Heard last night that the Twins and Joe Crede are at an impasse. Sounds like the Twins are sticking to their guns and want Crede to lower his price.
I have asked a few players in recent days about adding Crede, and there seems to be a lot of support for the Buscher-Harris platoon. Buscher has crushed the ball in batting practice here. And many believe that third base is Harris’ best position – and a player who is more comfortable in the field might be more comfortable at the plate.
The Giants, who told one of their writers a couple day ago that they though Crede was headed to the Twins, are still monitoring the situation.
The Twins today are expected to make the Luis Ayala signing official. That means we’ll find out who is coming off the 40-man roster to make room for him.
Jim Souhan has arrived to take our coverage to the next level. And if you check our main page, I have submitted (with the help of photog Jerry Holt) the first of several video reports from Fort Myers. Check our website for more reports down the road – and I hope my face doesn’t make you sleep with the light on!
Denard Span and Delmon Young have reported. In fact, it looks like the whole team is here. That’s pretty impressive, considering the first full-squad workout isn’t until Saturday.
And, in case you were wondering, there won’t be an exhibition game against Concordia this year. Bummer.
