There have not been many bright spots in this, the most depressing season in Twins history.  One has to be the play of Luke Hughes.  The Australian import has been one of the top hitting prospects in the Twins system for the last five years or so, but was always billed as a man without a position.  Playing more than anyone could have expected, he has been adequate defensively at first, second, and third base.  He has showcased some nice right-handed pop, too.  There's no reason why he shouldn't be a fixture on the roster as a utility guy (at the very least) for the next few years.
