Just like... "we... us..." regular citizens go thru when we a buy a car. You can second guess yourself for awhile. Did I get the right one??? Did I pay too much??? If I waited longer could I have gotten a better deal???
I don't think the kind of buyers remorse that I am referring to... Is what you or the OP means buy "regrets" or "regrets already".
"Having regrets already" in the context presented is kinda trashy.
Regrets or not, those are not words to fire up the fanbase with excitement.....
You think he regrets it now wait until midway through the season and he has a 5+ era
Terry would be matter of fact straight forward as he told you about winning the lottery or the birth of his children.
If you want to rev up your fan base... I don't know if the Twins have that guy. TC Bear or the Fox North Girls maybe.
I suppose will hear the new talking point of the Twins he's an innings eater. How about a quality pitcher? Is that to much to ask for?
It's the Twins' way.
Oddly enough, this gives me a bit of faith in JR. He knows Correia isn't a very good pitcher but had to sign somebody because the Twins need pitchers and lots of 'em. At least we know that Ryan doesn't have unreasonable expectations for Correia in that he's going to be some kind of savior in the rotation.
Which hopefully means that he's still pursuing one of the better pitchers left on the market.
It seems more and more likely to me that Correia IS the big FA splash.
i hope I'm wrong. But I'm never wrong. Once I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken.
Today's article in the Strib more accurately, I think, sums up what TR is going for:
"The Twins, said Terry Ryan, "need competition. We need numbers and we need choices.""
So if he can't get quality, he's going for quantity -- and hoping that someone will rise above mediocrity.

But you can't sign Kevin freakin' Correia, keep guys like Willingham/Morneau, and then say "good enough". You either go get a Jackson/Marcum/Dempster-type pitcher to complement Correia or you liquidate whatever assets you have to get pitching. While I'm patient with the front office, I'm not a fan of half-assing it in hopes of things just "working out". Choose a legitimate course of action and move toward it. I don't care what course of action that may be, just pick something.
I think this signing speaks volumes of what TR thinks of the pitchers (outside of Diamond) who started for the Twins last year. This is a large group that will move up and down between Minnesota and Rochester. Get those frequent flyer miles.
