Lesser talked about free agents: Who do you like?
So, the hometown club has gone out and signed Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes, and I am pleasantly surprised by the activity. While I don't love either player, I can hear the upside arguments for both and I think the dollars will be in line with the rest of the market when all free agents are signed.
I don't think another "major" pitching signing will happen, but rolling the dice here or there is still in play. Play along and assume the same; which one "take a chance on me" free agent pitcher would you want the Twins to roll the dice on?
For me, I have always liked Jeff Niemann. He has battled some shoulder issues recently, but maybe that means he could be had for a minor league deal.
