If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

Ryan is a joke!
For those who keep ripping Ryan for every minor league signing he makes, please stop. It's getting quite old and it shows you don't know anything about what happens in MLB, during the winter. Every team in baseball is signing numerous players like Clete Thomas. Every team needs organizational depth and fillers. GMs don't pretend that these guys are going to make a difference in the organization, because it's widely understood what their roles are. It's nothing to get worked up about and Ryan is not failing the organization or the fans by signing them. Every GM is doing it. They have to. Just follow the signings on this site and you'll see Ryan is doing the same thing as every other GM. Fantasy Baseball player news, injuries and analysis - Rotoworld.com

Signings like this will keep Arcia/Hicks in AA rather than ROC....this is what upsets me. Signing these retreads for AA is one thing, but blocking players who will be starting at seasons end is frustrating
You really believe that Clete Thomas is going to factor into how the Twins decide to handle Arica or Hicks?

You're never going to convince anyone with asinine hyperbole like this.
Ryan hasn't done one thing to improve the team

This signing actually gives us more flexibility in the system. People tend to forget that we do need to field teams at all our minor league affiliates. Having "roster fillers" like Thomas means we can put Hicks in the best spot for him and for the organization without having to worry that we'll leave Rochester without a center fielder.
My understanding of a minor league contract means we can stick clete in AA too, if that's where we need him so we can move our prospects up

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Then again, the Twins are probably building for 2014-2015, and very few GM's are going to overtly say "We're going to suck this year, but stick with us, eventually, we'll be .500 again." I'm on record saying I like the moves TR made this year (DISCLAIMER: K.CORR didn't happen, we're all in a shared dream).

Jason Vorhees might also be available.
