    Chris Colabello-

    I guess he'll play in Rochester next year. Not a prospect, but a pretty interesting player. If the Twins suffer an injury or 2 involving guys who can play 1st base, it would be pretty cool to see Chris get a shot.

    I will always be a big supporter of guys from D2 or D3 or who came through the independent leagues. Make for great stories. And yes, with all the Twins left-handed bats, he could find a role on the team for a while if things worked out.

    I completely agree we shoud be rooting for Colabello to get a real shot to make the big club this spring. Colabelo could be a fill-in guy for any of these MLB trade pieces: Morneau, Willingham, Parmalee. Plus he is insurance for injury or insurance if we trade some corner IF prospects. He is only 29 or 30 so he has some big seasons left in his bat.

    How close is Roberts to the Show? If Span or others get traded form the MLB outfield...could Roberts step in to a role with the big club in 2013?

    Not very, it seems. I think he's going into Ft. Meyers next year - maybe New Britain. He's never been above Low-A.

    Seth: Help me out. I might have missed something. Is James Beresford still with the Twins? Is he in Australia?

    Yes on both counts. He did resign with the Twins last week, so he'll be back in 2013. He is in Australia, but he won't play in the ABL until after the holidays.
