    Former Twins Offseason Thread

    Saw this morning that Phil Humber had signed a minor league deal with the Oakland A's.

    I thought it would be good to have a forum thread on former Twins as there are several free agents out there with ties to the Twins.

    Joe Nathan is now a free agent after declining his player option with the Rangers yesterday.

    Humber has been a free agent for quite awhile. The free agents that can't be signed quite yet are guys that just became free agents at the end of the World Series.

    How about AJ? Move Mauer to 1b, and break Pinto in as back-up.

    I'd take a flier on Baker too.

    Neshek was on the cusp. Be interesting to see if Oakland does tender him. He missed free agency by a couple of weeks...was sent down in the last month.
