Am I to believe that the Twins could baseline Baker and Marcum for a combined amount under $10 million for one year!? Let roll the damn incentives up to $20 million! If they perform great, $20 million would be worth it. If not,$10 or so is not killing the team for one year.

Marcum will not save the Twins, he is nottin more than what we got.
True. Marcum does have two arms, two legs, and is capable of throwing a baseball from a mound.
Past that, there aren't many similarities between him and the crap the Twins rolled out in the #2-5 spots in the rotation.

Seriously, don't the Twins have a half dozen Marcums in the organization already? There seems to be no need to commit years to a pitcher that doesn't represent a meaningful change for the future? It's better to commit to one excellent pitcher than two "decent" veterans.
It's clear that you have no idea how good marcum is. The Twins have ZERO pitchers as good as Marcum. the concern is that he'll be injured and not pitch at all.
