Thanksgiving and a final coaching hire

It's not Thanksgiving on the blog without this turkey
of a photo.

The Twins on Wednesday wrapped up their revamp of the coaching staff with another hire out of the Tampa Bay organization.

Bill Evers has coached in the majors with the Cubs, Yankees and Rays, but none of it in the past decade. He's spent much of his career in professional baseball managing in the minors. According to his Wikipedia entry, he has a career record of 1,381-1,206, which means he has seen a heck of a lot of bush league baseball.

He will be, easily, the oldest member of the Twins coaching staff. His duties will include catching instruction. And presumably, being the voice of experience on a staff with a novice manager and a pitching coach who has never been in pro ball on any level in any role.
