    I just took a look at the offensive stats for this year's Minnesota Twins.

    Offensive just about covers it. Only two regulars with an OPS above .680. 2, and one of them is Juan Castro.

    Another week or two of this and they just might see RA and a minor league pitcher as an upgrade. This offense is the baseball equivelant of the La Brea Tar Pits.

    Something happened between 2004 & 2005. I don't know what, but something. They could finish behind the Tigers with this offense.

    According to MLB Trade Rumors,

    All sorts of emails about the Reds recently. Everyone thinks they're due for a trade, and I can't disagree. Unfortunately I've come up empty on any inside rumblings of a deal. But take a look at this depth chart! The team has three catchers and five middle infielders, but lacks a real first baseman and could use some relief help. Something's gotta give. The Jays could probably spare a corner type, and the Twins could have some use for a middle infielder who can hit. The Mets might not mind another second base option.

    700 (caveats inherent here) said they believe Kearns, a pitcher, and a second baseman will be gone before the end of next week for a starter and a reliever.

    They are trying to trade Kata.. But Krivsky said that was about it in the DDN
    What's up, Wayne?

    With the jam-up in the infield that includes four second basemen and a roster that soon will include three catchers, it figures general manager Wayne Krivsky is hot on the trail of trade.

    "Not really, nothing much going on," he said. "We're trying to do something with Matt Kata since we've designated him for assignment. We'd like to do something good for him in a trade that is almost something good for us."

    Yes, Kata was a second baseman, too.
