    Not to nitpick...but what Thrylos said was not that they "are working in a totally different contract." I'm sure that's probably true.

    Thrylos' claim is that the "Twins re-signed Baker." Done deal. Totally different claim.

    We shall see.

    Declining the option was implied, I think. Did anyone seriously believe the Twins were going to guarantee Baker $9m in 2013?

    Agreed. I was under the assumption that the original post was a about a decline and re-sign....which it still appears to be the case (awaiting the resign)

    Given that Baker himself said "we are not close," it seems pretty unlikely. I do suspect they will eventually get him signed, though.

    Still waiting for an anouncement...I have another story I am going to break right now.

    "Zack Greinke has been signed by the Twins. Six Years 125 million. The news will break after Friday morning, according to my sources."

    If you were trying to mock Thyrloss at least propose a contract the Twins would offer.

    "The Twins have traded Oswaldo Arcia, Aaron Hicks, Miguel Sano, Kyle Gibson, and a player to be named later (Byron Buxton), for Alex Rodriquez." According to my sources the deal is pending a physical by A-Rod. Welcome to the Twins A-Rod.

    I heard that we also had to throw in Joe and eat $50 million of his remaining salary, in addition to the players listed above. Must have been a different source.

    I assume you mean "Baby Gots Downs".

    The creation of that forum was one of my more enlightened decisions.

    Why do you believe those two things are separate?

    Why has this post managed to stay on this site. It was a joke when posted and should've been deleted at that point.
