1)Do you see the twins doing anything to improve the offense - which as it stands now has alot of "maybes" and "what ifs" in the current lineup with some of the projections more wishful thinking then any type of possibility. With the idea that Buxton and Sano probably won't be impacted players until atleast 2016. Along ways off.. What if any moves do you see the twins who set a record for strikeouts last season and I think where 25th in runs scored actually making to improve the offense. 25th is pretty bad. Hmmm, Terrible starting pitcher and 25th in runs scored...no wonder the twins won 66 games last season :)

2) What is the biggest difference in Vance Worley we saw last season vs his good year in philly besides good and bad. Is it velocity dropped, location was way off, his pitches lost their bite, AL/NL, Health etc...Pitchers just don't fall off the map like that.

3)Who (if anyone) would either of you take in the rule 5 draft?

4)Where do you think the payroll will end up at it seems pretty clear that Terry Ryan isn't done yet... Well, atleast I hope not - we still have the winter meetings.

What reclamation project would you go after? Halladay, Johan, Daniel Hudson? What is the latest on the Korean pitcher Yoon?

Two Rule 5 guys we should be looking at : Tommy Kahnle with the Yankees - hard throwing RHP and Seth Rosin - Ex Gopher who throws gas and is with the Phillies. He was the Gophers stud when they won the Big 10 and would fit well here.

MLBrumors say the Padres are willing to Part with Wisler and Smith SP,
what do you think of these 2 , and what would it take to pick up 1 or both of them

Just saw that we drafted Rosin out of high school but he went to the U instead of signing then. Front office must know him well

I would love to see Johan back in the TC. I think for the right price he would be a great addition

Twins need to take care of their draft picks....All they are doing is bandaiding and to sign 3 and 4 year deals seems like a lot....Gibson, Meyer, Wimmers (major league ready), logan, etc. get a program to get them healthy....All proven winners....
