So we are under the assumption that the Twins are signing no one else that will make the team out of spring training? That's unfortunate.

I guess I was just listing the players that are here now. I am hoping we sign another player or two.

A few years ago we had Joe Mauer and Wilson Ramos at catcher.. This year there is a good chance we will start with Kurt Suzuki and Eric Fryer.

This. Except I would not lose Diamond or Worley at this point - if Deduno comes back healthy somebody is getting a mysterious ailment until we need another pitcher. My other hope is that Escobar gets a shot at SS. While its not likely, I think there is still some potential with the bat there.

I also would start Sano at AAA.
