Hmmm. I though he should have been the Twins #1 target this past offseason. I’m glad nobody listens to me when it comes to baseball decisions.

My top targets were Jeurys Familia, David Robertson and Joakim Soria.

There were a lot of wrong answers this winter.

Cody Allen might be a target at some point, assuming his sudden downturn is due to injury. Twins might call him up next spring to see if he has recovered, then give him a tryout, which, if successful could generate a minor league deal. Some of these pitchers with diminished heaters might be revived by some coaching from Wes Johnson. See: Pitching staff, Minnesota Twins.

I wonder if the Twins will have any interest in kicking the tires with Allen on a minor league deal right now.I see they just signed Ian Krol to one.Falvey should be well aware of Allen, so I guess we'll see.
