I (finally) notice that the Twins are bringing back Matt Guerrier.. possibly. Matty’s 35 years old and coming back from an arm injury, so I suppose it should have been assumed that the Twins would sign him to a minor league deal. He’s our cuppa tea. Plus we all loved Matty when he was here earlier, before he was wooed away by the Dodgers.
Matty’s spent his off-season rehabbing his elbow. Doesn’t sound like much fun. But he’s throwing the ball and it’s coming along and I look for him to be with the Twins at the season’s start. Because I, like the Twins, am a sentimental optimist. And when Matty comes in to shut them down in game 7 of the 2014 World Series, you’ll see that we were right.
