From Twins.mlb.com this week, we get this little nugget from Josh Willingham.
“I do love playing in Minnesota,” Willingham said. “From the organization, to the weather, to my friends and teammates, I think all that stuff is a plus to me. So yeah, I’d love to stay here another year or so.”
This is awkward. The Twins now have Oswaldo Arcia, Byron Buxton Aaron Hicks and Alex Presley in the fold for the near future. Willingham’s proclivity for injury, movable contract and .218 average don’t really scream “long term investment”. I’m not so sure I like Willingham’s chances of getting his extension, to be honest with you.
He seems like a great dude though.
