There was an "Only in your Sunday paper" interview with Gardy by LEN3 today. A nice read all around, and I thought it hit on some pretty interesting spots.
Re: 3rd base: Will be Punto/Harris/Valencia mix, depending on performance and, more importantly, scrappitude and get-after-itism.
Re: Backup center fielder: None. But Cuddyer, Punto, and Casilla might be playing some center in spring training just in case.
Re: Neshek: won't be babied.
Re: Mauer and Morneau: during spring training, will be babied as requested
Re: Mijares: Disappointed. Should have been at Twinsfest. May or may not be fat. May or may not have eaten own visa.
