Again, we reiterate that TwinsCentric and Twins Daily are in no way associated with the Twins and can not actually give you that kind of power

1) Kangaroo court Joe Mauer for every first-pitch strike he takes. Not because it makes him a bad hitter, it's because we have enough table setters, and he's the one on this team who can best adjust his game. (I may have said this already somewhere.)
2) Get Liriano drunk, laid, hypnotized, whatever it takes to get his mind completely on something else, and see if that helps hit the catcher's mitt.
3) Bring up Darin Mastroianni. He's my adoptee, I am legally required to advocate this.

Because you are such a big Twins fan, your first wish is to become the GM AND Manager of the Minnesota Twins for one day. Voila!
I initially thought this was a typo because I thought, Yes! absolutely right, vintage Frank Viola would absolutely be my first wish.

Oh, and release Capps too. He will not pitch MLB beyond 2013.
Put Slama on the 40-man and bring him up.
Why release Capps? He's got "Saves". Somebody out there will be dumb enough to give us a prospect because he's a "closer".

[#1] Give Joe Maurer, Danny Valencia, and Clete Thomas their unconditional release. (when someone, somewhere picks up and renegotiates Joe's contract to market value, use the $23M next year to sign 2 free agent starters to 3-4yr $10M deals. Call up Brian Dozier, Drew Butera, and Joe Benson.
If the Twins release mauer (which they wouldn't), they would still pay him the $23M for the next 7 years. So there woudln't be some additional money.
