Say you have two teams with identical talent. One team hates losing. The other team could care less if they win or lose. I have no doubt in my mind the team that hates to lose will win more games....

I don't believe for a second Smith's plan included trading prospects. He got fired because he wanted to raise payroll.
When this young group gets to contender status and are serious World Series...

Because raising payroll is never an issue with the Twins?

I blame Ryan. Smith was his hand picked successor. Ryan bolted when the going got tough. Left a guy with zero experience to deal with the Hunter and Santana situations.
And I'll give Smith credit...
4/$56 would have bankrupt the franchise!
He was the starting SS for a World Series champion team. That counts for something in my book. Florimon is a disaster at the plate. Why continue the charade with this guy? The batting order is...
To the crowd who says "dont spend money, develop the young players". Who you gonna develop at SS? Santana is old. If he was gonna turn into something, he'd have shown signs by now. Polanco is two...
I dont know why its so hard for so many people to understand. With the new ballpark and the new TV contract, the Twins are raking in money hand over fist. They can spend it, even if they have to...
Spot on hit the nail right on the head. They hide behind "we're not gonna spend just to spend", then conveniently put it in their pockets. Guess what? This is minnesota. You have to overpay to...

If thats not an indictment on WAR, I dont know what is. And I say this respectfully, because I get vibes that saying anything bad about WAR is practically a ban-able offense.

This guy could be a bust of Hideki Irabu proportions. Garza for half the price makes far more sense.
The real question is does he still have that tire wrapped around his waste?

I look for Correia to have a strong 1st half and bring a decent return in a trade.

If they signed garza, arroyo, and pelfrey, I'll run down the street naked.

His throw to the plate in the 12th inning of 2004 game 2 ALDS. He caught the ball a few steps from the infield and Lecroy still had to cut it off! Oh the memories!
On a serious note. His 2005 8th...
Great post. I edited it down to my favorite parts. "25 guys who want to play". Reusse has made reference to this on numerous occasions. Gardy has to walk through the clubhouse to find out who's...
They are. I applaud them for ignoring framing statistics.
You dont trade prospects when youre rebuilding. You trade them when you consider yourselves a world series team and youre one piece away.
No thanks. His best years are prob already behind him. Spend the money elsewhere.
