    That would look horrible to outside players. Nolasco signs a 4-year deal with the Twins and he's traded after 2 starts? No free agent would ever sign here again.

    To answer your question, yes, this will be the worst team of the last 4 years. And I don't think it will be particularly close.

    I'm afraid the offense is going to be historically bad. I don't see...

    4, in about 200 games.

    1. Ball thrown to me during pre-game warmups at Dome in '96 by A's pitcher Jim Corsi.

    I'm very surprised they wouldn't leave the fifth spot alone for some competition in spring training. If Garza were to come on board I wonder if they'd look to trade Correia.

    I'd rather see them...

    One thing I never fully understood is why Morris left after one year. Wouldn't it be extremely enticing to stick around in his home state and pitch for the defending World Series champs? Or did the...

    Curse of Denny Hocking's Injured Finger

    If the Twins never win a World Series again in my lifetime, I will look back to the dog-pile celebration following the Twins' Game 5 victory over Oakland in the 2002 ALDS. Denny Hocking caught the...

    Love the idea of the faceless bobblehead with marker. Especially if it's dry-erase and you can keep playing with it. Should try to sell the team on that one!
