Man, I had forgotten all about Mike Olt. He was a hot-shot prospect for the Rangers all those years ago, got traded to the Cubs, and never amounted to anything. Worth a shot on a minor league deal, but like most others who have commented, I wouldn't expect miracles at this point.

Yup, nice depth if they deem Brian Schales not quite ready for AAA.

And just to show that I'm not crazy in my thinking, here's the recent signings.

 

I include the Cruz signing not because I don't think it was a good move, just because of his Rangers' history.

 

MLB - Nelson Cruz, obviously a former Ranger during the Levine years

 

Minors:

 

- Dario Alvarez, Texas during Levine years

- Tomas Telis, Texas during Levine years

- Olt, Texas during Levine years

- Anthony Vizcaya, Cleveland during Falvey years

- Preston Guilmet, Cleveland during Falvey years

 

Then there was Gimenez, Rucinski, the interest in Napoli.

 

It's just too many to not make jokes.

A glance at the Rochester roster showed over 50 players added by the Twins from other organizations the last 2 years . This team isreally Texas-Cleveland castoff haven.

Fifty? Wow!

I have no idea, but that seems like a lot. I'd have guessed maybe thirty.

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.
