According to mlbtr.com, the Twins have signed Joe Crede...
Mark Gonzales of The Chicago Tribune cites "a major league source" who says that Crede and the Twins have agreed to terms. No details of the contract were available.
I assume this is on a 1 year deal and I like it for the Twins. I'm from MN and get to see these guys play a lot, and while I hate the term, "second favorite team", growing up here thats what I would have to call them. If he can play a whole season, he could provide a much needed bat in between Mauer and Morneau and also help that infield regain the defensive prowess it once had. Go Twins!!!...unless they are playing the Cubs.
BTW, does not bother me that he was a southsider in any way.
