I just saw Colon to the Mets for 2 years and 20 million. Glad they got him! Twins now have a less option for Arroyo. I hope the Twins either go all in in Garza or get away with two years on Arroyo. I...
Touche, sir! I blanked with replying with my analysis. Thanks for catching it. Deduno is already in.
It just means the team is going to have to make some very interesting decisions going forward....
Reider, I'd disagree with you on the third SP. When you look at it, we have the following:
To fill those two question marks, we have:
Great replies and discussion so far!
Reading the replies makes me want to either assist or direct the debate further.
I don't have the exact posters (sorry ... just remembering what I read for...
No problem on changing the thread title. Whatever encourages discussion is fine by me! Thanks to everyone for very good replies. Hopefully the discussion can continue.
I didn't take into account...

My apologies if a thread like this was already discussed in the past. It was on my mind recently. Wanted to cover it.
In no way am I a decent baseball analyst, but I do hope to create a piece...
It looks like from either a bogus or misinformed Twitter account that the fake rumor of Hughes being close to the Twins on a 2 year deal was squashed today quickly. Darren Wolfson said it was much...
I make no qualms about it ... I want Hughes. I want him over Arroyo. The only pitcher over Hughes I want more is Garza, but getting Hughes cheaper (and he is younger) helps. If he wants two or three...

Spicoli, we didn't get Nolasco, huh?
Wonder what positvity can do once in a while. Hope you like that crow...
Those snowballs taste like chocolate malts! Keep em coming!
Today is a day to celebrate! Not only did the Twins not go dumpster diving for once, they went out and got someone who was coveted. They set a record today for spending on an external FA no matter...

Only reason I brought this up was becaue of the $5 million meaning they might take a less attractive package of prospects for Price.
If they ask for Buxton, Sano, or Meyer (any one of them,...

Stark reports an unknown wrinkle in the David Price trade saga. Price signed a one-year, $10.1125MM contract to avoid arbitration last January, but $5MM of that sum comes in the form of...

Linus, I agree. Which is why in my original post that I wrote if he doesn't sign two good pitchers with the market in his favor, all the optimism is out the window and he deserves the wrath he will...

So you're mad the Twins aren't active with a big name signing yet? Are you upset when Ryan says our newly acquired SP from the Pirates might start when he's 29 years old and has little no MLB...
Simply because I'm sick of the negativity, I'm going to add some positivity to this.
We had a good rule five pick last year (Pressley ... spelled correctly?) that stuck and appears will stick...
I was listening to the Friday Reusse and Mackey show on my iPod (I live in Milwaukee, so I listen the day after on my way to and from work ... same with Gleeman and the Geek too). They were talking...

It was a very good article! A nice breakdown of Nolasco.
It sounds like from what MLBTR said, we aren't as far as people thought we were here on Nolasco, but it is encouraging to see our name in...

We won't sign more than two and even that might be a stretch. We all know we'll be underwhelmed this year. I hope the key for the Twins is they sign pitchers that help.
We already know three spots...
I felt like re-visiting this thread today. Just read somewhere on a Mets blog that Saunders wants three years and is sitting on a few two year offers hoping a third will come (the blog also said...

And then may I add, gives Correia enhanced value for 2015 as 70charger said (which helps him get a new deal no matter his value since he had two years starting in the AL no matter how he does)......
12-22-2012, 02:35 PM
Taking a stab at my own questions here:
Correia was able to get a two year deal by being "durable" last year (Ryan did say Correia would have gotten 200 plus innings had he not been demoted to the...

I love this signing! Nearly no risk and great reward if Harden succeeds. I'm never against a minor league deal as long as this isn't the Twins only move (which it is not for SP ... even though the...
With the way the insane money was going for SP, I'm not surprised. I'd rather have Liriano over Correia even at more money Liriano was able to get. Liriano being left handed and the small promise of...
