    Hmm, 3rd catcher who can sorta play OF, or real OF who can also play CF? Ok since he's not on the 40-man, kind of a problem for Mastro.

    Worse team of all time? No. But this past winter wasn't the coldest I've lived through. This Twins season will be like last winter--not the worst, but rather unpleasant.

    I call this "preparing the ground". It has been surmised that all of the millions spent on pitching won't result in a contender--so blame the players. Start with the group "competing for a job". ...
