Twins sign Adam Everett

Well just one day after he was non-tendered by the Houston Astro's, Adam Everett and the Twins reached a deal of one-year. (According to Ken Rosenthal)

It makes sense. The Twins have a huge hole at shortstop, and Everett is one of the better defensive shortstops in the majors. And the Twins definitely value defense at shortstop, and he isn't a great hitter. This has Twins deal written all over it.

He'll likely become our starting shortstop, which means that the Twins will likely put Brendan Harris at third base and Nick Punto at second (or visa versa). Of course, nothing is set in stone yet, but we all know how Ron Gardernhire is a sucker for above average defenders. No matter how bad their offense is.

We'll have to wait and see what happens.
