Thanks for the contract info.
It seems like a no brainer to offer a top prospect a long term deal to buy out arbitration years. It isn't always so team friendly. On the other hand, risking 4 and...
Pretty simple from my point of view
Arcia for Herrmann
Willingham for Colabello
Fuld for Santana

None of this would be necessary if the Twins hadn't painted themselves into a corner regarding their center field situation.
Hicks should have been sent to AAA weeks ago with instructions about...
Hicks cracked pretty much every top 100 prospect list through his MiLB career, peaking as high as the low 20s on some lists.
Santana? Zero top 100 lists.
Hicks has out-performed Santana at...
The key for the Twins, though, is how good is the class for guys that want no more than 4 years, and less than $60MM......having elite SP available doesn't really help them.

I do. IMO the way to build a watchable major league team is to accumulate major league players. Trying to build a major league team by constantly getting rid of major league players in favor of...
A few years ago me and my buddies were walking along at the State Fair, and we came across the Giant Yellow Slide -- a towering three level structure that is a central fixture at the...
Span has a fWAR of 3.6 and 3.5 the past two years.
The Nationals wanted to win now. Span did his part to help that happen, though the rest of the the team didn't live up to their potential.

Those things are not to be taken seriously and are heavily influenced by previous seasons' record.
Here are BP's projections for the AL Central in 2011.
Guess which team their projections had...
Based on that logic, what player isn't an injury risk?
Injury history? - The guy can't stay healthy
No injury history? - The guy is due for an injury
It's gotta be Punto or Butera. Those are the only players that would make Gardy say "wow".

Nope. You're looking at several years of a 3-4 win player for 40 times the price of Sano's pre-arb seasons.
If you want Cole Hamels, go sign Matt Garza. Not quite as good but you get to keep...
Fair enough. I don't think we're really disagreeing here. My only sticking point is timing.
If the 2014 Twins win 85 games, then it's time to start exploring trade options and prospect trades. At...
You forgot Kyle Gibson... I would not have picked Gibson but some might!
I like Gardner, and he'd be an upgrade and a nice leadoff hitter, but he's a just one year upgrade. He's a free agent in 2015. Trading anything of value for one year for Brett Gardner, just to help...

Hughes 3/25>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>arroyo on ANY 2 or 3 year deal.
