DateQuestionAnswer
2011-12-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)I don't think Chris Herrmann made your Twins' top 20, and I'm aware that there's a strong incentive for a Twins fan to pretend there's catching depth in the organization whether that's true or not. But he had a kind of nice 2011 that continued into the AFL. How likely is he to find his way onto the Twins roster in the next couple seasons and maybe do something useful as a bench player?
(Minneapolitan from Nashville)
Definitely could happen with that realistic ceiling. (Kevin Goldstein)
