There are a couple of creative expression moves here, namely Jacque Jones playing center field, but it's not as though he's never done it before. Also, since it's an "ex-Twins" team, Castro's numbers are only his stats in his time with the Reds. The batting order is a little lefty-heavy, and the starting rotation is a little thin with Carrasco (3 starts in '06) and Fultz (1 start) at the end.  Overall, however, you could definitely do worse with a team of ex-players.  You have a lot of doubles hitters and some pop in the middle of the order, and your bullpen has an abundance of experience (if it isn't quite reliable).

This post, by the way, signals the return of just not the internet, but my computer (what a mess).  The offseason isn't even underway and the World Series is still going on, so be sure to stop back regularly for a dose of Twins luvin'.

Thanks to everyone who's been doing the heavy lifting in my absence.  Cmathewson breaks down the new CBA, Roger gets us up to date on Fall League info, wcooley starts a great debate about the stadium and TT raises questions about the 40-man roster.  Thanks, everyone, it's GREAT to be back!!
