    However... Someone is going to have to keep the sharp knives and spoons away from Shane Wahl.
    You might not want to tell him that he also requested Eric Fryer to be his personal catcher.

    Well, after taking a second gander at his numbers last night, I'm happy with Nolasco.

    Literally, the only two guys that would rank higher would have been Tanaka (maybe) and Garza. Jimenez and Santana cost the draft pick. Kazmir I'd put at about the same level but with less track record. This is a quality signing.

    The Twins have already exceeded my modest early expectations.

    Just got off the phone with Ricky Nolasco. Said "I don't know" when asked if he was signing with #mntwins. Then had to take another call.

    I just took a deeper look at his stats as well. He's better than I thought, actually.

    Nice signing, particularly if it's only for three years.

    Without digging into it, why did he only pitch 80 some innings last season? Injury?

    The cobbler's children are the last ones to get a phone call.

    Or something like that.

    You're probably thinking of Josh Johnson. Nolasco pitched ~200 innings with two teams.

    Ditto.

    I can see Kazmir and Navarro as possibilities still.

    Hoping Nolasco isn't any more than 3 years and no more than 39m. And if a 3rd or more that it's a vested option. e.g. 200 IP, ERA under 4.00 type of thing.

    He got traded so you might be looking at split stats. He pitched 87 innings for the Dodgers and 112.1 for the Marlins.

    And Nolasco it is. I'll say it will be 3 years 50M.

    I am very excited to eat some crow pie tonight! Woo Hoo. I view this as a good start, not a good offseason.

    This is our rotation I think:

    1:
    2: Nolasco
    3:
    4: Corriea
    5: Gibson/Deduno/Meyer/Diamond

    It'd be awesome to add Garza and trade for someone like Hellickson.

    1. Garza
    2. Nolasco
    3. Hellickson
    4. Correia
    5. Gibson

    I wonder what the price is for Nolasco, as long as we didn't have to pay a butt load per year, we should have enough chips to get Garza.

    While Nolasco wasn't at the top of my wish list, apparently he was for the Twins, I love the Twins getting a solid arm early. Definitely have to add a few more pieces but this, if accurate, is a great start.
