I guess you forgot about Reyes, Wheeler, Percy, Salas. Also, Balfour was decent last season and Glover had some bright spots
Balfour is OK for 1/2 mill. He has some talent and could be a decent 6th or 7th inning type of person, especially if he can continue to recover from surgery. Balfour, who missed 2 years due to injury, did show the ability to K batters before his surgery and also the ability to dominate lefties. He was at one time the closer of the future for the Twins, so he definitely has some talent. Glover on the other hand, is really a nightmare as a reliever. He can't get righties or lefties out with any type of consistency. But again it was only a million bucks, and we surely wouldn't have been able to get anybody any good for $1 million, so hopefully one of the AAA boys step up and we can send Glover packing.
