    I understand not being a fan of the Pelfrey contract but Pelfrey is blocking no one. There is still one rotation spot up for grabs and sooner rather than later, a second will open up from injury.

    Kubel did seem pretty confident he will make the roster, but I wouldn't count on it unless there actually was some kind of secret handshake.

    The deal he signed just gave the Twins 2 million reasons to send him to Rochester for the first couple weeks of the season.

    Disagree. Pressly may have had experience in the outfield as a high schooler, but he has concentrated on pitching for too long by now.

    Turner would be a nice get, I would also try to get DeRosa out of retirement to provide UTIL and a bench bat.
    We probably need another team to convince DeRosa to come back. Then we can trade Duensing for him.
