Apparently Kubel has been subconsciously compensating for his reconstructed knee by shifting his considerable weight to the other one. The Metrodome turf will not have helped any and he is now in real pain but I do not think this is going to be a career-long problem.
As for whether he has a shot to be big, for sure he does but it most likely won't be in 2006. He certainly could be the Twins second real power threat behind Morneau next year.
