Cuddyer still likes Coors Field and Kubel likes Chase Field (I think those are the current names) even better. Neither is tearing it up on the road.

Got JO Berrios, Luke Bard & JT Chargois.....wouldnt say they got nothing. Saying one of those is worth 10-12 game difference if pretty funny. If they woulda kept one of those, then Ben Revere doesnt play....& then we have the worst defensive corner OF in majors. Great decision to let 2 overrated/whiny players go & start rebuilding.

And likely don't sign Willingham/Doumit (one, the other, or both) if they kept them.
also time to start changing the culture/attitude here.
Couldnt stand hearing those 2 bitch/moan about not being able to hit in Target Field. Man up. Other dont have a problem there.
Plouffe .633 home slugging
Mauer .444 vs .406 in 10-.350 in 11

Remember how TRyan was NOT sold on Revere...wonder where he stands now. That cost us signing Komatsu/Thomas....tho Bens time in AAA with Bruno turned his swing around (thanks Joe Vavra). Dont know how many people forget Ryan Doumit was our opening day RF. It took forever for TRyan/Gardy to get an idea of what this everyday lineup should be....for the most part (not perfect by any means). Gardy had Kubel/Cuddy hangover also.

No doubt Willy & Doumit were good signs, wasn't much for free agent SP out there, Buehrle, Wilson, Jackson, Kuroda was about it.
Hard to see where pitchers with the following lines would benefit the Twins:
3.25 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 4.13 k/bb
2.43 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, 7.1 k/9
3.73 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 2.53 k/bb
3.50 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 2.59 k/bb
2.62 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 8.0 k/9
4.05 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 3.41 k/bb
3.51 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, 7.0 k/9
3.69 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, 6.9 k/9
3.44 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 2.52 k/bb
