I saw on Yahoo today that now the Yanks have passed the luxury mark, that they were going to make a run at Drew.
And no mention of the Twins having interest with the Mets, Jays and A's.

Cruz could be an interesting play if you can get him on a one year "prove it" deal.

Any idea on how Cruz will hit without the Biogenesis stuff? That, the draft pick and the message the Twins will send signing a PED user, makes me think that it is not happening. On the other hand, even though his arm is not good any more, he will be a better LF than Willingham. RF not much so.

Yes, I've noticed Young's decline in the field and he's capable of some occasionally poor at-bats. But as long as he still wants to play I'd take him over Plouffe seven games a week.
Also he might bring a 162-game mentality to the clubhouse, which arguably is what the Twins have been lacking the most.

I don't think Gardy would say "wow" over a fourth SP. I agree that this sounds like Drew. Or maybe Garza. But a hitter seems more likely to generate that reaction. IMO.
