    Nope. Time for the Twins to embrace the youth movement. What the Correia disaster of a signing accomplished is that at most 2 from Gibson/Hendriks/Meyer/May/Wimmers/Hermson/Whateverprospect group will be in the Twins rotation in 2013 and 2014. You don't want to make that number half of that.

    At what point do the owners say 'these salaries are out of control, enough is enough' and a strike happens?

    As if the owners aren't raking in the dough as well?

    Well, the last time the owners did that they were sued for collusion and lost. And, if you don't want to play in the market, then you should sell your team, because this is the price, Mr. Owner....

    I would rather pay a lot more to get someone younger, like Sanchez. The next two years are likely to be rebuilding years, and Sanchez will likely still be good when the Twins are ready to compete.

    Exactly right.
