The answer to the Twins infield issues: TC Bear (Really, watch this)

I'm looking for glimmers of hope during spring training, and didn't see anything during the parts of Tuesday night's 11-3 loss to Tampa Bay that I tried to watch. I kept turning away, to be honest, and you can find the sordid details of Vance Worley's performance and more elsewhere on the web.

This pretty much sums up spring for me:

But in an attempt to find something hopeful, I offer you this, from the Twitpic account of @CorkGaines:

We know the Bear can hit, as witnessed during the Saturday afternoon home-run hitting contests at Target Field.

But the defense? Who knew?

Maybe Trevor Plouffe should be worried?
