Rumors circulated Tuesday that the Twins are also in the market for another catcher now that Joe Mauer has moved to first base, and cbssports.com reported that former Twin A.J. Pierzynski has been approached, most likely about a one-year contract. Ryan wouldn’t comment directly on those reports, but said he’s not inclined to add a catcher in a “mentor” role to split time with rookie Josmil Pinto.

I used to like Ryan....but he has lost touch with reality. Still appears he will be squeezing those nickels.

"Ryan not inclined" should have stopped the headline right there

While I agree with TR, his words "But that doesn't come cheaply". speak volumes.

Ryan will add Butera. Gardy had it written in his new contract that Butera had to be brought back.
