    Brad Radke was absolutely one of the best pitchers of his relatively short time (obviously not on the Maddux/Johnson/Clemens/Martinez level, but those guys are usually once-a-generation). So...

    Haha, I give up. I'm just going to repeat my request from the message to Jim above: please find me examples of teams that lost around 100 games two years in a row, then spent a bunch of money, and it...

    Nick, all fair points, except I don't think the alternative is any better. As I think I demonstrated pretty well above, it's going to take a miracle to contend in 2013. The likely effect of an active...

    Wait, what? They didn't destroy anything, or at least not for financial reasons. They traded Hardy, stupidly, but it was because they didn't like him, not because he was expensive. They brought Thome...

    False. That's exactly the problem with trying to rebuild through free agency -- by definition, you're overpaying. If you land a free agent, you're paying more than all 29 other teams are willing to...

    Oh gee, would you? Thanks. This stuff is so hard for me.

    You made the point in response to me pointing out (and see it in more detail in response to Jim above) that payroll really doesn't matter...

    Really, you want to spend Yankees money? I'm not sure you could do that in one year and field a playoff team (Matt Kory tried on Baseball Prospectus a week or two ago and it was so-so), but I was...

    Brainwashing, Jim? Please. I have nothing against the current front office, but I can't say I've ever seriously listened to anything they've said publicly.

    It's just good baseball sense. Can you...

    No, they couldn't. That kind of thinking is how decent teams become the late-1990s Orioles and Dodgers. There's a time when opening up the checkbook makes good sense (the Tigers now, the Twins three...

    Yep, that's since been added, and that's really all it took. Now it's great. :)

    I have to agree to some extent with the "out of context" thing. From this post, Bowden seems to be stating as fact that "The Twins will be looking to trade Justin Morneau, perhaps in the near...

    I'd love to see an explanatory comment from whoever voted for Blackburn...

    I went Baker, but I think Liriano is a defensible answer.

    Why I have hope for the Twins in 2012

    I hope this isn't an abuse of this forum -- I stand to gain very little, and only indirectly, from more pageviews on this -- but I thought people might be interested in my (free) article over at...
