    Non Roster Invitees

    Here is the list of guys the Twins have invited to major league camp this spring:

    I'm looking forward to seeing if Duda, Collins, Rosales and Anna have anything left, and I'm interested in seeing what Kirilloff and Lewis can do against better competition.

    well, I guess the answer on Anna is......no, he does not

    Can Gordon beat out Schoop as a starter?
    Is Sano's offseason conditioning a sign he makes a big turnaround?
    Did Buxton not returning in Sept motivate him or just sour him on the organization?
    Can Pineda still pitch?
    Who is our closer?
    More questions than answers.....
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    I don't think Gordon can beat Schoop out as the starter at 2B, at least not this year.
    Sano cut his heal and is in a walking boot for right now. That will slow his conditioning down quite a bit, I fear. He might start the season on the DL.
    Buxton, from all reports, came into camp with a chip on his shoulder. He wants to show the team they made a mistake by not calling him up in September.
    We'll all see about Pineda.
    For now, I think the closer will be May, but Romero could take the job from him. He has a great fastball and a very good slider. He would need a slower pitch like a change-up or curve to be a starter in the bigs. He could be a 2-pitch closer, though.

    I might DFA Granite. He is going to be passed by Badoo pretty soon anyway.
