    Might make sense to trade with Cinncinatti, as they would benefit from Detroit and Cleveland and we would pick up Minwaukee and St. Louis(which would be a better draw than Kansas City).

    If it's Jeter's 3,000th hit, I sell the ball. If it's Mauer's....I may keep it or return it. Depends on what you think of the player who hit the ball. I think that if you return a ball though, you should decline any compensation from the athlete. The PR boost for them helps, but I think it's more honorable. People get credited as 'doing the right thing' by giving it back when they really are getting something back (even if hardly anything value wise).

    I like that second list, that shows just how out of left field that amount of money is. (It would be even better if De La Rosa, who picked up his own option year, wasn't on the list.) The more one looks at this, the more it becomes so puzzling that it almost defies any kind of analysis. This does a nice job of objectively quantifying that.

    Beckmt, I think that would be classy for the Twins to offer Morneau a 3 year $30 million extension, but I am not sure if it would be worth it. I look at Doumit's offensive production (similar to Morneau's), but Doumit plays a more valuable defenisve position and makes less. I think the conversation will be difficult, but I think a fair extension for Morneau would be more like $6 per year (at his current production rate).

    Morneau stated that he wants to remain a Twin. Now is the time to see if he will take a club friendly extension in the 9 - 10 mil a year range. Otherwise next year could be difficult, if he has a great year it will cost more money, if he is terrible, you will not have to pay him after next year, but more likely he will be slightly above what he has done this year, leading to the range quoted above.

    I think there are good miles left in the M&M boys. Build a solid foundation on guys who have pride in being Twins.

    I hope that "contract extention" means trading him before the deadline for prospects and putting Parmalee into the 1B/DH position full time. I hope Morneau has a monster first half so his value is as high as it can possibly be and he is fun to watch hit.

    If they can manage to stay in front of the Rays, who are making the wild card/division race a three-team race at this point, I think we do see more of LEWWWWWWWEWEWEW.
