    I think you are looking at A C prospect like a pitcher in rookie or A ball that has high ceiling but lower floor. A risky prospect. The Twins don't...

    I think that guy might be on crack. Suzuki is hitting .300 for the season, doesn't strike out much and is a tough out. He equates his value to a...

    Maybe I think about this stuff the wrong way but I don't think knowing the Twins aren't going to be able to extend Suzuki reduces their leverage. ...

    I agree with you and after looking at several teams top 20 excluding the top 5, I don't see a ton of guys that are that much better than a lot of the...

    Not surprising at all. I would do the same thing if I were him. He has a chance to cash in on an All Star year with a weak FA class of catchers...

    Yeah I think it is political. There is no one to move from Cedar Rapids and they are waiting for Zack to come back as well. Unless they are ready to...

    Yeah he is talented and a team wouldn't have to give up prospects to get him. Tough thing is will he fit in clubhouse? Boston seems to be doing...

    I agree they poisoned the well. You don't offer the least possible amount you can to the player everyone thought was the best prospect in the draft...

    Yeah this becomes a brutal draft for them. Next year should be nice but wow. Why not offer 5.5 or 6 and sign the other two guys? They don't know...

    Any chance there would be a bidding war for Suzuki's services between the Dodgers and the Cardinals? They both have good defensive catchers but...

    Maybe not stated well. They typically won't overpay for talent or they don't compete for top tier talent with the Yankee's, Dodgers etc. Yes many...

    Sounds good to me. Grichuk sounds like he might be a bit like Kvasnika anyway. Like drjim, I am just looking at what the Cardinals might be willing...

    I like all the guys you mentioned but if I had to guess I think grichuk is more likely. He is rated as a B prospect in the 10 to 11 range in their...

    Why does everyone think he will settle for a one or two year extension? He is coming off an All Star year. His value has never been higher and the...

    I think if you can get a B level prospect for him you call that a successful deal. No one is going to give up the farm for a two month rental of a...
