Twins sign Yohan! (Not Johan)

I remember at the time of the trade just being upset that the Twins would give up someone like Pino for Pavano... It's part of the reason that things don't bother me anymore, I think.
Completely agree, Seth. I had the same reaction (I believe I read about it on Seth Speaks not positive though). I was quickly ok with the move and, over time, forgot who we gave up for him. After Correia, I don't really get to worked up over FA signings. I will voice my opinion of if I agree or not but I will no longer swear off the team because of a move that they make.

Last year he put up a nice 1.35 ERA and nearly 9k/9 in his time as a relief pitcher, also his starting numbers weren't terrible either.
Potentially could become a nice cheap bullpen option for us, and a potential spot starter as well (Could be a cheaper Swarzak down the road)
