|He looks angry...hopefully there will be happy times inside the Dome Ruben Sierra, who became a free agent this year after two and a half seasons in New York, will be seeing the Yankees from the other side of the field in 2006. The Minnesota Twins signed Ruben to a minor league contract in hopes that his switch hitting skills will be just what the doctor ordered to fill out their 2006 bench. Ruben was held back last season by both hamstring and bicep injuries and hit just .229 in 170 at bats, but has a lot of power to offer from both sides of the plate. With Rueben healed and healthy the Twins can expect to see solid pinch hitting numbers and likely at least 10 home runs.
"I wanted to stay in the American League and I always liked this organization. From what I've heard from all the players, manager Ron Gardenhire is super and the fans are great there too. This team has a good nucleus and a good chance to win and make the playoffs. Once you make the playoffs, you never know what can happen." - - - Ruben Sierra
