Mike Piazza's list of 2006 destinations isn't necessarily confined to cities where a Pacific sunset is part of the welcome package. Minnesota is considering him as a cleanup option, and to this point, Piazza hasn't crossed the Twin Cities off his list.

"Mike hasn't ranked teams in any special order yet," said agent Dan Lozano. "But the Twins are one of the teams that's interested, and Mike has definitely said he would go to Minnesota."
