Jon Heyman is reporting that the Twins are signing Joe Crede. The problem? This was reported at 4pm this afternoon. Two hours later, ESPN hasn’t reported it. The Twins site hasn’t mentioned it. None of the local papers or news agencies have discussed it. So what the heck is going on?
That being said, I am fully in favor of the addition of a right handed bat and a guy that will play the left side of the infield, especially one that has been a great hitter as recently as 2 years ago. It would be no surprise if Crede decided to sign quickly as the Indians today designated Andy Marte, a guy the Twins have been after before. Also, this would mean that the beard will finally be gone.
