1.Twins need a ace starting pitcher. I say we call up KC about greinke as the royals will look to deal him,
pick up kubels option and trade him along with either baker,slowey, blackburn or a prospect for greinke.
2. sign thome for 3 million to be our full time DH also we know his back tightens up and gardy loves giving him days off sign a right handed bench bat with some pop maybe jorge cantu he can play 1st and third and dh against lefties and he had a down yr and should be affordable.
3. sign o dog for 2 yrs 10 million
4. let punto play in rochester and decline his option as soon as humanly possible
4. bullpen crain had a great run that no one saw coming but we should let him walk, guerrier can come back at 3 million just dont let him ever pitch to a-roids i would rather see a position player pitch to him than guerrier. As gardy would say Rauch pitched his tail off and the playoffs and if we can get him cheap we should. We should sign a power arm like jj putz or joaquin benoit or bring the crazy aussie back Grant Balfour his postseason experence would be a plus. so our team should look as follows. also fuentes would be great but im sure will be too expensive.send Randy Flores to class A please.
Greinke,Liriano, Duensing, Baker,Slowey,Blackburn - whoever KC takes and Gibson in Rochester
Nathan,Capps Rauch,Guerrier,Mijares,neshek hopefully back from surgery hell it took liriano 2 yrs. and the lefty no one likes glen bacon eggs and cheese perkins long guy/ spot starter and also s.s manship some role as perkins either on the twins or in Rochester.
Mauer, Morneau no nickname needed. odog, hardy, Valencia, Cantu, Casilla and heaven forebid tolbert
Michael i am making way too much $ Cuddyer
Repko for .75 mil
and last but not least replace Scotty ullcer with none other than Mike Redmond.
