Doumit was a decent signing....kind of an iron man in a way....always ready to play, and it doesn't matter where......good fit for this team, along with a little leadership qualities...

Agree that this was a great signing. Rare that the Twins will pick up a utility guy that can field and hit.

I really enjoy watching him play...especially trying to run a ball down in left field! Just kidding. Spring is here...bring on Baseball!!

Well stanbob, he was a great signing...is he a world beater, everyday guy? no, but thats not why he was signed. Compare him to others around the league (basically utility guys who can play multiple positions) and you will find that the twins did indeed make a great decision in signing him.

I think Doumit may have even better offensive numbers this year because 1) He's had a year to adapt to the AL, and he's more familiar with the pitchers; 2) Doumit should be seeing less outfield and catching duty with a healthy, revitalized Joe Mauer, and more DHing-which is why he signed with us in the first place; 3) Morneau appears poised to have a hellacious season-Doumit will get good pitches to hit, with runners on base, as the opposition pitches around Morneau. The key will be keeping Doumit healthy. Last year, Doumit stayed mostly healthy-and that's a big step to take going forward. Go Twins!
