If they could trade for Cole, sign Otani and sign Darvish in the 25-30 mil range.....one can only dream.

 

Honestly, 2 of the 3 would be nice with one being Otani. I'd rather use the rest to get RP help.

I'm glad to see they are exploring the trade routes as well.RP help would be good as well.

I said this in another thread, but it's more appropriate here.

What about going to Mauer and offering a 2/22 extension, but then smoothing out the next three years to 15/15/15 instead of 23/11/11?

This would provide some flexibility to the team for 2018 and maybe allow the Twins to add one more important piece (if they are working with an internal "hard cap")

Also, can we pay Hughes $1 per year for the next 13,000,000 years?

No athlete in any sports negotiates a guaranteed contract downwards. Mauer is not going to sign an 11 million a year contract. That would acknowledge that his skills are gone.

Well... he's not getting 23, so based on that logic I guess he's retiring.
