    Adam Everett

    I was reading about Twins new shortstop Adam Everett, who we got from Houston. The 2008 Baseball Prospectus - which usually doesn't hand out praise easily - writes that his defensive skills are second to none. Everett was injured for about 3 months last year, but I think that the Twins might have gotten a steal at short. Everett is not a great hitter, evidently, but his awesome defensive skills will really help our rotation this year.

    Yeah Everett is a great great great fielder.
    He had something like the second best statistical season of a SS ever a couple years ago.
    Some even compare his defense to the great Ozzie Smith.
    His big problem is his horrible bat though, we're talking Nick Punto stuff.
    Although he seems to be a hard worker, and has been putting in alot of extra work this offseason and now spring training on his hitting.
    I'm happy to have him patroling SS considering he's not worse offensively than guys like Punto but is a defensive machine.

    Coming from someone that used to watch almost all his games, he absolutely cannot hit.
    But you're getting one of the best defensive shortstops of all time.
    A shortstop is a defensive position, period.
    And for the price we got him for, it's a not a bad deal.
    I love lamp.

    one of the best defensive players in the game..best case scenario, he hits at least .250, worst case scenario, he hits .220, which is still better than punto either way
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    With Everett batting ninth I don't think the lineup will be too bad.
    Health permitting we're going to be a much better hitting team this year.
