    IDK, I see more upside potential with both of them and I'm guessing they would both cost less. Would rather the Twins sign one of them and then bring in a 10-15 million a year guy

    I remember. I know you and I were prime targets for the slings and arrows from the apologists.

    It looks like my prediction of $85M might have been a bit of an overshoot. One could say that one apparent intent from these maneuvers at payroll paring is that TR is setting Gardy up for his early dismissal papers.

    If it works out as well as Tewksbury we should all be thrilled. I think I'd rather have Tewskbury. The 2012 version.

    Why not just save the money or sign a different crappy pitcher to a 1 year deal so atleast its a 1 year deal.

    Poll would you rather have DeVries or Correia in the rotation?

    This is how I look at it:

    Terry Ryan is a ranger at a dog park. One of his job requirements is to pick up dog feces. The thing is, instead of throwing the feces into the garbage, Terry Ryan takes them home and makes models out of them. Kevin Correia is one of these models and he is entering him into a State Fair competition. The problem is this - the competition is a cake baking event. I cannot see how this can end well. Yuck.

    As long as you're reaching for your own popsicle for gratification there, you should probably link to your "100%" guarantee that they would sign nobody for more than one year. Right?

    Does Ryan seriously not understand pitching or what the hell? Why even bother making a move if it's for a guy like Correia. Christ, he makes Blanton and Saunders look like steals.

    I don't have a big problem with dumpster diving, but pay dumpster like prices, not solid #3 starter price and give a 2 year contract.

    I think you would be thrown out of court by any random judge for using an invalid defense of the indefensible.

    absolutely am stunned by that!!!! This means that Diamond/Worley/Correia/Gibson are 80% of 2014s starting rotation. is Terry thinking he can flip these guys this summer/next offseason.....wow!!!
    Funny thing is I had a list of 50 FA pitchers & picked 3 from the bottom 5/10 but I truly believed they would do it.
    Ryan is old school & isnt a 21st century stats guy....so he's excited by a guy with double digit wins for 4 straight yrs.

    Get those playoff tickets early people! We've got our ace! Oh wait, Kevin Correia? Sorry, I thought TR said he was after a "pretty darn good pitcher". Carry on folks. Nothing to see here.

    What "solid 3" is getting only $5M in free agency at this point?

    like i predicted, next up kevin slowey and the return of the man called stach ...
    why does ryan not get it? why can he not understand the difference between an asset and a reject?
    we havew better options in hermsen,deuno devries walters and blackTURD
    guess ryan needed to remove payroll to qualify for his bonus for slashing payroll again

    Embarrassing, if there was one guy I could hate as much as Blackie it's Kevin f***ing Correia!! Damn TR, you're killing me!

    Not out of the realm of possiblity that ROC could have a more successful starting staff than MN this yr
    Diamond....not sold on him
    Worley......coming off bone chips, some think its a precursor to TJ surgery
    Correia....nuff said
    Hendriks....personally think he will break out huge this yr
    Duensing......will move to pen with another pitcher acquired

    AAA
    Gibson....best starter with MLB stuff
    Blackburn...many will defend him still due to 08/09
    DeVries.....2nd best starter in 11'
    Deduno....3rd best starter in 11'
    Walters.....

    I wish I had a Torch, Pitchfork and Noose store. I could make some cash with this crowd... TR and Kevin may need a strong Sheriff to hold you guys back or someone like Scout in "To Kill a Mockingbird".

    He wouldn't have been my first choice and I still have sticker shock but I've seen him pitch a few times and he's got a tough side to him. I remember thinking that he reminded me of Pavano... 2009/2010 Pavano that is.

    I remember Correia blanking the Twins this summer for 4 or 5 innings... Terry may remember that blanking as well... I think he out dueled Diamond that game but I could be wrong.

    Put the pitchforks down. It's gonna be alright. However... I do admit... That Baker signing with Chicago... Looks amazing right now.

    I am going to hope that Ryan knows what he is doing on this one. If not, then he should be held accountable if Correia flops.

    This should be every bit as successful as last winter's pitching additions. Nicely done TR. Now let's strike while the iron is hot and get Livan signed before the other GMs find out he's still available!

    That's the best use of $5 million they could come up with? Why not just light it on fire instead?
