Awesome - Joe is a class individual and a great pitcher. Him AND Liriano AND Boof for AJ? Really?

At the beginning of the AJ trade it looked as if Boof may become a great pitcher too. Imagine if he had. Anyways my prediction is Nathan returns to his allstar form maybe even better then before and we try to deal Capps before the trade deadline

Hey, Please have someone check the article, "Morneau Making Progress, But Still Not Cleared For Games." Each time I click on the link, I get an endless circle of flashing pages. Techies need to take a look. Thanks

Who would have thought that Joe would be back in a game before Justin. I would have bet the farm it would have been just the oppisite. Way to go Joe and please ease back into it. The closer role is waiting for you. To Justin, you have taken this long to make sure everything is alright up there and I'd rather have a bad elbow the rest of my life than sitting in a chair later on in life drooling into my lap. You have a lot more to lose so take your time. Go Twins!!
