The final two weeks of spring training have arrived, and the races are heating up. All around, there seem to be deadlocks. At catcher, there is still no favorite to be Joe Mauer's backup, the infielders fighting for the final bench spot are struggling, and there seems to be uncertainty in the team's plans for the bullpen. Can guys like Mike Maroth or Anthony Slama sneak into the race down the stretch? Who might have the slight advantages in the seemingly deadlocked competitions? Who might pull away before the team breaks camp for two exhibition games at Target Field next weekend?
