FROM 12-11-07 at 4:49pm:

A brief note, the Twins have signed outfielder Craig Monroe.  They were planning on non-tendering him if they couldn’t get him to sign for ’08 at less than the $4.8MM he earned in ’07.

It’s hard to figure out where exactly Monroe fits in now that the Twins have Delmon Young.  He’s kind of too pricey to be a bench guy but there’s no clear starting role for him.
