I'm sorry, but I don't buy "the Twins are cheap" on this one.
I would have been thrilled for a year plus an option. And the Twins could have afforded it. Truth be told, I love the Cubs as a very distant 2nd choice team to follow and hope they did right by themselves. We all know the volitive nature of a RP. But we also know the value of a great one. We've had more than a few ourselves. What has always bothered me is why did it take so long for someone to sign him? And this includes the Cubs now, who's offer baffles me. Despite some possibly unrealist demands, NOBODY, including the Cubs initially, thought he was worth losing a lottery draft choice to sign until now??
N.Y., N.Y., Boston, Phillie, Atlanta, CHC, LA, NO big market was willing to sign him until the Cubs did now.
NOT wanting to re-hash old arguments. What happened, happened, and happened for a reason. But what this team needs is A] someone like May and Romero to step forward, B] make a trade for someone to stabilize and deepen the pen akin to the Pressly deal last year.
How about we trade depth to bring someone, or a couple someone's in, with the depth we have who can make a difference.
