    Twins Fans- What do you think of Everett?

    What's the vibe on the Twins getting Adam Everett (SS formerly at Houston)? I think he will vaccum up everthing that comes near him in the field................but I think another light-hitting middle infielder is the last thing they need. Already have Punto, Castilla, and company.

    Looks like another huuuuuuuuuuuuuge hole in the lineup if he's out there every day.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Twins Fans- What do you think of Everett?

    The Everett deal isn't TOO bad. I don't really like him but he is awesome on defense. He is another out when it comes time to hit though. He'll give Plouffe another year to develop or somebody they get back in the Santana trade. I wish they would have traded Hunter during the season last year as apposed to letting him walk. It looks like this is going to be another season where the Twins only have 4 actual MLB hitters in Morneau, Mauer, Cuddyer, and Young. If Kubel would step up and start hitting like he can that would be a huge help. This could be a long season though for us Twins fans. I think they will be an exciting team with all the youth around everywhere. Look out for the Twins in 2010 though!

    If the Twins start both Everett and Punto they will really be hurting for offense again. You dont need star hitters at second and short, but you need one of those guys to give you something offensively.

    Re: Twins Fans- What do you think of Everett?

    I was a little surprised by this signing as I figured Brendon Harris would probably be the starting SS. But now that I look at it, I guess Harris is more of a 2B/3B guy. So I'm guessing it'll probably be Harris at third, Everett at short and Casilla at second.

    I think Casilla is really going to have a good year this year and I think he'll develop into a great top-of-the-order weapon. Harris brings a track record of good offense from Tampa, so he should be able to contribute. I guess with those two, Everett fits in pretty well then. He won't do too much offensively, but will be a vacuum up the middle.

    If the Twins end up getting Jacoby from the sox (and hopefully Bucholz along with him) for Santana, I think this coming season can be a very exciting one for the Twins.

    It seems a lot of people think the Twins are just throwing in the towel for now and building for 2010, but I don't think that's the case. Bill Smith is retooling the team for success for the present and the future. I for one was extremely excited about the trade for Delmon Young. With him, Morneau and Mauer the Twins have 3 of the top 10 or so young sluggers in the league!

    Everett is the kind of guy you put in in the bottom of the ninth on the road w/ a lead.

    Re: Twins Fans- What do you think of Everett?

    Everett is a decent pick up. With a young pitching staff, it will help to have a strong defense up the middle. I'd sure like to see them do something to get a real 3rd baseman with some pop in his bat for the 1st time in years. The proposed trades for Johan didn't appear to address this need. Maybe they could get a 3rd team involved in a package deal.

    Harris is not an every day player for any team that intends to contend.

    what makes you say that? he was an upgrade over bartlett -- better offensive numbers and a year younger.

    Re: Twins Fans- What do you think of Everett?

    Very good money for a guy who can't hit. Not what the Twins needed. They need a center fielder and a third baseman. I hope they are still coming in a trade with Boston.

    You're right, the Twins need to address their 3B and CF holes, but they also had a void at SS with the Bartlett trade. The Everett signing takes care of that.

    Re: Twins Fans- What do you think of Everett?

    He doesn't have the bat to play third and doesn't have the D to be an everyday SS. Last year was his first full year in the bigs and he played three positions. I think he can be a great utility guy with the ability to play 7 positions, but if you have aspirations for a championship then he isn't an everyday player...

    Re: Twins Fans- What do you think of Everett?

    I do like the fact that this is only a 1 year commitment.

    It seems a little too similar to the Jaun Castro pick-up a few years ago. Hopefully not the same result of jettisoning him mid-season and going with the youth movement (Castro to Bartlet, Everett to Harris)?

    Re: Twins Fans- What do you think of Everett?

    THE TWINS JUST SIGNED A THIRD BASEMAN!!!! No more whole at 3rd. The Twins just signed Mike Lamb to a 2 year deal with an option for a 3rd! Isn't this great? It's great to see the Twins spending some money and going after some big name free agents!


    note: this is full of sarcasim and I really do hope this deal works out. I do have my doubts though.
