LaVelle E. Neal reports that the Twins actually offered Kevin Maitan more than the Angels did.Given the number of SS prospects already in the Twins system, Maitan chose to sign with the Angels.LaVelle also reports that the Twins are pursuing another, unnamed former Braves prospect.

 

 

And they are not done. I've been told that they like their chances to of signing one of the former Braves players who were declared free agents recently. Not as highly regarded as Maitan, but someone they like. So stay tuned.

Thanks for sharing. While I think Maitan is a bit overrated right now, it would have been a good get.

Is there a word for being disappointed, reassured and understanding at the same time? The French probably have something for that.

 

Just good to know that the Twins only fault in this matter was having too many good SS prospects. It's pretty much been confirmed that the Twins chased hard for Maitan and Ohtani, it's hard to believe their interest in Darvish then too isn't legit. Let's not swing through strike three, knock this next one out of the park.

Darvish is hardly strike 3. We're still in the early innings.

It's official. We received more for board scapegoat John Ryan Murphy, than we did for board favorites Pinto, Arcia, and Vargas combined.

I kind of wish the Twins would have kept out of the Ohtani situation altogether, while so many others were pushing hard, and let Darvish know their primary focus was HIM!

Merdre will suffice for the French word for Maitain's signing elsewhere.. Salo for Ohtani after he was said to have wanted a smaller marker. "J'espere " still for Darvish

Advanced Probability and Aggregate Theory...a plethora of posters who strive belong to the Lexicomane Society...more legal jargon than I ever hoped to hear and now I have to learn French just to follow along???

 

Thanks TD for helping me towards a Masters Degree...in what I'm not sure ;)

I took French in high school, and know that this is the word for "shirt".

 

Not that I want to encourage this tangent....hint hint

Why waste time learning, when ignorance is instantaneous?

Shirt without an R? You did not thinksomething like that when an obtainable. potentially decent mlb player signs elsewhere for less money?

I figured if we're throwing around extra 'R's, I'd join the fun.

I plead guilty, but in fairness the thread was perhaps made irrelevant when the Twins did in fact sign an interesting player, as speculated.

Speculation with imagination are the hallmarks of a great thread
