You did see that Danny Santana is DHing today?
And doing a darn fine job. I'll just say a nice goodbye to Kubel; I always liked the kid but he would be the right choice.

Hello Morales, May, Fuld.
Goodbye Kubel, Correia, Hicks.
Now if they can find a reliever to replace Burton.

Kubel and Parm are gone with the return of Fuld and the signing of Morales. There is no way he is going to be DH only, either. Some back up for Mauer and protection, after rearranging things, for any injuries to Willingham and/or Arcia. I certainly would like to see either Santana learn some LF or Hicks LF or RF. Neither one is ultimately the CF of the future, but I would like both in the lineup most of the time. The Twins now would have Willingham-Hicks-Arcia-Santana-Morales-Fuld-Mauer-Pinto for LF, CF, RF, DH, 1B (with Pinto getting increased C time and Santana getting some SS/2B time). Theoretically, Fuld-Santana-Hicks is possible in the OF late in games.
The bench just got significantly better.

If they are trying to win this year, Santana and Hicks offer more than Kubel and Parmelee.

I think there is more economic pressure to keep b*tts in the seats than may have been apparent earlier.
The ASG "bump" such as it was will be gone. While I'd prefer to see prospects, I think there is probably pressure from the top to keep it interesting as long as possible.

There aren't going to be huge crowds for an 80 win team. The Twins need to contend to get their attendance back up. Right now they are hurting themselves, not helping.
