    I hope we don't see both Gordon/Rodon go 3/4.
    Then we get a real good hitting RF.

    I'm not so sure the Sox will, $6 mil is only a little over their slot value, I'd think they'd work out a deal

    Aside from the last-few-days smoke screens and faux drama, this is going more or less how it was projected over the past week.

    Hey, at this point, one of Gordon and Jackson will be available. I'm still on the Nick Gordon bandwagon.

    So it looks like Twins will get to choose between Jackson and Gordon - I bet they take Gordon

    That would be ...unexpected.

    Still doesn't change the likelihood of Gordon, I would think, as the top 3 arms are off the board.

    Not really. He could slid if he got past the White Sox. Cubs are talking about saving some money and I'm not sure the Twins would have sacrificed extra money/picks for an overslot deal.

    I think the Twins will have their choice of Gordon and Jackson. And they will take Gordon. I would take Jackson.
