    jharaldson got a reaction from Mike Sixel in New Approach on Signing Yu Darvish   
    I agree the idea could be repurposed.  A 4 year/$140 million contract with $60 million being a signing bonus using the BAMTech money might get him to agree to a reduced term from the 5-7 years he is likely looking for.  I wouldn't be opposed to Falvine putting both options on the table.

    While I don't think Smith did that great of a job the one thing I do respect him for is actually doing the job.  When some of the toughest decisions in recent Twins history were coming due (Torii Hunter Free Agent, Johan Santana Trade, Joe Mauer Contract) Terry Ryan quit and went home.  Bill Smith stepped forward and actually had the guts to make these decisions, right or wrong.  When the tough calls were made and it was back to prospect development Terry Ryan rushes back in and takes over pushing Smith to the side.  Smith is remembered for his many failures while Terry Ryan gets almost no heat at all for ducking those big issues.
