The Minnesota Twins are happy with the way OF Josh Willingham's season turned out despite injuries that sapped him in the final week. "He's had a career year," general manager Terry Ryan said. "We were desperate for a right-handed bat to put between those two lefties (Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau). When it was apparent that Michael (Cuddyer) maybe was not coming back we started to turn our attention to other right-handed bats, and Josh was at the top of the list."
