    Return of Johan?

    The Twins have asked Johan's agents about his medical records. He will likely have a lot of suitors, but I'm glad to see the team make this inquiry.

    it'd be fun to have him back...if he really still has anything left

    thing is....none of his friends when he was in Minny are still there, with Torii, Justin, and Cuddy all gone

    I'm still here... Won't that be enough for Johan?

    I wonder if he's accept a "split deal" with one salary if he makes the big league club and one if he doesn't? It would be interesting to see what he has left in the tank.

    Man - a Johan in 2014 could go any which way. Any persons guess is as good as the next. Who the heck knows.

    or would he accept a highly incentivized deal with escalators along the way

    Problem is, if I'm Johan, I'm looking to sign with a team in contention THIS year, not next....and you know there's going to be one willing to overpay for the chance at having the Johan of a few years ago in their rotation

    Johan's comeback is over for the season. He tore his Achilles Tendon and will need surgery.

    we get a 'return' of sorts....only it's a different 'Johan'....Yohan Pino starts on Thursday

    hadn't realized we sent him to the Indians for Pavano 5 years ago and got him back

    Pino has been on fire for the Red Wings recently.

    I'm more excited for Pino than I would be for Johan Santana.
