Twins/Baseball Talkers

Good Lord I'm bored at work.  Let's think about something else besides insurance and a tragedy for a while...

  1.  Be creative.  Come up with some moves that Terry Ryan could have made.  They can be crazy, they can be out-of-the-box, but try and keep it realistic.  You can't trade Rincon, L-Rod, Punto, Ford, Tyner, Ortiz and Buscher for Griffey Jr.
  2.  In the history of the game, come up with a 25-man roster, including starting rotation, lineup, bench.  This one sounds really fun right about now.
  3.  Who can handle more donuts and cheesedip?  Matty LeCroy or C.C. Sabathia?
  4.  On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being least), how excited are you about Barry Bonds breaking the All Time Home Run record?
  5.  Remember in the offseason how there was conversation about the Twins picking up Jason Jennings?  He pitches for Houston now.  Well, he got a PINCH-HIT RBI in the 14th inning last night to win the game.  Should Terry Ryan have traded for Jennings as a bench position player?  Or perhaps should Johan Santana be available to pinch hit more often?  MAYBE...Johan should be the DH on days he doesn't pitch?!?
  6.  Identify two players who could pass through waivers and end up with the Twins by the end of August...assuming we're trying to get better, not trying to sell parts off.
  7.  Did you know the human head weighs eight pounds?
