The Minnesota Twins have been looking into the possibility of signing an extra outfielder – they’ve talked to Scott Podsednik and Ryan Sweeney – while they’ve also talked about adding a utility infielder such as Brent Lillibridge or Yuniesky Betancourt, reports Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN. The Twins have had brief talks with free agent outfielder Ryan Sweeney's representative. The same goes with free agent outfielder Scott Podsednik's representative.  The Twins have had talks about signing free agent utility man Brent Lillibridge, but the best bet is that he signs with a different team. The same goes for free agent infielder Yuniesky Betancourt. Minnesota is in the market for an outfielder since they traded Denard Span and Ben Revere to the Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies earlier this offseason. The Twins could also add a utility infielder before the winter is through, but Wolfson notes that it’s likely Lillibridge and Betancourt wind up signing elsewhere.

A Tardy Farewell to the Anti-Deceiver

At the end of last May, Phil Dumatrait announced his retirement from professional baseball. It was an announcement that went largely unnoticed — note the three retweets — and that makes sense, because Dumatrait hadn’t pitched in 2012, and for his career he threw just 151 major-league innings over parts of four seasons. Many of them were not good innings, and while there are...
