    Samardzija is pitching tomorrow afternoon too. So Cubs are putting their best foot forward so to speak. And the Cardinals are starting Jake Westbrook (#5 starter)...maybe they pull the starters too. Would be ideal.

    Just hope the Twins don't pull "a Vikings" and win the last game of the year...when it's so timely.

    The Braves own the head to head tiebreaker, so if the two teams finish tied, Atlanta would have home field advantage in the playoff...so Cardinals will still be playing to win.

    Welp, even though we lost, 5th it is. Lost around $800,000 in salary slot value though.

    Wish the Twins had a FA they could 'lose' this offseason by a team outside the top 10 picks as to gain an extra 1st RD pick.

    You mean, after we make the guy a qualifying offer of about 14M?
    Just remember: You put the lime IN the coconut. Only THEN, can you drink it all up.

    That is twice the amount of the "huge" salary Ryan gave to Willingham.

    Edit: Mods, what are the consequences for accidentally double posting? I assume it is a severe penalty but I'm willing to suffer the consequences for my mistake.

    Oh well. 1-9 down the stretch. The boys did all the could do to get that 4th pick. I hope all the top prospects stay healthy and productive. There are at least five players I'd be excited to add if the draft was today.

    Can't wait to get into the full swing of things: speculation, pining for players - the weeks leading up to the draft are great.

    A lot of people were fine with the #4 pick last year till experts started to say there was a value cut off after the first 3 picks (Appel, Gray, and Bryant). Also, look how much money the Rookies signed Gray under slot for. They were able to use that money a lot of other places. Even if rumors were true that the Twins had Stewart higher than most they might have had extra money to go after local boy Logan.

    In the end they will get a top talent no matter what.
