    I know. It's so frustrating, this parsimony we have here in this organization. A mere $160 million and we could have had him...:D

    I hope this isn't being intentionally argumentative. Yes, there is more work to be done, and I think that has been recognized by all, including the Twins. But I guess I just don't see how this year's...

    Yeah, in the MiLB portion they don't have to remain on the AAA or AA active roster - they can just be stashed for the full year on the AAA or AA reserve roster (similar to the MLB 40-man roster) and...
