What does this mean? Even less hitting. A higher percentage of Castro's outs come from strikouts, and he makes more outs. No gained plate discipline, somewhat worse.

With Guzman to Castro, you go from a very poor homerun hitter to a horrendous homerun hitter. Guzman's HR/H% was an embarrasing 5% but Castro's percentage is a non-MLB caliber 2.7% (Justin Morneau is at 25%).

Supposedly Castro is a sound defensive player, but Christian Guzman was also (at the very least) a sound shortstop. The only substantial positive change is the price, which could've been used to keep Corey Koskie but wasn't. Lets see how the Twins use the saved money.

What does this mean? Some less strikouts, some more productive outs, which has underrated value especially because the Twins are a very run-manufacturing team. Improved but still poor plate discipline, a staple of the Twins offense (Not a good thing).

Fewer homeruns. Corey's homerun stretches during the regular season helped lift the team through some rough times. Cuddyer is still a decent homerun hitter compared to the rest of the lineup, but not a consistent threat like Corey was.

What does this mean? If Mauer can stay healthy this year we should see him give the offense a considerable boost. He is a great power threat, and doesn't make a lot of outs. His 2004 Slugging Percentage was an astounding .570, and his TB/Hits percentage is 1.85 (almost a double for every hit).

If not, than Mike Redmond is a much less attractive offensive alternative. He hits for little to no power or much of anything for that matter. This is supposed to be okay because he has a good fielding percentage, which isn't something I am quick to buy into.
