We want happy stats, we want happy stats!
For those of us looking for a reason to buy a Twins hat or even (gasp) a ticket to a game this year, can't you come up with some stats or projections that will warm our hearts on these frigid winter days? Here, I'll start: If Sam Deduno gets that pesky control problem fixed; if Kyle Gibson dominates in spring training; if Hicks, Arcia and Benson tear the cover off the ball all spring; if Florimon learns to read pitchers; if Plouffe starts playing third base like Dave Schmidt; if Morneau arrives in Fort Myers looking like he's 25 again; if Gardenhire loses fifty pounds and starts doing wind sprints with the players; if Parmelee starts swinging the bat like Rafael Palmiero...
Of course, some of these things may not happen, but for sure most of them will!

He apparently can also be a moderately effective pitcher should the need arise."Maybe you could go grab a bat and ball… and learn something. Maybe you will get it."
