I'm pretty pissed at the Twins right now...
Perzynski, Guardado, Hawkins and Milton (all former all stars except LaTroy) have all been dealt (for crap) or not signed
They resigned Shannon Stewart but haven't done anything else, I fully expect the White Sox and Royals to pass them this year. Looks like the dream is over yet again
So far, the Twins re-signed:
[/sarcasm] Woo-pee! [sarcasm]
I agree we needed him, but we have a TON of OF prospects we refuse to trade (Mohr, Cud, Resto, Ford, etc). He's the lowest priority of the three FAs we had.
AND, we've lost:
PLUS, the guys we didn't resign:
That's EIGHT of the 27 main starters from last year.
Don't even get me started on the Jones and Dougie trade rumors
Terry Ryan has his hands full to get things right before Feb...

OCB you can join me on the Cubs (Prior) bandwagon. Mark Prior shoulda been a Twin anyway so I'll just root for him next year... I'm definately not gonna go Brew-Crew though! Down with Bud!
My brother lives in CT and saw Mauer on a regular basis with the New Britan Rock Cats (AA). He said Mauer can be a stud eventually, but needs a LOT of work to get there. There were times when he gunned down a runner at 2nd base by 4-5 steps and other times where he gunned the ball to the Center Fielder!
