Welcome Back, Eddie Guardado

Twins pick up southpaw.

As we discussed last week, the bullpen-starved Twins have been looking all month for a way to improve their prospects post-starter, including picking up our own former closer Eddie Guardado.

Now, it seems, he's back.

LEN III says the Twins will decide today on who gets the boot to make room for Guardado.  My short list on candidates include Craig Breslow, Mike Lamb and Randy Ruiz.

In return, the Twins are sending RHP Mark Hamburger to the Rangers, which is too bad because I'd love nothing more than to cheer for a guy with a name like that.  Hamburger, 21, had been spending the season in Elizabethton with the Appalachian Rookie League.
