I disagree 100%. Both Willingham and Correia are in the final year of free-agent contracts. Almost certainly,they won't be part of the 2015 Twins. Saving 15 to 25% of their respective salaries is real money, but more to the point, 2015 alternatives can be auditioned for 30 to 50 games.

Correia is 99.99 gone for 2015, but Willingham, not nearly as much.I believe that Willingham will be offered a "team-friendly", one year contract.I estimate a cut of at least 50%.

Wed Aug 6. Joe Mauer in Cedar Rapids No hits with one strikeout in 3 at bats.

I guarantee you Mauer will hit. Mark my words - by the end of the week he will be promoted to New Britain.

And skip high A? Not a chance.

Has this turned into a trade Joe Mauer thread? Ugh.


MLB Trade Rumors has reported some players clearing waivers, but no Twins yet. I'm sure Correia will and possibly Willingham. And if someone claims them, we should work out a trade with that team anywaysgive them away and run in the opposite direction.





I see what you did there.

Have you been waiting for the right moment for your first StrikeThrough? Well-played sir.

Indeed I have.
