    Thanks for the support Shane, I have been comparing ALL our lists. That is why some of these don't seem to fully make sense (Kepler but not polanco) but I think your right putting Watts back in. I am fairly convinced neither Kepler nor Polanco are on his list at this point...

    I don't know what is on Seth's mind, but I'd probably throw Aaron Thompson on his list.

    I haven't tried to guess Seth's 11 - but I think that might help you guys out.

    I don't think I'd make that assumption...

    I assume that was an attempt at humor, right?

    I thought there was no way this went back down and could be anything other than 9!

    I need a spreadsheet.

    Back to the drawing board. It's be one thing if it were clear by now any 6 or 7 of these guys. I am not sure what you are going for here, Seth. Wimmers and Roberts off list because the injuries would scare other teams off too much?

    Achter, Darnell, Beresford, Vargas, Polanco, Kepler, Watts, Salcedo, Dean, Turpen (Turpen, really????--I swear it seems based on what you have said . . . ), Fuentes.

    Wait, 6 of these 7 are on Seth's list:

    Darnell, Achter, Romero, Kepler, Watts, Vargas, and Wimmers (from post 23)

    From post 38: six of the following are on the list:

    Darnell, Achter, Romero, Kepler, Vargas, Wimmers, Beresford, Ibarra, Knudson, Roberts, Salcedo

    So what the hell? Let's say the wrong assumption was made and that Watts is on Seth's list. So 5 of the first 6 are on Seth's list. That would mean that Seth thinks the Twins are adding one of: Beresford, Roberts, and Salcedo. This is not rational for the Twins to do. The guy added *must* be Beresford, however. There is no way they are going to risk someone close enough to help infield defense. No way.

    Salcedo and Roberts safe because of injury history/slash not playing in AA yet. I get that, I suppose. I could see some team taking a chance though.

    So I have to think irrationally to get this damn 11 done.

    Thinking rationally, and *this* list needs no numeric response!:

    If choosing only 11:

    Achter, Beresford, Romero, Darnell, Ibarra, Ortiz, Watts, Wimmers, Vargas, and then Kepler and Polanco, if concerned about that latter two--if not--Roberts and Salcedo.

    That's 3 (4) relievers, 2 starters, 0 catchers, 2 (2) outfielders, and 4 (3) infielders.

    I really don't understand how the 11 could be not taken from this group of 13.

    Completely serious. I'm not going to try to de-code the other lists and how many they got right... so here's my list of 11, without a lot of thought.

    Polanco, Beresford, Kepler, Vargas, Boyer, Darnell, Achter, Wimmers, Ibarra, Thompson, Hauser

    I think 3 of those are very unlikely.

    Just remember that it is my list of 11 possibilities. My honest opinion is that they'll likely add six, maybe seven.

    I'll not give you the exact same answer, but I'll try to help by giving you were I rank them. In other words, most likely add (in my opinion) is #1, then #2, etc. So, in your list above, you have my 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10.

    8 of these, apparently. But you did us a solid and only listed 10, so that helps.

    I swear it has gotta be no to Dean and Fuentes.

    But you didn't have Beresford or Watts. But it would seem given all that Seth has said that they aren't included. How has no one gotten 9????

    I just got 8, but Seth's 2nd most likely, 9th most likely, and 11th most likely are out there.

    I have no idea who the 2nd most likely add is.
