Where's Joe Crede?
The Twins need to seriously consider another go around with Joe Crede given their offensive inconsistancy. I have no idea if Crede's healthy or interested but it's an option worth exploring. Supposedly Crede's off again-on again availability was considered by the Twins to be a liability but what do they have now? Morneau, Mauer, Hudson, and twice Punto has been unavailable for multiple games. Considering Harris is wasting a roster spot with his inexplicable two year deal he signed last winter it probably wont happen. Valencia seems to have slow hands and lacks quickness at the plate and I seriously doubt his major league contribution potential certainly in the short term. Obviously we haven't seen much of him so my take may be premature but we'll see. He certainly deserves the chance given his track record, age and the Twins 3rd base production.
