“He (Esco) catches the balls he’s supposed to catch. He’s got a really strong arm and he’s very sure of himself. Probably not as much range as the other guy, but that’s a lot. You’re talking top of the line there.”

Tony LaRussa was reported as being considered for various GM jobs in the offseson. Having taken 2 mid-market teams to the MLB pinnacle in the past as manager, with a history of developing young talent and avid student of sabremetric analysis, he would be the dream candidate to take the Twins position, ego and all. Is Jim Pohlad intrepid enough to finally bring in a Type A personality to guide and lead all of the young superstars in the current pipeline?

(Oh well, it wasn't like it ever would have occurred to the Twins to consider this "radical" option, anyway. LaRussa's personality would have rocked too many Twins Way wessels.) [/Chekov-off]
