This week the Twins announced their most significant addition of the offseason. They also signed Luis Ayala to "help" the bullpen. When I saw the headline, I thought (hoped) it referred to 49-year-old Bobby Ayala. The one nice part of a fresh face is that I don't have any painful memories like I do with Gas Can and Matches. For now, we'll have to be content with bringing in Larry DiVito as the new head groundskeeper. If he prepares the infield to reduce infield hits, maybe the Twins will find a few more real hitters.
