That's more than a "maybe", closer to "major", perhaps "significant" will suffice?
    lol... Is there a word between Maybe and Significant?

    Reasonably significant.

    I know... I know that's 2 words.

    The English Langauge is insufficiant if it doesn't have a single word for this!

    Confidence = (signal/noise) X sqrt(sample size).

    The English language is insufficient. Ergo Math.

As they got close to competing, they complemented their core with some key acquisitions. The Werth deal made no sense, too much money. But getting Span was great for them and wasn't like it was expensive. They could have spent 4-times as much and just signed Bourn and not lose Meyer. But Span likely makes more sense for them.

    The Twins could just trade Willingham and Morneau, but they won't get enough in return to make it worth it, might as well keep them, especially since Willingham has such a good contract.
    Well, you might be weird, but not in a bad way.
