Neither Sano or Duffey would be on my playoff roster

Has Sano tried to come back? Doesnt seem like it does it?

I thought T Duffey was great, but he clearly isnt performing, I would leave him and Sano off
my playoff roster

Sanp would be a wonderful bench bat and possible DH. The Twins could, conceivably, go with a four man rotation and 7 pitchers in the pen. Who would be those BEST seven? Better yet, who is the odd starter out (Mejia, Colon)?


I might be hard-pressed to keep DUffey on the 40-man, depending on the state of prospects. Granted, so many of the potential 40-man prospects probably won't start the season with the Twins (Rosario, Jorge, Romero, Curtiss, Enns, Moya, Littell as examples) that the Twins will need journeymen to fill in the holes. But, again, if you have NO HOLES on the 40-man, who stays and who goes.


I'd love to see Sano's right handed bat against the Yankees. They killed us with left handed pitching last series. He's hurt though, so it's kind of a moot point.
