    Neither interest me unless were talking about managerial candidates once Gardenhire gets fired for losing with the pre-Kelly Leake Bad News Bears. Than I'd give Inge an interview.

    If Inge could still serve as emergency catcher, the Twins could probably do worse than him as a bench player. Still a very solid defensive 3B (and can play other positions in a pinch) and provides a little RH pop which has value at Target Field.
    Papers...business papers.

    BORING! I would sign Marcum. Why even bother if you can't sign one good pitcher?

    Hey, we can add Orlando Hudson, Jason Bartlett and Chone Figgins. 2B/SS/CF....right up the middle taken care of. Bring in Kyle Lohse as the #1 starter. Have Delmon Young as DH and bench bat. Man, we're getting a team together...let's play us some real baseball!

    Are there any other options that you haters would suggest? Is there anyone in the minors you can think of? I'm just wondering what TR will do to find "competition for Plouffe", which he has said he wants to have. Will we just end up with Jamey Carroll as the only competition?

    Not liking old, putrid, and potentially development-inhibiting options makes people "haters" now?


    I'm a hater.

    +1.

    An Inge-or-Yuney choice reminds me of this exchange from Moneyball:

    Billy Beane: "Would you rather get one shot in the head or five in the chest and bleed to death?"

    Peter Brand: "Are those my only two options?"

    Like that's any worse than Inge and Betty?

    Hows about the million dollar major league GM finds someone to help the team win that a bunch of schlubs on a message board with no resources can't?
