On the Beat: Mid-Week Update

The Twins brace for life potentially without Joe Nathan, the Blue Jays beef up their scouting staff, and more.

Perhaps no franchise had more momentum heading into spring training than the Twins. Seemingly everything was going into the right direction for the franchise. The Twins were coming off an inspiring run to the American League Central title last season, their fifth in eight years, overcoming a seven-game deficit in the final month and a three-game disadvantage with just four games to play to finally chase down the Tigers in a classic one-game playoff. Furthermore, the Twins had made significant progress in their attempts to keep catcher/batting champion/MVP/franchise player/hometown hero Joe Mauer from testing free agency at the end of this season as they seemed near a contract extension. The Twins were also gearing up to move into Target Field in April, which will bring outdoor baseball back to the Twin Cities for the first time since Metropolitan Stadium closed after the 1981 season, giving way to the Metrodome.

Changing gears in Boston, the new-look Nats, building from the ashes in Toronto, plus news from around the majors.

Following the trend of so many other teams in the past few years, are building their club with an emphasis on pitching and defense. That is certainly a different tact for the Red Sox, who made the playoffs in three consecutive seasons and six of the last seven with some of the best hitting teams in the major leagues. The Red Sox were third in the majors in runs scored, with an average of 5.4 a game last season as they won 95 regular-season games before being swept by the Angels in the American League Division Series.
