I was pointing out both sides have rational conclusions and rational reasons, but both were relying on poor arguments. There can be a difference of opinions in which case both sides make good points. I would say there are plenty of good arguments why it was a bad idea as well as plenty of good arguments why it won't hurt the Twins.

Leviathan, while it might not hurt the Twins, it still wasn't the best decision. I still am flabbergasted here. People will go on long posts about why Benson sucks and then say "he wouldn't have been the first player I would have removed from the 40-man" . . . .
THAT'S THE DAMN POINT!!!
