Odds and Ends

Other than a few minor things right after the end of the World Series, it has been a pretty slow off season so far. The Twins could face the most challenges ever this off season, and they may lose their centerfielder Torii Hunter. There is really no telling what the roster will look like next season, and it'll be interesting to see how the Twins go about filling the third base, centerfield, and designated hitter positions.

With big roster moves still a while off, here are some stories to keep you tuned into the Twins.

- With each passing day, the chances of Torii Hunter returning decrease. This past week, we even found out that Torii will meet with the GM from our rival, the Chicago White Sox.

- If Torii does leave via free agency, there is a little bit of good news. Since Torii is classified as a Type A free agent, the Twins would receive a first round pick from the club that signs him, along with a compensation pick between the first two rounds.

- Don't look for the Twins to sign Silva this off season. With the starting pitchers market small this year, word has it that he could get up to 10 million dollars per season.

- Finally, the new ballpark model was presented this week, and based off of the pictures, it looks very cool. Make sure to check it out, and if you're heading to TwinsFest this year, it'll be set up there as well.
