Replacing the all-star Torii Hunter with the 22-year-old Carlos Gomez in centerfield, and journeyman Livan Hernandez filling in for Cy Young winner Johan Santana as the opening-day starter doesn’t exactly pique my Twins interest this season.

That said, I did like the three-year contract given to closer Joe Nathan on Monday. It still means he could be moved come the trading deadline, but at least they showed a flicker of wanting to compete at a high level — albeit the 2010 season.

The bleak state of Minnesota sports has put my fandom in atrophy.
