Let's play a game.

Joe is anagram-less. But he wants to see how well you do anyway.

Do you know why people like Thursdays? It's because if today is Thursday, that means tomorrow is Friday, and Friday is the weekend. Thursday is like the day before the start of the weekend, and that's something worth looking forward to. And in that same spirit of nonsense, I thought it would be good to have a bit of fun this morning.

I've gone to the Internet Anagram Server and found anagrams for players on the Twins' 40-man roster. I've added punctuation and other bits and pieces for a little creative license, but the end result is the same: see if you can figure out which player fits which anagram.

Not all players are listed, just to keep you on your toes. Feel free to drop your answers in the comments, but if you want to do them on your own be sure to avoid the comments until you're finished...or stumped.

I've put them in alphabetical order, per anagram. Enjoy!
