    Back to the original topic. What happens with Colabello, and the log jam at first base now that he's not going to Korea? As well as the roster spot issue?

    I had assumed that this would be the case. Isn't the idea to get the best milage out of your 25? The situation has changed now that Mauer is at first, you no longer have the concussion and lower...

    We'll see how it works out, but what I'd like to see happen is Pinto and Suzuki split catching starts something close to 50-50. Catcher is a tough position and a bit less wear and tear may help keep...

    I think JB_Iowa's list of Nolasco/Hughes/Pelfrey/ Correia/Worley is as reasonable a prediction as any. With Gibson, K Johnson, Albers in the minors and Deduno on the DL. Not sure where that leaves...

    This I agree with. Pair a solid vet catcher with Pinto, Suzuki is probably the best remaining, especially if he can get over the injury issue and get back to some semblance of his former self.

    True, though I certainly don't know just how aggressive they were with FA catchers. My understanding is they put good effort into signing AJ, but had they felt thy absolutely needed to sign an...

    You're certainly not going to go out of your way to identify possible issues with your anticipated starter when negotiating with his backup. Most of us wouldn't consider that a very effective...

    With AJ off the market, and Salty being a pretty expensive option, Arencipia looks like he's worth a good look at.

    I think it was TR who was at one point quoted as saying they didn't expect/plan to give up a draft choice, never said it wasn't a possibility.

    With our primary catching options now being Doumit, Pinto and maybe Hermann I can't see how you don't at least consider what's on the free agent market. How does Salty's addition subtract from this...

    Am I missing something? Maybe Hicks playing deep does suggest a lack of confidence, but that's not how I'd be inclined to look at it. It always seemed to me that better athletic ability, accurate...

    I'd sure hate to see him traded, I find him a lot more enjoyable to watch than most anyone else on the staff. But no one is sacred, if the right price is offered ya have to at least give it some...

    Generally speaking I have more faith than belief, but I do know I really like to watch Deduno pitch. I'm glad he pitches for the Twins, and am guardedly more optimistic now about his future with the...

    No one is surprised by Dozier at 2B, that was the plan all along, the good news is it doesn't sound like a disaster. If Dozier is settling in at 2B then that makes sorting out SS just that much...
