Offseason Aquisitions

Checking up on the Twins who were not to be

A lot of names were brought up in the offseason to fill the Twins' gaping DH hole.  I will periodically check up on these players to see if the Twins made the right decision.

Rondell White Twins 2.5 mil .150 .157 .163 0hr 5rbi
But Souhan says he's a good guy and he has "hit some balls hard" this year

Mike Piazza Padres 1.25 mil .228 .262 .439 3hr 6rbi
There are only two people that thought Piazza could be an everyday catcher...Piazza and Kevin Towers

Frank Thomas A's 500k .194 .266 .431 5hr 11rbi
An injury waiting to happen

Jim Thome  White Sox 14 mil .333 .505 .788 9hr 21rbi
Only Sid really thought the Twins could sign him

Jacque Jones Cubs 4 mil .200 .255 .420 3hr 9rbi
Already being booed in Wrigley

Nomar Garciaparra Dodgers 6 mil .188 .278 .438 1hr 4rbi
If you thought the Twins should sign him you have some explaining to do

So the pickings were quite slim, unless I missed someone.  I still think Rondell could emerge with the best numbers from this group, if he stays healthy and makes some adjustments.
