08:12 AM ET 12.27 | After adding three starters in Minnesota, the Twins would appear to have wrapped up their offseason shopping. Not so fast. "I wouldn't say we're done," assistant General Manager Rob Antony said. "I wouldn't say were pushing hard. We have our feelers out there. If the situation is right, we could do something else. If not, we're O.K. too." Indications are that they are not going to hand out the two-year deal for $14-15 million that has become the rage this offseason (see Brandon McCarthy, Joe Blanton and Francisco Liriano). ... Same for Brett Myers and Shawn Marcum (there are health issues with Marcum too). But if the offseason continues and the those pitchers remain unsigned, the Twins will take a harder look at them if they lower their demands.

That's the reason why the Twinks are the worst team, no, possibly the worst Organization in the the AL.

There needs to be a change of ownership in Minnesota with their new stadium, the fans are coming out, and let some other group come in and be more competitive.

Really? Yet, a majority of teams and players envy how they operate. Okay, sure, worst team/organization.....
