TFD: Eddie Guardado spending Thanksgiving with Torii Hunter, trying to recruit him to the Twins

We had a good chat with former Twins pitcher and new bullpen coach Eddie Guardado today on a number of subjects for a future Page 2 story, but one nugget stood out as relevant for both amusement and news: Guardado is spending Thanksgiving in Texas with old teammates LaTroy Hawkins and Torii Hunter. Guardado and Hawkins have remained close for years, and both are clearly still pals with Hunter. The interesting thing, of course, is that the Twins are said to be in pursuit of Hunter in free agency.

All Ex-Twins Team, 2014

Welcome back to one of our (almost) annual posts. Try not to let the fact that the ex-Twins team is better than the real Twins team get you down. Outfielders. So, so many outfielders. But the real hard part? Nixing A.J. Pierzynski. For the first time since I've started putting these teams together, I couldn't in good conscience give him a roster spot.
