Well, inevitably the Twins lost Jacque Jones. I'm feeling a little depressed that the outfield trio is breaking up, but it's time Jones moved on. So, farewell Jacque, best of luck.
On a brighter note, 3 other Twins have been offered arbitration Lohse, Punto, and Cuddyer. I hope that Lohse settles in and has a more consistent year this time around, but I think he's a good asset to the team.
I'm also excited about the addition of Rondell White to the team. I'm hoping he'll improve the Twins offense. We'll have to see!
Some times trades are needed regardless of stats and performance. J.C. Romero was traded for Alexi Casilla, seemingly more for personal reasons than anything else.
Trading is always a stressful time, but I try not to worry myself with their decisions, staying out of it is better... I still like to peek from time to time. We'll see what kind of team we get for the next season. I have a feeling it's going to be more mixed around than years past, but only time will tell.
