I read that the Dodgers are looking to trade/give away Nicky Punto. I want to say his contract is $1.5M. How about 2B or backup at 3RD?

$5 million - no
At that price - yes

On the condition that if he reaches 350 PA, Gardy donates his entire salary to charity.

Just a question...not trying to nitpick...but he became a FA for a bit if time before being re-signed in the offseason before 2009 season. So wouldn't this technically be part 3?

Just curious, there is already a thread on this. Why not comment there?

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :) Also, I am NOT trying to convince anyone I am correct, I'm just talking here, not arguing.

The Twins need to find the next Nick Punto. We don't need the old one.

Couple more of these and there will be a thread in honor of every position Punto can play.

We got Carrol that's enough.
