    Hypocritical indeed, as would it be to start a thread to tell everyone how it appears TR is not going to do anything this offseason, then popping over into a new thread and laying out a two year plan involving multiple moves that would be the biggest in Twins history. Oh man, I did that.

    The Royals won't trade Bonofacio. They love him in KC. They talk about it a lot on the radio (I live here).

    Is anyone expecting some kind of bounce back from Vance Worley?

    That I can understand.

    It's possible... It's happened before. But yeah... I'm not counting on it.

    We need Worley, Diamond, Denuno, or Johnson to fill the 5th spot. It's not too much to expect Diamond or Worley will bounce back and/or Denuno will be healthly. IIRC the first 3 are out of options which is why Johnson with his 3 is a smart move.

    I think it is entirely possible. I believe even probable. Not only for Worley but for Diamond as well. Worley changed cities as well as leagues and battled some injuries. As did Diamond, rehabbing from an elbow that was bothering him, if I remember correctly.

    In my lineup/roster plans I have them both on the outside looking in, in favore or Correia, 2 FA signings as well as Gibson stronger and learning and Deduno building on what he has done when healthy. (There is the injury re-had bugaboo again)

    Neither Worley nor Diamond are world beaters. But either, or both, have the potential and track record to show they can be serviceable, solid starters. And that is the key to me; if healthy again, mind refreshed with a new healthy season and proof you've done it before, you can do it again

    If his weight/conditioning is what's holding him down, it's not insane to hope for a bounce back, since one off-season of hard work (plus diligence after that) would be the main ingredient needed. More than 'hope', less than 'expect', I guess. Maybe Worley's feeble 2013 results will be the wakeup call to him that I choose to believe Swarzak's horseplay and broken rib was that led to the best season of his career.

    Worley wasn't a bad pitcher when we acquired him. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the rotation at all. We have a lot of iffy pitching options and I feel like at least one of those guys is going to step up and be in the rotation.

    Agreed, I think he will definitely have every chance to win a spot as either the 4/5.
