    -Revere to Phillies has been a long time in the works.
    -"Desperate for pitching"
    -Meyer is your prototypical front of the rotation type guy.
    -May has great stuff
    -Worley "we can at least put him right in the rotation at least that gives us him and Diamond, we still have a lot of work to do though
    - We have three more CF we can plug in, offensively is the question.
    - Still very active in pitching FA market. Mentioned they still like Hendriks, and hopefully Blackburn can bounce back.
    - We aren't playing for 2015, we need to get going, we are going to try to compete in 2013.
    -Thinks the bullpen is good enough as long as the SP doesn't let em down.
    -"We need to find starters"
    -"if would have to be a significant return if we trade Morneau"
    -"We have been trying to sign pitching early this off-season!! Sometimes you can't give your money away"

    He also seemed to indicate he's more interested in adding to the ML roster than subtracting.

    I'm not even half-working. I'm on the second to last day of a contract over here and my day has consisted of sitting around, waiting for the client to send me revisions. They haven't sent me even one email today.

    I did five minutes of work this morning. I've been here for going on eight hours now.

    Thanks guys!
    I still have faith in Hendriks,
    Ryan needs to get out of town with his Blackburn stuff,
    he was quiet about the Revere and Phillies stuff, it was kind of shocking to see the trade.

    You realize that he is, though, right? And given that, you're saying...what now? That you prefer if he is unsuccessful in the future because you think he's been unsuccessful? Or...Yeah, still not getting it.

    I will raise my Hand and say that I without a doubt hope that Blackburn Bounces Back. I won't bet the house on Blackburn bouncing back...

    But I really really hope that he bounces back and I personally believe that Terry Ryan also hopes that Blackburn bounces back and I think Terry Ryan is also not betting the house on Blackburn bouncing back.

    I think it's part of the reason why he want to acquire more arms and mentioned a bunch of times during the segment that he needs arms.

    I also think that "Blackburn Bouncing Back" would make a great title for a song.

    I'd honestly prefer he plays so bad that they can't even consider calling him up to pitch for the Twins again. I'm sure that sounds awful, but we already know what Blackburn has and it ain't good. I'd much rather have them trot out Deduno/DeVries/Walters/Hendriks/etc than Blackburn at this point.


    Edit: Ok, that was probably a bit mean. If he could put up 2008/2009 type of numbers, he'd be fine for eating some innings. I dont see it happening though.

    My point is I dont think Blackburn will bounce back and I hope he doesnt. If he has marginal success this year Gardy and Brass will think hes going to continue to improve and once again he will just implode. He is a terrible pitcher. I dont know how you can argue that he is a good pitcher. I dont care if he is on the Twins, he fricken sucks.

    There is a better chance that Sidney Ponson bounces back than Nick Blackburn as its been about as long for both since they were either effective.
    Ryan does his organization a huge disservice every time he mentions Nick as a possibility for next yr. If he truy believes it, keep quiet till he earns it.
