    [QUOTE=Brock Beauchamp;182361]The problem isn't Pinto, it's Saltalamacchia. Sure, money isn't a problem for the Twins right now but that doesn't mean they should go out and overpay in both dollars and years for a guy who looks like a prime candidate for serious regression. Salty's inability to take a walk and his .372 BABIP in 2013 is pretty terrifying.

    I'm sure I didn't say overpay him. But the market is the market and if he makes us better I'm for it. Salty is a much better hitter LH so a platoon with Pinto would make some sense. Now if Pinto turns into the next great catcher you still have a decent trade chip that only cost money not prospects like some other options might. If Pinto bombs we don't have to watch Doumit and some AAAA guys catch.

    I assume the Twins are done with the bigger contract pitchers this year, though I still hope they grab a low risk higher upside guy like Halladay, Santana, Floyd or Neimann. I wouldn't want a Saltalamacchia signing to hinder the team from getting another impact arm next year though. It might never happen again but I don't want too many roadblocks just in case this new front office is here to stay. Next year the team loses Correia, Willingham and Burton, but that only clears out about $15 million.

    Appears that Hanigan is headed to Tampa, anyway.
