    Agree - I was simply saying it could be Nick Blackburn like in that he's given an extension needlessly with no or very limited upside for the deal. The biggest take-away from the Blackburn deal was...

    5 yr 40 mil seems insanely high. 2015 will still be pre-arb, so that's 600k or so. The first arb year will only be 2-3mil range? So then you're giving him what 8,12 & 15 mil those last 3 years? That...

    The risk is with Gardy. You give him the option of starting a veteran over a rookie or 2nd year guy (Arcia) and he's going to take the veteran nearly every time. Give him a veteran he's familiar...

    I think Samardzija will end up costing more in prospects than people realize right now. The Cubs have zero need to trade him as they still control him for 2 more years. He is their only high upside...

    The Twins should have been following the Cubs 'shortcuts' the last 2 years. Both clubs started from nearly the same place - the Cubs brought in Epstein in Oct '11, the Twins brought back Ryan in Nov...

    I highly disagree. I don't think voters ever consider the salary of a player when voting for HOF. And since salaries continue to rise, 5 years after Mauer has retired, 23 mil per year will seem like...

    I believe the Twins know they aren't close with their pitching rotation and lack of any pitching in the upper minors, so they are starting the re-build now, but they aren't telling anyone that and...

    Who are the first to go from this list? With the need for 3-4 rotation fillers, some will have to be cut from this list. Here are the 4 I would cut in order:
    Caleb Thielbar
    Josh Roenicke
    Tim Wood...
  9. Agree

    Then do something about it, Twins.

    Bin-diving and settling for the middle road will only keep them in the middle of the pack.

    Commit to winning. OR make it a youth movement.

    It's resulted in...

    I would like to see Bake back next year. He actually has some upside and would sign for a reasonable 1 year deal, perhaps with an option or two.

    Assuming they sign him, I'd like to see the Twins...

    I seem to be in the minority, but I am fine with Florimon at short. I think either Span or Revere is going to be moved this offseason, so that will open a spot for another power guy in RF so the...
  12. Offseason handbook?

    Offseason Handbook? That sounds interesting. Where might I get one of those? I've heard nothing about it and I haven't seen any annoying banner ads all over Twins Daily.

    I agree. The overall number doesn't really matter as much as fans like to think, it's what is done with the money. Going all out right now and adding an additional 50 mil to payroll would likely mean...
  14. Mike Redmond

    I assume you mean Mike Redmond, who is part of the Blue Jays organization.[/QUOTE]

    Yeah, he was highly regarded with the Twins, if I remember correctly. And now has a couple years of experience,...

    Has anyone heard anything about Redman being an option for the Twins staff?

    Your logic "If you think your squad has a chance, then you need a closer, not a pen of questions" is solid, but the choice of Capps was obviously incorrect. The Twins could have had a similar bullpen...

    If it were only that easy to sign quailty SP's.

    Grienke will get a minimum of 10 mill per season, probably more like 12-13 per..or higher.

    I'm not sure what Sanchez will command, but it will...

    Here is what I would do to make a serious run:
    Trade Morneau for a prospect (unload his entire salary, so you won't likely get an MLB-ready SP back, but something of quality for the long-term, saves...

    I am also sick of the following 2 sentiments:
    1. The Twins are a 'Small Market' team. They are in the top half in payroll even after slashing 15 million and the Twin Cities is NOT in the bottom 5-10...

    Bullpen & Bench

    I think they should go with 11 pitchers. The guys they have fighting for those last bullpen spots are all of the 2 inning variety anyway. And without Zumaya, you don't have that 1 IP every 3 days guy...
