I haven't listened to the podcast yet, but my first thought after reading the headline for this article was: What are Twins doing now? Are they doing another Pat Dean and bringing back another marginal pitcher like A.J. Achter? And then I saw the part about him being a college coach. Whew!

Time for predictions?
