Twins sign Tony Batista.
I know this happened a while ago, but I just began thinking about it. Why did this guy opt to go to Japan last season?
Good power (32 HRs in 2004), decent speed (14 SBs in 2004), Ok fielder (35 errors). He was a good player.
How did he slip pass the A's, too? He is an Ex-Athletic they should of see nthat this guy would have been a great DH for the A's. He hits well against both right handed and left handed pitchers. Also is good right handed pop and wiould make a decent backup for Chavez if need be.
He was perfect I can't believe Beane let the Twins get him.
