Lombo: The Sequel

The Twins, torn between buying and selling at the trade deadline, opting to be neither, making no trades. The rumored Denard Span-for-Drew-Storen deal with Washington never came to pass, which I guess is a good thing; the team has too many outfielders and more on the way, but I don't know that getting rid of Span is the ideal way to relieve it.

But I was surprised to discover that one of the Washington players the Twins wanted back is a young infielder named Stephen Lombardozzi, who is of course the son of the 1987 Twins second baseman of the same name. I don't know much about the younger Lombo, but if the idea is to live in the past, I don't see why he's the ideal guy. Why not sign Kirby Puckett, Jr.?
