He could take Ford's spot.

Ford's spot ? at 8 mil a year coming off a shoulder injury that has sidelined him for just about the entire season. Remember he was a catcher I don't believe he has ever even seen a ball in the outfield. Got enough catchers with yesterday's trade.

OVERRATED

Another hitter whose home runs come when they're ahead 10-2.

Piazza may be the type of player that will clear waivers. I would guess if the Twins really want him, there will still be a decent shot at him.

I'll take him as our DH any day of the week.

Bobby Kielty was also released. If he clears waiver he would become a free agent. He could do some DHing and play some in left field. Not that he has been much good since we let him go.

Im a braves fan, but still like the twins. They need to do something to get a power hitter for a DH or Third.

I've said this many times. The Twins won't use a designated hitter. When someone comes off the DL, he DH's. When Mauer doesn't catch, he DH's. They do this by design. Whenever they try to make a DH out of someone, (eg. Lecroy) and he gets enough at-bats in so he starts to get locked in, someone comes off the DL or someone takes a day off from the field but hits and the "DH" sits for several games. Nobody, and I mean nobody bumps David Ortiz, Travis Hafner, or Jim Thome.

New York teams aren't interested............... might be coming here. I would rather have Thomas- but maybe, just maybe we can squeeze one injury free season out of Piazza if he signs with the Twins
