    Arcia and Colabello for Doumit and Morneau by the end of the season, perhaps. Maybe Willingham will be gone in place of one of the two I listed. I see Colabello getting a chance to DH and play some first base for the Twins sometime this year. It is hard to say if he will be able to hit well in the big leagues, but it is a good story and he is demonstrating enough ability to be considered for a spot.

    Colabello is certainly an interesting guy. Makes you kind of wonder why no team ever looked at him before, as his CAMA numbers were excellent for years.

    In a book whose title I cannot remember, Bill James talked about Brian Harper being that sort of player. He always had the skills. Too bad he didn't really get a chance until much of his career was behind him.

    On the other hand, I cannot see benching Justin so that Chris can play. A bench role might be appropriate. It will be interesting to see how they handle him.

    What would you do to get him on the 40 man roster?
