    Naked batting practice is fun for the whole family!

    Think they'd let him park his boat out at short?

    Probably not, but his range should be about three feet...stationary.

    What, you don't enjoy going out and watching a player swing their wood around?

    Juan Berenguer, just so I can see Senor Smoke do the Berenguer Boogie one more time.

    Dennys Reyes, as references to "The Big Sweat" never get old.

    I think Jack Morris could still induce a couple of ground balls.

    Bring back that goofy R.A. Dickey guy. Watching batters wave at his knuckle balls was hilarious!

    Sign Ugeth Urbina and put him in charge of the defense. I can see him chasing fielders around with his machete and gas can after yet another error.

    Let's keep the 80s alive and bring in Jamie Moyer. I'd wager he could put up #s that'll match that bum we signed from Pittsburg.
    BYTO R.I.P.

    Orlando Cabrerra...doesn't that insure a playoff spot? Bring back Thome! Reyes IS looking for work! Have Triple-A line-up day one week each month!

    I started spinning some ideas for 2013 Twins promos on Twitter today. Among my suggestions:

    Bring your kids out to the park on Sundays for a chance to pitch the 6th inning!

    10-year reunion of the '03 team that won a playoff game!

    First 10,000 fans get a discarded ulnar collateral ligament.

    Anybody else have ideas?

    - In honor of our 52nd year as the The Minnesota Twins, the club is proud to announce that if we are down by 5 by the 2nd inning, free beer the rest of the way.

    - We'd like to announce the first ever player/batboy position in history: Congratulations Drew Butera!

    - The club is proud to announce that the pine trees will be back as our starting center fielder.

    - The Team is officially going to be renamed the "Rochester Elite" squad.

    I kid because I love. Go Twins.
