Tuesday was the one week mark from when Twins pitchers and catchers report. And while I'm not super enthused about that -- I won't start a countdown or anything -- it's still pretty cool to think about this being where the season starts.
I just don't think of it as something that pulls me from this no baseball funk. These guys have been playing catch all winter long. This is just more organized.
But nevertheless, there's plenty of intrigue surrounding this bunch of Twins. We've seen the inexplicable, as the club dealt both its big league centerfield options -- no slight to Darin Mastroianni -- while holding tight to the guys everyone thought might actually be on the block (Justin Morneau/Josh Willingham). The team added pitching, but did little to pacify fans qualms for pitchers they had heard of.
Whatever that means.
