I think this has very little to do with Willingham (unless he stinks) and has everything to do with Hicks. If Hicks shows himself to have a future in our OF, then our OF and DH get too crowded in...
First guy to bid, gets him, right? :p
This 100% eliminates us from...
Perfect 3 year stopgap to Trea Turner

Is that a real quote? Not only a slam on a relatively unimportant major league player, but a slam on MN.
You almost never see quotes like that.
Bonnes nailed it with this list: Ryan Eades, Melotakis, Madison Boer, Niko Goodrum, Billy Bullock
You can't let guys like those prevent you from signing players that you want/need
I think many of us would like to think that the Twins' time in the bottom 10 will be fairly short-lived. As such, if we were ever going to sign a compensatory pick player NOW is the time. What better...

Plus there is much less need for an interview.
It's not like I have a ERA+, K/9in, and hours of video of me doing my job
Pffft.... that's a state beef
I'm sure there is some reason why this wouldn't be allowed, but couldn't a player's contract pay him a significant amount of money for Spring Training participation (FL and AZ both don't have state...
3/50 for Garza
As was mentioned above, about that time our youthful pitching depth is starting to mature.
Also worth mentioning is that 3 years from now Garza will (hopefully) be looking for...
The JJ comp is a decent one. JJ a little slower, but a little better glove?
I literally did a forum search for "Stephen Drew" and "Drew," before starting this thread, and came back with nothing...
There's been a decent amount of talk about us not really having a great SS option at the moment, but I've never heard anyone talk about Stephen Drew.
He's had some injury issues the last couple...

Part of me wonders if Mauer will go down as one of the last all-around great catchers. Unbelievable offense (for a catcher) as well as really good on defense.
As concussions become more and more...

I think most people aren't looking at this quite right...
Of course it's not a positive for the team. One of the best hitting catchers ever, moving to a position where his talents aren't a ton...

No Q.O. for Hughes (I think that's a mistake)
New York Yankees extend qualifying offers to Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, Hiroki Kuroda - ESPN New York
According to my Cardinals friends, they have a bunch of money coming off the books this offseason.
Like $120M down to $70M committed in 2014
He's Back - HR: Buxton (2, 1st inning off Hutchison, 0 on, 1 out)

Circling back on 2006...
Because of the glut of money being tossed around in 2006, the following 2 years had relatively few signings more than $10,000,000 (total contract).
I'm certainly not...

Jackson didn't have draft pick compensation tied to him, right?
Regardless... Agree to disagree.
I think we are going to be doubled over with laughter a lot this offseason (See: Lincecum, Tim)

Given the parallels with 2006 (new TV contract = GMs spending tons of money) i would be shocked to see Hughes get anything less than 4/50.
If I was going to go on record with a guess.... 4/54 with...
Thanks for the more complete list.
I'm curious why "TOR Ryan 5/47 (2006)" didn't show up on my original list. Oh well.
The most interesting thing out of this exercise, for me, ended up being...
My final list only included players that switched teams.
And yes, Ben Sheets was the player that exceeded the $7M per year for Willingham
I'm not totally sure what their criteria was because some were included and others were not
Answer to the 2006 TV contract question: Yes. A new lucrative contract was signed that year ( Fox, TBS have seven-year, $3 billion TV deal with MLB - MLB - ESPN )
Someone warn Terry Ryan
